Trey Gowdy is worth watching, this time as he reams Direction of National Parks Service

You can see the video at the Black Sphere.  I highly recommend that you listen to it.  He’s on fire, but manages to stay logical, factual, and focused.  (I chose to link to the Black Sphere, rather than to load the video here, because that’s a site I like a lot, so I’m happy to send it traffic.)

I believe Gowdy is a lawyer by training.  He must be a kick-ass attorney.  Director Jarvis is patently and deservedly deeply uncomfortable.  This is the kind of cross-examination that is one for the books.

    I saw some of that on TV and should have guessed that he was a lawyer. I wish more Congressional hearing examinations could be that cogent. Some of them are hopeless. The zinger about the OWS contrast was great.

    As I was saying. NPS; from Ranger Rick to Ranger PRICK in one day. As Churchill advised those being conquered by the Nazi’s, “Make them feel even in their fleeting moment of brutish triumph, that they are the moral outcasts of mankind”.

    Unfortunately, the park ranger poobah reminded me of Captain Kangaroo while Gowdy looked a little like Putin. If I were a liberal, my feelings would tell me that nasty Vladimir was attacking my beloved skipper. 
    Since feelings trump logic or rightness, I declare the Park Service the winner.

    The actions of the NPS show the contempt for the ordinary citizen that our administration has.  I have begun keeping a stack of post cards so I can jot a handwritten note of thanks when I see courage as exhibited by Representative Trey Gowdy  (I don’t send objections because to be quite frank, when Barbara Boxer says something so outrageous as her comment equating Republicans to domestic abusers, nothing is going to change their mind.).  I would encourage others to do likewise.  Being a postcard, they are not delayed for inspection and they appreciate the time spent to send them.

    I won’t comment on your assumption that it requires law school to stay logical, factual, and focused; as we both know plenty – too many – of graduates of those institutions who aren’t capable of any of the three.

    I expressed myself badly, jj, because I agree with you. I was just thinking that, with those abilities, he must be one hell of a lawyer.  I’ve met way too many lawyers who lack those skills.
