Playing Politics with the Tucson Tragedy: Join the Live Chat

[cnn-photo-caption image=http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2009/images/01/02/liveblogfinal.copy.jpg]

Since the shootings in Tuscon last weekend, there's been hand-wringing on all sides about toning down the rhetoric. But has there really been any change in the blame game, the finger-pointing? We're Keeping Them Honest. Plus, new insight on what Jared Loughner did in the hours before the shootings. Randi Kaye will retrace his steps.

Scroll down to join the live chat during the program. It's your chance to share your thoughts on tonight's headlines. Keep in mind, you have a better chance of having your comment get past our moderators if you follow our rules.

Here are some of them:

1) Keep it short (we don't have time to read a "book")
2) Don't write in ALL CAPS (there's no need to yell)
3) Use your real name (first name only is fine)
4) No links
5) Watch your language (keep it G-rated; PG at worst - and that includes $#&*)

    Nicole, from that TV show, really should have a permanent place on the list for doing that to her daughter.

    Thank you Anderson & Team 369 for a week of great coverage, a difficult week. Good night as well.

    Good night fellow writers glad for all the touching commentary this week.
    I wish All a safe and peaceful weekend.

    The ridiculist! Love it...but not waxing a child's eyebrows. Or the beauty pagents for such little girls.
    Great commentary Anderson!
    Also, excellent show on Aids before AC360!

    @Nina,
    "both the Democratics and Republicans know how to manipulate."
    Exactly!! What I don't get, is that the People seem to be "OK" with being 'manipulated'! Really mind boggling on both ends.

    That is not ridiculous, it is child abuse.

    @Mike, formerly from Syracuse,
    I was wondering if there was another plan too, for border security. It's not something that's easing, it is? Do you think that it would have been better if they kept working on the fence until they had another idea? Could it have been improved/saved?

    January 14, 2011 at 10:53 pm |

    @Jo Ann,
    I think that the politicians of the past had respect for one another despite their different political stances. I think that they all knew that they were working for the people, that the people were the boss! Times seem to have changed. I wonder if (all) the people feel like they are the boss of the politicians still, or as if they're an audience getting entertained?

    Pee-wee - so sso funny!

    The very look of his face makes me smile. And then he talk. ROFL.

    Just like the Bradley tanks! Yes, it seems to happen often

    And the Republicans say nothing about the spending of the taxpayers' money of almost 1 billion dollars?

    January 14, 2011 at 10:46 pm |
  35. Emily

    Are we going to see you dancing, Anderson?

    January 14, 2011 at 10:46 pm |
  36. Mike, formerly from Syracuse

    OK, so the Administration scraps the fence, so now what? What is their plan to secure the border?

    never saw peewee herman until i was a young adult – i kind of rocked out to "the friendly giant" – they had great music

    is the tequila dance kind of like the chicken dance with booze?
