News flash: Texas district attorneys NOT murdered by Aryan Brotherhood.

Looks like it was your standard grudge-holding erratic individual:

Authorities on Saturday searched Seagoville storage unit as they focused their investigation into the slayings of the Kaufman County district attorney, his wife and a top prosecutor on a former justice of the peace.

Eric Lyle Williams is now the prime suspect in the murder of District Attorney Mike McLelland, his wife, Cynthia, and Assistant District Attorney Mark Hasse, law enforcement authorities say.


Williams was convicted of stealing county equipment last year and sentenced to probation in a case prosecuted by McLelland and Hasse. That case is on appeal. Williams faces another theft charge in a case related to money allegedly misused from a law library fund.

What I’m about to say is not really directed towards Glenn Reynolds, Matt Welch, and/or Stacy McCain, as I’m guessing that they already know this. But for anybody who’s missed this particular memo: what the SPLC produces is not political science, or policy positions. It’s pornography.

Robert Gibbs: Umm, actually there hasn’t been an increase in death threats.

(Via Instapundit) A surprisingly clear statement, given the source. Perhaps he’s been yelled at?

There has been no increase in the number of security threats to President Barack Obama despite the contentious town hall meetings taking place around the country, according to the White House.

White House press secretary Robert Gibbs also said Friday there has been no change in the security precautions.

“We haven’t viewed any increase in threats, and there’s been no change in any of that,” Gibbs said.

Or perhaps it’s just that the administration just realizes that while it may be in the best interests of Mark Potok and the SPLC to push their political fetish porn about how there’s a scary right-wing mob out there THAT COULD SNAP AT ANY MINUTE! – it’s not really in the best interests of the administration itself, to say nothing of the country. Particularly with the administration’s popularity currently hovering around 47%.  Turns out calling people names makes them less likely to love you.

Who knew?
