No Regrets, No Remorse and No Reason to Believe

“Hi, I’m George. I like shooting Black kids and saying I’m sorry, but not really. Send money.”

Previously, I have expressed my belief that George Zimmerman’s attorney, Mark O’Mara was a pretty smart guy.   That said, this week he made some curious calls and in the process may have handed the prosecution an unintended gift.

Zimmerman sat down for an interview with Fox News and noted booster, Sean Hannity.   Between swatting away the easy softballs Hannity pitched him, Zimmerman issued yet another insincere apology, but said he wouldn’t have done anything differently and that it was “God’s plan” that he gunned down Trayvon Martin.

With a straight face, Zimmerman told the sympathetic Hannity, “I’m not a racist or a murderer.”    Which makes him both a liar and a sociopath.

George tried to play “let’s make a deal” with Barbara Walters in exchange for an interview. She turned his sorry ass down.

Barbara Walters walked away from an interview with Trayvon Martin shooter George Zimmerman after the former neighborhood watchman demanded at the last minute that, in return for the chat, ABC put him and his wife up in a hotel for a month, a source told Page Six.

Walters flew down to Florida early yesterday and met with Zimmerman and his lawyer to discuss the possibility of a lengthy TV sitdown. Her interview would have taken place after he was done talking with Fox News’ Sean Hannity, a situation that already made the newswoman leery, we’re told, as she prefers to land exclusives. But we’re told that Walters was “appalled” by Zimmerman’s hotel demand, and told him the deal was off.

Even the ladies of “The View” didn’t want any part of Zimmerman’s image rehabilitation.

An ABC News spokesman confirmed that Walters met with Zimmerman, but refused to confirm what he asked for.

“She went down there with every intention of doing an interview, but Mr. Zimmerman made a demand at the last minute that we could not and would never agree to,” the rep said.

But that wasn’t the end of it. Zimmerman and his attorney called into The View to ask Walters to reconsider doing the interview.

That went over like a big, smelly fart.

“Mr. Zimmerman, if you could not do the interview yesterday, I don’t think we should do a quick one today. In the future if you feel differently, we will consider it.” Walters sniffed.

Sybrina Fulton, the mother of Trayvon Martin (remember him?) responded to Zimmerman saying it was “God’s will” that he kill her son.

“I really think that’s ridiculous,’’ Martin’s mother, told TODAY’s Matt Lauer. “I wish Trayvon was here to tell his side of the story. I don’t believe that it’s God’s plan for him to kill an innocent teenager.’’

If Zimmerman’s attorneys claim he can’t receive a fair trial in Sanford, Florida it will be in part because they did their best to create an atmosphere of bias.

Fox News legal analyst Andrew Napolitano doesn’t think Zimmerman did himself any favors by consenting to the television interview.

While Napolitano found Hannity’s questions to be “superb,” he ultimately thought it was a bad idea on the part of Zimmerman’s lawyer to allow his client to do an interview regarding the case.

The Judge specifically pointed to a portion of the interview when Zimmerman and Hannity discussed whether Martin had been “running,” as Zimmerman had originally stated, or whether he was “skipping” or simply walking quickly. The speculation over whether the young man was “running or walking or skipping provides a field day for the prosecutors to explore,” said Napolitano. What essentially happened, he said, is that Zimmerman took the witness stand with Hannity acting as cross-examiner.

Host Gretchen Carlson asked whether comments from the interview — specifically Zimmerman telling Hannity that the events of that night were “God’s plan” and that he has “no regrets” — will factor into the case. Napolitano thought they could very well be used as statements in court.

The killer and his mouthpiece are ready for their close-up.

When exactly did it become a good idea for lawyers to allow their clients to go on national television and speak publicly about their cases and what their state of mind was and is?

I don’t want to read Word One from anybody wringing their hands over pre-trial publicity making it impossible for Zimmerman to receive a fair trial. Not a word. If this dickhead wants to go on Fox News to tell his bald-faced lies that’s his prerogative, but I hope the prosecution finds something in his carefully prepared statements that ends up hanging him by his balls.

Seems to me Jerry Sandusky‘s attorney made the decision to have his client talk to the press and we see how well that worked out. Dare I hope Zimmerman lives to regret his little sit down for the folks tuning in at home?

A truly innocent man doesn’t try to game the system and work the refs. A truly innocent man doesn’t tell the parents of a murdered child he’s “sorry”, but claim he has “no regrets.”

A truly innocent man doesn’t try to secure a hotel room from a television network. A truly innocent man doesn’t claim it is the will of God that he shot and killed an unarmed teenager who was trying to find his way home in the rain and the dark.

A truly innocent man has remorse. A truly innocent man has regrets.

Reports from the FBI’s investigation into the shooting were revealed last week.  People who know Zimmerman say he doesn’t have a racist bone in his body.   But it’s the thoughts in his head, not the bones in his body that lead him to kill an unarmed kid.  The same ones who say Zimmerman isn’t racist against Blacks probably never dreamed he’d kill one either.

George Zimmerman isn’t innocent. He never was. He can give all the interviews he wants to as many friendly non-journalists like Hannity. It won’t change the facts of the case that he killed Martin based upon racially profiling him.

Keep digging your own grave, George. Keep digging…

It’s all so vulgar.

When did Stupid become the New Smart?

The plastic perfection of a Kim K. made her famous for being famous.

