1.) My POV of the interaction with Angela Corey. She actually responded to my email with the subject “the guy who interrupted you at the presser” and she responded telling me that she forwarded my query to her communications director.
2.) Andrew Sullivan is being insufferable again:
I wish I could have some sharp response to the Martin verdict except profound sadness. I can see two things clearly: when there are no witnesses but the two individuals involved in a fight, and the victim is dead, and you live in a state that provides “stand your ground” immunity for self-defense, then proving a murder beyond a reasonable doubt is hard. I’m not going to second-guess the jurors, except to say the obvious: if that were a jury of Trayvon’s peers, then I’m a heterosexual.
Captain Obvious here – John Good witnessed a lot of the altercation and said that Martin was on top of Zimmerman who was on bottom screaming for help. He was a credible witnessZimmerman is the one who has the right to be tried by a jury of his peers, not Trayvon. These damn Brits (my dad’s a Brit so I can say that). Also, Stand Your Ground had nothing to do with this case. It was a self-defense case. As I’ve said, this case has pushed the Dunning-Kruger effect full bore. The people who most adamantly oppose Zimmerman are the ones who actually couldn’t tell you anything about the timeline of events as we know they occurred that night. Mark O’Mara’s four minutes of silence was masterful in getting this point across to the jury at least. Many paid journalists and other liberal simps didn’t understand what he was doing, and that’s because they have put on blinders to the facts. Sullivan admits as much when he writes “I didn’t follow the trial that closely…”
3.) I talked to Ike who was hanging around the protests in front of the courthouse on the day of the verdict.
4.) Jezebel actually criticizes Corey, though of course they put their own little spin on it.
