Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

I'm no attorney, but disagree w/attorney Lisa Bloom (MSNBC) who wasn't nuts about

Bernie's closing because he asked questions.

Bernie impeached Z's testimony by using Z's own words and was able to demonstrate Z had prior intent.

1. i find women tend to really dislike Zimmerman, i hope this means something concerning

the jury. of course if they got lucky with a racist on there it wouldn't matter.

but i don't know if anyone else has noticed this. but it seems it's mostly men who sympathize with zimmerman. i'm not saying all men do but those who do are mostly men.

and those who are most passionate and angry at zimmerman are women.

4. My racist immigrant TeaBagging mother LOVES him...

She called me up early in the trail mocking that poor girl. She thinks he's a martyr. I said "good, as long as he gets hanged".

3. I thought his using the FOX NEWS model (You Decide) was bold & brilliant.

State probably investigated jurors (as both sides do, so don't even start with me, GZ defenders) and found some or all of them are registered Republicans who probably voted for both Bushes every time and watch FOX News to learn what they're supposed to think.

I'm just yanking chains with the Bush voter stuff, but it's easy to find out the demographic makeup of that part of Florida.

5. I had to turned off the closing argument.

I thought it was awful so I guess I would agree with Lisa.

6. I thought that it was pretty good.

He played a lot of snippets from Zimmerman's various interviews and then tore them apart.

7. I actually switched over to CNN

Because she was so annoying and negative. To my uneducated mind, the prosecution comments showed beyond doubt that GZ has lied throughout this whole thing. She kept calling them common discrepancies in a stressful situation. Don't think so.

8. Until he turned it into a PowerPoint presentation ...

up till that part I thought he was good. Then he blew the whole thing by showing slide after slide of text. WTF?
And why did breeze right over the "screaming ended with the gunshot"? He should have played the tape. Replayed GZ's testimony about having the hand on his mouth and then shooting him. Then replayed the tape of the screaming ending with the gunshot. Then the last words should have been "Trayvon Martin is dead".
