Here's your daily link to Dave McKenna's brilliant "Cranky Redskins Fan's Guide to Dan Snyder," which we'll be posting until Daniel Snyder's dumbass libel suit lies down in darkness.
Daniel Snyder recently refiled his dumbass lawsuit in the Superior Court of the District of Columbia. His lawyer on the complaint is one Jacqueline Browder Chaffee. We don't know much about Ms. Browder except what we can glean from her lawfirm's website:
During law school, Jacqueline served as the Symposium Editor of The Wake Forest Law Review, where she oversaw the law review's twentieth annual Business Law Symposium Issue on the topic of "Duties of the Modern Corporate Executive."
Ack. Blaughg. Do the duties of a Modern Corporate Executive include stepping on the neck of a journalist who dared poke fun at said executive?
While obtaining her B.A. in American Studies from the University of Notre Dame, Jacqueline worked as a press assistant in the office of Senator Fred Thompson as well as a constituent services intern in the office of Senator Bill Frist.
Browder was just a callow undergrad at that time, but her choice of internships is interesting. Before he was a senator, Fred Thompson was minority counsel for the Republican Party during the Senate Watergate Committee hearings, during which he passed information to the Nixon White House. Good guy to have as a mentor.
