Estrich: A Professor of Eminent Domain
Oregon Magazine ^ | February 1, 2006 | Larry Leonard

Posted on 02/01/2006 7:00:29 PM PST by WaterDragon

It happened late in January on the FOX network's Hannity and Colmes program, with the pretty blonde, Estrich, in her abrasive voice subbing for the absent abrasive Colmes. The subject was eminent domain, a process by which a government "condemns" private property and takes it for "public" use. Until recently, I had never seen it used for any other purpose than to make way for a road or a public development of some kind. A park, a facility to keep equipment, like fire trucks, in a central location. A place to put a school. Those sorts of things.

Then, the U.S. Supreme Court allowed an east coast community to take private homes by this process, and turn the land over to equally private contractors who promised to build large scale dwellings, like hotels or condos. This would raise the value of the land, thus increasing tax revenues to the municipality. Conservatives across the nation were shocked when the court did it. They are incensed to this day. Stupid legal decisions like this are why they backed Thomas for the big court, and now the two new guys.....

There's a pretty blonde Estrich? The only one I know is that ugly hag who used to run Dukakis's campaign. Maybe she has a granddaughter? An adopted granddaughter?

Nah. She's had a facelift and looks better than she used to.

I'm sorry, but no amount of plastic surgery is going to reconcile me to that phrase.

And her voice still sounds like someone poured marbles into a blender and hit Frappe.

That's is impressive work. Any surgeon who can make Estrich look almost presentable like this, could probably make an alligator look like Miss America.

She had MAJOR plastic surgery. She didn't look like the same person. It took me a few moments to realize it was Susan Estrich. Voice gave her away.

Face transplant? Is this the French woman's face, transplanted to Estrich?

I saw that show and Larry Leonard is correct. I also saw O'Reilly absolutely tear her apart on his show one night regarding the book she wrote about the Hildebeast. He was pinning her down for the reasons Hilly should be elected president other than being a woman. Estrich was so incompetent, she acted like she was soused.

Now if they could just do plastic surgery on here brain!!!

Might be able to stomach the voice if the brain actually worked for the "right" side.

She was sh*t-faced that night on O'Reilly.

She looked pretty good the other night on FOX but the croaking toad voice was still there.

Her plastic surgeon and the makeup people at FOX should get an award.

Yes - usually from I see is that when that sort of things is done, they look younger, but uglier. This is an exception.

I saw her on a day or so ago and her face lift had disappeared. I think it was just a makeup job on Hannity and Coffins.

I didn't catch her with O'Reilly,but I've seen her on in the past (pre-facelift) when she certainly acted like she was drunk.IIRC,It was H&C before the '04 election and I was surprised Fox allowed her on the air.

I figured she was soused on Orile but I thought to myself, Nah, they wouldn't let her come on like that. I guess I was wrong.

Looks like she had a lengthy consult with Gretta's plastic surgeon.

No matter the beauty on the outside, what lies beneath is a heart as black as coal.

Great column. In addition to all her more obvious character defects, I think estrich is a lush and a dike. Just what we need teaching college kids principles of democracy.

It looks like a facelift; an eye lift; some fat relocated in the undereye area; botox on the forehead; and resurfacing. Whoever did the work was masterful. I didn't recognize her until she spoke

Great description of her voice. It's distinctive.

Best description came here on FR months and months ago (by who? I don't remember): She sounds like Harvey Fierstein doing an impression of Carol Channing.

Sadly, that's not far off the mark.

Every time I hear her voice, it reminds me of an elderly Aunt of mine who smoked two packs of Chesterfields a day....

1. I'm sorry, but no amount of plastic surgery is going to reconcile me to that phrase.

2. And her voice still sounds like someone poured marbles into a blender and hit Frappe.

I agree with both comments - but - it is what comes out of her mouth - the content and the grating noise - that absolutely turns me off.

Oh and the same goes for hillary clinton but instead of grating sound, hillary clinton screeches. But I will have to add each have the ugliest expression on their face. I know every freeper has seen the picture taken last night of hillary clinton. How can anyone screw up their face and be so ugly - and the dems have two of them. It must be the hate that corrodes ---- forget what I've said you two are correct!!!

But....but....but.....Susan is one of the socialists that conservatives like to love, isn't she?

Along with those other cuddly socialists like Camille Paglia, Christopher Hitchens and Joseph Lieberman.

These charming little Orwellian piglets right out of "Animal Farm" root up conservative truffles every once in a while and the Right goes ga-ga over them.

Friends of my enemies are my enemies.
