SURPRISE! Obama Campaign Politicizes Trayvon

12 04 2012

I just received this email from, Obama’s petition organization for social justice. Using the death of a teenager to further his agenda, Obama’s team sent out this missive “from” Trayvon Martin’s parents:

We are still devastated by the loss of our son Trayvon Martin, and nothing can bring him back. But today, we are heartened to tell you that justice may finally be served for Trayvon.

This evening, Florida State Attorney Angela Corey announced that she will charge George Zimmerman with 2nd degree murder, weeks after he confessed to killing Trayvon — and now he’s in custody.

For weeks after Trayvon was killed, authorities refused to arrest Zimmerman. We couldn’t believe that in 2012, public officials would turn a blind eye to our son’s killing. We couldn’t let that happen.

More than 2 million people joined our call for Zimmerman’s arrest. We are so much closer to justice with the decision to bring charges against our son’s killer. We feel less alone knowing that so many people stood with our family during this impossible time.

When Trayvon was just nine, he ran into a burning house to save his father’s life. He may be gone, but he is still our hero. We are so thankful to all of you who fought to honor his memory.

Thank you for standing with us, and with Trayvon.

– Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton

The man will stop at nothing.


Sacred Twitter Cow Made into (Tasteless) Hamburger

11 04 2012

So, @Dmataconis, who threw this blog under the bus when I compared Andrew Breitbart to John Galt, has found out that sacred cows…especially the sacred cows of Twitter…do make the best hamburger.

Doug’s malformed, sarcastic “wit” has finally been given the attention it is due. Now if he’d just stop calling himself a Libertarian and a follower of Ayn Rand, he might grow up, too.

Tasteless abortion jokes about Santorum campaign fizzle on Twitter.
