Bernie Sanders Extorts Blood Money

The Weekly Standard is reporting that Bernie Sanders (S-VT) is profiteering off of the Arizona shooting:
This afternoon Sanders sent out a fundraising appeal, seeking to raise money to fight Republicans and other “right-wing reactionaries” responsible for the climate that led to the shooting.
Don't confuse that ch-ching you hear with the sound of spent casings hitting the pavement outside a Safeway in Arizona. The two are only related in Bernie Sanders fundraising letter.

I'm a Libertarian, maybe that's why i don't understand how the Tea Party asking for donations is any different than Bernie Sanders? That's called hypocrisy the same thing the Libs have been doing by ignoring their own violent hate speech..I am a big Tea Party fan but asking for donations is sick.

@Jeff,

Various Tea Parties ask for donations. Some of the reasons for include: rent/utilities for an office, yard signs, literature, event costs (permits, sound systems, airfare for out-of-state speakers), postage, phone charges (phone banking), etc. That's just off the top of my head.

If that makes you sick, well, I don't know what to tell you.
