While various leftist columnist/jackasses and Democratic backbenchers have been accusing the right of responsibility for the Tuscon massacre, the White House and other high-level Democrats have been more careful.
Until now. Now Hillary Clinton apparently is embracing the calumny, saying the rampage was perpetrated by “extremists”. An “extreme” what, she didn’t specify, but no matter; the connection to some kind political ideology (gee, I wonder which one she had in mind!) was made.
Any notion that the Democrats want to heal partisan divisions in this country is officially dead. (Oops, a martial metaphor.) These are vicious partisans with no understanding of decency except as a rhetorical weapon to use against their adversaries. (Oops, another martial metaphor.)
