Right Wing Round-Up

  • TPM is collecting all the info it can find on James von Brunn, the man held in the shooting at the Holocaust Museum today.
  • Tracy Clark-Flory reports that Operation Rescue wants to buy George Tiller’s now-closed clinic.
  • Bill O’Reilly claims he didn’t refer to Tiller as “Dr. Killer” when covering his murder when he obviously did and Media Matters has the footage.
  • Think Progress points out that when the lone survivor of the deadly attack on the Army-Navy recruiting station in Little Rock, AR last week spoke with reporters yesterday, CNN and MSNBC carried the press conference live while Fox News chose instead to focus on Newt Gingrich’s criticisms of the Obama administration from last night’s congressional Republican fundraiser.
  • Ross Douthat tried to get all philosophical in his latest column on abortion, but Hilzoy, a philosophy professor, was having none of it.
  • Steve Benen notes that it’s “not a good sign” when one-third of Republicans have an unfavorable opinion of their own party and a majority have no idea who speaks for the party.
