Rusty chokes on own words

Looks like Rusty Hardin must be choking on his own words! Remember this: The fine line between bold and stupid

And now we hear from Clemens' agent, good ole Rusty Hardin, that Clemens is not worried about whatever Pettitte might say when he testifies, well, I think that's just false bravado. There's a fine line between being bold/aggressive and stupid. I think Clemens & Co. are crossing the line. Why even make the statements. Just keep quiet until required to talk. They've talked enough. No need to say any more.

Clemens’s lawyer said Pettitte would help, not hurt, his former teammate. “We have nothing to fear about what Andy may testify to,” Rusty Hardin, Clemens’s lawyer in Houston, said in a telephone interview. “Everyone says Andy is honest; we have no reason to believe he will lie.”


What if 1) Everyone universally agrees that Pettitte IS honest and 2) He tells the truth and that contradicts everything Clemens has said? Then what, Rusty? An indictment, I guess. Or, are you going to accuse Pettitte of lying under oath?

Rather than accusing Pettitte of lying, Roger's telling everyone Pettitte misunderstood, or "mis-remembers". I had to check to see if that was even a word (it is, sadly).

More later.
