It looks like Arizona, yesterday.

And I don't want to hear, "he was just crazy."

I especially don't want to hear the rhetoric needs to be toned down "on both sides."

The inflammatory, violence-inciting, crazy-person-inspiring rhetoric is coming from one side, and it's not just a few "fringe" bloggers or local radio hosts. It's coming from hugely popular right-wing celebrities with round-the-clock media exposure, from elected Republican officials, and from conservative candidates for major offices all over the country.

Need proof? Here's a list.

Don't bother looking for a similar list on that "other side." It doesn't exist...and if it does? It's probably something Glenn Beck made up.

*For those who don't know, "Second Amendment Remedy" refers to a statement by last year's Republican candidate for U.S. Senator in Nevada Sharron Angle: "You know, our Founding Fathers, they put that Second Amendment in there for a good reason and that was for the people to protect themselves against a tyrannical government. And in fact Thomas Jefferson said it's good for a country to have a revolution every 20 years. I hope that's not where we're going, but, you know, if this Congress keeps going the way it is, people are really looking toward those Second Amendment remedies and saying my goodness what can we do to turn this country around? I'll tell you the first thing we need to do is take [U.S. Senator from Nevada] Harry Reid out."
