A congressional reporter for The Washington Post decided to revive a liberal talking point that places the blame on the nearly-fatal shooting of former Democratic Rep. Gabrielle Giffords on the Tea Party and heated GOP rhetoric.

The reporter, Paul Kane, tweeted his remarks Friday afternoon in response to an editorial by National Review that criticized recent protests and demonstrations by left-wing activists.
