After the "not guilty" verdict for George Zimmerman was announced — a verdict predicted by most legal experts based on evidence, lack of evidence, weakness of burden of proof and testimony — the predictable politicization and preening for the cameras began.
The professional race-baiters did their usual thing, as did those who are so easily baited. The news outlets breathlessly reported on the reactions from the former and the latter, shamelessly playing the role of the former, all the while using the situation to fan the flames for ratings. But we expect that from them, sadly.
What is troubling on a very core level, however, is the choreography by the Obama administration and congressional Democrats in an ever more determined and sophisticated effort to exploit and politicize a tragic situation for partisan advantage.
