We're talking about a standard where an attorney can literally be sleeping during critical portions of the trial and can still satisfy the performance prong. You're also ignoring that there is a prejudice prong.
Finally, there is also the problem that "my counsel let me present the defense I wanted and therefore was deficient" isn't exactly the kind argument that will have a judge jumping to overturn a conviction.
Protip: IAC claims are almost never won. Please never give advice stating that some conduct is "ineffective assistance for sure."
dude, I thought it was fairly obvious that I was being lighthearted but apparently the message didn't get through, I'm not putting on a CLE here chill out
