CNN's Erick Erickson is upset with what people aren't saying about the attempted assassination of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords: "Through it all though, well meaning people on both sides of the ideological and partisan divide are not talking about the one thing that should be talked about—a saving faith in Jesus Christ." For the record: Rep. Giffords is Jewish, so "a saving faith in Jesus Christ" might not be "the one thing that should be talked about."
Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-NC) says political rhetoric doesn't really incite violent behavior at all—but not before describing Arizona shooting suspect Jared Loughner as a "communist" and "the liberal of liberals."
Rush Limbaugh reacted to the instantly infamous mugshot of Jared Lee Loughner, the suspected gunman in the Arizona shooting, by saying that the reason Loughner is smiling in the picture is because he knows he is backed by the Democratic Party.
