My first thoughts upon learning that Republican congressmen were targeted today by a gunman at a baseball field in Alexandria, Virginia were:
A) I hope the shooter wasn’t a Democrat.
B) I hope the shooter wasn’t a Muslim.
C) What kind of arsenal did the shooter have?
D) How are we going to spin this?
If I’m being honest, concern for the victims didn’t register on my alphabetical list until down around X, Y or Z, and that’s a sad commentary, not just about me, but probably about you, because I’m betting if you’re alive and reading this in Donald Trump’s America, your thought processes were along the same lines.
