66. Damn good stuff Will. To those who say we're going to far in laying blame , I say this:
Sarah Palin set herself up for being the focal point of the outrage just the same as if she personally called Loughner on the phone and instruced him to do it. Her entire public persona has been crafted to promote violence towards Liberals, Progressives, Moderates , and "The Left". The problem with being a lightning rod is that at some point you're going to be struck. There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that if we didn't "jump the gun" in proclaiming the violence mongering members of the right responsible for this atrocity they would have been spinning this as our fault.

I doubt we'll ever get a "smoking gun" with Sarah Palin's, Rush Limbaugh's, Bill O'Reilly's, or Sean Hannity's fingerprints on it. What we do have however, are thousands of smoking words uttered by the hate mongers on the right and now those words are being held up to the scrutiny of a nation.

I say let the light shine on.
