As reported by The NY Times (via NRO, h/t Weasel Zippers), Jared Loughner — among his many mental illnesses — was caught up in Bush Derangement Syndrome (emphasis added):

He became intrigued by antigovernment conspiracy theories, including that the Sept. 11 attacks were perpetrated by the government and that the country’s central banking system was enslaving its citizens. His anger would well up at the sight of President George W. Bush, or in discussing what he considered to be the nefarious designs of government.

So will all the people claiming that right-wing rhetoric inspired Loughner now run corrections?
