This little article sums it all up pretty well IMO.
"It would be merciful if, when tragedies such as Tucson's occur, there were a moratorium on sociology. But respites from half-baked explanations, often serving political opportunism, are impossible because of a timeless human craving and a characteristic of many modern minds.
The craving is for banishing randomness and the inexplicable from human experience....."

Ok Hypocrites, time to step up.
You had a field day pretending Conservatives were calling for violence. All I'm hearing NOW, in the face of REAL calls for violence from liberal protesters and Democratic political leaders is CRICKETS>

Where's the part where Walker said he was sending plants into the protest? I didn't see it.
Like I said in the other thread -he didn't say anything during the prank phone call that he hasn't said publically a dozen times.

Dem tells union members: 'Get a little bloody when necessary'
By Michael O'Brien
Sometimes it's necessary to get out on the streets and "get a little bloody," a Massachusetts Democrat said Tuesday in reference to labor battles in Wisconsin.
Rep. Michael Capuano (D-Mass.) fired up a group of union members in Boston with a speech urging them to work down in the trenches to fend off limits to workers' rights like those proposed in Wisconsin.
"I’m proud to be here with people who understand that it’s more than just sending an email to get you going," Capuano said, according to the Dorchester Reporter. "Every once and awhile you need to get out on the streets and get a little bloody when necessary."
Political observers have been the lookout for potentially incendiary rhetoric in the wake of January's shooting in Tucson, Ariz., where Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D) survived an assassination attempt, six were killed, and 13 others were injured.
Political rhetoric has become especially heated in Madison, Wis., where Republican Gov. Scott Walker has proposed major labor reforms that sparked more than a week's worth of rowdy protests at the state capitol.
"We take security seriously, whether it's for me, the lieutenant governor and all 132 members of the state legislature, Democrats or Republicans alike, because there's a lot of passion down here," Walker said Tuesday on MSNBC about his safety in Wisconsin. "And particularly when we see people coming in being bussed in from other states, that's what worries us."
Capuano made his remarks before a crowd of union members in Boston, along with other members of the state's congressional delegation. Massachusetts has an influential union population that could loom large over the 2012 Senate race. Capuano is considering getting in that race to challenge Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.) next fall.
“This is going to be a struggle at least for the next two years. Let’s be serious about this. They’re not going to back down and we’re not going to back down. This is a struggle for the hearts and minds of America,” Capuano told union members.

Twit - try to keep it OT here. This thread is about DasCunt using a senseless mass murder to spew his poltical vitriol and completely pwning himself when it turns out he was completely wrong/a stupid waste of flesh. I know you can't help yourself, but try to focus.

Colson did the same comparison back in '72 BTW, with the janitor that shot Gov. Wallace
harles W. Colson, who served as a political saboteur for President Richard M. Nixon, masterminded some of the dirty tricks that led to the president's downfall, then emerged from prison to become an important evangelical leader, saying he had been born again, died Saturday. He was 80.
The cause was complications resulting from a brain hemorrhage, according to a statement from Prison Fellowship Ministries, which Mr. Colson founded in Lansdowne, Va.
Mr. Colson had brain surgery to remove a clot after becoming ill March 30 while speaking at a conference, according to Jim Liske, the group's chief executive.
Mr. Colson was sent to prison after pleading guilty to obstructing justice in the Watergate affair. After having what he called his religious awakening behind bars, he spent much of the rest of his life ministering to prisoners, preaching the Gospels and helping to forge a coalition among Republican politicians, evangelical church leaders and Roman Catholic conservatives, helping to change the dynamics of U.S. politics.
It was a remarkable reversal.
Mr. Colson was a 38-year-old Washington lawyer when he joined the Nixon White House as a special counsel in November 1969. He quickly caught the president's eye. His "instinct for the political jugular and his ability to get things done made him a lightning rod for my own frustrations," Nixon wrote in his memoirs. In 1970, the president made him his "political point man" for "imaginative dirty tricks."
"When I complained to Colson, I felt confident that something would be done," Nixon wrote. "I was rarely disappointed."
Few played political hardball more fiercely than Mr. Colson. When a deluded janitor from Milwaukee shot Gov. George Wallace of Alabama on the presidential campaign trial in Maryland in May 1972, Nixon asked about the suspect's politics. Colson replied, "Well, he's going to be a left-winger by the time we get through." He proposed a political frame-up: planting leftist pamphlets in the would-be killer's apartment.
"Good," the president said, as recorded on a White House tape. "Keep at that."
Mr. Colson hired E. Howard Hunt, a veteran covert operator for the Central Intelligence Agency, to spy on the president's opponents. Their plots became part of the cascade of high crimes and misdemeanors known as Watergate.
The scandal began to unravel after Hunt and five other CIA and FBI veterans were arrested in June 1972 after a botched burglary and wiretapping operation at Democratic National Committee headquarters at the Watergate office complex in Washington. To this day, no one knows whether Nixon authorized the break-in or precisely what the burglars wanted.
The Watergate operation and the dirty tricks campaign surrounding it led to the criminal indictments and convictions of most of Nixon's closest aides. On June 21, 1974, Mr. Colson was sentenced to prison and fined $5,000. Nixon resigned seven weeks later after one of his secretly recorded White House tapes made clear that he had tried to use the CIA to obstruct the federal investigation of the Watergate break-in.
Mr. Colson served seven months after pleading guilty to obstructing justice in the case of Daniel Ellsberg, a former National Security Council consultant who had leaked the Pentagon Papers, a secret history of the Vietnam War, to the New York Times. In July 1971, a few weeks after the papers were published, Mr. Colson had approved Hunt's proposal to steal files from the office of Ellsberg's psychiatrist. The aim was "to destroy his public image and credibility," Hunt wrote.
"I went to prison, voluntarily," Mr. Colson said in 2005. "I deserved it."
