I understand that The Dread Pirate Kimberlin can be annoying, even dangerous, at times, but there is a tradition of mocking bad guys. As the picture at left of Charlie Chaplin in The Great Dictator shows, no one has been so powerfully dangerous as to be exempt from be laughed at.
In his most recent motion in the Virginia Walker v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuit, TDPK complains that he is being mocked on the Internet. Well, yes, he is. He is a public figure who I believe has made and is making a fool of himself.
Until Aaron Walker’s lawyer files his response to the Kimberlin motion and/or discovery comes due in the case, things will probably be relatively quiet. Through his many years in and out of court cases, Brett Kimberlin has made many claims that don’t pass the laugh test. I’ll be using this break in the action to review some of the odd claims TDPK has made.
Let’s start with being a political prisoner. His claim that he was held as a political prisoner in federal prison is well documented. One version goes that he was held as punishment for saying that he had been Dan Quayle’s marijuana dealer.
Let’s think that through.
<mockery>Brett Kimberlin gets busted for dope dealing, impersonating a federal officer, bombing charges, etc., and gets 50+ years. A few years into the sentence, he makes a claim about a prominent Republican politician, and when his parole comes up … wait for it … the Clinton Administration lets him out of prison. When he violates his parole … wait for it … the Clinton Administration sends him back. Not only that, but when George W. Bush gets into office, he’s so angry with the guy who caused trouble for his father’s Veep that … wait for it … he lets TDPK out of jail. All this assumes that TDPK is significant enough to be noticed by folks that far up the food chain.</mockery>
Discovery is due not later than 5 October. Mr. Kimberlin has said that he won’t cooperate regardless of the judge’s order. He’s asked that Aaron Walker’s lawyer be sanctioned. We’ll see.
Tick, tick, tick, tick, …
