I am always amazed how smart the public really is....

Re: I am always amazed how smart the public really is....

What political spin? Just about everything I've seen from the mainstream press has been discussions of this as a cultural issue.

 

However, the rightwing press pre-emptively started their centrifuge on the presmption that the mainstream and left press would make it political so began to talk it back before the barrel of that glock was cool. And, admittedly there has been some reaction to that. But it started with the freaks out there.

 

I'm surprised those numbers aren't higher. I haven't encountered many people who want to talk about anythign other than the cultural aspects of this. Everybody is pretty much sick of politics.

 

And as we prove here daily, too many people get their news from generally anonymous sources on the internet...from people free to write....like you and me and everybody else here....to their hearts desire without the bridle of an editor. And anything anyone says can become, for somebody else, part of that great news reporting conduit  "They say....."

I would hope the numbers that regard the shooter as a nutcase not motivated by conservative talk are much higher than what the CBS poll indicates. If guys like the political hacks on here, Krugman in the NY times, and the sheriff have 40% of America behind them, we really are a stupid nation. I have read what is out there, and I think the attack was more likely to have been motivated by the her proximity than any other factor. And she was one of the most conservative democrats out there, voting to oust Nancy Pepsicoli.....smart lady. (I should say "is", too.....I think Gabby Giffords is expected to survive now.) I think some of the hacks that post  here on the left would run over her with a bus because she is not leftist enough.

 

Of course we (the collective "we") did elect Barry S. , but in all fairness, he did run as a centrist and not as a socialist. And McCain DID pick Sarah Palin to remove any chance of victory. So maybe being amazed at the smarts of America is premature.

Every single one of the 40% are dyed in the wool Democrats. Canuck was searching in another post like Diogenes for someone who didn`t think the tragedy was politcal, he only found Bruce Smiley Very Happy.....Hello Canuck every blessed Conservative from minute 1 said "the guy is nuts, nothing political!!"  It was Democrats thinking "Glory Hallelujah! We can pin this on the Tea Party!!!".  Yes, 40% Idiots in this country, we have our work cut out.
