Overall, how much do you blame each of the following for the shooting in Arizona -- a great deal, a moderate amount, not much, or not at all?Palin is one of the choices:
A map on Sarah Palin's website that marked 20 congressional districts, including the district represented by the congresswoman who was shot, with an image that looked like the crosshairs of a gunA total of 35% thought Palin had a great deal or moderate amount to do with it, while 59% said not much or none at all. Curiously enough, 35% of Democrats also think Bush knew about 9/11 in advance. Hmmm.
The media will continue to ignore that Jared Loughner and he alone is responsible.
Meanwhile, AP has a look at dangerous loners.
The gunman accused of trying to assassinate Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and killing six others, Jared Lee Loughner, was not on any government watch list that might have warned someone not to sell him a gun or caused police to investigate his unstable behavior.The implication, of course, is Stack was one of those loony anti-tax teabaggers. Of course they fail to mention Stack was quoting from the Communist Manifesto. Funny how when that happened the usual suspects at Daily Kos reacting with the headline Teabagger terrorist attack on IRS buildingbefore it quickly went down the memory hole.
It turns out there is not a list in the United States for people like Loughner.
The same goes for Joseph Stack, who flew his plane into an IRS office in Austin, Texas, last February. Stack left behind a 3,000-word, rambling screed about his problems with the U.S. tax code.
These folks sure are slow learners.
