Put the Gun Metaphors Away

Keith Olbermann hosted a special edition of Countdown last night where he spent the full hour addressing yesterday morning's horrible shooting incident that claimed the lives of seven people and left Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords in critical condition.  He ended the program with this commentary on the need for pundits, politicos, and populi alike to tone down the violence-tinged political rhetoric that's grown so unhinged that it could, quite possibly, have allowed this to happen (and that goes for both sides of the partisan divide).  Transcript here.
