Photos That Make the Rude Pundit Want to Spike the Cranberry Sauce with Vodka and Roofies:
That's just part of the arsenal that Sandy Hook Elementary shooter Adam Lanza had on him. It doesn't include the Bushmaster. It doesn't include the shotgun he had in the trunk of his car.
While hindsight is perfect and all that nonsense, if you want to rattle yourself to the bones on this rainy, awful day here in the Northeast, check out the report on Lanza's fifth-grade work, "The Big Book of Granny," featuring a homicidal Granny and her sadistic grandson. Oh, it's also got a character called Dora the Berserker who says, "I like hurting people...especially children." And then Granny shoots and kills an entire troop of Marines.
The Rude Pundit will be driving past Newtown today on his way to a Thanksgiving feast. Chances are that he won't slow down. It'll be night. It might still be raining. As we do with every massacre, we will all eventually do the same. We will push Sandy Hook into the white noise of violence past, our national state of denial that wears us down and wears us down.
