Ev'r hear of the term figure of speech? I mean politics is warfare through other means. Hence the terminology.
It is war in a sense but it means killing your opponent politically. I mean Sarah is a hunter too.
Yeah, there's no problem with the violent imagery at all. It shouldn't bother anyone right? I mean what kind of hypersensitive person would object to having their name on a list with gunsightings symbolically linked to them?
Crazy people, right?:
Ms. Giffords was also among a group of Democratic House candidates featured on the Web site of Sarah Palin’s political action committee with cross hairs over their districts, a fact that disturbed Ms. Giffords at the time.
“We’re on Sarah Palin’s targeted list,” Ms. Giffords said last March. “But the thing is the way that she has it depicted has the cross hairs of a gun sight over our district. When people do that, they’ve got to realize there’s consequences to that.”
The image is no longer on the Web site, and Ms. Palin posted a statement saying “my sincere condolences are offered to the family of Representative Gabrielle Giffords and the other victims of today’s tragic shooting in Arizona. On behalf of Todd and my family, we all pray for the victims and their families, and for peace and justice.” (Late Saturday, the map was still on Ms. Palin’s Facebook page.)
Go ahead and tell us again how there's nothing to it.
