Diva down!

But P+J do not believe that the regrettably low level of "discourse" triggered the shootings. Our inability to come up with a reasonable strategy to provide help for people who are violently/dangerously mentally ill is one factor. The other is our moronic gun laws — not least the "everybody can carry a concealed weapon" lunacy that is the law of the land in Arizona.

On the other hand, that a Sarah Palin minion who claimed with a straight face that the infamous crosshairs on her web site, targeting Congressional candidates, was really a "land surveying symbol" is truly pathetic. "Lock and load," "don't retreat, reload," and all the other cutesy gun rhetoric is what it is and it oughta be dialed back, period.
