How have we gotten (back) to a place where assassination is an answer to those who believe things we don’t? How have we gotten to a place where a national figure can put an image up on her website that shows a gun-sight’s crosshairs over the politicians she opposes … and then take that image down when one of those politicians is shot and say she’s praying for “peace and justice”?
Sarah Palin took down her website that had gun crosshairs on Rep Gabrielle Giffords, but here’s a screenshot. UPDATE: The crosshairs map was only taken down from one site. At last check (4pm) it was still up on Palin’s FB page.
So angry and sad right now. As Rebecca Walker just tweeted: “I feel so badly for our country, for us. Who will serve? Who will want to serve?”
