In the movie King Kong, there was that famous line, "It was beauty killed the beast."
Well, it was Grover Norquist and his minions of Republican members of congress who signed his no taxes commitment who let Casey Anthony walk.
It's become very clear that the reason she was found not guilty was because of a bad call by the prosecution, asking for the death penalty when they couldn't even show cause of death. CNN reported on attorney Jeffrey Toobin's commentary,
"...the prosecution's decision to make this a death penalty case. "(This) always seemed like a wrong decision to me, given the ... absence of a cause of death (and) a time of death," Toobin said.
This was a case of bad judgment by the prosecutors.
How is that related to Grover Norquist and the republican anti-tax policy? Norquist has been quoted as saying that his goal is to, by cutting taxes, shrink the size of government so much that "it's small enough to drown in a bathtub."
Fact is, prosecutors are part of government. if the prosecutors made the wrong decision we have to consider whether the government in Florida had the best people on the job. Could the district attorney's office afford to pay to attract the best attorneys? Are the best employees no longer at all available to be hired by the government because Norquist and his enemies of government have already decimated funds so much that the drowning in the bathtub has already begun?
