Sen. John "F--- You McCain And The Politics Of Wilful Ignorance

It seems like EVERYONE has an opinion on the George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin case these days. I mean, I do but my liberal friends will not like it. But the point of this post is not about what I think.
It is once again our friend, Sen. John "F--- You" McCain and his take on the Zimmerman/Martin case.
Once again the denizen of the Sunday morning talk shows appeared on State of the Union with Candy Crowley on CNN.
When hasn't Sen. "F--- You" McCain been on a Sunday show in the last three months?
Anyhow, Miss Crowley asked the MENSA senator about his thoughts on the Zimmerman/Martin case and the outcome.
Well, in some defense of the senator, he is not a lawyer so I do not expect a lawyerly answer. But I do expect Sen. "F--- You" McCain to have some knowledge of the case.
Courtesy of Ed Morrissey over at, Sen. "F--- You" McCain suggested that the jury was not corrupt.
WTF?! Really?! The best that Sen. "F--- You" McCain could come up with is that the jury was not corrupt? Who even suggested that one? NO ONE, Sen. "F--- You" McCain. NO ONE!
But of course, Sen "F--- You" McCain did not fumble on rambling on about the so-called "Stand your Ground" laws and, surprise! Why the senior Solon agrees with the Dear Leader, President Obama and thinks that these laws enacted by states should be "reviewed",  whatever that means. Regrettably, you must watch this pile of incoherence to realize that, as Mr. Morrissey notes in the link, it does not sound like he knows what he is talking about.
I'm sorry but you have to watch both to get the full flavor, a bitter one, of what Sen. "F--- You" McCain is saying here.

It's incoherent really because you know that Sen. "F--- You" McCain has no clue about the case because the simple, correct answer is that the prosecution filed charges. A trial was presented. The prosecution presented in evidence and case. The defense put holes in it. Thus, when the jury was given the case to deliberate and they did and came back with their verdict, the system did work. A much better thing to say than well, there is no evidence that the jury was somehow corrupted.
See, Sen. "F--- You" McCain may not realize that the jury was sequestered and thus had no outside influences. There is no way that they could have been corrupted to use his line unless every single one came to the case ready to pronounce a not guilty verdict. And from a couple of the jurors, the deliberation was very careful and going over all evidence as presented by the prosecution. And remember, the state, the prosecutor must, must prove the guilt. The defense is under no obligation like that.
But it is the douchebrainery of somehow mixing up the SYG law with this case. In fact, it was a consideration of the Zimmerman defense team to use that. But they realized that they did not need to. Thus it was NEVER part of the trial.
So why does Sen. "F--- You" McCain even bring that up?
Because it is an easy way out for a politician with no clue what the hell he is talking about to sound like he knows what he is talking about.
It is also buying the left-wing meme that if it were not for the SYG laws, this might not have happened. And another, back door attempt to resurrect the gun control debate.
Again, SYG had nothing to do with what happened in the Zimmerman/Martin case.
In fact, while the left is railing against the SYG law making Marissa Alexander their reason d'etre why the law is bad, very bad, they leave out a very important detail on that case.
While Miss Alexander tried to use the SYG defense, the problem is that she had time to go and get the gun in question and then proceed to fire a shot in the wall. No doubt a warning shot. But read this from Media Trackers if you think that I am making it up:

After Alexander exited the bathroom and re-entered the master bedroom, Gray left the bedroom and headed to the living room where his sons were located. At that point, Alexander left the master bedroom, passing Gray, his two children, and the unobstructed front and back doors of the house on her way to the garage. Once in the garage, she retrieved a handgun from her vehicle’s glove box and then went back into the kitchen, where she “pointed it in the direction of all three [v]ictims.” Although Gray put his hands in the air, Alexander fired the gun, “nearly missing [Gray's] head” and sending a bullet “through the kitchen wall and into the ceiling in the living room.”

That is very important. Miss Alexander had time and opportunity to simply leave the home and call 911, neither of she did and proceeded to do the deed that has landed her in prison. And she could have taken a deal in which she would be out of prison by now.
So, Sen. "F--- You" McCain, do you know anything about this case? Huh? I mean, you think that states that have this law should somehow "review" them for no reason other than, to remind you as you did Sen. John Cornyn in 2007 in reference to the then so-called "comprehensive immigration reform", f--- you! You don't know what you are talking about! I know more about this than you do!
Had Sen. "F--- You" McCain done a minimal amount of reading in a newspaper or on the internets, he could have and should have answered Miss Crowley's questions in a better manner. But this is why Sen. "F--- You" McCain is not president today. Because he does not do the homework to even discuss domestic policy and events. That is why he sounds like the doddering old fool he is fast becoming.
Some advice for Sen. John "F--- You" McCain.
Please senator, take next Sunday off the talk-show circuit and maybe spend it with your family. Go to the real church, not the Church of Meet the Press. The Temple of This Week. None of those. Can you do that Sen. McCain?
