Fallout from the Zimmerman trial

Published: Wednesday, July 24, 2013 at 04:02 PM.

Maybe Zimmerman could’ve been convicted of something, but that wasn’t possible because of overzealous prosecution. The jury decided exactly as it was charged to do.

But that won’t be good enough with the current White House crowd. You can bet the president’s guy running the Justice Department will do what he can to feed Obama’s support base. Eric Holder is nothing but a political hack, but that’s what he was appointed to be.

The events since the verdict were clearly predictable. It isn’t as if we haven’t been here before. T-shirts are everywhere.

A couple of bright spots emerge from the media fog and clamor surrounding the verdict’s aftermath. The first good thing is purely personal. Anytime liberals have hissy-fits, it’s a good day for me, and they’re vibrating like tuning-forks.

Secondly, NBC screwed up when it edited Zimmerman’s 911 conversation recording to manufacture the appearance of racial bias and then re-broadcast it as news. Zimmerman will sue, and by all accounts NBC will end up writing some very large checks.

I’m generally not a big fan of attorneys, but in this case, I hope they strip the NBC peacock feather-naked. That "news" organization has become nothing more than a surrogate for the Democratic Party, and I won’t mind one little bit if their political spittle disguised as news gets them royally plucked.

After Al and Jesse squeeze all the dissent they can out of this tragedy, they might turn their attention skyward. Astronomy is grossly insensitive, peppered with color-specific terms like black holes, red planets, yellow giants and white dwarfs.
