Q: What makes someone who politicizes shootings call for a temporary moratorium on politicizing shootings?

A: When the person who pulled the trigger writes a manifesto saying he’s a fan:

Yes, the man who thinks Sarah Palin owes Gabby Giffords an apology and that the NRA is responsible for Adam Lanza’s actions suddenly doesn’t want to politicize a shooting. What gives?

A bizarre manifesto by Dr. Dorner was first published by KTLA-TV, where he praised President Obama and his gun control efforts, along with media that touted those efforts, such as Morgan.

“[G]ive Piers Morgan an indefinite resident alien and Visa card,” the manifesto reads. “Mr. Morgan, the problem that many American gun owners have with you and your continuous discussion of gun control is that you are not an American citizen and have an accent that is distinct and clarifies that you are a foreigner. I want you to know that I agree with you 100% on enacting stricter firearm laws …. If you had [sic] a well regulated AWB [assault weapons ban], this would not happen. The time is now to reinstate a ban that will save lives. Why does any sportsman need a 30 round magazine for hunting? Why does anyone need a suppressor? Why does anyone need a AR15 rifle?”

Morgan would have written the same things he did in the Tweets above if the suspected killer had expressed support for the Tea Party or had voiced agreement with Rush Limbaugh, right?

Everybody mentioned in the “manifesto,” including Morgan, obviously aren’t to blame for the killings (unless we apply Morgan’s usual reasoning — or lack thereof). If only this particular situation were enough to make Morgan recognize the glaring flaw in his thinking. It won’t be enough — because what Morgan does isn’t thinking, it’s raw political opportunism that has been forced to take a brief hiatus.
