  1. Thank you very much for writing this. I am tired of the Republicans and Tea Partiers in Congress calling actions like these ‘isolated incidents’. It might have been isolated early on, but we can now clearly see the trend. Conservative hate rhetoric is ruining political discourse in our country, and those politicians need to be held responsible. I am ashamed at Sarah Palin and her cronies, and I would hope for an apology soon. There are no words to describe how angry I am right now.
    Thank you.

  2. So unsettling, when it first came out I was worried it might be a wide plot and that we would begin hearing of more congressman shootings. Very brave of the people that tackled him as he tried to flee. Hopefully Gifford will pull through.

    “…The Tea Party has often been called radical for their loud demonstrations, and holding their elected politicians feet to the fire. But are they anything like Jared Loughner, a liberal, who shot his own Congresswoman in the head for voting against Nancy Pelosi?…”
