The odor of mendacity -- Judge McAfee's line -- where it came from

Did you know where that line came from? It's from Tennessee Williams' novel "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" which was made into a movie by the same name starring Elizabeth Taylor, Paul Newman, Burl Ives, and others. IMDB link.

Big Daddy (Burl Ives) was a wealthy southern land owner whose days were numbered, and his nuclear family was hovering around, trying to curry favor in hopes of a sizable chunk of the fortune that might soon be thrust into probate. Big Daddy could see through it all, and in one subtle declaration noted that there was an "odor of mendacity" present.

So when Judge McAfee, in his ruling regarding Fani Willis and Nathan Wade and their prosecution of Donald Trump, declared there was an "odor of mendacity," one has to wonder it the Judge is an old movie fan or a Tennessee Williams fan.

Perhaps the analogy is that the smell of money and power inspired Willis and Wade to go after Donald Trump. Whereas, the judge sniffed out the mendacity.
