Jack Thompson to subpoena ... the president!?

The craziest man to ever be declared sane, Jack Thompson, has pulled one of his wackiest moves yet as he has filed to subpoena George W. Bush for a deposition in his bid to keep his law license. Thompson of course is facing the loss of his right to practice law, thanks to him being something of a complete pudstick and facing two ethics complaints from the Florida Bar. The trial begins on November 26th and surely will provide hilarity, especially if Jacky Boy's attempts to call Bush to the stand is any indication of what we're going to see. GamePolitics has the scoop, as per usual, and this is Jacky Races' statement on the matter:

I have already sent the George and Jeb Bush subpoenas to Referee Tunis for her signature. She may run on this, but she can’t hide. She must sign the subpoenas, as her filing [of the Thompson Bar complaints] with the federal court has made the testimony I seek in the depositions of both men highly relevant to my Bar defense.

If the President’s position is that I do not get to depose him while he is in office, then I would note that Paula Jones' lawyers were able to convince a federal judge otherwise. If President Bush is successful is convincing the court that I must wait until he leaves office, that’s something I am prepared to do.

As GamePolitics points out, this could be a shrewd move on the part of Thompson Directory. If Thompson has to wait until Bush's presidency is up, that gives him until 2009, effectively stalling the whole humiliating process. Of course, that Jacky Brown thinks George Bush has any real reason to appear when most politicians don't even know who the hell he is indicates a logic that only he could fathom. Looks like someone's running out of ideas.
