Cicero: Is there anything he can’t do?


Minstrel Boy channels some kickass Cicero to think about the attorney scandal. From In Verrem:

Gentlemen of the court, at this great political crisis there has been offered to you, not through man’s wisdom but almost as the direct gift of heaven, the very thing you most need—a thing that will help more than anything else to mitigate the unpopularity of your Order and the suspicion surrounding these courts. A belief has become established—as harmful to the republic as it is to yourselves—that these courts, with your senators as the jury, will never convict any man, however guilty, if he has sufficient money.

The problem, of course, is that while Quintus Hortensius had shame, George W. Bush does not. Via litbrit.
