Raoul Felder is a lawyer.

Business As Usual

 

Tiger Woods withdrawing from golf to work on his family problems was a brilliant maneuver. He went from a place where any person from pundit to straphanger who was able to put together a cohesive sentence tried to outdo each other in efforts to revile him, but now root for him to succeed. America loves […]

Madoff Madness

 

There is nobody this side of a lunatic asylum that could have a kind word or thought about Bernard Madoff. He has indiscriminately destroyed the remainder of many people’s lives, made wastes of the earlier parts of their lives wherein they worked and saved for a financially secure old age that will now never happen, […]

What’s On Our Minds

 

Believe it or not, we read and think a great deal of the New York Times columnist Bob Herbert. He is clever, smart, and a good writer. But recently we think he has made a big mistake (besides writing for the New York Times). McCain recently ran a TV ad that we believe was devastating, […]

Such a Fine Mismating

 

There is a Lorenz Hart lyric that about sums it up: When love congeals It soon reveals The faint aroma of performing seals… He further mentions, The conversation with the flying plates… And, The fine mismating of a him and her… These could be the lyrics to the most entertaining show in the Hamptons…certainly, at […]

Experiencing Obama

 

Did you hear the one about the Jew who says to his psychiatrist that he believes the psychiatrist is plotting his destruction? The psychiatrist tells him that he has a sick delusion and should not worry, since the psychiatrist is there to protect him. The poor jerk is happy until he looks up at the […]

If Spitzer, Why Not Clinton?

 

Don’t get us wrong! We have no love for Eliot Spitzer. He tried to have Raoul removed as chairman of the New York State Commission on Judicial Conduct because of the book we wrote called Schmucks (which he admitted to never having read). We did not believe that a book is an IED, but apparently […]

Expedience and Experience

 

Like senior citizens stampeding into a restaurant for the Early Bird Special, commentators are falling all over each other in trying to declare that the Obama speech on race was the best speech since the Gettysburg Address, or at least since their Bar Mitzvah speeches (usually begun, “Today I am a fountain pen …” or […]

Some Super Delegate

 

First, the good stuff. 1. Hillary Clinton lost one super delegate. 2. The U.S. Attorney’s Office in New York was able to keep a lid of privacy on the whole subject until ready to make a public announcement. This is very rare in public life today. 3. The public now knows you can get hookers […]

Some Pieces of Our Minds

 

In all of the thousands of photographs of Hillary on the campaign trail, she always appears wearing trousers — not even one photograph of her wearing a skirt. Not a peep on the subject from any commentator or member of the media. Yet, if on a particularly steamy day campaigning in Florida or Georgia, Senator […]

Camelot or Cesspool?

 

The Kennedys recently endorsed Barack Obama, and Teddy Kennedy drew a parallel with President Kennedy — a vision of a new Camelot rising like a phoenix from the ashes of the Bush administration. Either he was addressing the largest group of amnesiacs ever gathered in one place in history or the media and much of […]
