Was the Gifford incident wished for or planned for by the Left ?
It seems this incident is quite happily being adopted by the usual Leftist in both the media and politics. Although is it becoming quite difficult to discern any line between these entities.
Halperin at Time has this wonderful idea:
No one wants the country to suffer another catastrophe. But when a struggling Bill Clinton was faced with the Oklahoma City bombing and a floundering George W. Bush was confronted by 9/11, they found their voices and a route to political revival.
They will likely get all their media elites to espouse the same narrative and this is what the public persona will be of this incident.
Even though the shooters few friends noted he was a Left winger and had met Gifford’s in 2007 and thought she was illiterate. So in other words he had her in his sights BEFORE HE or ANYONE KNEW SARAH PALIN EXISTED.
But this little tidbit of information will likely bypass any scrutiny by the MSNBC illiterati of Brewer, Mitchell, Matthews and of course Big Ed….or Mr. Ed as I call him.
