Michelle Malkin says it like no other. There are a few off color examples used so forgive me for that. But her examples show the sheer hypocrisy of the proaganda producing left.

“In logic and rhetoric, a fallacy is incorrect reasoning in argumentation resulting in a misconception. By accident or design, fallacies may exploit emotional triggers in the listener or interlocutor (e.g. appeal to emotion), or take advantage of social relationships between people (e.g. argument from authority). Fallacious arguments are often structured using rhetorical patterns that obscure the logical argument, making fallacies more difficult to diagnose.”
From Wikipedia

The tragic shooting in Arizona has brought out the worst in many liberals. While the taking of any life should be considered horrible, some have chosen to attempt to make political hay out of the tragedy. In their unbridled zeal,they have overlooked facts in order to set forth their fallacies. They have focused on the congresswoman’s political affiliation in order to attempt to create a false association between this criminal and their political enemies.
While the wounded congresswoman is indeed a Democrat, she is anything but far left. She is pro-gun and against illegal immigration. I guess that doesn’t sit well in their propaganda. But what of the judge, the judge who was murdered was a Republican appointee, yet that is not making the headlines. Tragically overlooked as well, is the murder of a little girl, as well as several others murdered, and many others wounded. But I suppose that is all just insignificant in the tin foil leftist’s agenda. Their focus is in creating the hatred of which they attempt to claim is the cause of this tragedy.
But let us focus on their fallacy. They claim that because she was a Democrat she was targeted by “right wing extremists”. I thought about this and came up with an interesting fallacy of my own. Based on the left’s logic, we now need to revisit the attempted assassination of President Reagan. Being that President Reagan was a Conservative Republican we must assume that Mr. Hinckley was an agent of the DNC. After all, if someone attacks someone from a certain party then based on tin foil liberal logic the opposing party is responsible. His infatuation with Jodie Foster was just a cover-up. We can also blame the liberal media elite of the day much like the leftists are blaming Rush Limbaugh. Therefore we must blame Peter Jennings, Barbara Walters, Ted Koppel, Dan Rather, and the many others who openly criticized President Reagan.
Obviously I have being facetious about my theory, but am using it to show how ridiculous the left is. Sadly, this smells of typical leftist propaganda that has been used in so many other countries. The definition at the top of the page speaks volumes of their motives. Their motive is to trigger emotional rather than rational responses. In reality if there is anyone to blame outside of the deranged individual who performed this crime it may well be the liberal media and politicians which have chosen to stir up bitterness through class envy and lies.
Sadly the real tragedy will be overshadowed. A little girl and others are dead and all the left can do is play games with a tragedy. This is what the left has to offer?
