Will Bunch asks why.

That's why White House attempt to make Dick Cheney look good Press Secretary Jay Carney said that it's not the time to talk about guns:

As news filtered in Friday from the school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said "today is not the day," to engage in a policy debate over gun control.
At least 20 children dead, and we shouldn't talk about it.

BTW, did you know that there was a school attack in China today?

No Deaths, though 22 were injured.  Guess what?  That guy used knives, and he didn't manage to kill anyone.

The problem is us.  I don't mean that it's the American public as a whole, I mean that specifically, the problem is the liberal community.

We let it slide.  We cut politicians slack, because they need this to fight challenges from the right.

Bull fucking shit.

Remember what happened when we (liberals) stopped accepting the argument that, "He's with us on everything but the war?"

Remember when we defeated Lieberman in the primary?  When we made politicans who were nominally on our side afraid of us?

That's when members of congress startet getting serious about getting the fuck out.

Gun control has to be a litmus test, like Iraq was, and Rov v. Wade is.

I don't care if the district he is running in includes Cletus, Alabama, and the Republican he is running against is a serial murderer.  We cannot support him for his vote for speaker.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
