What's the Matter with Kansas?

I think I was the last person to read about the terrible slaying of Dr. George Tiller yesterday Sullivan has links to some of the terrible decisions that parents have to make when they consider late term abortions. They have a suspect in custody.

it's sickening. to the core. Sullivan has v.good coverage of this. here's a quote from John Cardinal O'Connor."If anyone has an urge to kill someone at an abortion clinic, they should shoot me. ... It's madness. It discredits the right-to-life movement. Murder is murder. It's madness. You cannot prevent killing by killing." -

Of course O'Reilly threw oil on the fire of the debate years ago (there's a quote on Sullivan from him from 2006) -- and this is what terrifies me vis a vis the whole marginalization of the far right with Sotomayor and even our president. They have guns and they're willing to use them.
