The Deli Defense, Pt. 2: Please, Please Can the Ham

Proof Positive That Aaron Brown Doesn’t Read The Huffington Post: Despite our plea to retire the Deli Defense, there was Brown last night, prefacing a question to the foreman of the Texas grand jury that indicted Tom DeLay by dragging out the moldy metaphor: “There’s an old saying that a good prosecutor, perhaps even a bad one, can get a grand jury to indict a ham sandwich.” What’s the problem Aaron, didn’t we give you enough other options? Indicting a pastrami sandwich too spicy for you? Roast beef too rare? The Larry David too fishy? We can expand the menu -- salami, bologna, corned beef, liverwurst even… Just please, please can the ham.
