After the monstrous shooting in Arizona last week, surely we can all agree that we've got to pass Obama's agenda immediately and stop using metaphors.At least I think that's what the mainstream media are trying to tell me.Liberals instantly leapt on the sickening massacre at a Tucson political event over the weekend to accuse tea partiers, Sarah Palin and all conservatives who talk out loud of being complicit in murder by inspiring the shooter, Jared Loughner.Of course, to make their case, they first must demonstrate:(a) Right-wingers have called for violence against anyone, especially conservative, pro-Second Amendment Democratic congresswomen;(b) Loughner was listening to them; and(c) Loughner was influenced by them.They've proved none of this. In fact, it's nearly the opposite.Needless to say, no conservative has called for violence against anyone. Nor has any conservative engaged in any "rhetoric" that was likely to lead to violence. Every putative example of "violent rhetoric" these squeamish liberals produce keeps being matched by an identical example from the Democrats.
