alanshore.jpg James Spader's character named Alan Shore can definitely give one hell of a closing argument. I've posted him before and on Tuesday night the topic was Gitmo. Boston Legal often tackles the incompetence of this administration and whole bunch of issues that are smart and funny..."Guantanamo by the Bay": Alan Shore sues the United States on behalf of a client who was tortured for two years at a detention camp.

Shore: Your honor, I believe a lawyer should put his country before his client and for that reason I'm going to take the unusual step of asking you to dismiss my client's lawsuit.

Lawyer: Objection, it's a trick...

Shore: I agree, nobody knows how to fight this war, we should never the less defer to the Executive branch---who have indeed demonstrated a particular expertise. I for one just can't wait to see what they do next... My client is a whiner...a little duck tape, sexually violated,...He wants the government to show evidence. We're in a war...
