Well, That Was Fast.

Putz yesterday:

ERIC CANTOR’S DISTRICT OFFICE SHOT AT LAST NIGHT. I blame Courtland Milloy’s inflammatory rhetoric.

Other wingnuts, great and small, piled on.

As always happens with these stories, whether of considerable significance (the existence of mass destruction in Iraq) or trifling (the non-existence of Jamil Hussein), reality eventually overtakes the wingnut narrative...

The No. 2 Republican in the House went on national television on Thursday to say that it was not just Democrats receiving threats, he was a target too.
But that bullet that pierced the window in House Minority Whip Eric Cantor’s Richmond office was merely a stray shot from a random act of gun fire, a Richmond Police department spokesman told POLITICO Friday afternoon.

It's safe to say that this development will not be acknowledged by Putz et al.
