Victory Tour 2013!
This guy. Thoughtful Second Amendment proponent. An example of prudent race relations. Stellar husband. A Great American.

Epic a-hole.

After calling it splitsville with her husband, Shellie Zimmerman probably deserves to milk her 15 minutes for all it's got. She was, in the end, the only Zimmerman to face legal punishment due to the events stemming from the death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

This morning, she did the sit-down thing with Matt Lauer on the Today Show. She opened up about not only her marriage but the September 9 domestic incident that almost put American's least favorite son back in cuffs.

In a now-infamous decision, Shellie decided to not press charges after her husband punched her father in a violent family altercation. In her interview, Shellie described how Zimmerman made repeated gestures toward his hip holster as they were fighting. "In hindsight, I should have pressed charges," she said.

Shellie also told Lauer she felt ditched after her husband was acquitted in July. "He just kind of treated me like I was disposable," she said, according to the Orlando Sentinel's account. "He went on a victory tour without me."

That tour, if you sports fans back home remember, included buzzing around the country at law-breaking speeds and touring the factory responsible for the handgun used in the Martin slaying, besides throwing domestic haymakers. He's basically just been giving America the one-finger salute. At least Casey Anthony had the good sense to hide out.

Now, that tour reportedly also includes avoiding process servers. According to TMZ, Zim is underground, trying to duck Shellie's lawyers in order to stall the couple's divorce proceedings. This is pretty surprising for a guy who seems to have no issues owning up to his mistakes, right?

In her interview, Shellie also said that she didn't believe her husband racially profiled Martin on the night of the shooting. Big pile of worthlessness, sure, but no racist. She also said she struggled personally about whether her husband truly felt his life was in danger on the fateful night. In the end, she said she respects the jury's verdict.
