Today's "Yahoo Trends" list had Zimmerman in an early lead but Trayvon, proving that you're never really dead in Internet land, has moved ahead at mid-day.
Earlier, Spike Lee had to apologize for Tweeting the wrong address when he tweeted the Zimmerman's home address. Quite amusing. Hopefully Spike will shut up & stick to looking simple at basketball games but I doubt it. Nothing shocking there, eh? (Actually, the only thing I found shocking about the Spike Lee article was the statement that Spike has 240,000 Borg-like followers for his every mental burp.)
Then we have Zimmerman's dad Robert, who goes public in defense of his kid, but he does it behind an identity obscuring screen so mobs of outraged idiots don't take their outrage out on him.
It makes one wonder how those recent workplace conversations have gone for the elder Zimmerman.
"Say Bob, isn't that your kid George?
"Ummmm...nope...nope...don't have any kids. I...ah...had a vasectomy a long fucking time ago...so nope...no kids named George or Grace or Elijah...nope...no kids for me."
"But George, you introduced me to him at the Christmas party."
"Ummmm...did you say my name was Bob? Nope, I'm Clyde. Used to be Cleo until I had that sex change back in the late 90s."
Almost as funny as Trayvon supporters continually trotting out pictures of little Trayvon when he was still in grade school. I suppose that photos of a 6'3" black teen in a hoodie would look too much like a thug for middle America to swallow.
The liberal crew over at RI, always in need of some violent act to occur so they can give their opinion about it, (they're outraged & saddened & weeping of course) while simultaneously Googling reams of material that only the unemployed could possibly find time to read, earlier posted a pithy tie-in with lynching.
I'm not exactly sure how that's relevant given the fact that Zimmerman is a Hispanic Jew.
Maybe the big brains at RI have finally realized that white people are irrelevant, while the true culture wars are occurring between minorities.
The only question I would like answered is why someone in Florida thought it would be a good idea to allow untrained neighborhood watch Yahoos to carry weapons.
Seriously, this is America, the de-evolution poster child. This is the place where humanity has regressed backwards to a state of slothful stupidity. The place where the average person's idea of a bad ass is Arnold Schwarzeneggar, whose model for physical conflict is an orgy he attended back in '79. We have taken a running leap away from anything anyone could call "reality" ages ago. We don't need to be carrying weapons. Really. If you doubt it, go to your average Wal-Mart & take a good look around. Do you seriously want these people to carry firearms in public?
