Become a lawyer. Then when you get called in for jury duty, you'll get tossed out during Voir Dire.

One of my rebbeim used to always tell them his profession was "professor of talmudic law." Never made it past that.

Buddy of mine showed up wearing a t-shirt with his firm's name. Didn't even have to open his mouth.  ;D

Crazy, people were thinking that the polls might be off and Trump will end up winning but that they will be off and Cruz will win with 20 points, who thought that? wow!

Even the big Nate Silver projected a 8 point win.

You're done with Trump?
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

They're still projecting it to be 14 percent not 20

It really isn't that hard (just make some serious biased/prejudiced opinions and you'll be kicked out in no time. The problem sometimes is that you might spend more than a day waiting to be called and asked questions.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

In other words, commit perjury. Good plan.

Am I the only one who would enjoy sitting on a jury?  It's a shame I'll almost certainly never have the chance.

I've always felt like that too. Though watching The People v. OJ Simpson has changed my mind a bit. Getting stuck on a case that lasts super long would suck.

Why was Cruz busy with a small group of supporters in the Bronx and a Chabad mock matzo bakery?

By strategizing correctly he can get more delegates than by winning.

Cruz Gets a Bronx Cheer
Quote
The Real Clear Politics average has Trump at 53% statewide, with 22% for John Kasich and 18.6% for Cruz. If those numbers hold, Trump would get all 14 statewide delegates. But Cruz and Kasich wouldn’t have to eat into Trump’s lead that much to deny him some of them.
Proportional representation at the district level works as follows: If a candidate wins a majority, he gets all three delegates. If no one does, the candidate with a plurality gets two and the second-place finisher gets one.
New York has closed primaries, so that only registered Republicans can vote in the GOP primary. And because New York City is so heavily Democratic, most of its districts have few Republicans. The restaurant where Cruz spoke yesterday is in the district of Rep. Jose Serrano, where Mitt Romney received just 3% of the vote in 2012. The Cook Political Report ranks it as the most Democratic district in the country (five of the city’s districts make the top 10).
But Serrano’s district has the same three-delegate allotment as all 26 others in New York, which means Republicans there have an outsize influence. Cruz doesn’t need to persuade many of them to earn himself a delegate, maybe two or even three. This is a great time to be a Bronx Republican, assuming you don’t mind living in the Bronx.
