During this morning’s coverage of the arraignment of Aurora, Colorado Batman shooter James Holmes, there was a lot of the usual idiocy by the national news anchors. George Stephanopoulos gave legal analysis because he has a law degree from the University of Cover Bill Clinton’s Bimbo-Chasing Ass. But Diane Sawyer, a big-time liberal who strongly supports gun control (and did an hour-long “news special,” lecturing us that if we had guns, we would not be able to defend ourselves from the likes of Holmes), really outdid herself. As you may know, Holmes seemed out of it and looked like he was about to fall asleep several times during the hearing. He also sported his bright orange/red hair, which he dyed to look like the joker. But Diane Sawyer thought that was strange. She said something like this:
Hmmm . . . he’s still sporting that red hair. I wonder why they let him come out still wearing that red hair. Why didn’t he change it back?
HUH????? Is there a beauty shop in the county lockup?
Do they allow suspects who dressed up as “The Joker” to dye their hair to look more presentable at trial? It’s conceivable–if Holmes already retained a private lawyer (and he did not, he merely has a public defender assigned to him)–that the lawyer would be allowed to give him a suit to wear. If he were out on bond–and he will never be–then, Holmes could go to the barber of his choosing. But this is a guy who just massacred 12 people and wounded 58 more. He was under lockdown. They aren’t gonna be letting him out to dye his hair or do much of anything else.
Leave it to this aging airhead and former beauty queen, Sawyer, to ask such a dumb question and linger on it. The guy just massacred people at a movie theater, and she’s asking why his hair wasn’t dyed back to a more palatable brown.
But the important questions–such as where did the unemployed Holmes get the money for $20,000 in weaponry–she didn’t utter. Out of her IQ-grade.
