6. I really don't think
This can be called a "RW terrorist attack/political assassination. We don't even know what the link was between the killer and the victim. Nuts are nuts, not matter what party they belong to, and I still have not heard anywhere what political party this guy belong to, have you?

Sure there are nuts out there that do listen to the crap on TV and the radio, and I do think that there comes a time when a line must be drawn as to the content of "free speech" when they promote violence in any form, but I still think we should not go as far as to say it's a "war" against the RW, and that we all must arm ourselves to protect our life. Bush has divided this country like no other president in my life time, and it is going to take a hell of a lot to get things back to normal, but dividing it even further by claiming this was a "terrorist attack" or a "political assassination" is going to far in my view.
