It would be nice to wait before trying to exploit the horrible tragedy in Tucson, but while TV anchors were getting it wrong on who was dead and who wasn't, the Internet was abuzz over the shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona.
Because she had a Tea Party opponent in a spirited race for reelection, the narrative is that virulent opposition to ObamaCare fueled the rage that led a man to shoot 19 people including Ms. Giffords.
I don't know what happened but to use this as a metaphor for the health care debate is wrong.
There are a lot of people dead and wounded. Let's worry about them....Although that's not what will happen. This crazy and evil rage will inflame the debate I fear.
