Lest We Forget

We should remember, too, that there are places where mainstream political movements really are responsible for violence against their rivals. (Last week’s assassination of a Pakistani politician who dared to defend a Christian is a stark reminder of what that sort of world can look like.) Not so in America: From the Republican leadership to the Tea Party grass roots, all of Gabrielle Giffords’s political opponents were united in horror at the weekend’s events. There is no faction in American politics that actually wants its opponents dead. -- ROSS DOUTHAT United in Horror - NYTimes.com

Your Say

The events of the past weekend may be changing that.

Unfortunate, but there you are.

"There is no faction in American politics that actually wants its opponents dead."

I would call that demonstrably inaccurate, given the unhinged rants of "liberal" commentators - and politicians - for the last 10 years.

The arrogance and stupidity of the left pundits is mind boggling that they think no one noticed or remembers the various calls for death to Bush and Palin, cheering for Rush to die and a fantasy movie of assassinating Bush while falsely accusing the right for creating a climate of inciting political violence...amazing. Well people did notice and did not forget. These idiots of the left continue to dig their hole ever deeper with shovels left over from the dearth of 'shovel ready' projects.
