Sartorially challenged

In Conrad Black’s Chicago, 7th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals bail application reported on today by CTV (and elsewhere) an adroit bit of language is used. The application says: “the government’s proof of corrupt intent was desperately threadbare.”

The phrase suits an important adversarial purpose: postponing further mincing over the legal value of what the US Supreme Court has left of this prosecution to the appeal proper and getting directly to business at hand — interim release.
