A Cheap Shot
The attempts to blame the Arizona tragedy on the TEA Party are hideous. Representative Gabrielle Giffords' father can be forgiven besmirching so many good people due to the extreme stress he is obviously under, but the same can not be said of the partisan vultures in the dinosaur media. ABC was particularly offensive at the end of their Saturday evening news in a program devoted entirely to the attack when they sent out specific best wishes only to the families of the US Representative and the Federal judge who was killed without any similar language about any of the other victims whose lives are equally valuable to their families. This assassination was the work of a paranoid suffering grievous delusions, not by a politically motivated actor. The shooter is no rightest- he has a You Tube video out burning an American flag, an act no TEA party members who tend to be super-patriotic would ever countenance any more than they would ever condone such a senseless mass murder.
