“Acts Of Violence Against Political Figures Destroy Democracy Itself”

From conservative pundit Andrew Sullivan, who is the kind of conservative non-conservatives could have great conversations with:

When a congresswoman is shot in the head in the very act of democracy, we should all pause. This is fundamentally not a partisan issue and should not be. Acts of violence against political figures destroy democracy itself, for both parties. We don’t know who killed congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and we should be very cautious in drawing any conclusions yet about why. But we can know that, whoever killed her and for whatever reason, political rhetoric involving words like “target” and “gun-sights” is inherently irresponsible.

Word.
