    Although I don’t often agree with Joe Scarborough’s positions on issues, he has one quality that is not found among rw politicians. He is not afraid to chastise his party members when he thinks they have crossed the line. It does appear at this time that Scarborough and McCain are the only GOP adults in the room, and that’s sad. I would think that in a party that plays up the Christian angle as part of its platform, you would be able to find more members besides McCain and Scarborough who are willing to tell Palin, Beck, Limbaugh, Savage, Bruce, and the others to stop the violent rhetoric and to stop using images that are related to violence.

    I’ve noticed that since the massacre in AZ, many on the right have refused to accept responsibility for the negative political climate that hovers over America just as they’ve refused to accept responsibility for the fact that carrying guns to a political event sends a message that the participants do believe in Second Amendment remedies as a solution to political differences. None of those whom Scarborough called out will suffer any consequences should another person influenced by their rhetoric commit an act similar to the one committed in AZ by Loughner. I don’t see these individuals toning down the violent rhetoric as long as they can earn a buck for doing it.
