Considering their statements were made in the context of defending themselves against the stupid allegations that they somehow caused him to go postal I don't see an issue.

And his writings that I've heard about don't have any leanings at all, they are mostly incoherent.

And he clearly was mentally unstable, but that doesn't make him evil. His acts were evil. But as it currently stands, we don't know why he acted the way that he did, what rationale drove him, what his thoughts were. In fact, his obsession with lucid dreaming, and some of his incoherent posts on various message boards would indicate that he had problems differentiating from real life and his dreams.
You are yet again proving my point. Why not just call him evil? What is wrong with saying someone is just a bad person?

Would it be too much to ask for a link and a quote displaying the things you are claiming?

I think the descriptions were of a confused, apolitical young man who played video games and was obsessed with grammar. I don't know where you're getting your information, but it doesn't appear to be very reliable.

One of his x-girlfriends said he isn't crazy. Do you believe everything coming out of the mouths of young people who don't always know the meaning of all the terms they use?

It does us no good to link the shooter in one way or the other.

The truth is he is an individual who took too many drugs and killed people. Punish him for the deeds done so he and others don't do the same and call it a day.

Who are simply defending themselves against the wave of ignorant liberals who initially claimed that he was a right wing conservative but now want everyone to "practice restraint" when pointing out that he was in fact a left leaning nut job.

So provide us with a link to where we can READ Palin and Limbaugh's words.

No one ever accused Sarah Palin of being directly responsible for the shootings... Now the right is continuing the "deflect the blame" strategy...
