Two years ago today Obama was still President-Elect. I'd bet pints he'd be assassinated before the inauguration, I've bet pints he'll be assassinated before the end of his first term, I've bet pints on fertilizer bombs detonating at state houses and government buildings by now.
Two years into my obamapostasy and my angrier disassociation from and disgust with the Democratic Party and the professional Left, my first thoughts serve to remind me that abandoning a religion doesn't rid me of that religion's doctrines. Of course I assumed the shooter was a cracker, a christer. Blogrolls spun with similar reflexive conclusions. I'm certain we fulfilled our stereotypical duties better than the shooter fulfilled the stereotypical role we'd assigned him even if the role we'd assigned him turns out to be true.
I've repeatedly asserted that I'm a bigot: I'm not going to pretend that when I see a pick-up with a confederate flag decal in the rear window and gun racks and bumper-stickers about Obama's marxism I don't feel a surge of loathing. Despising the MOCO cracker when I see him doesn't mean I think - hey, wait a minute... I do think he jokes about killing my Democratic congressman. Jeebusfuck, I joke about smashing Steve King's head with an aluminum baseball bat.
Meanwhile, while this bigot leapt as assigned in allegiance to my assumptions - and I gave all thoughts to who did the killing, not one to who was killed; worse, I gave all hope that the shooter was a cracker - watch "deficit hawks" on Capitol Hill fund increased personal security, watch Obama claim this is proof he needs to move ever more diligently to the right, as cause to further marginalize the Left, watch Corporate SEIZE! the chance to push forward the release dates of the next assault on your civil liberties, regardless the ultimate motives of the shooter.
Regardless the ultimate motives of the shooter, watch this play out in the media, in Corporate's boardrooms, in your head, exactly like you think it's going to play out.
