Solicitor General Donald Verrilli.
At the start, Verrilli stammered like a dorky guy in an 80s movie trying to ask out the hottest chick in class.â€” Philip Klein (@philipaklein) March 27, 2012

Reading the transcript of today’s Supreme Court hearing, it suddenly hit me: Donald Verrilli is the new Billy Cundiff.â€” Alex Koppelman (@AlexKoppelman) March 27, 2012
