Well..that's part of Palin's political MO and has been since Wasilla. She's confrontational, picks fights, and only has a fair sense of play when it pertains to her. She whines up a storm when she feels that anyone is "picking" on her yet she doesn't hold herself to the same standards that she expects from others.

OK--apparently the site itself was taken down, but it still remains in her notes on her FB page.

Sarah set Glenn Beck the following e-mail. He read it on his show.

"I hate violence. I hate war. Our children will not have peace if politicos just capitalize on this to succeed in portraying anyone as inciting terror and violence. Thanks for all you do to send the message of truth and love. And God has the answer. - Sarah"

Sarah Palin E-Mails Glenn Beck On 2010 Ad That Put 'Crosshairs' On Gabrielle Giffords' District - ABC News

She hates war? If she were president, I believe she'd wanna nuke every country on planet earth, with the exception of Israel. As for her hating violence, well, I'll leave that up to the reader to decide.

Glenn Beck sends a message of truth and love. WOW!

Palin has encouraged crazy behavior for years now through heated and irrational rhetoric. Anybody with some common sense understands that there are plenty of unhinged types with itchy trigger fingers in this country that can easily be swayed by such ridiculousness. Instead they let it fester as this type of hysteria was an integral part of Palin's political personality. People like Palin, make outrageous claims about "Socialists", Democrats who hate America, terrorist ties, the Constitution being under attack etc, and then make references to addressing these problems with guns. You can't spew out this garbage and lace it with an undertone of uprising against a "tyrannical government", without somebody taking that message to the next level. The Congress woman had over 40 threats during the health care debate, something that was advocated and exacerbated by people like Palin. Am I saying this guy was a 'bagger or Republican? No, but I am saying that these 'bagger types like Palin have been putting a message out there that was irresponsible (especially understanding the influence one could have with a powerful national public persona), and that ultimately proved to be deadly.

There is plenty of that kind of rhetoric on both sides of the aisle. Many of the more "sensitive" people on the left just don't like to be criticized so over-interpret any of this kind of metaphorical language. As Met pointed out...the Dems used the same bulls eye type map in 2004. Anything involving guns seems to bring out the "sensitiveness" in people.

Big deal.

We just need to keep going back to free speech.

The Climate of Krugman - HUMAN EVENTS
There is not a SINGLE Rightie who has contested Krugman's FACTS in his NYT column today. All they have on offer are ad hominem responses, silly in the extreme.

Marty et al are once again covering up for their side. There was NOTHING of the kind of climate that prevailed after Obama got elected in 2008 during Dubya's reign. Nothing, nada. Any kind of equivalence is plain dishonesty. Bull's eyes in and of themselves don't lead to violence. They are just one piece in the environment of violent rhetoric ginned up by extreme elements on the Right.
