CNN/Opinion Research Poll - January 14-16 - Arizona Shootings  —  Interesting to see that 30% didn't think mental illness didn't play a role in this.  These people are either ignorant of the facts or as delusional as the gunman.  It is scary that that many people could think this insane delusional person had no mental illness.

Scenes From a Marriage  —  In every twisted, wretched, ruinous relationship, there are moments so grim, flare-ups so appalling, that they offer both parties a chance to step back, take inventory, and realize that it's time — far past time, in fact — to go their separate ways.
Ed Morrissey / Hot Air:
Deutsch, Sharpton claim Arizona “has seceded” for not recognizing MLK Day  —  Ah, those layers of fact-checkers and editors in the mainstream media come in handy, don't they?  Thank goodness NBC imposes news standards for its cable channel; otherwise, MSNBC would just spew misinformation and smears to advance a political agenda.

Ed Morrissey / Hot Air:
Obamateurism of the Day  —  Obviously, most Hot Air readers disagree with my assessment (and Allahpundit's) of Barack Obama's speech last Wednesday evening at the University of Arizona.  They also blame Obama more for the odd tone of the event, with its whooping and whistling and t-shirts, than the university that organized it.
Joanne Bamberger / Politics Daily:
Amy Chua, a Yale law professor and the woman who has quickly become the infamous “Chinese Tiger mother,” seems to be a taskmaster and a bully.  I don't know her personally, but after reading the episodes she chose to put in her book, “Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother,” those are the nicest things …
Ed Morrissey / Hot Air:
NYT: Say, maybe we should have waited for the facts before blaming the Right  —  Don't worry, though, because the New York Times' public editor (their term for ombudsman) “shares the view to an extent” (emphasis mine) that the Times and the media rushed to put the Tucson shootings in a political context.
Jonathan Weisman / Wall Street Journal:
