Must-Read: A Tale of Two Terrorists | Main | On The Second Amendment and Presidential Anger

After Four Days of Speculatively Blaming the Right and Anticipating What Poltical Solutions We Might Need To Address Their Growing Menace, Left Declares That the Time for Speculation and Political Wargaming Has Passed


You should be ashamed.

Well, that's terribly convenient.

Let me note the pattern here, because we've seen it now seven times straight. In the aftermath of a tragedy, the media freely speculates that the perpetrator was most likely someone on the rightwing-- usually a Tea Partier, always a rightwing extremist of some kind.

When the culprit turns out to be a member of the Coalition of the Left -- for example, as in the case of the Discovery Channel shooting/attempted bombing -- we're informed that political motivations and implication don't matter.

But until that point, accuse the Tea Party and Tax Protesters and Xtremist Xtians of every sort. Have fun with it. Explore the studio space. Just wishcast and dreamjournal away.

Like NPR, the "news" channel you pay for so that wealthy white people don't have to spring $60 a year for digital radio.
