You ned only scan some of our critics’ commentary or Glenn Reynolds’s links to various left-wingers (or commentary thereon) to know that many (but fortunately not all) on the left are holding former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin responsible for the shooting this weekend in Arizona.
Okay, if Mrs. Palin is responsible, then, show me the evidence. Provide information showing that the shooter was familiar with her map targeting vulnerable Democrats including Congresswoman Giffords. Show us just how he looked up to the charismatic conservative and/or her followers on the right. And also show us where she urged her supporters to use violence against political opponents.
And please let us know how he participated in Tea Party protests or otherwise expressed sympathy for the movement.
FROM THE COMMENTS: In learning of Sarah Palin’s responsibility for the actions of an unbalanced man in Arizona, Bill589 has determined that some musicians are responsible for other murderous rampages:
I read somewhere that if Palin is responsible for this murderer, then the Beatles are responsible for Charles Manson.
And to think, I thought they were just good musicians.
