I concluded my post just below on the NFL’s decision not to allow the U.S. Border Patrol to run a seemingly uncontroversial recruiting ad at the Super Bowl by suggesting a disconnect between corporate American and “real America.” Good evidence of that disconnect is found in the saga of former Assistant Secretary of Defense Charles “Cully” Stimson. Most readers will recall that Stimson predicted or warned that elite law firms representing Gitmo detainees would lose business as a result of their pro bono work. But, as Stimson should have expected, corporate America stood behind its elite law firms, and Stimson apologized and soon thereafter resigned.
These days, the mentality manifested by elite corporations is quite similar to, but in some respects slightly more “progressive” (i.e. out-of-touch) than, that of the elite lawyers who represent them.
