This blog has mentioned in the past -- here and here, among other places -- that it's generally only sociopaths who go out of their way to tell you what wonderful, caring, ethically upright people they are.
This morning's Post had a great illustration of that in an article about Anna Benson, the soon-to-be-ex-wife of Mets pitcher Kris Benson:
Crazed “Baseball Wife’’ Anna Benson yesterday told The Post, “I’m all about good, I’m all about love’’ — but she sure has a strange way of showing it.
The 37-year-old mom of four and ex-Penthouse Pet was dressed like a ninja and armed with a revolver, ammo belt and bulletproof vest when she entered the Georgia home of estranged hubby and former Met Kris Benson demanding dough and calling him a “p---y,’’ police records allege.
“I’m not feeling very good, as you can imagine,’’ Anna admitted to a Post reporter from the Cobb County Jail in Marietta.
“None of it is true, but you’ll find that out.
“I’m a good girl, a nice girl,’’ insisted the buxom ex-stripper, who now says she wants to start a bulletproof-vest company. “I would never hurt [Kris]. I am still in love with him."
Good people simply don't go around making pronouncements like, "I'm all about good, I'm all about love."
Nor do nice girls say, "I'm a good girl, a nice girl." Truly nice girls tend to just act shy. If you actually ask them if they're nice, they'll say something like, "I don't know" or "I try to be." They certainly don't go around broadcasting it.
Nor do they call their husbands pussies.
Benson, by the way, not only had a revolver with extra ammunition, but also a folding knife, and an expandable baton. The police also found a hatchet, a Taser, a bag of syringes, and a box full of pills in her car.
All standard equipment for nice girls.
Here's a picture of the still-married couple:
Anna Benson actually does look as if she's all about love. Just maybe not the kind she was trying to imply.
