Ah, Zimmerman appears to be channeling his ideological cousins Rush Limbaugh and Sarah Palin by so nakedly exploiting the Troll/Liberal Outrage industrial complex.
He engages in stunts that are needlessly provocative and hurtful to the left, gins up outrage, then plays literal-minded victim ("I was found not guilty, and yet the liberal media tells me I can't take a Sunday to visit a local gun manufacture? When will the abuse end?").
Cue Fox News. Cue MSNBC. Cue HuffPo and Drudge. Cue everyone and their goddamn opinion. Zimmerman stays relevant, parlays it into a $40K a pop speaking gig or guest column on RedState.com and so it goes. Successful troll is successful.
I see what you're gettin' at... but I still can't quite convince myself he's smart enough for that. C'mon George, prove it! Wink at the camera!
Smart enough? It's an infant's game. Flail around, pout, and provoke until you get a reaction.
Also, as a rule, if Sarah Palin is smart enough to build a multimillion dollar empire off a tactic, it means a properly trained rodent could pull it off.
Of course you're right. I mean, the other main headline up there is about a Kardashian.
He must have called Saul.
George Zimmerman, VIP.
Trayvon Martin, RIP.
Give it a little time, maybe more, maybe less. He'll be RIP soon enough. You can quote me on that.
Death and taxes, amirite?
Fine line between casually musing about the possibility of and openly advocating for the killing of other people, isn't it?
ExG ~ I was thinking something a little more well, in-yo'-face. Ya' know blood spatter techs working the scene. That sorta thing. In any event I feel pretty confident he isn't gonna see too many more birthdays.
"the gun that he used to shoot Trayvon Martin through the heart"
This doesn't really seem like the phrasing someone on your own team would be using. It would have been sufficient to just leave that last clause off. This is a professional spokesperson making a point.
I'm actually wondering if these people still represent Zimmermann, or let him go and are now gently letting us all know how glad they are to be rid of the guy.
He's just pointing out what an excellent marksman his client is.
What does spokesman mean in this context? Is it someone in the firm or someone who is a PR person? I mean this guy could be fairly removed from the actual practice of defending Zimmerman and his lawyer probably very very much wants to distance himself from him at this point.
Can you imagine being stuck around Zimmy for a year because you work for the firm that he hired? I would let loose, too.
He shoulda ended the comment w/ "We suggest you go back in to hiding, bro."
Have any gun companies hired him as a spokesman yet?
My actual reaction to your comment.
No but Wayne is considering taking him on as a paid consultant to lowest IQ base.
Not yet, but I wouldn't be surprised to see it happen. Or won't be surprised when it happens, rather.
