No chance

I was musing about Orly Taitz facing Scott Tepper in Mississippi and a phrase from a movie came to mind. I couldn’t quite whip out what I was thinking of, but the concept was that an attorney who was a specialist in birthers would be a pretty dangerous character for Taitz to tangle with.

To try to find the reference, I did a Google query on “stand a chance against a fully.” What I found are perhaps some metaphors for the upcoming hearing:

  • [Re: the Borg.] Their ships don’t stand a chance against a fully-functional cube of any type

    and most of them are in error. As every single one of them the lesser stands a chance!
    A chance do to an act of God, a chance do to accidental damage to bigger, a chance just might be like the chance to win $500,000,000 in a lottery.
    I chance in a billion, is still a chance, and that is why people spend money to buy a lottery ticket.

    the world is inspired by the “never had a chance ” winner, who wins when he never had a chance.

    Sure, in a world of quantum physics anything is possible, even if it is totally implausible… Your point?

    I’m waiting for you to post something that isn’t illogical, asinine or strangely pathetic.

    I’m more likely to win the lottery.

    Ah, but there you are: we are no longer in 721. Trials are no longer decided by the judge drawing lots, or the two sides fighting it out in mortal combat.

    Looking at these pictures of Mr Tepper on the intertoobs, being the accused party, he would probably choose jousting anyway.

    No, today they argue from these strange books that they call the law. You know, not Vattel, that is just a treatise, but actual law like Blackstone and stuff.

    And when the results are logically obtained, trying the same thing over and over again when it has always failed before, is folly.

    And a waste of time and money – to the government, and thus the tax payers.

    Birfing is a sign that they’ve already conceded the election.

    I am sure they explain it to their little conspiratorial selves by saying that all elections are rigged, therefore all efforts must be directed into other means. A Clausewitzian move, if you will.
