Whitey Bulger with his dogs.

For $2.7 million — and counting — surely Whitey Bulger’s defense attorney Jay Carney must have come up with some memorable lawyering while his client was being convicted on 31 of 32 counts.

And sure enough, he did. As I went through my notes last night I saw one unforgettable line after another. Rest easy, taxpayers, we got our money’s worth.

Consider July 23 — Stevie “Dr. Mengele” Flemmi was discussing his dental techniques when Carney suddenly stood up, as his client, Whitey Bulger, winced in pain. Carney got the judge’s attention and asked to approach the bench.

“My client has been writing notes,” Carney said, “that it is desperate that he be given a bathroom break at this time.”
