There will be times when things just break badly for you. You won’t always live up to the expectations you have for yourself and that others have for you. It happens to all of us. And when it happens it can be tough, believe me. Let me just say on that point that people who say there’s no such thing as bad publicity have no idea what they’re talking about. There is definitely bad publicity. Being on the wrong end of a Jon Stewart monologue is bad publicity.
Solicitor general DONALD VERRILLI, JR., who was roundly criticized for his oral arguments at the Supreme Court in defense of the Affordable Care Act; the critiques were issued by the likes of CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin and Jon Stewart.
For what it’s worth, Toobin apologized yesterday. I think Stewart perhaps owes him the same.
