How long before the media implies that the guy in Wisconsin is a right-wing nut? They'll prob try and tie him to Scott Walker...—

Answer: not long.
While some were satisfied to link the alleged gunman in Sunday’s Oak Creek, Wis., Sikh temple shooting to Gov. Scott Walker, others decided to go the extra mile and blame Walker directly.
Lots of white terrorists in America. Westboro Baptist Church, KKK, some dumb ass skinheads, Michele Bachman, Scott Walker to name a few…—

The Koch / Scott Walker vision for America played out today in their home state. Somewhere, the Tea Party is saluting.—

The left has had plenty of practice demonizing Walker, who survived a recall election in June following his passage of budget reforms in Wisconsin, and apparently there’s no waiting period for politicizing the temple victims’ deaths.
Don't forget that Walker doesn't think that the police officers and EMTs that kept today from being worse don't deserve their pay or bennies—

This attempt at humor is certainly “too soon,” but it’s hard to imagine when it might ever be considered funny.
