Sarah Palin's FB page has been quickly scrubbed clean of the posting with Rep. Gabrielle Giffords in the cross hairs of a rifle.
The wingnuts will spin this as "he was really a Liberal!", "an isolated incident", "both sides do it" (they don't), "he was a Liberal plant to make us look bad" and the ever popular "George Soros!!!!1!".
Reason #456 why I am no longer a Republican. Not because crazy people are crazy, but the denial that the crazy Teabaggers rhetoric helped push this along. Rep. Giffords office was vandalized after she voted for the Health Care Insurance Reform. A vote to protect you from being denied coverage for a pre-existing condition. A vote to keep your kids covered until they can get it on their own. A vote to protect your best interests, oh gentle middle class member.
And no, I don't want to take your guns away. And I'm not giving mine up, either. For once, stop the spin and admit that violent speech against political figures helped get us here.
Just own it, for once.
