    Ray Talifaro, the well known liberal talk show host of KGO radio out of San Francisco believes Sarah Palin should be charged for instigating the shooting due to her use if gun related metaphors (don't retreat, reload) and graphic representations of a scope on her websight.

    Yeah, they are blaming her, Sharon Angle and everyone who is pro-gun. Liberalism is a mental disorder.

    I am sure there are ambulance chasers who are willing to take that case, but in reality both sides of the political spectrum can take some of the blame for this tragedy. We have abandoned ethics in political debate it seems and instead of serving the interests of the nation politicians, are focused on petty victories and "gotcha" moments. Meanwhile the nation's economy falters, our infrastructure crumbles, and our enemies grow stronger. It is time for all sides of the political debate to realize that rabidly partisan interests do not serve our nation's interests. We're all in the same boat here, and we'll sink or swim together unless we stand shoulder to shoulder and bail in unison.

    No surprise here, liberals never pass on an opportunity to kick Palin in the teeth. Must be all that tolerance and compassion.

    Yes, and the funny thing is, the Congresswoman who was shot is an outspoken advocate of gun ownership rights and owns weapons herself.

    Only one person deserves blame in this tragic incident: the sick jackhole that did it. PERIOD.

    Prayer, for the Congresswoman who was shot, for our country and for guidance in the upcoming maelstrom.

    ...and prayers for people who'd use such a tragic, horrific event as a platform to make statements like 'liberalism is a mental disorder'.

    I'm not using any platform, it is my belief that liberalism is a mental disorder. I'll pray for you liberal

    Haha A perfect example of my point in my original post. Zeezee, you think liberalism is a mental disorder, and I assume you are certain of your belief. I think unreasoning belief in "God" is a mental disorder, and am certain that religion is a scam for social control of others by those claiming the key to the ONLY path to "eternal life", an empty promise to calm the fears of those who cannot accept that this life is all there is. But I don't put anyone down who thinks differently, the great thing about this country is we have the right to believe what we will. It is only when we turn against each other in attacking beliefs we all have the right to hold that our nation is weakened.

    I do believe Sarah Palin is guilty of one thing...shortsightedness. She tried to play the game of wording things in a way that would appeal to her base and now she is a victim of poor choices and circumstance. I am sure if she could go back now she would not use that same graphic (not that I believe she actually had much to do with it anyway). Sarah Palin IS NOT responsible for the actions of a lone psychotic.

    I have decided though that she is responsible for my broken toe I received in krav maga last week. I would normally blame Bush, but that is getting boring. :)

    Anyone that has seen his youtube videos and believes he is a follower of Sarah or the TEA party has no clue about TEA beliefs, or Sarah's agenda.
    TEA party-ers don't burn flags.
    And I do believe while Sarah has stated that doing so is you right under the first amendment, she wouldn't herself, or advocate for doing it.

    Sorry, but the only lasting effect of this nut-jobs actions will be another round of arguments over our right to own high capacity magazines and/or self loading pistols.

    No one is to blame for this except the ***-hole who pulled the trigger. There is no control over us except ourselves and whatever higher power you choose to answer to. Sarah Palin is not to blame for this, neither is Keith Olbermann. The Sportsmans Warehouse that sold him the gun isn't to blame. The gun isn't to blame. The high capacity magazines aren't to blame either. This was one mentally deranged individual who chose to commit this atrocity.
    The problem is that both sides will use this as an excuse to drum up political rhetoric. The left is already writing bills to ban the evil high capacity ammunition clips, because they are obviously capable of atrocities, just by themselves. The right is already trying to deflect the blame. Both sides need to remember that this was a tragedy and that the answer to the issue lies in providing people with help when they show obvious signs of mental issues. But no matter what we do, no matter what we ban, we will never stop all tragedies like this. We will simply see a shift in the tools utilized to perpetrate them.

    All we can do now is pray for the victims of this tragedy and for the perpetrator and his family as well...

    This would have been a great story had the Senator pulled out her purse gun and got the 1st shot off!

    Agreed. I find it interesting that the politicos go into turbo mode against the 2A when it's one of their own.

    That comment makes too much sense so that answer cannot be right?
