Just a simple Cherokee trial lawyer, Barkman has been forcing his opinions on others in print since, for reasons that passeth understanding, he was an unsuccessful candidate for state representative in 2002. His philosophy: "If people had wanted me to be nice, they should've voted for me."

The Skinny

From Wampum (new and improved!), a debunking of the myth that the Cobell plaintiffs were offered $7 billion to settle the case and rejected it, the implication being they got what they deserved for being greedy. Never happened. The government never offered a dime to resolve the Cobell suit. And now you know. Also, Cobell is definitely appealing. I wish them luck, of course, but unless Obama wins and appoints one or two new justices before this hits the Supreme Court, I won't be holding my breath.
