Quick Hit

The Piers Morgan/Alex Jones "interview" was a classic moment of "Proceed, Mr. Jones."
Jones is clearly passionate about his petition and his concern, misguided tho it is, about gun control being the ultimate "turn in your guns to the sheriff" moment that the NRA and Gun Owners of America have so terrorized their members into believing.
Jones has long been a crackpot and regularly appears alongside ubercrackpot Jesse Ventura on various conspiracy shows.
But Jones loses it, and loses it big time, in this piece. I'm sort of surprised he doesn't collapse into a mewling, blubbering heap, screaming, "I WANT MY MOMMY!"
Morgan, to his credit, rarely interrupts the autoligature. He sits, silently, zen-like, while Jones carefully measures the noose he places about his own neck and then kicks the chair out from under himself.
