This crap about "tone" of US politics is the cheap-shot Obama crowd trying to exploit the tragedy, smear its critics, from Day One they were attacking the "Tea Party" - now proven to have nothing to do with it. US newspaper editorials across the country are saying the same thing - cheap-shot false accusations of "vitriol" and "incitement". Nor was the Jewishness of Giffords related in any way - so says the ADL's study of Loughner's writings. Just a nut case who wanted to go out with a bang - its what we have here instead of suicide bombers. It is attacks on Palin (clueless twit but a nice enough lady with an interesting Alaska TV show) that are the "incitement".
