The tragic shooting in Arizona also marks the passing of a political baton. Where deranged left wingers once blamed George W. Bush for every disaster, they now blame Sarah Palin.
We have been seeing a gradual transition from Bush Derangement Syndrome to Palin Derangement Syndrome ever since President Bush left office and began keeping a low profile. The transition now seems complete.
Or maybe it is just that even the deranged left wingers who accused George W. Bush of every evil under the sun couldn’t stomach the irony of blaming W for the inflamed rhetoric that they condemn in others but practice themselves.
