The Tucson shootings, then…
Right: Oh God, that’s horrible! Those poor people! Who did it? What happened?
Left: Damn right it was horrible, and it’s all you murdering racist tebaggers who are at fault! And who’s the worst of them? Sarah Palin! She’s incited this violence! She’s like Hitler! She should be killed! Sarah Palin has blood on her hands! Sarah Palin should be arrested and tried! Murderers! Racists!
Right: But wait … the guy who did it wasn’t a Tea Party member, wasn’t very political, he was a schizophrenic who had been thrown out of college because he scared his teachers and the other students.
Left: How dare you be so uncivil!
Left (sotto voce): Murderers!
