RIP the Arizona Six

“What really matters, what is the great black beast that we have to fear, is the right wing.”  – Lyndon Baines Johnson

So it begins.  When you draw a target on someone, as Sarah Palin did on Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, don’t be surprised when someone starts shooting.

Update, Sunday, January 9, 2011: Alas, this kind of behavior calls into question the sincerity of Palin’s condolences.  Not that one expects much sincerity of a sociopath.   The friend who forwarded the link to me made a comment about “the banality of evil,” but I question his word choice.  I think it would be more accurate to characterize this as an example, not of the banality of evil, but of the evil of evil.
