Guilty of inciting MURDER?

Sarah Palin "targeted" Congressmen and women under the cross hairs of a gun and asked her followers to "take them out"

Gabriel Gifford responded:

We need to realize that the rhetoric, and the firing people up and ... for example, we're on Sarah Palin's targeted list, but the thing is, the way she has it depicted, we're in the cross hairs of a gun sight over our district. When people do that, they've got to realize that there are consequences to that action...

Now Sarah wants you to believe she is not complicit...

Of course Sarah was not asking anyone to commit violence, she was asking for votes, and this incident, for her, was an enormous and inconvenient coincidence...

Or was it?

Perhaps her political tactic to use a gun sight to emphasize the idea of "targeting" certain congressmen and women for "termination" was not only outrageously insensitive and ill conceived, but downright stupid.
Especially when you consider that she was making plans to hunt down and shoot to death a live caribou on national television at the time.

Stupid, stupid, stupid.

She also contends that it was an oversight, leaving up the web pages encouraging people to "target" (complete with images of cross hairs) members of congress, after the election.

Oversight or not?
Either way

Stupid, stupid, stupid.

She claims that it was unforeseeable that there might be people out there who were mentally unstable enough to take the idea seriously...
This comment alone should demonstrate once and for all that this woman is much too ignorant and simple minded to lead or manage anything beyond the complexity of a lemonade stand.

Yes this is a free country, and speech is still relatively free as well, and Sarah Palin is free to illustrate her politics, her tactics and her agenda as she pleases.
However, there is such a thing as going too far.

She shouted "FIRE" in a crowded theater and she should now pay the price, politically, and legally.
