Blaming Sarah Palin for the Giffords shooting

As I was following the horrendous events including the shooting of Congresswomen Giffords today, I was struck by the number of hateful bloggers who immediately blamed Sarah Palin and others on the Right.

Now it appears that the shooter may have been a Left-winger who apparently thought Ms. Giffords was too moderate for his tastes. Should we now blame all non-moderate liberals for Ms. Gifford's death?  That would be absurd, of course, but no more absurd than blaming Sarah Palin!

Almost 20 people were shot today including a U.S. Congresswoman, a federal judge and a small child--and the first thought on the minds of many Left wing bloggers was to find a way to score points against their political opponents. Truly pathetic.

Sooner or later, somebody who went to a TPM rally, or signed in to a pro-Palin site, will shoot someone. We’re still waiting. But when that day arrives, this decade or next, the left will have a parade and throw confetti. They’ll be so happy. They’ll still be wrong about blaming the TPM or Palin, but at least their argument will have a tiny grain of truth to it.
