The New York Slimes wastes no time in finding the Palin angle to the attempted assassination of Democrat Representative Gabrielle Giffords, shot through the head by a lone (?) gunman:
During the fall campaign, Sarah Palin, the former Republican vice-presidential candidate, posted a controversial map on her Facebook page depicting spots where Democrats were running for re-election; those Democrats were noted by crosshairs symbols like those seen through the scope of a gun. Ms. Giffords was among those on Ms. Palin’s map.
They’re mad. Now Paul Krugman smears the Tea Party movement – a grass-roots protest against big-spending government that’s not mentioned once in the alleged shooter’s ramblings (Andrew Bolt)

Pathetic Sheriff exploiting today’s tragedy to slander the right. Scumbag.
Far left dipshit Sheriff Dupnik’s holding a press conference (that’s the guy who refused to enforce Arizona’s immigration law). Blames shooting on “vitriol coming out of certain people.” We all know who he’s talking about. More to follow.
FOXÂ News reportsÂ the shooter’s favorite books: Communist Manifesto and Mein Kampf
UPDATE: Democratic Underground removes the thread onÂ Loughner here. Hmmmm, wonder why.
UPDATE: Shame on those like Arizona State Senator Linda Lopez, who blamed the tea party on FOX news without any basis in concretes or any knowledge of the identity of the gunman. They would never make such a public presumption about jihad or the leftists. Outrageous.
