Arizona

A few random and hopelessly inadequate thoughts about what happened in Arizona today:
  • Partisanship doesn't make a man crazy, but it has the power to push crazy in horrible directions.
  • Is it any surprise that if you use hunting and Nazi metaphors to characterize your political opponent, some sick jerk is going to get it into his head to go Nazi hunting?
  • Can we please put the guns and the war rhetoric down and just go back to arguing? It's the most pathetic hope in my paintbox right now, and with each passing week it seems further and further out of reach. This is how the 1960s felt to a lot of people.
