    WASHINGTON — Most Americans reject the idea that inflammatory political language by conservatives should be part of the debate about the forces behind the Arizona shooting that left six people dead and a congresswoman in critical condition, a USA TODAY/Gallup Poll finds.
    A 53% majority of those surveyed call that analysis mostly an attempt to use the tragedy to make conservatives look bad. About a third, 35%, say it is a legitimate point about how dangerous language can be.

    And there is little sense that stricter gun control laws in Arizona might have averted the tragedy. Only one in five say they would have prevented the shooting; 72% say tighter controls wouldn't have prevented it.

    Hopefully, all this silly finger-pointing and unfair playing "The Blame Game" will come to an end now that it has become increasingly clear what many of us here have been saying all along --- that the only real blame rests within the twisted mind of a mentally disturbed 22 year old man.

    Except, such a poll would require Conservatives, who are a significant portion of the US public, to blame themselves for this tragedy.

    Well, DUH, that isn't gonna happen. I see no validity in this.
