Another Tui Ad
"Two white supremacist skinheads were arrested in Tennessee last week over plans to go on a killing spree and eventually shoot Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama..."
Here is a classic media beat-up.
They were as likely to knock off the Sock Puppet as they were to successfully hold up a gun shop. All piss and wind.
It's the sort of thing you hear in a pub most Friday knight, where someone get as skinful and is going to shoot (insert politician of choice] in the guts.
Like Joe the farm hand who is going to drop the governor-general for what the bastard said in 1954- any planning came out of a bottle.
They probably wouldn't be capable of picking up a few tips from a Tom Clancy novel (no pictures).
But of course the police have to work on possibilities, not probabilities.
The cynical might say that the timing was impeccable for a few sympathy votes. The evil right tries to knock off the new prophet.
However, I, like God, do not play with dice and do not believe in coincidence...
