Thompson Watch™

Jack Thompson gets the boot on Ars Technica (thanks Mike Martinez) has word that the attorney's attempts to voluntarily remove himself from his current anti-gaming crusade (story) have been rejected by the judge on the case, at which point the judge booted him from the case and rescinded his temporary license to practice law in Alabama, saying "Mr. Thompson's actions before this Court suggest that he is unable to conduct himself in a manner befitting practice in this state." In an ironic twist that would make Alanis Morrisette roll over in her hot tub, Mr. Thompson ends up defending the constitution as he defends himself: "Did this Court somehow, in the last three weeks, manage to repeal the First, Fifth, and Fourteenth Amendments to the United States Constitution?"

Of course. Thompson believes the right of free speech exclusively belongs to him. As do all the other rights.  
I'm not even really here.
