PageSix- Bill Cosby‘s defense team argued Wednesday that the disgraced comedian is now too blind to recognize the many women who have accused him of sexual assault.
“In the materials the prosecution has turned over … there are photographs. Mr. Cosby cannot look at a photograph,” defense lawyer Angela Agrusa told Montgomery County Judge Steven O’Neill. “He can’t tell you what is in that picture.”
O’Neill disagreed, saying there’s no evidence that Cosby can’t remember what happened.
The defense attorney then insisted that Cosby “may very well have memory issues.”
“He is physically impaired,” Agrusa said. “I do not have the skills to be able to explain to him how to see. We can’t test his memory because he can’t see. He’s 79 years old.”
R.I.P. Cliff Huxtable. Gone, and a YouTube cleansing away from being forgotten.
Seriously though, is there a person that has benefited more from blurry vision than Bill Cosby? First he used it to get his rocks off with non-consenting women through the use of drugs for decades, and now he's trying to use it to claim he's innocent of having sex with non-consenting women through the use of drugs for decades? I've heard of fighting fire with fire, but "I can no longer see the people who claim they could barely see when I raped them" seems like a pretty shitty way to defend yourself against - conservatively speaking - hundreds of women who claim you've raped them.
Eh, what do I know? The glove worked for OJ, so maybe "he can't see shit, must acquit" works for another public figure who couldn't possibly be more guilty. I don't know how being an old fuck whose body is quitting on you one sense at a time exonerates you of dozens upon dozens of acts of sexual misconduct, but I guess that's why I'm not a defense attorney in the high profile case of a serial rapist. Apparently you just have to conjure up a tagline that features a rhythmic "if this, then that" and is so catchy that it makes the jury forget that it relies upon completely disjointed logic. Now that I think about it, it might be the only argument that stands half of a chance of getting Bill Cosby's date raping ass off the hook.
