SarahPac Called for Ariz. Congresswoman to be 'Targeted' By Lori Price, www.legitgov.org 08 Jan 2011 Sarah Palin's fundraising instrument, SarahPac, had posted an advertisement to target Democratic Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. The photo has since been removed from her website. However, CLG has obtained it and reposted it here. (Photo supplied by Bruce L.)

Instead of pointing fingers so soon after the incident, lets instead focus our hearts and minds on the Congresswoman's fight for her life. There are others who have lost their lives as well, including a judge and an innocent child. This is a deplorable act, a cowardly act, done by a weak minded individual who was easily misguided by rhetoric and hate speech, someone who is of questionable sanity. Gabrielle Giffords seems to be a well liked lady, who conducted herself in a manner that garnered the admiration and friendship of many. This is a sad day, and once the dust is settled, then we can bring the hammer down on who got this particular ball rolling in the twisted mind of this sad piece of flesh that could do such damage.
The map, which has been removed from Palin's page, can still be seen in a posting from last March on the Huffington Post.
In a blog posted today on the Huffington Post, writer Marty Kaplan argued today that the "'lock and load'/'take up your arms' rhetoric of American politics isn't just an overheated metaphor."
Judge Roll in 2009, faced death threats after presiding over a $32 million civil-rights lawsuit. The lawsuit was filed by illegal immigrants against an Arizona rancher. After Judge Roll ruled the case would be certified, threats came from talk-radio shows which fueled controversy and spurred audiences into making threats against the judge.
The threats materialized after one show, Judge Roll's name logged more than 200 phone calls as some callers threatened the judge and his family.
This resulted in the judge and his wife were under a protection detail for one month as Judge Roll was given twenty four hours a day, seven days a week security by the US Marshals Service. An US Attorney's investigation ruled that four men were identified as threat makers, but no charges were filed.

I don't think Sarah Palin is responsible for the congresswoman being shot. But I do think her rhetoric contributes to the attitude of violence in this country. She is sickening.
