The sneering contempt for the petit bourgeoisie is nothing new.

Having just read this steaming little pile of a hit piece, I felt it important to warn my Twitter followers...

Typische. Snide and uninformed.

Yeah, B37 sounds like some other people I know.

drjim said...

A LOT of people don't "pay attention" to the world around them.

I think they're called "Obama Voters".

It ain't an honor to be on TV
and it ain't a duty either.
The only good thing about TV
is shows like 'Leave it to Beaver'

Shows with love and affection,
Like Mama used to say.

goes a long way." - Grandpa Green

Only people who have no knowledge or interest in the outside world are ever selected for juries. Read a paper, go home.

TBeck said...

I bet she doesn't know a single person in Manhattan or L.A.!

NotClauswitz said...

I think the salient point in all salientosity and pertinentious ramificationses is that, "she doesn't trust the media" - besides, "devotion to animals" is a red-flag dog-whistle.

That was weird.

I wouldn't want B37 voting in an election for President or for dog catcher, but as long as her ability to look at the law as worded and apply it to the evidence presented is sound, I wouldn't care if she believes that Elvis is alive and cats are superior beings with regard to her ability to be a juror. Conversely, I wouldn't want a professor who is concerned with women's studies, global warming, and social justice on any jury, even for small claims.

Old NFO said...

I don't think this will be the last one either, and I'm betting they will be more vicious!

staghounds said...

I laugh and laugh at the reaction to this case, because the people who are always ranting about "unjust" convictions WANT one this time.

"Son of Sam" Adams said...

With a case like this, ANY reasonably intelligent and curious potential juror will have been contaminated. I don't see any way that you'll avoid B-list jurors. But B-;ist is adequate for the job.

Ooh, Tam, you have inspired me. Next time I want to really piss off a progressive I'mma call'em a cisgendered Kyriarchal hegemon. Should be fun.

JustSomeGuy said...

I scrolled down through the comments, many of them blasting Tomasky, but the fun ones are those sharing Tomasky's contempt.

I always get a kick out of the random internet commenter's assumption that of course they would perform so much better on TV (and voir dire, if they were ignorant enough to get caught by jury duty, obviously) than these poor, stupid examples of the tail end of the bell curve! I'm all educated and shit!

Interviews (and voir dire) are an interactive performance and if you're not the host, you're not leading. Without some experience and preparation we can all be made to sound like rambling idiots.


Thanks, from this rambling idiot,

Jag don't forget selective editing. I wouldn't put it past them. If they will edit the 911 call to forward their narrative...

Don't you just love it when the Liberal Elite find out that instead of having Brie, Caviar and a Robust Burgundy, they have to eat Pizza and Beer along with the rest of us?

Some people have a "Word Of The Day" calendar.
I just read Tam.

Professor James Moriarty said...

Holy Cow.

Some of the comments at Tomasky's piece are...precious.

Observe:

"@raeRuserious He shouldn't have been following any minor. I think he wanted to rape the kid and when Trayvon resisted Zimmerman shot him. Florida Republicans have legalized forcible rape and incest, giving the molester the right to kill their victim if they fight back.

It was murder, probably by an angry sexually-repressed stalker."


There are no words.

Well, I say that now but Tam could find some. She always does.

Erin Palette said...

@Moriarty: according to Jeantel, Trayvon thought that Zimmerman was a gay rapist -- which means that it logically follows that he attacked Z. out of "gay panic."

I dearly hope this is true just so I can see the social justice warriors on Tumblr eat each other.

Professor James Moriarty said...

@Erin Pallette-

You and me both. Why, I believe it would warm the cockles of my little, shriveled heart.

Kristophr said...

A lot of butthurt racebaiters in the comments there.

All blaming Zimmerman for getting attacked and not being Bruce Lee or Commander Spock, or just lying there and taking it.

Joseph said...

If we're not supposed to look down on our intellectual inferiors ... then it will be a lot harder to make fun of reporters.

fast richard said...

I had to Google "Kyriarchy". At least now I'll know what it means if I hear the word from some lefty. I don't think it's a common word among most people I hang out with, but you never know.

Anonymous said...

A Kyriarchy is the state government of Kentucky.

Professor James Moriarty said...

Its denial of service time folks:

Stedman has set up a tip line for Mr. Zimmerman.

Send in as many wacky,tips as you can. Best example I've read so far:

I found mattress tags in George Zimmerman's trash.

Send to: Sanford.florida@usdoj.gov.

Windy Wilson said...

So we can be assured that
"@raeRuserious and Trayvon Martin were evidencing homophobia.

W-w-why a homophobe deserved what he got!

At least that's how it's pitched elsewhere in the blogosphere. Why should this case be any different? (he asks all innocently)

Anonymous said...

the writers description reminds me of a star witness for the prosecution...............

JD(not the one with the picture) said...

In case I get TJIC-ed, here is the text of the email I sent to Sanford.florida@usdoj.gov :
I heard some guy say, "I saw Zimmerman drinking a pina colada at Trader Vic's, his hair was perfect" ... or maybe he said werewolf... or something, my hearing is not that good, I'm old school. Oh yeah, the guys name was Warren Z... uh, Zimmer, or something, I'm not sure... Zenon maybe. Anyway, have a great race baiting, demagoging, lynch mob inciting day. Nutin' but love, pace, out.
