Howie Carr On Whitey Bulger Trail: Dirty Rat Goes Out Yellow - Killer Coward At End

Author and Boston Herald columnist Howie Carr is covering the Whitey Bulger trial.

Whitey Bulger, you dirty rat!

In the end, he didn’t have the stones to take the stand. Not much of a surprise, but quite a disappointment, the trial ending not with a bang but a whimper.“I didn’t get a fair trial,“ he told the judge, “This was a sham. Do what youse want with me.

”Don’t worry, weese will. But what’s up with the word “youse,” Whitey? You’re supposed to be Irish, or so your lawyer Jay Carney said in his opening statement approximately 65 witnesses ago, 50 or so of whom swore under oath Whitey was indeed a rat.

And why did you call the trial a “sham?”

Surely Whitey meant to use Woody Allen’s classic description of his trial from the movie “Bananas:”

“It’s a travesty of a mockery of a sham of a mockery of a travesty of two mockeries of a sham.”

Whitey also complained his defense was “choked off” — a very poor choice of words, given how he’s charged with murdering the two Debs.
