JFK was killed by a nasty little Marxist and Bobby by an anti Israel zealot. They have nothing to do with political discourse today; and they certainly have nothing to do with that crazy kid in Tuscon.
The only way the JFK and Gabrielle Giffords shootings were alike was in the attempt by the media to score political points from the tragedies. Dan Rather got away with the lie that Texas school children cheered at JFK's assassination. Christiane Amanpour and her despicable friends tried to paint the entirely un-centered Jared Lee Loughner as right of center.
But Amanpour hides her mendacity behind common garden variety stupid: She claims that the Kennedy assassinations were "so traumatic that the country never fully recovered.." (at 19 sec.) What? In what area did we not recover? What aspect, what tiny slice, what minuscule bit of America is still diminished because of the assassinations? Of course we fully recovered, you ignorant cow. It's what we do.
