University of Alabama neurobiology professor Amy Bishop found out she had been denied tenure. So she opened fire on six colleagues at a faculty meeting Friday, killing three. Then she called her husband to come pick her up, as if nothing out of the ordinary had happened.
She was probably some knuckle-dragging right-wing gun nut, right? Probably a fan of Dick Cheney.
Actually, no. The Boston Herald reports in a story with the headline ‘Oddball’ portrait of Amy Bishop emerges:
A family source said Bishop, a mother of four children – the youngest a third-grade boy – was a far-left political extremist who was “obsessed” with President Obama to the point of being off-putting.
Well. I just don’t know what to say.
