Rightbloggers comfort the real victims of the Gabrielle Giffords shooting: themselves

Over at The Pitch, Roy Edroso nails the rank hypocrisy that is the right wing’s fainting couch response to the suggestion that their relentless eliminationist rhetoric may be angrying up the blood of the crazies out there.

Though such extraordinary self-pity may seem from the outside depressing to live with, it has its advantages. It gives the sufferer’s life purpose and meaning. Since he’s always the victim, he never has to step up and accept responsibility for anything. In short, being a conservative means never having to say you’re sorry, which makes it ideal for people who are fundamentally incapable of admitting they ever have anything or anyone besides themselves to be sorry for.
