Amy Bishop’s Politics
Glenn Reynolds, Stacy McCain, Jim Hoft, Lonely Conservative and others continue to point to rather thin evidence that UAH mass murderer Amy Bishop was a “socialist.” She went to Harvard after all. And one kid on a prof rating website called her one. QED!
As I’ve previously noted, her politics seem rather irrelevant. Certainly, there are lots of socialists on college faculties across the land. Happily, they almost never engage in killing sprees.
But William Jacobson, an Associate Clinical Professor of Law at Cornell, has a point here:
Her politics, whatever they may have been, are irrelevant. She did the crime, and now she needs to do the time (or face the needle).
One thing about Bishop’s politics seems likely, however. And that is that she must never have attended a Tea Party or said something nice about Sarah Palin, or we would have heard about it by now.
