Michelle Malkin has a great wrap up of rhetoric from the Left that shows the hypocrisy of blaming the actions of a deranged young man in Arizona on any recent political rhetoric.

I'm not sure who really has the taste for any more disgusting and completely baseless political accusations like the kind the sheriff in this case perpetuated. It's about the truth here, and standing up for the falsely accused is going to have to be part of that. Malkin writes, "They want to play tu quo que in the middle of a national tragedy? They asked for it. They got it."

At a time when all you want to do is pray, hope, and see the suspect brought to justice, people making PUBLIC accusations that have no facts is just irresponsible. So far, I've seen no reports that show the suspect could be classified/stereotyped as anything other than disturbed.