This country is a place where supposedly education and intelligence is praised and held up as things to be emulated and admired, but that’s really just lip service.  America is a profoundly stupid country and stupidity is celebrated, rewarded and put on a pedestal where the rubes hope they can get a glimpse of some brain-dead “celebrity” who went outside forgetting to put any underwear on.

Case in point:  When Jon “Don Draper” Hamm, of Mad Men fame called out the utterly dismal black hole of SUCK that is self-made media whore,  Kim Kardashian,  he struck a blow for common sense  in a country kidding itself that a big butt must mean big talent.

“Whether it’s Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian or whoever, stupidity is certainly celebrated. Being a f***ing idiot is a valuable commodity in this culture because you’re rewarded significantly.”

I defy anyone to tell me Kim Kardashian has any discernible talent.  Can she sing?  No.  As this video amply proves.  Can she dance? No  Prince kicked her dead ass off the stage during a concert because she moved like her feet were nailed to the floor.  Can she act?   No.  Even a notorious suck-up like Barbara Walters snarked, “You don’t have any talent.”

Which is undeniably not true.  The Kardashians are talented in whoring themselves out for entertainment of the easily amused  masses.  Set aside making sex tapes, banging Black jocks and generating an empire estimated to be worth $65 million, there isn’t a talented bone in the entire Kardashian Krew.

They’re stupid people and if not for Kimmy’s pillow biting playtime in front of the camera, all she would be known as if Paris Hilton’s equally plastic ex-gal pal.   However, the suckers who buy their books, clothing line and other crap are even stupider.

Which makes me wonder how many Karadashian fans live in Mississippi, a backward dead zone, where 52 percent of those polled believe President Obama is a Muslim.   Maybe Mississippians aren’t as hot and bothered over Kimmy K. as other outposts of imbecility since she does have a noted taste for the brothers and 29 percent of residents of the cradle of the Confederacy say interracial marriage should be illegal.

There are a handful of places in this country I have been where I would never return for neither love or money and Mississippi ranks in the top spot.  I hated everything about it when I was there.  It was unfriendly, depressing, creepy and most of all, dark.  Even in daylight, It seemed as if the sun was too embarrassed to shine there and I could not wait to leave .  The imbecility of the state is surpassed only by its rancid racism.  Mississippi is The State Time Forgot and the doltish beliefs of its right-wing residents is an embarrassment to the nation .

Appeals to stupidity might account for Rick “Obama is a snob for wanting everyone to go to college” Santorum winning the majority of support from his fellow Troglodytes of the Magnolia State.  Or it just proves stupid is as stupid does.  Santorum is just as aghast at an uppity Black Muslim in the White House as the good citizens of America’s poorest state are.

It’s a race to the bottom where the dumbest views must be equally weighed and considered as though they were coming from M.I.T. scholars instead of dopes too dumb to come out of the rain and accept the President of the United States is every bit as much as citizen and a Christian as they are even if he does have more melanin in his skin.  These people look at Barack Obama and see their worst nightmare come true:  the unholy spawn of an African and a White woman who is smarter than they are, more accomplished than they are, and has the audacity to look them in the eye as someone just as good as they are.

It used to be the news was a safe harbor from the yammering of the ignorant.  No longer.  Now the news isn’t about interviewing experts for their informed opinions.  It’s about “newsmakers” who haven’t succeeded, but failed miserably, holding forth as if they were wise men and women.   Nowhere are miserable failures celebrated and revered than Fox News where a loser and quitter like Sarah Palin can have her narrow ass kissed by a professional ass kisser like Sean Hannity to babble nonsense about subjects she knows nothing about.

The picture that launched a million boners for conservative men.

Sarah Palin: “Our President is one who is trying to divide our country,  He is not in this to unify America and to solidify our place as the exceptional nation in the world. He is trying to divide us based along lines of gender, of religion, of income, even of race. Look at his embracing of Derrick Bell, the radical college racist professor who he, you showed in a video last night, embraced literally and figuratively, asking others to open their hearts and minds to the radical agenda of a racist like Derrick Bell who believed that white men oppress blacks and minorities. And Barack Obama, evidently at least at the time, believed what Derrick Bell believed.”

You’d have to be stupid to believe Palin ever knew a thing about Derrick Bell before one dead man,  Andrew Breitbart, tried to futility slime another one from the grave.   Palin has no clue who Bell was, what he believed or what he stood for.  Stupidity is a no impediment for Palin.    Conservative White men think she’s hot even if she’s one point above being brain-dead..

I refuse to play along with the idiot game of entertaining the asinine assertions of know-nothings reveling in their appalling ignorance.   “What if” questions are boring and arguing hypothetical scenarios is a waste of time.    Kim Kardashian isn’t worth expending one more moment of thinking about her utter uselessness and neither is acknowledging unhinged and racist lunatics who buy into the Birther bull crap because they are intellectually incapable of imagining any scenario where they would have to regard a Black man as a figure of authority and respect.

Obama Derangement Syndrome is a sickness and Birthers are among the most terminally ill infected.  The entire belief the president is an alien subversive is no different from any other apocalyptic cult and those that believe are imperious to evidence or reason.  So why entertain their fantasies and feed their sickness?  The best way to handle these zombies is by starving them of the attention they feed off.

It's like coming home. If home is racist, fat and stupid.
