Some people are idiots

So it's been a day chock full of Duke Lacrosse case. I waited with anticipation for the AG's press conference, watched it with rapt attention and then the players' afterwards. Interspersed between those events and afterwards, I've been reading and posting on various blogs and combing through news stories looking for different reactions to the outcome. While most news outlets stuck to simply reporting the results, the reaction on blogs were obviously a bit more colored. There was a lot of celebration on various sites where people had poked holes in this travesty over the long months and even sites that had previously supported the lying whore seemed to have either muted their response or ignored the outcome altogether. After all, what is there left to say? It's unprecedented for a prosecuter reviewing a case to come out and declare that a group of defendents were not only not guilty, but actually innocent. He could have used one of any number of dodges, including simply stating that not only was there not enough evidence to continue with the case but that there was no evidence at all. Amazing.

Still, even among all the good cheer and sanity there have to be some basketcases. Some of you might recall a blogger I ran into in the early days of the hoax who was fanatically crazed in her belief in the accuser. Even the presentation of indisputable facts were verbotten if they at all hinted that the accuser was a lying basketcase. I popped back to her blog at Abyss2Hope to see how she was taking the news and to no surprise the answer is batshit insane. It makes me wonder if she and the two nutjobs who commented on the entry are learning disabled or might have simply suffered brain damage. Certainly their ability to comprehend the english language must be flawed in some serious manner. Repeatedly they try to claim the AG dropped the case due to insufficient evidence when when his statement went far beyond that. There was no credible evidence that a crime had occurred and he himself claimed the players were innocent.

in this case, the inconsistencies were so significant and so contrary to the evidence that we have no credible evidence that an attack occurred in that house that night.

Based on the significant inconsistencies between the evidence and the various accounts given by the accusing witness, we believe these three individuals are innocent of these charges.


Of course, this in no way pierces the fantasy realm that these crazy wenches are living in.
