As the bizarre picture of Amy Bishop, the nutjob who (allegedly) shot up the University of Alabama last week, becomes more clear, we get this interesting tid-bit from her old home-town (she’s originally from Braintree) newspaper, The Boston Herald:
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.
The first, and most obvious question is, sound like anybody you know?
And naturally, the second question is, given that DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano wants us to be afraid of any conservative militia member returning from deployment as a national security threat (how many, by the way, have shot up places since she issued that warning?), I wonder if she’s interested in re-evaluating her criteria now. I’m not holding my breath.

UPDATE from Bruce (GayPatriot): Nick beat me too it. So my only addition to his post is to officially declare Professor Bishop as an “UNHINGED LIBERAL“. There are far too many these days….
UPDATE (from Dan): This from an Instapundit reader: if Bishop “had been a conservative it’d lead every evening news cast for two months.” Althouse elaborates: “If Amy Bishop had turned out to be right wing, the MSM would have made a big deal out of it.”
