I guess you wouldn’t have to be a genius to guess that the right-wing media freak machine would turn the Giffords shooting on its head in their attempts to absolve themselves of fomenting violence. I figured they would get around to accusing the Democrats of using Loughner as a tool–and sacrificing one of their own in the process–to further the left’s cause.
I told my girlfriend on Saturday, about an hour after the shooting, that this would happen. I was only wrong on one score. I predicted it would be Beck who would say it.
Looks like I didn’t give Limbaugh the credit he is due.
