Joe Horn was no billed today and the Houston Chronicle and local radio is all about good guys and bad guys. The majority of the shouters of course think it was A-ok for poor old Joe (61 yo) to kill two people. He’s a hero and everyone wants to be his neighbor.
I for one don’t wish any such thing. I think Mr. Horn will regret the day he killed two people. The justice system in Harris County has been broken for some time — ruling based on other than fair means. It’s well documented. The only reason to link to the Chronicle’s article (which will de-link in time) is to show what their commenters have to say.
One commenter in particular says that I should ‘eat crow’. I don’t have to. I never took the positions he claims I did. I am disappointed. I think there’s is a likelihood that vigilantes will take things in their own hands and no one will be safe.
I watch the Sunday morning political shows ontape because I can’t be bothered with the apologetic oil company commercials. All day today, form network news types to the lowliest blogger on the right has been taking Clark’s comments out of context — even the News Hour tonight. It’s depressing.
When asked today if Obama was patriotic, McCain couldn’t just say yes.
Lastly, McCain and Cornyn decide to take credit for the bill Bush signed today, even though they both opposed it. Someone explain to me in non-spin terms how that works. McCain gets “credit” when he didn’t even vote?
