Oh yeah, the Giffords shooting.

The shooter is a mentally ill person who fixated on Tea Party-esque rhetoric. If that hadn't existed, he would have attacked because of the Bible or the White Album.

Five people are dead, nonetheless.

I don't really see the connection between him and the Tea Party. He seemed like your run-of-the-mill lunatic conspiracy theorist. If I had to link him to any one political "movement" or whatever I would lump him in with those Infowars people who believe that world governments are conspiring to kill off 80% of the population through vaccines

I don't really see it as a right or left thing but of course both political parties are trying to spin it in such a way as to make their opponents look bad

The really sad thing is that these conspiracy people are really dangerous but nobody ever pays any attention to them one way or the other because they tend to fly under the radar. But they scare the shit out of me, and the fact that there's a radio station in Austin completely devoted to this shit unsettles me.

Also, most of these people tend to consider themselves Libertarian or at least use "Libertarian" as a label for themselves, which should anger the real Libertarians out there, instead politicians welcome their vote because I guess nutjobs are easily exploitable

You heard of the "Darwin Awards?" (The winners are those dumb enough to kill themselves.)

The "Hitler Awards" should be introduced as well.

Hey... If a whole country of people can be taken advantage of and turned into haters...

and if he grew up in another time or environment he could have been an ultra conservative or ultra liberal, problem is he had a handgun and he used it not only on the congresswoman, but on many more people and he had no reason for those, they were just in the wrong place at the wrong time - it's sad but I don't want him (or Charlie Manson) running around with the general public anymore
