Gun Out Of Control Redux

“Sarah Palin has the crosshairs of a gun sight over our district and when people do that, they’ve gotta realize there are consequences to that action.” – Rep. Gabrielle Giffords

Ms. Palin “targeted” Rep. Gabriele Giffords in her ads — now scrubbed from her site. Her office was vandalized and her father has said the “whole Tea Party” was her enemy. Within a week the ugly seeds of the GOP and NRA bears more vile fruit. “Second Amendment Solutions” huh? Maybe America will stop feeding. And Palin’s career is officially over.

UPDATE: Team Palin has stated these are not “crosshairs” at all. Except Palin’s tweet counters truth — as usual:

  1. “And Palin’s career is officially over.”? Dare we hope?

  2. Dunno, I think her running for anything is a blessing. (Unless she somehow wins, of course. Then we’re fucked beyond belief.) Look what O’Donnell did for Coons in Delaware.

    Obama may essentially be a moderate Republican, but better that than a stupid wacko extreme Republican.

      America’s right-wing is spinning itself into a lather. Check out the usually dim Chris Matthews confront a Tea Party founder and his asinine responses:

  3. i’ve already shot my mouth off re: this topic at the hotbog so i won’t rehash, except to say i really feel for all those of you who are sane and reasonable having to ponder such violence and stupidity in your own country, i wish i could wave my magic wand and make it all better. maybe and here’s hoping this latest tragedy will be a catalyst to better communication and cooperation between those with opposing ideologies rather than violence begetting violence.

  4. “i really feel for all those of you who are sane and reasonable having to ponder such violence and stupidity in your own country…”

    When did we become a country that inspires pity rather than envy? (That’s a rhetorical question, because I know the answer: around eleven years ago.)

  5. We may shoot each other at the drop of a hat, but at least we don’t put beets on our hamburgers!

  6. touché fb (fwiw i hate beets, or beetroot as it’s so gag-inducingly called here, blech)

    what a pity obama can’t just be an epic hard-ass and seize on gun control as his defining moment as pres, but i know that’ll never happen. the NRA is like al capone, untouchable. a little tax evasion wouldn’t go astray, when in doubt bring in the IRS for the takedown… somebody somewhere must be screwing uncle sam out of his cut.

    • I wish he would. It’s the right moment. But the NRA is powerful indeed and Americans collectively have an instinctual gag reflex at gun control.
