The bodies in Aurora were barely cool before ABC shamelessly attempted to tie James Holmes to the Tea Party. Lefty propagandists should be careful about portraying the pointless bloodbath from a political point of view, in light of this:
After apparently speaking with law enforcement in Colorado, New York’s Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said when police apprehended Holmes, “He clearly looked like a deranged individual. He had his hair painted red. He said he was “The Joker,” obviously quote “the enemy” of Batman.” …
One high school friend said Holmes always rooted for the “bad guys” in superhero movies, which he found odd.
In the “Dark Knight” graphic novel by [Frank] Miller, the Joker slaughters the audience of a television talk show with gas.
If his creators see Batman as like Romney, and Holmes sees himself as the Joker, this horrific incident isn’t going to fit the “mainstream” media’s preconceived template any better than the Jared Loughner killings did.
