I respectfully submit that your argument is off-point.
The constitutional guarantee that an accused can:
1. Appear AND defend in person, AND
2. Appear AND defend by counsel
does NOT consist of too mutually exclusive rights.
Matter of fact, I have seen some cases in some
states where the accused DID IN FACT appear AND
defend in person AND by counsel -- the court treated
his as co-counsel in the same manner as they would
have had there been two lawyers present.
Of course Liars (lawyers) and the Black Frocked
whores (judges) think they are mutually exclusive.
But then they have an illegal monopoly they are trying
to preserve. Having a knowledgeable co-counsel accused
speak up in court quite often upsets the applecart
and makes things proceed less efficiently in the
otherwise normal fleecing operation.
