holy shit

the local sheriff says five people have been killed and the Congresswoman and seven others are still alive, although in grave condition, as of this moment, so, grains of salt all around, but still, holy shit, a Congresswoman just got shot

and for extra bonus points, take a look at the fourth name down on this list

The site, unsurprisingly, is now down. USA Today article about it: http://content.usatoday.com/communities/onpolitics/post/2010/09/palin-targets-health-care-law-supporters-on-site/1

LOL? (from http://www.boingboing.net/2011/01/08/congresswoman-gabrie.html)

Is this the worst thing that could have happened to opponents of the healthcare law? Or will it matter?

And will she survive? The headlines no longer match the articles attached.

they've been getting all kinds of conflicting reports about whether or not she's alive. last thing I heard is that she's still alive and when they were wheeling her in, she was still talking. there will be a news conference any minute.

Not sure there's a connection between the Palin site and the shooting, but it wouldn't surprise me. Didn't that site used to have literal bullseyes over the Democrats or something?

Map of right wing attacks in the US

Also, the target list on Sarah Palin's site. (The site itself is down, but here's a direct link to a zip of the entire site: http://www.randomtuesday.com/TakeBack20.zip)

A literal target list, there's a map with crosshairs over the districts of these representatives.

I've said it before, but the Right's media manipulations are totally irresponsible.

According to the hospital, a child and a federal judge were killed in the incident but the doctors are optimistic that Giffords will survive.

A bullet did pass through her brains, though. So, who knows what that will do.

Given what I've seen of the youtube videos, I can't say Palin's irresponsible use of gun analogies has anything to do with this shooting. The fact that Rep Giffords was on her "hit list" looks purely coincidental and she was targeted because she was the easiest person to get to.
