Yes, wingnut rhetoric is dangerous and irresponsible and loony.

But worrying about whether or not wingnut rhetoric is responsible for the Tucson nutjob, well, that’s like worrying about shutting the barn door after the horse has been shot and fucked and sold for glue.

Surely: this shooting was horrific.

But then, wingnut rhetoric has directly led to mind-boggling numbers of deaths in Iraq and Afghanistan; it’s ruined the American economy; it’s made torture routine; it has succeeded in preventing the nation from taking effective action to prevent environmental catastrophe.
