  •  20 mins after Rush said Obama has no birth cert.. (6+ / 0-)

    the right-wing extremist opened fire.

    The shooter has a detailed history of being of the belief that the president has no birth certificate.

    The shooting was about 20 mins after Rush made the comment, by my recollection.

    Was the guy driving around, maybe like he does everyday, guns in the car, fantasizing about exacting some right-wing vengeance, listening to talk radio...and he hears the king of talk radio confirm his views and validate his anger?

    Obviously, something about today was different for the shooter because today, those few minutes, he actually carried out the act. Was part of the motivation, part of what was different today, what he had just heard?
