Family: Bishop Obsessed with Obama

Yes we cantankerous:

A family source said Bishop, a mother of four children - the youngest a third-grade boy - was a far-left political extremist who was "obsessed" with President Obama to the point of being off-putting.

This familial admission of her politics buttresses claims made by students, one of which claimed "she is a socalist but she only talks about it after class." Another student wrote that Bishop, "She's a liberal from 'Hahvahd' and let's you know exactly how she feels about particular subjects."

A liberal college professor who wore her politics on her sleeve and who was unable to deal with reality? Surely, you can't be serious.

At the moment, there are just too many unanswered questions. Answers that I expect will turn this case into one of the most talked about in recent criminal history.

The husband's flipping and flopping on key points, the "borrowed gun", which the husband claimed to know little or nothing about, but wanted it out of the house "because of the children". The woman's visit to the firing range to "practice" mere hours before she put that practice to good use. The relationship, if any, between this woman's Mother - who was said to be a member of the "personnel board" for the city - and the prosecutor during the brother's shooting death. The missing case file, which is a red flag if there ever was one as to a possible cover-up of a crime. Many questions as to why no criminal charges were ever filed. Etc., Etc.

At the moment, Mr. Delahunt is the man in the spotlight. I doubt we'll get too many cohesive answers from the shooter. In fact, an Insanity Defense for her is a distinct possibility. The husband doesn't seem to be wrapped all that tight, either.

So that leaves Mr. Delahunt directly on the spot. His political career - in fact the rest of his public and private life - will depend greatly on what he has to say and just how honest he is in saying it.

From an academician: You were expecting something different?

I read that she was also obsessed with booster chairs.

Too bad we retired Old Sparky a few years ago.
