A new poll from Qunnipiac University shows the left's attempt to blame conservatives for the Tucson shooting has been an epic fail. Only 15 percent are buying into the bushwa--and even though they express the opinion that "heated political rhetoric" does drive unstable people to violence, by 36-32% they blame the left for the heat!
The way the left usually behaves when one of their narratives tanks like this is simply to pretend that everyone believes it. Watch for news story ledes that say things like, "Does repealing the health care bill add to our overheated political climate?" Or headlines like, "In Spite of Calls for Civility, Republicans Continue to Exist." You know the drill. Every time they blow up another trial balloon, we have to pop it.
