    Re: Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords Shot In Arizona

    I watched in disgust yesterday as each of the Sunday morning talk shows cleverly talked about our current state of "political discourse" - adding cute phrases like "not to blame the tea party, but in terms of the tone of the debate".

    Not only are they patently wrong about the gunmen's politics - people who know him describe him as left wing if anything - but the complete lack of shame to call this guy anything but mentally deranged is truly a disgrace. This isn't a coherent individual striking out against the system. This is a demented nutjob who roamed the town, giving everyone he met the creeps.

    This was the guy you see walking along the road arguing out loud with no one. His rants and arguments were entirely disjointed, making no sense whatsoever. I'm still not sure what he meant by the government controlling our minds "and grammar". What the hell is all that about?

    Yet, there they were, all lathered up, rushing to point fingers at the tea party. And this, mere hours after the tragedy. I know that about 0.01 percent of the populations watches these shows anyway, but it's still maddening.

    And yet, the media still struggles to understand their irrelevance.

    Yes, he was crazy. Yes, he is to blame and not the tea party or Palin or Beck or Oberman.

    But the discourse, another issue, is too over the top, and deserving of discussion and criticism.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Of course Vicchio has nothing to say.

    How about sorry?

    How about apologizing for Beck, Hannity, and Limbaugh?

    How about apologizing for your own hyper-partisan rhetoric?

    How about telling the xenophobic, paranoid, fear mongering voices in the tea party to STFU?

    Or you could just spread the lies and spin being emailed around the country by the GOP and the Tea Party in their defense.
