Earlier today it was noted (by Mary Katherine Ham at Townhall and Steve Benen at the Carpetbagger Report, among others) that Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and John Edwards quickly posted prominent messages about the Virginia Tech shootings on their Web sites, while Rudy Giuliani, John McCain, and Mitt Romney didn't.

Nearly seven hours after those post went up, Giuliani has added a statement to his site -- but McCain and Romney still haven't.

Do Romney and McCain think that by not expressing sympathy or sorrow on their sites that they're sending a coded message to the GOP base? Is it risky in GOP Land to declare mass murder a bad thing if the mass murder is committed using guns?


UPDATE, TUESDAY MORNING: Well, McCain now has a statement, a couple of screens in. Mitt too.
