It is lamentable, at least to me that anyone could print garbage such as the following from the leftist blog The Daily KOS. It is becoming increasingly clear the lunatic that was responsible for Saturday's horrific events was possessed of an incoherent and irrational hodgepodge of political fantasies. Yet the left continues its attacks on anyone it perceived to be on the "right" using selective quotes and incoherent logic to attack them.
by Jed LewisonThe obvious attempt by The Daily KOS to further politicize this past weekend's tragic event and place blame by inference on those who dare to have differing political beliefs than their own is in the very least, disgusting.

Now that Sarah Palin has decided to communicate through Glenn Beck's radio show, we get to hear pearls of wisdom like this:
"But please look into protection for your family. An attempt on you could bring the republic down."
-- Glenn Beck, giving advice to Sarah Palin in the aftermath of the Arizona shootings.
If Palin needs security, she should get it, but it's pretty remarkable that Glenn Beck believes the fate of the Republic hangs in the balance. We do not presently face an existential crisis nor will we anytime soon, and the fact that Glenn Beck says that we are on the cusp of such a crisis is emblematic of his strange combination of cynicism and delusion. That Fox and Clear Channel give him a platform from which to spew his paranoid nonsense on a daily basis is wildly irresponsible.

I hate violence. I hate war. Our children will not have peace if politicos just capitalize on this to succeed in portraying anyone as inciting terror and violence. Thanks for all you do to send the message of truth and love and God as the answer. -Sarah
Indeed, those who use the tragic events of this past Saturday as a means to further their political ideology by blaming those who have no responsibility for the event I say this.... Your lack of logic, reason, and rationality is both saddening and repugnant.
Further you pose a great threat to the vary concept embodied within the First Amendment to our Constitution. Those who espouse leftist ideology, as the lunatic who was responsible for this past weekend occasionally did, often pose the greatest threat to the ideals of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
While I recognize the need and the reason for toning down the political vitriol I cannot keep my views silent when it is increasingly obvious there are those who will use any crisis to attempt to gain political capital and advantage.
