…UPDATE IV: Chief Edwards did not identify the shooter. We have the report of the temple official that the gunman was a white male in his 30s, and the fact that the FBI is investigating the crime as “a domestic terrorist incident,” as Chief Edwards called it, would seem to narrow down the motive a good bit.

There are reports that some people on Twitter are in a hurry to blame this crime on Republicans, as if “let’s go kill some Sikhs” were a plank in the GOP platform, and as if the murder of innocents had no meaning except as an opportunity to play politics.

UPDATE V: Statement from Mitt Romney:

“Ann and I extend our thoughts and prayers to the victims of today’s shooting in Wisconsin. This was a senseless act of violence and a tragedy that should never befall any house of worship. Our hearts are with the victims, their families, and the entire Oak Creek Sikh community. We join Americans everywhere in mourning those who lost their lives and in prayer for healing in the difficult days ahead.”

So, apparently, shooting innocent Sikhs is not endorsed by Republicans. This news may be a traumatic shock to certain liberals on Twitter, who are in need of psychological counseling.

UPDATE VI: The superior power of Liberal Logic™ enables Twitter users to identify the suspect: Michele Bachmann did it!

Why didn’t the FBI figure this out first? It was so obvious, when Bachmann ran for president with the slogan, “Go Shoot Some Sikhs.”

UPDATE VII: Here’s an important clue:

CUDAHY, Wis. — WISN 12 News has learned that police and FBI agents descended upon a Cudahy neighborhood late Sunday afternoon.
Crews report a police presence in the 3700 block of East Holmes Avenue near Packard Avenue.
Officials are not yet commenting on the situation in Cudahy or what may have prompted the police and FBI response.

We have no evidence that Michele Bachmann recently moved to Cudahy, but according to Liberal Logic™ that doesn’t mean it’s not her fault…

…Permit me to restate the obvious: We don’t yet know who the shooter was. We don’t know his motive, or his political affiliations….

…It would not be necessary to state something so obvious, were it not for the fact that those endowed with Liberal Logic™ keep telling us they know exactly what inspired this crime: Michele Bachmann called for an investigation of reports that the Muslim Brotherhood is influencing State Department policy and therefore — as a direct result of Bachmann’s investigation — this guy went on a shooting spree at a Sikh Temple…

Cable news networks covering the shooting at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin emphasized to their viewers that Sikhs are not Muslims, a confusion CNN described as unfair.  Sometimes-violent anti-Muslim sentiment is pretty much taken for granted at this point.
