Saying that the judge is acting like a "squeamish virgin" was probably not the best way to get him to rule in your favor.
That's the lesson perennial loser Martin Lindstedt discovered today when that judge, U. S. District Court Judge Richard E. Dorr, ruled against Lindstedt's attempt to reinstate his lawsuit against Governor Matt Blunt.
"Upon due consideration of the arguments and suggestions of the Plaintiff, Plaintiffs’ Motion to Alter or Amend Judgment is hereby DENIED." You couldn't blame the judge if he was trying to emphasize his decision with the capital letters, but that's just the way judges write all of their decisions.
In his petition to have his lawsuit reinstated, Lindstedt, whose mailing address is the Newton County Jail, where he awaits trial on statutory sodomy charges, claimed he was being railroaded by county officials and then lectured and scolded Judge Dorr.
"This court acts like the prostitute who discovers that men will pay for sex- that it has other purposes than procreation." He said that the judge is "making up the law as he goes along."
Lindstedt brought suit against Blunt for not allowing him to put his nickname "Mad Dog" on the ballot and for not listing his website on the secretary of state's website as he did for other candidates.
