Call Colin Powell the Toeless Wonder.  Powell keeps opening his mouth, without bothering to engage his brain, and in the process keeps shooting his toes off:

WASHINGTON (AP) — Former Secretary of State Colin Powell called the jury verdict that cleared the killer of Florida teenager Trayvon Martin “questionable” and urged President Barack Obama to speak more on issues of race during an interview that aired Sunday.


“I think that it will be seen as a questionable judgment on the part of the judicial system down there, but I don’t know if it will have staying power,” Powell said. “These cases come along and they blaze across the midnight sky and then after a period of time, they’re forgotten.”

Does Powell mean to suggest that his feeling that the result of Florida v. Zimmerman was a “questionable judgment” meant to preclude the existence of reasonable doubt in the case? Powell seems to trying to arguing at the same time that the outcome of the case was both right and wrong. Then, I used to think Powell was a republican.

Good news for Powell, we, the nation, survived the verdicts in California v. Simpson.
