Pf-f-f-t. There goes all that newfound civility in press and politics.
Perhaps the most surprising thing about the American left's effort to transform Saturday's Tucson massacre from a tragic attack into an indictment of the American right is how easily the charges crumbled. Had the so-called "paper of record," Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and other politicians and pundits let Americans mourn this tragic atrocity over last weekend, enough facts about accused gunman Jared Lee Loughner might have emerged to dissuade hyperventilating liberals from climbing so far out onto the thin branch that swiftly snapped under them.
Tucsonans are grieved by the loss of family, friends and neighbors and are shaken by the reminder of mortality.

The new Republican-controlled House of Representatives, in addition to reducing big, wasteful and unnecessary spending, also needs to go after and defund those programs and activities that are downright destructive.
From the instant his fruitful eight-year reign ended, Republicans have pined for the next Ronald Reagan. To date, no man has succeeded in filling the conservative standard-bearer's legendary boots. Well, maybe it's time to swap boots for pumps. Could he be a she?
A homeless man whose silky announcing voice has catapulted him to national fame reunited Thursday with his mother, recorded a commercial for Kraft Macaroni & Cheese and agreed to do voiceover work for MSNBC.
Piers Morgan says he's spoiling for a prime-time fight with CNN's rivals _ and he'll throw the first punch with Oprah Winfrey.
