Queen of Denial
Posted by thedarwinexception on December 12, 2008
Today I am pissed, angry and sad. Why? Because I’m betting my last spool of thread that the remains found in back of the Anthony home are those of Caylee. And that makes me sad. Not that I didn’t suspect that someday, somehow, somewhere she would be found, and it wouldn’t be “in the arms of some loving family” the way the Anthony’s said it would be on Larry King Live the night before they found the remains, no, I suspected that she would be found just the way she was – in a plastic bag with apparent duct tape on her mouth.
And although the finding of her body makes me sad, it’s that same Larry King Live Interview that makes me so pissed off and angry I could spit. If anyone is the Queen of Denial, it’s Cindy Anthony. I want to know *SO* badly what the fuck is up with this woman. I mean, I *REALLY* want to know. I mean, sure, her daughter is a psycho whacked out baby killer, and you know, I’d like to ask *her* a few questions, but really, the one character in all of this who I’m really intrigued with is Cindy.
So, here she is on Larry King Live, and no one, least of all Larry King, is asking her the things *I* want to know. Starting with her first call to the police – you know, the one where she told the dispatcher the car “smelled like death”. Now, some guy calls in and says “Cindy, what the hell were you talking about when you said the car smelled like death?” And she says “Oh, caller, you know, that was just an expression – you know, I open my fridge all the time and say “Gee, it smells like something died in here!””
Now, excuse me, but Larry King is one ridiculous interviewer, because instead of following up with Cindy and asking her something like “Um…pardon me, but in the context of calling, you know THE POLICE, to report that your GRANDDAUGHTER IS MISSING, why in the fuck would you bother to convey to them that the car SMELLED LIKE DEATH unless, you know, in YOUR mind, you thought that had something to like, actually DO with the granddaughter’s disappearance?” I mean, what OTHER reason could she have for even mentioning that fact at that time? Was she just like asking the police for tips on how to get bad smells out of car upholstery? She makes no fucking sense.
Her tireless defense of her daughter makes no sense to me, anyway. I mean, I can understand standing by your kid and supporting them, I really can understand that. And when it’s a close case, hey, go for it, support your kid. But there’s a fine line between “support” and “champion”. And there’s a fine line between support and denial. At some point, this woman is going to have to open her fucking eyes and see her daughter for exactly what she is – the person who killed her granddaughter. She is going to have to stop blaming the police for “railroading” her daughter, and blaming the police for “getting the wrong Zanny Nanny” and making outlandish and unbelievable excuses for her daughter. No one asked her on Larry King (of course) “So, Cindy, who exactly are these people who want to come after you and your family? You know, the ones that Casey had to hide from in every bar in Orlando when she was supposedly out investigating her daughter’s disappearance before you called the police?” And no one asked Cindy “So, Cindy, why would Casey take the police on a wild goose chase through Universal Studio offices looking for an office where she didn’t really work? Why would she divert police resources and manpower AWAY from actually searching for your granddaughter like that?”
But, the police reportedly “recovered” a lot more items at the Anthony home last night. Things that were “linked” to the contents of the bag. And you know what those things might be, right? The duct tape and the bag itself, I’m betting. Because they can do shit with those things, now. Remember Melanie McGuire? Yeah, they busted her ass with the duct tape. That shit is sticky – and it likes fingerprints. And hair, and fibers. All you need is some fibers to be on that duct tape, some hair, a couple of fingerprints, and the bitch is done. And it’s too bad it’s been six months, because police are actually able to ID plastic bags right down to “it was the fifth bag ripped off this roll”. But, since it’s been six months chances are slim that there are any of *those* bags left around anymore. I mean, a roll of plastic bags don’t last a week in my house. But, maybe the police will get lucky and one of the bags was used as storage for something in the house and they can trace the bag back to that house. But, you know, even if they do, Cindy will be on TV, crowing about how “Casey said she brought a bag of stuff from Zanny the Nanny’s house – that bag came from there!” Because that’s Cindy’s job at the moment, making up shit to defend her daughter.
I’d also LOVE to ask Cindy something that has been nagging at me. Remember a while back, when Padilla bonded Casey out of jail? Well, a bunch of stories were floating around at that time of what Casey had been chatting about with Padilla and his associate, Tracey McLaughlin. One of those statements that she made to McLaughlin was when she was rebutting everything the police were saying on TV. Casey told McLaughlin that the police didn’t have a clue – that “they haven’t even found the clothes Caylee was wearing.”
Now, this is a small thing, but it has been nagging at me. It seems to indicate that she knew that if they found the clothes, they wouldn’t be with the body. And since the remains were found, but no clothes were found with the remains, it seems like Casey had a little insight that no one else would have known, unless they knew the clothes weren’t with the body.
It’s just little crap like this, stuff that adds up, that I’d love to question Cindy about. Just to see what kind of stories she could make up and pull out of her ass to defend her daughter.
And I’m sorry, but I’d forgive my kids a lot of things, and stand by them during a lot of things, but murdering my grandchild? Yeah, probably not. I don’t care *who* People magazine or Barbara Walters has on their “Most Intriguing of 2008” list. Cindy Anthony should be at the top of the list, because really, who is more intriguing? Some stupid adulteress movie star who is so arrogant she can’t even give birth in the United States – her kids have to be “foreign” to be acceptable – or Cindy Anthony, who is so far into the pit of denial that she believes that her daughter dropped her granddaughter off at an apartment where no one lived, to be babysat by a nanny who no one has ever seen or knows, and that said nanny whisked the child off and threatened an entire family, and her daughter kept quiet about the whole thing for a month to “investigate” on her own? You know, James Patterson’s ghost writer couldn’t make shit up like this and have it seem believable.
But, damn, Cindy sure is intriguing. Stupid, but intriguing.
