Credibility Lost

So I was reading TPM the other day and noticed that Obama was polling well in Arkansas, a "deep red" state. And then today I check HuffPo and read that the Arkansas Democrat Party Chairman has been shot dead. And then I read that the alleged gunman was also shot dead by police.

The story is that he was pissed at losing his job. Maybe that's true. Maybe it isn't.

Again, we'll never know.

UPDATE: The familiar police refrain:
Lieutenant Hastings said the motive for the shooting was unclear.

"That's something that we'll be looking into. Right now we don't have an answer for you on that," he said, adding that the suspect was not a former Gwatney employee.
