    if that's the same interview with geragos and toobin the CNN transcript leaves it out. they have sections of "CROSSTALK"

    i heard him say it - played by randi rhodes i think...

    here's a link to a reference to it:

    "I think they're throwing the case," attorney Mark Geragos announced Tuesday night on Anderson Cooper's CNN show, "Self-Defense or Murder?" The discussion on that program, which airs at 10 weeknights, is fascinating. This special Cooper series is running for just the duration of the trial, but it certainly is one of the strongest programs in cable news these days.

    Fellow analyst Jeffrey Toobin called Geragos' throw-the-case comment "absurd."

    This is a list of 76 universities for Rush Limbaugh that endorse global warming denial, racism, sexism, and GOP lies by broadcasting sports on over 170 Limbaugh radio stations.

      See my comment above...I do recall that.

      But as I said, the way I heard those comments was not that he was seriously alleging the state was intentionally trying to lose for political reasons (as some have alleged), but rather that they were just doing so bad it seemed they were. And if look at the entire context of the discussion, that's what they were talking about...how incompetent he thought the state was. But not a serious accusation that they were trowing it.  I saw it as kind of like when you're watching football, and your team is doing so bad you say "Are the intentionally trying to lose?" That's how I interpreted his comments.

      Again, you're right, he absolutely said it, but I'm just not sure about the context.

      Dammit Jim, I'm a lawyer, not a grammarian. So sue me.
