Let's count who has been blamed so far by the Moderate & Tolerant Ones: Sarah Palin, the entire state of Arizona, the Tea Party, and let's blame all of talk radio, too, while we're at it, because the killer in Tucson must have been listening to talk radio stations in Cleveland and Philadelphia.
snip
It's like blaming Paul McCartney ("Helter Skelter") for Charles Manson, or J.D. Salinger for Lennon's killer. At least Manson and Chapman said they were inspired by "Helter Skelter" and "Catcher In The Rye." (Both a perfect example of how a deranged person is capable of being "inspired" by "messages" never intended in the real world).
snip
In other words, according to the Civility Police, here's what it comes down to: If there is a violent, mentally disturbed man in Tucson, Arizona, something must then be wrong with every registered Republican, all of Arizona, and whole radio stations, except for the politicians and the radio stations theat the Civility Police agree with.
snip
Sarah Palin is right. She is being slandered. Nothing reflects the vulgarity of the national conversation over the past few years more than the relentless "hating" of Sara Palin, particularly in the Jewish community, particularly those Jews who flatter themselves as being tolerant, as masters of civility.

It's not a term she should have used, but she would have to know history, and there's no reason to believe that she does.

She obviously has many interests; there's just no evidence that's one of them.
