Robin Williams was a very funny man. Talent is "funny" like that, it doesn't care who or what you are. It just falls out of the sky on to some people. Williams was standing in a different place altogether when the heavens opened up over him. His manic, incredibly quick wit was always something to behold.
Unlike many liberal comedians - Sara Silverman, Bill Maher, Jeanine Garofalo, Rosie O'Donnell, etc... who are not that funny - Williams was hilarious.
But Williams' personal life wasn't funny - or all that much fun apparently: affairs, drugs, herpes, lawsuits, divorces, depression.... Many comedians refused to perform if he was in the house because he stole their material.
Naturally, he was drawn to California liberalism. California liberalism is New York liberalism on LSD. Whereas New York liberals realize their delusions are best achieved by back room power plays, California liberals actually seem to believe that what they feel reflects reality.
The struggle to reconcile their inner delusions with the hard reality of life in front of their noses puts a strain on liberal minds. Many of them drift off into realms of drug abetted neuroses; and sometimes psychoses. Williams turned to chemical relief; and no doubt many women along the way helped to quiet his demons. There were consistent rumors of a severe bipolar disorder. In spite of this Williams' talent remained intact.
But sins cast long shadows. Williams had been walking in his for a long time when he finally decided to escape planet Earth. Like someone who scrambles into the wheel well of a commercial passenger plane he departed for lands unknown.
The emotional mess that suicides leave behind them is a lot worse than any physical mess. Williams hung himself. He hung himself at home knowing full well that someone very close to him would walk in and find him swinging. What an angry, self absorbed thing to do.
But this is fully in keeping with the liberal mind: move on and leave it for others to deal with the mess they left behind.
