Gabrielle Giffords Shooting: Don't Blame Sarah Palin - The Daily Beast

The rush for political cover:
This isn't about a nearly year-old Sarah Palin map; it's about a lone nutjob who doesn't value human life. It would be nice if we briefly put aside partisan differences and came together with sympathy and support for Gabby Giffords and the other victims, rather than opening rhetorical fire ourselves.
Rising above unseemly politics and asserting that the gunman acted alone does nothing but cynically ignore the undeclared civil war that the right has been waging for the last two years.
