John Wilkes Booth, This Guy Ain't

Surely I'm not the only one who thinks this was all an act?

Am I to believe that the 25 year old would-be assassin makes it this far -- past the guards, up onto the platform, within inches of his target's head -- only to be overcome by the Kung Fu of a 58 year old politician?  Or that while getting the gun and working his way through security, he never really thought ahead to what he would do if he got a clear shot?  Assassination ain't brain surgery, folks -- at least, not very tidy brain surgery.

Add to this the fact that the gun he used, though dangerous at very short range, is designed to be non-lethal, and this begins to look as phony as Te'o's girlfriend.

  1. It is sort of funny in a very odd, disturbing way. I agree it is a fake.
