Everybody's probably familiar by now with the strange story of John Wheeler III. He was an adviser to three Republican presidents, and his body was recently discovered in a Delaware landfill. In the hours leading up to his death, he was seen wandering around aimlessly, in a daze.
Hmmm. A former adviser to three Republican presidents. And his death has been ruled a homicide. M,yes...well, there's only one thing I can say to that:
Mission accomplished, Markos Moulitsas.
Update: More on attempts by the Left to blame the shooting in Tucson on the Right from the Blogprof and Cold Fury.
It is unfortunate that this tragedy has become so quickly politicized (or rather, politicized at all), but our "progressives", ever alert to the main chance, can be counted on to turn each and every such occurrence into a Reichstag fire, a pretext for advancing their cause and silencing their opponents. We have a duty to ourselves, to our country - and, not least of all, to the memory of the people who were murdered in Tucson - to resist efforts by scoundrels like Markos Moulitsas, Paul Krugman and others of their stripe to turn this tragic event into a club to be used against citizens who are engaged in the perfectly lawful exercise of their rights - including, first and foremost, the right to speak freely, even in criticism of their own government.
