I like Rudy, I think he's a great character, very personable guy, but please please please do not have him do the appellate argument. He just is not an appellate lawyer.
I'd do worse than Rudy. OK not really, but ideally they would get a Kathleen Sullivan type. (Not that she'd take the rep, but if she did, jeez, game over.)

I would do a bunch of E before the argument so I could match his flop sweat.

This is just really funny to think about. Dosing a lawyer who is going before a federal appeals panel with e then watching and giggling from the remote viewing room, I mean.
There are drugs you can take to control excessive sweating for media appearances, you know.

Have people gotten the joke yet about Buttigieg being a CIA / intelligence agency Trojan horse candidate who just so happens to have the same exact speaking cadences and positions as Obama?
It was really, really obvious to anyone paying attention, and it makes sense of how Biden is planning to staff his administration.
They all have phony stories about their military service.

Wife just told me that she told an old lady at the store, "Happy Thanksgiving!" and the old lady said it back with enthusiasm—glad someone noticed—but then just about started crying right in the checkout line. No kids will be allowed to visit this year.
Wife awkwardly stood at social distance, unable by rule to comfort the lonely, old, crying woman—who will not live long.
The stat about Chinese women hanging onto life until after the Lunar New Year always struck me as a remarkable testament to just how strong grannies can be.

Bureaucrats overlook this level of passion at their peril.

I think, had I been born black, I would by now have written a rollicking, thousand-plus page comic novel about the apparently-instinctive urge of white women to humiliate and sissify black men.
The racial fears of white men that the black man will get rapey and make a run at the white women, leading to centuries of antipathy between black and white men -- hello? Women love pulling that shit, seeing men have a civil war over them. They think it's funny on some level.
(And it is. It's been incredibly funny since before the pre-classical days of legend, when a face launched a thousand ships.)

It strikes me as a somewhat odd impulse to want to buy coffee that accords with your political biases. I'd prefer to buy from a company that emphasizes the quality and price of their coffee.
I can see not buying from a brand that tries to force me to drink politics with my brew, but picking a brand based on its affirmative politics is just weird.
I find people who root for sports teams pretty weird, too. Maybe I just have no business talking about advertising from the consumer side.

Yes, but as with ASD and other vogue diagnoses that can help with procedural outcomes in dealing with schools, it is both over- and under-diagnosed.
There is a heterdox tendency to assume that because some disease or disorder state has an associated grift, there can't be any substance to it at all. But there are lots of race grifts, and last I checked black people (say) are real.
The reality is that there are people suffering from real ADHD who will never get diagnosed or treated and in consequence will be underemployed, never marry, and feel their whole lives like a shameful fuck up with no integrity who is always lying about what they will do.
