Andrew Sullivan; "I'm inclined to see it as a potential pivot in our politics and culture, but it's obviously too soon to know."
Just incase anyone thought the shooting might make the right wing a tiny bit less gross, the neo-con press reaction to the memorial was:
1.)Obama was lying about Giffords opening her eyes. (despite it being verified just before the event by her doctors)
2.)Obama planted members of his campaign(?) in the crowd to sell pro-Obama t-shirts (it has yet to be verified if anyone was selling tshirts if at all, and they certainly weren't connected to Obama)
3.)The hoots and hollers in the audience were both totally inappropriate and were pro-Obama plants. YOU'RE NOT SUPPOSED TO ACT THAT WAY AT A FUNERAL!! (it was a memorial service)
4.) Obama took it as an opportunity to campaign for 2012 because....he said something in front of people I guess, or something.
5.)Obama read from the bible which was his way of flipping the bird to the USA#1 because he is a godless communist muslim socialist liberal radical baptist negro terrorist.
So, yeah...if you needed anymore proof that the right in this country are a bunch of unhinged, soulless pieces of fucking degenerate scum, this is only the day after.
Bomb them with love and beat them at the polls.
He's totally faking cuz he wants to make us think he totally cares

Tad sappy towards the end, but overall very powerful.
Everyone got to read their favorite passive aggressive speech from the War Bible and pretend not to fucking hate each other for a few hours, but we still do.
I just noticed that his hair has gotten a lot more white in it since his Presidency began.
Articles have been written on precisely this phenomenon; happens to all of em it seems.
Daniel's sad little froggy face when got outed as a hero was hilarious. Ha, his trapezoidal little mouth.

I watched this with a group of people. About half were crying and it was an interesting experience. I'm glad I can be proud of my president this time around.
