American Vitriol

I can't add to the mountains of words about the shooting in Tucson last weekend. But I would ask one thing:

Why is it the republicans and Tea Partiers think it is smart to respond to calls for civility with anger, outrage, and offense? HOW is it they think that is okay?

Deliver me from discourse, if this is its shape and nature.

I'm not precisely a government employee, but I do consider myself a public servant, and I for one wouldn't mind seeing the hatred and bloodlust for my kind ABATE. Good lord, people. Simmer the hell down.
