His attorneys called him out after the fact, after it was leaked. His attorneys are pretty much doing damage control for him, I don't even see it as calling him out necessarily as much as they're stating the obvious. They're saying what Zimmerman's PR people would likely say ("we don't agree with it, it's not what we planned, we're going to try and change it blah blah blah")
you’re still just picking and choosing which angles to analyse it from.
if you can’t actually see the foolishness in this on the part of zimmerman, then... well, okay.
but for some, events like this are kind of interesting. is the obliviousness on display here an aberration? or does it fit a pattern? it’s just interesting for some.
