Zimmerman Interviews with Sean Hannity

On Wednesday, douchebag hack newsman Sean Hannity scored the first interview with George Zimmerman. During the interview, Zimmerman, in a moment that exposed himself as either a total nutball or someone who takes his lawyer’s advice a bit too literally, said this:

HANNITY: Is there anything you regret? Do you regret getting out of the car to follow Trayvon that night?

ZIMMERMAN: No, sir.

HANNITY: Do you regret that you had a gun that night?

ZIMMERMAN: No, sir.

HANNITY: Do you feel you wouldn’t be here for this interview if you didn’t have that gun?

ZIMMERMAN: No, sir.

HANNITY: You feel you would not be here?

ZIMMERMAN: I feel it was all God’s plan and for me to second guess it or judge it—

HANNITY: Is there anything you might do differently in retrospect now that the time has passed a little bit?

ZIMMERMAN: No, sir.

About three minutes later—presumably after his lawyer totally freaked out—Zimmerman revised his comments.

ZIMMERMAN: First, I would like to readdress your question when you asked if I would have done anything differently. When you asked that I thought you were referring to if I would not have talked to the police, if I would have maybe have gotten an attorney, if I wouldn’t have taken the CVSA (Computer Voice Stress Analysis) and that I stand by, I would not have done anything differently.

But I do wish that there was something, anything I could have done that wouldn’t have put me in the position where I had to take his life. And I do want to tell everyone, my wife, my family, my parents, my grandmother, the Martins, the city of Stanford, and America that I am sorry that this happened.

I hate to think that because of this incident, because of my actions it’s polarized and divided America and I’m truly sorry.

I’ll have a double soy Frappuccino and a Grande Budweiser.

Atlanta’s License Review Board granted approval for two Starbucks locations to begin selling beer and wine. Starbucks already sells alcohol in a few Pacific Northwest locations and couple outside Chicago, but Atlanta will be among the first cities to start the beer and wine program outside the company’s home turf.

As our customers transition from work to home, many are looking for a warm and inviting place to unwind and connect with the people they care about. At select stores where it is relevant for the neighborhood, we are focused on creating an atmosphere where our customers can relax with a friend, a small bite to eat and a cup of coffee or glass of wine.

Syrian Rebels kill 4 in Assad’s Cabinet

Analysts say a suicide bombing that killed four members of Syrian President Assad’s inner circle will expedite the current conflict.

Among those killed by the blast were Assad’s brother-in-law and Deputy Head of Defense Assef Shwkat, Defense Minister Dawoud Rajha, and Crisis Management Chief Hassan Turkmani.

“The regime is very weak at the moment. They are confused. This is the final phase. They will fall very soon. If you look at the economic situation, it is a matter of months until they will not be able to pay salaries,” said rebel leader Abdelbasset Seida in an interview with Reuters.

The bombing marked the expansion of the conflict into Syria’s capitol city of Damascus and has subsequently encouraged Rebel forces to attack Syria’s second largest city, Aleppo.

The uprising in Syria began in March of 2011 and has reached an estimated death toll of 19000.

Military Marches in Uniform at Gay Pride Parade

Dozens of men and women in military uniforms marched in San Diego’s Gay Pride Parade this weekend, marking the first time American servicemen were allowed to wear their uniforms at such an event.

Typically, the Department of Defense bars troops from marching in uniform at parades, but made an exception for the San Diego Gay Pride Parade. The DoD said the exception was made because parade organizers were encouraging military personnel to march in uniform and because the parade was garnering national attention.

Cmdr. Kent Blade, in an interview with the The Huffington Post, said last year’s repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell has substantially improved troop morale.

“We’ve all been able to talk more freely about our lives. Nobody’s leading a second life,” he said. “And now that I can march freely in uniform, I think it’s a great display for the Navy.”

Olympic Flame Arrives in London

Just a week before the games are set to begin, Royal Marine Martyn Williams rappelled from a Navy Sea King helicopter as he carried the Olympic Torch into the Tower of London.

Although many Londoners are excited about the prospect of increased business brought by the games, many are lamenting the boost in traffic. London is already home to lengthy gridlock and many locals are concerned that getting to work might become next to impossible.

London Mayor Boris Johnson, however, advised naysayers to “put a sock in it.”

“We’ve got an advanced case of Olympo-funk. We agonize about the traffic, when our transport systems are performing well and the world’s athletes are arriving on time. … We gnaw our fingernails about the blinking weather, when it seems to be brightening up a bit – and anyway, it’s England in July for goodness sake and a spot of rain never hurt anyone.”
