Thanks for this, Sally. It's just heartbreaking to see how the hate-fueled climate in this nation, fueled by Lonesome Rhodes wannabees like Glenn Beck, has led to events like this, or like Oklahoma City in 1995.

Our elected representatives should be able to face the public without fear, yet there are people who are profiting from creating a climate of fear that causes unstable persons to commit such awful acts.

A terrible tragedy. I also thought of Walz's Hyvee stops.

The Republicans have been riding to Victory on the "Four Horsemen of Calumny—Fear, Ignorance, Bigotry, and Smear" for quite awhile now and then they act shocked and surprised when an unbalanced person takes them seriously.

I also believe that bluestem had a post on th Farmfest talk by Walz two summers ago. I thought the women whom disrupted the talk then was possibly unstable as well.
