Loughner registered to vote for the first time in 2006, said Chris Roads, Pima County's registrar of voters. He registered as an independent and last voted in the 2008 general election.
While whom Loughner voted for cannot be revealed, the reactionary Right will insist that he was an Obama supporter. That aside, fact remains that the "patriotic" folk at Fox"Nation" have provided a platform for fellow conservatives to distort this information regarding Loughner, and seem to be allowing people to apparently show disappointment that Harry Reid wasn't the victim of Loughner's unchecked rage.
Perhps I'm reading a little too much into this, but the way in which Fox and their easily lead audience are approaching this shows that the conservative/Tea Party message is likely to shift due to what happened this weekend.
