I didn't see the sign when it was up on her site. In fact, I didn't know the site or sign existed because I don't do a lot of searches for Sarah Palin's political wisdom. But how on earth can a person justify a sign like that! And now she has a message of condolence on her site for the tragedy. What did she expect? Or worse, is this what she expected and hoped for? And how does that sign not fall under the hypersensitive "terrorist" branding of late?

If this had been a school shooting, the student who put up the Web page with the crosshairs would be in custody now.

I find myself being hypocritical here, does he deserve to die, my first instinct is yes, but I don't know why he did it. Is he insane, probably.

You're absolutely right! The same kind of people that want to blame drug use on athletes and suicide on Judas Priest are awfully quiet about Palin's culpability in this tragedy.

...and worse, in some cases actively denying it and using the "moral equivalency" argument. One of Palin's press people apparently went so far over the weekend as to lie outright and say "oh, those weren't crosshairs--they were surveyor's marks."

Yeah, because "don't retreat--reload" is so obviously a reference to surveying.

So then this thread is an example of helpful rhetoric?

Alrighty then.

Perfect.
