Are Tea Partiers and right-wing Republicans responsible for the horrifying violence we saw yesterday in Arizona? Of course they fucking are. And you don't have to be the sheriff of Pima County to know that.
Let's start with Sarah "Don't Retreat, Reload" Palin -- who cemented her own guilt when she pulled this down from her site before pausing to tap out a fake apology on Facebook.
As I swallowed my daily afternoon Fox News broadcast along with two slices from my go-to
pizza joint, I got to thinking about the Color of Change-sponsored

The most entertaining theater in this grand health care showdown has been that in which physicians play the victim. Look at homeboy right here; don't you just feel awful about the potential impact of "Obamacare"? Make you want to donate five cents a day so Dr. Dickstain can move from the bay side to the ocean?
As a grad student at Boston University’s College of Communication (COM) five years ago, I wrote an op-ed for a campus newsletter called The Muckraker about inconsistencies in alumni relations practices.
