In the Crosshairs of the SWNIDish Memory

Since Saturday we've been sleepless trying to recall what it was in the SWNIDish memory that resembled the absurd blaming of conservative metaphoric language for Jared Loughner's rampage.

At last, we recall.

It is Ross Perot's dropping out of the 1992 Presidential campaign [violent metaphor alert] because he said that the Bush campaign was about to release altered photos of his daughter's wedding.

In politics one can blame anyone for anything, for any or no reason.
