Naturally: Rush Limbaugh Added to Sheriff’s Blame List

National Review’s Rich Lowry touched on this earlier, but it appears that Jared Loughner’s descent into ultimate evil has been documented to have started as far back as 2007 — long before the first “Tea Party” and prior to Sarah Palin becoming a household name.

Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik, the man at the forefront of a murder investigation but who is acting hell-bent to prove that he learned everything he knows about responsible law enforcement from the Police Academy movies, has helped peddle the Palin/Tea Party line as much as anybody. But due to the fact that it’s now being learned that Loughner’s craziness preceded the formation of the Tea Party, the good Sheriff might have found it necessary to fill in that gap in the timeline. Dupnik has added Rush Limbaugh to his blame repertoire.

Dupnik, who might be well advised to read up about a guy named Mike Nifong before continuing on his present course, was aware of other threats Loughner had made, and, for reasons so far known only to his office, took no action.

The day could come when Sheriff Dupnik’s own role in this may be called into question. Unfortunately, MSNBC, CNN or the New York Times’ idea of holding Dupnik accountable may be to ask him, “Sheriff, knowing Jared Loughner’s previous warning signs, why didn’t you recommend that Sarah Palin be taken into custody long ago?” But at least it would be a start.

Oh well, at least some editorial cartoonists are keeping things rational:
