★ Sanders Fundraises Off Arizona Murders

From the Weekly Standard:

There has been no shortage of individuals and institutions that have sought to capitalize on the shootings in Tucson. Add Vermont senator Bernie Sanders to that list.

This afternoon Sanders sent out a fundraising appeal, seeking to raise money to fight Republicans and other “right-wing reactionaries” responsible for the climate that led to the shooting

Having lived in Vermont when Sanders was elected and seen up-close the kind of Senator he is, this is sadly unsurprising.
