Those damn trial lawyers
I expect Cheney to take every opportunity he can find tonight to remind us that Edwards is one of those evil trial lawyers. Because we elitist liberals are so out of touch with the common people, we might not be sure why they hate trial lawyers so much. But the Republicans have attained oneness with the common folk. They know that trial lawyers are a blight upon this good land. They know that when they say the code words "trial lawyer" the average American immediately thinks of rogues like these:

Oh wait. These are fictional trial lawyers. I'm sure when the republicans sneer at trial lawyers, they have real life trial lawyers in mind. Like this guy:

Just in case you haven't seen the movies, the fictional lawyers are Gregory Peck as Atticus Finch in "To Kill a Mockingbird," Spencer Tracy as Henry Drummond in "Inherit the Wind," Jimmy Stewart as Paul Biegler in "Anatomy of a Murder," and Raymond Burr as Perry Mason.

Update: Looks like I was wrong on this one.
