The absolutely horrible part of this quote (via @amandacarpenter)?
“They need to deftly pin this on the tea partiers,” said the Democrat. “Just like the Clinton White House deftly pinned the Oklahoma City bombing on the militia and anti-government people.”
It’s that Jonathan Martin, Ben Smith, and/or Alexander Smith got this quote… and did not immediately tell this anonymous hero off. I understand the concepts of ‘off the record’ and ‘protecting sources:’ would that our reporting class understood the concept of ‘refusing to associate with lying scumbags.’
…when people like Pejman Yousefzadeh and I can no longer feel outrage and anger at the contemptible and despicable rhetoric of the Online Left in response to outrages. A day where the rampant hypocrisy that their pet bloggers and pundits routinely show stops surprising us with its power to offend. A day where we throw up our hands in despair and allow their (and their allies’) appalling willingness to use dead children to claim a nonexistent manhood to occur without comment. A day where we are just too weary of the sickness festering in the heads of the Netroots to care about their latest successful effort to reach a lower ground.
But it is not this day.

Arizona, in fact, has a gas chamber.
I’ve been away from the keyboard for a few hours, so I haven’t been updating this post (my continued prayers for Congresswoman Giffords and the other victims). I see that one of the dead is a nine year old girl… and I am perfectly fine with executing people who murder nine year old girls.
And I do not care if you are not.
Because William Jacobson successfully predicted Media Matters’ hypocrisy on the Tuscon attack months before it actually occurred. I doubt that George Soros reads me, but if he does: George, you’re wasting your money on those guys. They’re as predictable as the sunrise and a whole lot less aesthetically pleasing.
