    2010.05.11 - "The irony is rich!"

    In honour of Judge Stan Strickland and his insight.

    Mr. Ashton used this expression today at the motion to preclude the death penalty hearing and it made me realize just how important this expression is in this trial.

    Because this expression is proving to have some staying power, it might be interesting to list how many things are ironic in this case, either before KC's arrest or between the defence and procecution sides.

    Watching the Lyon's and Baez's hypocrisy is amusing but on a serious note, it might be an eye-opening exercise from this perspective!
    It's the journey, not the destination.

    Disney (owns ABC) paying hundreds of thousands of dollars to KC. No...maybe this is criminal, not ironic.

    Ironic is getting a tattoo "bella vita" and...either being in prison the rest of your life, or getting the needle.

    The "ZANNY invisa NANNY" myspace created had a pic of "Dora The Explorer" a cartoon globe trotting child. not an adult.
    However, CA wanted us to believe Caylee was alive and traveling with Zanny and this is the only picture ever povided to us from her PC.

    Caylee murdered the day after Father's day, and Casey's trial starting the day after Mother's day. Oh how rich this irony is.

    Cindy screaming to the general public to get off of their bums and look for Caylee. It is "do as I say, not as I do" irony.

    The WFTV cameras were on but it looks like they deleted the recess when they put the video up. I did see them huddle, then I saw KC crying but had not seen CA talk to her as is reported happened before she cried.

    oh happy day!

    Oh, so ironic that they got rid of Judge Strickland because they thought they would get an easier judge and now they have a no nonsense judge that is sticking to the death penalty! Ironies of ironies!

    KC saying "I'm absolutely petrified....I know my mother will never forgive me." and yet there she is hearing after hearing. I wonder if KC ever wishes she had not made up all the nanny stuff.

    I agree. The demanding of Defense led to the new stricter Judge which is just so IRONIC. A big mistake.

    KC smiling at her archenemy (during her hearing of killing her daughter to spite her mother), and saying, "Happy Mothers' Day. I love you."

    The defense team wanting to have control over KC's friends' testimonies.

    "The death penalty is biased against young, white mothers" yet the statistics show that more black men are on death row.

    ICA cannot plead that she was stressed for caring for Caylee because she constantly left her child with the mother she claims to hate and the father she claims molested her. If she really thought her parents were terrible she would have finished high school and gotten a real job.

    She had more support than most single, high school dropouts. There are plenty of single moms with little education working hard every day to provide for their children. They don't kill them when parenting interferes with their need to party.

    I watched the recess, all huddled round and lots of animated conversation with Lyon and Mason and occasional contributions from Baez, Casey started crying while in this recess and Baez patted her on the head then rubbed/patted her back.

    The most ironic thing to me is how JB constantly talks about the media and how KC can't get a fair trial, even accusing JS and the SAO of being media hounds yet no one but JB has been on tv giving interviews.
    JUSTICE IS COMING HALEIGH AND CAYLEE

    YOU GOT TO LOVE JUDGE STRICKLAND
    At it's core, the defense counsel's motion accuses the undersigned of being a "self aggrandizing media hound". Indeed. The irony is rich.

    Motion granted.

    An old man turned ninety-eight
    He won the lottery and died the next day
    It's a black fly in your Chardonnay
    It's a death row pardon two minutes too late
    And isn't it ironic... don't you think

    For Caylee - may justice be served!

    The irony of JB getting his wish for Judge Strickland to be off the case, and then getting his wish PLUS the added benefit of the most no-nonsense judge on the bench in Orange County, Florida. And the icing on the cake is that I have not seen the smirk on JB's face since the judge change!! Be careful what you wish for, JB!!

    It is ironic that CA looks so forelorn and pitiful in the courtroom, slumping over with bad posture and holding her hands as if in prayer. She is at last doomed by a situation that she can not control and it seems to be getting the best of her. I can't help wonder if she is thinking of the past and the mistakes she may have made in raising her daughter. I would like to believe that she has regrets and thinks of her lovely grandchild whose life was taken to soon.

    Well now, speaking of George.....

    Just yesterday, George & Cindy were both in court attendance, and just yesterday, the ever so eloquent Linda Drane Burdick subtly let it be known that June 15th is the date they are going with for Caylee's disappearance, and wouldn't you just know it, the very following day, today, George is absentee from the court room?

    And such an important day at that, when the presiding Judge rules on a Death Penalty for George's daughter, one would expect her father would be there, no?

    Gosh, I hope George isn't suffering from some sort of guilt for lying to the State about the morning activities of June 16th.

    Oh, the irony is rich, indeed!
    Casey says, “the b!tch knows what it feels like now,” referring to her mother, Cindy.

    Isn't it ironic...

    Caylee seems to be gazing up at one of the most important pieces of evidence against her murderer.
