Holy bleep! Sarah Palin’s personal political committee previously listed the just-shot US Congresswoman, Gabrielle Giffords, as someone who needed to be taken out! “Don’t retreat, instead- RELOAD!”, was how Palin introduced the map at left. Worse, like all of the 20 politicians listed for their support of the controversial Healthcare reform bill, Giffords’ home region was tagged with rifle cross-hairs, while the three politicians on the list who are retiring are marked in blood red.
“My sincere condolences are offered to the family of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and the other victims of today’s tragic shooting in Arizona. On behalf of Todd and my family, we all pray for the victims and their families, and for peace and justice.”
But Palin’s inflammatory image and words are nothing compared to the gun-crazy campaign rhetoric from Giffords’ former opponent in the November election.
