After hearing of the tragic shooting yesterday in Arizona, there were two reactions.
Person A, hearing the news:
What a tragedy. What kind of nutjob shoots up a peaceful assembly and kills innocent people for no reason?
SARAH PALIN HAS BLOOD ON HER HANDS. TEA PARTIERS ARE MURDERERS. THE INFLAMMATORY RHETORIC OF THE RIGHT MUST BE STOPPED.
Only one of these two people is rational. The other is an idiot who jumped to an unfounded conclusion with limited information, before they even knew the name of the shooter.
Turns out, he’s a nutjob. This was not a political event, but a politician (two, actually) was involved. It’s horrible; those who wish to make political hay are scumbag idiots.
