"This just in"

Further study of the case of the Arizona shooter known as Jared Lee Loughner reveals that his real name is Jelal al-Lakhman. He was acting in accord with his Islamist beliefs.

Learning of this fact, many liberal and left commentators have changed their point of view. The shooter acted alone and not in connection with any particular ideology.

The above is a satire, of course. But is does point up the way that the politically correct Excuse Machine springs into action whenever any jihadist outrage occurs. But in cases like this, these commentators are immediately primed to blame Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck, and tutti quanti on the right.

I have no enthusiasm for Palin and Beck; I wish that they would just go away. But it seems like partisan opportunism to blame them for the actions of this confused, demented individual, Jared Lee Loughner.
