I am retired from government, law enforcement, politics and all other pointless endeavors. I eat when I am hungry and sleep when I am tired.

So William F. Buckley's inheritors at National Review have taken the machiavellian route and are throwing George Zimmerman under the proverbial bus while trying to save the Florida Castle Doctrine law.  On a cold blooded pragmatic level this may be understandable  individuals who may suffer the delusion that the "Conservative" establishment will take their part when found harming the black endangered species.  As John Derbyshire pointed out, establishment conservatives may feign solidarity with normal Americans but at heart they are effete New Yorkers with all the social prejudices and postures that entails.  Behold the National Review's stance towards Zimmerman and despair that they would ever stand up to a left/minority lynch mob.  

Rich Lowry "Al Sharpton is right......Zimmer should be charged.

NRO"s Robert Ver Bruggen, writes, "It is still not clear whether Florida “neighborhood watch” vigilante George Zimmerman broke the law when he chased down and killed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. And that’s a problem, because Zimmerman acted inappropriately in the moments leading up to the shooting, and Martin would still be alive if Zimmerman had behaved as he should have. Supporters of pro-self-defense policies should roundly condemn Zimmerman’s actions, and Florida should change its laws to prevent this incident from repeating itself."

and Rihan Salam writes "I get the tentative sense that this conversation hasn't gotten crazily polarized."
