FREE-FLOATING RAGE, DESPERATELY SEEKING A TARGET
Right-wing blogger Zip at Weasel Zippers, reacting to President Obama's comments on the Fort Hood shooting (emphasis in original):
That he would call yesterday's horrific act of violence an 'outburst of violence' validates that he deserves no respect. It is times like this that I REALLY miss President Bush.
George W. Bush, responding to the conflict between Hamas and Israel last winter, in his weekly radio address, January 2, 2009 (emphasis added):
This recent outburst of violence was instigated by Hamas -- a Palestinian terrorist group supported by Iran and Syria that calls for Israel's destruction.
These people will grasp at any straw, won't they?
