. . . but she doesn't seem to be referred to as "The Bulldog."
Except possibly by herself.
And maybe not even by herself.
Except in that ad.
The Confessor is aware that Your Plainsman does what he can to protect him or her from questionable advertising claims broadcast on The Ticket.
Lately the P1 has been subjected to what has to be one of the worst, most tone-deaf ads ever to cause our jaws to drop with its awfulness. Yes, I'm referring to the one offered by domestic relations attorney Kelly McClure, principal of The McClure Law Group.
The most jaw-dropping aspect of which is that she believes it will appeal to "high-net-worth" men, presumably possessed of a touch of class, to make reference in her ad to her physical allure. I'll say this – she dresses absolutely killer:
Which you can do if you charge fees to high-net-worth individuals, I guess. As for the rest, I will leave it to the always-fair Confessor to determine. For a woman in her mid-fifties – sure, that's worth a whistle from gentlemen of a certain age, if you like those sorts of . . . amendments. And an impressively volumized, if dubious, coiffure.
I have heard of the McClure Law Group and I even knew that Ms. McClure cleaned up fair. But I was suspicious of the claim that she is known as "The Bulldog." We've all heard of "Jim Adler, The Texas Hammer" (whose moniker, truth to tell, is probably also self-created). But I have never heard of "Kelly McClure, The Bulldog." Or "Kelly 'Bulldog' McClure."
So if she is generally, or even a little bit, known as "The Bulldog" outside of her premises -- indeed, beyond her recent advertising -- it has escaped the notice of The Internet.
She would seem more credibly canine if she got her grammar right. She declaims that she is "sometimes referred as The Bulldog." She's missing a "to" in there, although I'm not going to thrash you with the explanation. (Because I don't zackly know it.) Maybe she used to drive bus.
Could she be known as "The Bulldog" among those in the know in the Dallas domestic relations community, which is probably one helluva tough community with all of the high-dollar marriages and divorces around here? Sure. She's obviously very successful, and you can't succeed in that very challenging, emotionally-charged practice if you haven't got some sand. So if she wants to be, or become, known as "The Bulldog," fine by me.
But if any Confessors work at the McClure Law Group, do a little experiment for Your Plainsman and drop us a report: Next time you see her in the hallway, say "Hey, Bulldog!" If she gives you the stinkeye, just tell her you were influenced by her memorable advertising on The Ticket. Or you were singing the Beatles song. Or you thought she had gone to Yale.
Gentlemen: Let's keep the comments gracious here.
