It's bad enough when Sarah twits away on the internet, putting forth her wisdom in 140 characters or less to her mindless bots who can't read a 'policy statement' to save their lives! Judging by the endless praise her book gets on her OFFICIAL Facebook site, she is reaching out to people who don't read much to begin with. Twitter fits their reading comprehension levels. Got that.
But ... somehow, for some reason ... I expect more from a lawyer. Call me naive. I know many attorneys, and for the most part, they avoid outright lies. Yes, you have to parse (very carefully) how they put forth their argument. Yes, you have to watch closely for what they didn't say, as much as what they DO say.
Thomas Van Flein ACTUALLY quoted a Twitter post, by 'someone' calling himself Levi Johston05 in a court pleading?
Twitter posts? Really?
This is both hilarious and thought provoking.
The obvious conclusion is, as always: if he used a fake Twitter account to support his argument, what OTHER fake/false information is in the pleadings?
What does this say about him, as an attorney?
-That he isn't very concerned with facts.
-That he was confident his request for non-public proceedings would be granted, so nobody would expose his use of a Twitter post as unreliable evidence?
-That he has the same viewpoint as Sarah does: If you say it often enough, it becomes a fact! (and faster if it's on Twitter!)
- That Van Flein (and his associates) don't understand that the Internet, as good as it is at disseminating lies, is ALSO a great tool for truth.
Tommy. Honey.... you have embarassed yourself with this one!
I have written to LeviJohnston05 and asked him to come clean on the joke; he should get a LOT of exposure as the guy who fooled Sarah's big time attorney!
Oh .. wait, that account is INACTIVE NOW ... That must have happened MONTHS ago, when it was Exposed and Debunked by Conan O'Brian who made a public apology blah blah blah ... I guess Tommy and his team of Legal Eagles aren't much better at 'fact checking' than Sarah is!
Lucky for the rest of us, in the sane world, there are bloggers!
SO, Tommy .... join the 21st Century! Here is a reality: Just because Sarah 'says' something, does't make it true! And ... just because a Twitter account has a 'name to it' doesn't make it authentic.
Oh ... and to prove my point, Tommy, I opened a Twitter account myself, I did it under someone ELSE's name!
