The silence is deafening

Right up until the last minute, Tookie Williams's partisans were acting as if this were civilization's last ditch, and they had to defend it or else. But after his execution, he immediately became old news. Neither the MSM nor the anti-death-penalty folks could work up enough outrage to say much about the event. Ho-hum, what's the cause du jour?

Don't you think that if they'd really believed all that hokum about his "innocence," they'd have been all over it with the press conferences and street theater on the day following his death? Naah: Tookie was just another horse to ride in their perpetual promotion of grievance. Once he was dead, even they didn't mourn him.
