QOTD: "Even before the dead were buried, the left was attempting to use this tragedy for political purposes, even while the high-minded leftist punditry called for a discussion of the state of our "political discourse" (thinking that conservatives would be hurt by that discussion).

Turns out that the left and the punditry were far, far off-base factually in trying to blame Palin, Beck, Limbaugh, Fox News, George Bush, etc. for the shooting. We now learn that this guy is a nutcase who is, if anything, a lefty. (Professes admiration for the Communist Manifesto and disdains the U.S. Constitution, plus he has been obsessed with Rep. Giffords since 2007, well before Palin even arrive on the national scene.)

The left made a gamble here -- that the facts that would come out would support their anti-conservative speculation. That gamble failed . . . badly.

Soon, folks, after we've paid our proper respects to the dead and considered the facts that have emerged, let's consider what the shameless and distracting conduct of the left indicates about who is to be entrusted with the levers of power in this country, going forward." -- Commenter on E.J. Dionne's disgusting column
