“I’m just worried he’s going to win this argument for months before he gets executed.”
This is Chris Matthews from a few moments ago on Hardball, worrying
about the propaganda victories he fears KSM will win spouting jihadist
propaganda while on trial in New York City.
As I’ve said in earlier posts, I simply do not get this.
HE’S A COMPLETE AND TOTAL MORON. Oh, my God, he’s just such a kitchen appliance. He’s a blender. Maybe a whisk. He has the wide world experience of your average two-year-old. He’s just a fucking idiot. If you make it any more complicated than that you will once and forever lose the fucking thread.
Everything these people know about life outside their bubble, they have learned from TV and the movies. EVERYTHING. Tweety is picturing something he saw in a movie once, maybe, where a defendant gets up and makes an impassioned speech and the judge starts crying and everyone agrees that this man should go free to murder and terrorize no more.
He saw Inherit the Wind, maybe, and he thinks it’s like that. All the time. For everything. From traffic tickets on up. He thinks this is an episode of Law and Order. He quite possibly thinks of this as equivalent, both in national import and in general characteristic, to the OJ trial. Certainly it’s going to get covered like that.
He’s just a ginormous dumbass.
