WhaTCKAS- Richard Grant: ‘Too smooth to be an accident and too incessant to be real’

Political professionals never rest, and the worst of them never let a crisis go to waste. That is why a tragic, but local, event that men of integrity would have faced with dutiful strength and perspective has instead been whipped into a national spectacle of character assassination and cheap self-advertisement.

The shooting of 20 people in Tucson became the surreal backdrop for a modern witch-hunt, the perfect opportunity to frame and smear a pesky opponent. The media’s speedy and drone-like convergence of attention on Sarah Palin was too smooth to be an accident and too incessant to be real.
