“It’s Hard to Know What to Say”

Jon Stewart offers his thoughts on the tragic shooting in Tucson last night.  ““I do think that its important for us to watch our rhetoric, I do think that its a worthwhile goal not to conflate our political opponents with our enemies if for no other reason than to draw a better distinction between the manifestos of paranoid mad men and what passes for acceptable political and pundit speak. It would be really nice if the ramblings of crazy people didn’t in any way resemble how we actually talk to each other on TV. Let’s at least make troubled individuals easier to spot.”

And Slade is right on the money: “So many members of the media are trying their best to rationally explain the irrational, but sometimes not knowing what to say is the appropriate response.”
