Sorta unfair to blame a guy because his son beat his ex-wife comatose with a baseball bat* and he apparently didn;t see that as a serious matter. That's about as all American as you can get- coulda been soccer cleats.
I'm not real inclined to pile on a guy even for pretty sensational stuff like that- people have issues- and out and around Hooterville there are plenty of folks who have issues and have been forgiven, being that they're good folks.
But seriously, why would a guy who's pulling down a multiple seven figure salary and looks to be pretty safe as long as the numbers keep racking up want to be in public service?
*do appear to be a lot of gender based anger issues associated with this crowd.
