I haven't written a post on the attack on Rep. Giffords in Arizona yesterday, primarily because I have been writing about it on other sites. But for the record:
1) All evidence points to a deranged gunman, one who had exhibited criminal and mentally unstable behavior for years, with no one getting him into treatment.
2) This attack had nothing to do with politics, and everything to do with insanity.
3) Those on the Left who immediately seized on this to attack Sarah Palin, the Tea Parties and the Right in general are contemptible cads. The gunman's fixtation with Rep. Giffords began at least as early as 2007, long before anyone had heard of Palin or the Tea Parties anyway.
