The tragic cost of political capital

Early today the world learned of yet another horrific shooting in an American school by a crazed gunman.  Almost immediately there were reports of those on the left politicising the tragedy.  In these days of global social media, every would be commenter has the means to stick their oar in, for better or worse.  

Including the head leftie, the Democrat President, who got a spot on the telly, showed some crocodile tears and said “we’re going to have to come together and take meaningful action to prevent more tragedies like this, regardless of the politics.”  Code for Democrats and some RINOs to show their anti-gun hands and gut the Second Amendment.

Already the despicable left leaning spin doctors and their leftie masters are crafting their measured statements 'of solemn regret and hardened resolve'  to exact political capital out of this tragedy.  While the sun has not set and bodies are still cooling.

I see the frightened parents, relatives and colleagues beginning to mourn their tragic losses and can only think of the horrors that will unfold as the story is told in all its gory detail whilst they face Christmas without their loved ones.

Meanwhile the vile politics of those that infest the left will continue.  Sage words from the previous tragedy earlier this year in Aurora:

No one wants to make a scene at a funeral.  There's something quite political about that, though. After all, the reason the campaigns are behaving this way is not just because of decorum, but because a breach of decorum would exact a political cost. Politics are an inevitable part of a collective national trauma, which, for better or for worse, is how America treats incidents like this one.
National tragedies are political. They're too important not to be.

That's right chief. The last thing you would want as a good conservative in the face of a mass shooting is to look at the reason these things keep happening. Just shut up go about your business and don't ask questions!
