Yet Kevin Clarke a blogger at America's In All Things, somehow ties the tragedy of Tuscon to Glenn Beck and Sara Palin and their millions of readers, listeners and voters. This is an excerpt of Clarke's post entitled, The Tuscon Tragedy.
In the dazed aftermath of the mayhem in Tucson, there has been much digital ink spilled measuring out the blame for the attack on the indiscriminate rhetoric of America's permanent campaign culture as if specific percentages of culpability could be affixed to the loose and unpleasant lips of a Glenn Beck or Sarah Palin. I am not about to defend the lazy and toxic hyperbole of the prevailing political culture, certainly there has been far too much talk of tyranny, treason, and "second amendment" responses in recent cultural-political "debates."
