This is a touchy subject and I realize that, so I'm going to do what I usually do in these situations - let my TV do my thinking for me.

From MSNBC's Keith Olbermann: "The Associated Press has confirmed the obvious - that the alleged killer, James von Brunn, has been associated with right-wing extremism."

That's right, the right is to blame for this monster they have created.

Well, not the entire right.

"Better than anyone on the right, Rush Limbaugh knows not to bother denying that von Brunn's rhetoric sounds a lot like Rush Limbaugh's," Olbermann continued.

Yes, von Brunn is a Limbaugh disciple. Although, can you really be someone's disciple if you publish a book called Zionist Rape of the Holy Land 12 years before Rush was even on national radio? The insidious Limbaugh and his violence-inspired time machine!

By the way, according to Amazon, people who purchased Zionist Rape of the Holy Land also liked My Friend Adolf, as well as Aryans Are from Mars, Jews Are from Venus and He's Just Not That Into Anyone.

And what did Limbaugh have to say about these accusations?

"Now this Jew hater who killed yesterday is a nut, and I doubt that he was influenced by anything other than his own mental illness," he said.

Yes, thank you. He was a crazy person acting alone and not influenced by anybody. Unless ...

"If anything, this guy's beliefs, this guy's hate, stems from influence that you find on the left, not on the right," Limbaugh said.

This man was a mentally ill, lone wolf, leftist-inspired femi-Nazi? Look, the left has its crazy people, but this guy wasn't one of them.

So, if the right didn't do it, then the left did it. Unless ...

"Why does an 88-year-old psycho have access to weapons? Because groups like the NRA make it possible," commented Ed Schultz on MSNBC.

Right? How could they allow this man to get ahold of the .22-caliber, almost antique squirrel-shooting rifle he had? Though it does back up what I've been saying all along - the NRA has got to embrace an 80-year waiting period on gun purchases.

Anyone else have any blame or vindication they need to get out of their systems? Conservative commentator Glenn Beck, how about you?

"I'm not stirring the pot. I am pointing out that the pot is boiling and there is trouble in America," Beck said. "Have you ever heard of don't blame the messenger?"

Beck has a point. There, I said it! In a tragedy like this, you can only blame the shooter, not the media context around him.

You know what? Maybe we're all to blame and no one is to blame. You can't crazy-proof the world. You can't restrain public discourse. You can only contain it to levels that won't provoke the craziest among us.

The truth is, anyone out there giving their opinion wants to be heard and wants to have some impact. Just not that kind of impact.
