A bit of vicarious aggrandizing

Read all about it!

LeRoy Carhart said that he was misunderstood when he said that the shooting of his old boss was like the assassination of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. It wasn't that he was comparing a guy who made a living stabbing babies in the heart with huge syringes to a man devoted to a nonviolent civil rights struggle. No! He wasn't directly comparing Tiller to King.

He was comparing the significance of the events. And he went on to clarify. What he meant to say that Tiller's murder was as significant as the murder of Dr. King -- and as the bombing of Pearl Harbor!

So shooting a seedy quack abortionist is of massive historical significance!

Look, LeRoy, I know the guy was your friend, and he gave you a job when you couldn't keep your renovated muffler shop open. But that doesn't put his murder up there with the assassination of Lincoln or anything, okay?

Take your meds, LeRoy!

P.S. And isn't he flat out inviting every loser who wants to feel significant to just shoot an abortionist?
