« Laughner's YouTube Channel? | Main | More Pin The Tail On The Party: Catie Parker Seems Pretty Legit And Says Laughner Was a Leftie »

DailyKos' "Gabrielle Giffords is Dead to Me" Post Down the Memory Hole

Now you see it...

...and now you don't.

Via the Treach.

Over at Hot Air (and other sites), the game of pin-the-crime-on-the-party seems to indicate this guy was kinda left, as one of his favorite books was The Communist Manifesto (and another was Mein Kampf), and he favorited a video of the flag being burned.

As I've now said, I think the guy's primary ideology was teh crazy, and he seems to have plucked this or that idea from whatever source was at hand. And I'm not readjusting that guess now (having just adjusted it already). So I'm not going to say he's of the left, but the trail of all-over-the-map crazy is making it harder even for the MFM to claim with a straight face that he was a Tea Partier.

They will do that, still. They claimed Joseph Stack was a Tea Partier despite his concluding his suicide/terrorist manifesto with a quote from the Communist Manifesto. And the Discovery Channel shooter quickly morphed from radical environmental nut into "anti-immigration extremist" based on one bullet point out of 25.

The left-leaning stuff makes it a little harder for them to paint him as a Tea Partier, but they'll do it just the same. They like a good challenge.

Where's Ergie and Bill When I Need Them? Uh-oh. Who knows, I may have to do the full 180. I wonder if Ergie will join me in saying "I was wrong."

BTW, I don't know who Cathie Parker is so I don't have any reason to think she's credible on Laughner being a leftie. (I also have no reason to think she's not credible.)
