We hardly think we can be accused of gay blog hyperbole here by saying that Sarah Palin has blood on her hands today after Democratic Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords was shot in the head while speaking at a Tuscon, Arizona grocery store. 11 other people were shot and injured in the attack.rhetoric, sarah palin crosshairs, targets map

The incident is easily linked to Sarah Palin’s posting images of Rep. Giffords’ name and location in crosshairs on her Takebackthe20 website, which encourages Tea Party members to get rid of Democratic elected officials in Republican districts. Palin is no stranger to riling up gun-crazy Tea Party members. She famously tweeted, “Commonsense Conservatives and lovers of America: “Don’t Retreat, Instead – RELOAD!”sarah palin open beak comments

Well Ms. Palin, someone has. Rep. Giffords is currently undergoing emergency surgery for a gunshot wound to her head after you put her in your crosshairs and demanded your followers to “RELOAD” and “prescribe the solution”.

*Update: Palin’s camp have taken down the Takebackthe20 page. The Facebook page for the group remains up.
