3. And I Am Posting Assuming That Politics DID...

And I am posting assuming that politics DID have something to do with the shooter's motive.

Am I jumping the shark?

Maybe.

But I think the LONG list of political assassinations and attempted political assassinations perpetrated by conservatives against their liberal neighbors is justification enough to make the assumption that Holmes' motivation was, indeed, political.

A) Holmes was a gun nut.

B) Holmes came from a San Diego Congressional district that has NEVER voted democrat.

C) Rush Limbaugh condemned "The Dark Knight Rises" film as a liberal conspiracy vs. Romney days before the massacre.

D) Holmes had a four-year college degree but was working at McDonalds... which very well could make the man mad at the Preident's handling of the economy.

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion on whether they want, or should, chime in on the matter so soon after the event - and I have decided to go ahead and post.

If I'm wrong, I have egg on my face.

And I can live with egg on my face.
