If you are a reader of the NY Times, why? If you are a subscriber, why haven't you cancelled your subscription?
I am all for free speech, but the works of Paul Krugman are so offensive, no one should support the rantings he offers. The publishers should hang their head in shame.
The "Old Gray Lady" is just a hate-filled crazy old bitch screaming at imaginary kids to get off her lawn, a Gloria Swanson in Sunset Boulevard. Too bad for us, we have seen her close-up. All that remains is the shell of what the paper used to be, and lots of sad partisanship.
Perhaps I should be less obtuse. If you post or write that Sarah Palin, or Rush or the Tea Party or any other person or political view is responsible for the tragedy in Tucson, you have mental problems. You lack the ability to reason coherently, or are so consumed with hate you have lost touch with reality.
Should we blame Democrats and liberals for the attempted assassination of Ronald Reagan? Are liberals and socialists and communists responsible for the murder of JFK? Should we blame all environmentalists for the attacks at the Discovery Channel last year? Is the Daily Kos responsible for Tucson, a co-conspirator with the former Governor of Alaska, since that website "targeted" the Congresswoman from Arizona before last years primaries? Of course not.
Crazy people do crazy shit. Sometimes there is no one to blame.
