Wow. Just wow.

Palm Beach Post columnist Jose Lambiet is using the Tucson massacre to attack the parents of one of Democrat Rep. Gabrielle Giffords’ surgeons because they happen to be GOP donors and Tea Party supporters.

Never mind the inanity of holding a son responsible for his mother and father’s ideological views and campaign contributions.

The idea of attacking the parents’ wealth and political activism to mock the doctor and ply the Blame Righty line is just…gross:

The name of Michael Lemole, the University of Arizona neurosurgeon who’s been treating U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords’ brain injuries since the Jan. 8 shooting, may sound familiar to Palm Beachers.

That’s because Lemole’s mom and pop, heart surgeon Gerald Lemole and his wife, Emily, live in a $7.1 million house on The Island. They also own a more modest $3.5 million house, also in Palm Beach.

And while Michael is saving the life of the moderate Democratic congresswoman, Gerald and Emily are more into the far, far Right — including Tea Party goofball Christine O’Donnell!

According to campaign filings, Lemole’s parents have showered with thousands in contributions — $15,700 in 2010 alone — Tea Party candidates vying for national offices.

Ironically: Among their favorites are some of the very people whose controversial rhetoric and campaigns are said to provide a fertile ground for the likes of Jared Loughner, who allegedly injured Giffords and killed six others in Tucson. (emphasis added)

Gotta love that passive voice to try and escape accountability for trafficking a baseless smear: “Are said to provide.”

But remember…being a Tea Party-bashing liberal means never having to say you’re sorry.
