We can only hope that some good emerges from this tragedy and that Palin stops being quite as astonishingly insensitive in her choice of language.
The BNP use equally inflammatory language. Check out Nick Griffin's post-count speech at the last election. Sarah Palin is just more mainstream.
Maybe we aren't so used to it over here, but the right to free speech is taken very seriously over the pond. Also, on inspection, the cross hairs cover a state, not a picture of the unfortunate politician. I think this is a case of unfortunate co-incidence for Palin, as opposed to her being the cause of it. Accusations of her being the cause of it will strengthen her own position; the blindest simpleton could figure out that this catastrophe wasn't her fault, and will subsequently see the wave of criticism flying towards her from the left as herself, and free-speech, being unfairly and unduly assaulted.
Let the crazy bitch speak, I say. The more she does, the more she'll discredit herself. And asking her to tone down her opinions is silly, as she realises that their "revolutionary" essence is key to her own popularity. As this is the case, who can blame her for what she says? The onus is on politicians of a different persuasion to discredit her views. They're failing at this miserably.
