As expected, the media, leftist politicians, and anyone else who has a complete and total disconnect from what is cause and effect, made a connection between the Arizona murderer and free speech. Except they do not call it free speech. It is 'hate' speech. And this 'hate' speech apparently only emanates from the right side of the political spectrum. A few glaring examples of Right wing hate speech are highlighted over at The Blog Prof's site:
■ Dick Cheney Should Die: "He is an enemy of the country, in my opinion. Dick Cheney is an enemy of the country....Lord, take him to the Promised Land, will you? See, I don't even wish the guy goes to Hell, I just want to get him the hell out of here." (Ed Schultz)

But don't let anything like that dissuade our junior senator Debbie Stabenow from joining the chorus of those who (as usual) have it all backward. Her insipid qualities in a less threatening role as a US senator would be giggle producing. Certainly a few laughs could be had when one exclaims "I can feel global warming when I fly.." I mean.. THAT is outright funny!
