The state-run leftist media is determined to take Sarah Palin down after the tragedy in Tucson this past weekend. The democrat-media complex wants to pin the shootings on Palin and the tea party despite that fact that the young leftist killer had been targeting Rep. Gabrielle Giffords since 2007.
Here’s the latest on Yahoo:
They won’t be happy until she’s dead and gone.
Within an hour of Saturday’s tragic shooting in Arizona, the Twittersphere had quickly seized on a map put out by Sarah Palin’s political action committee last year that had gun-sight images over the congressional districts of House Democrats she wanted to win for the GOP in 2010.

Among her targets: Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona, who was critically wounded by a gunman Saturday. His motives, authorities say, are not fully known. But friends of the suspect, Jared Loughner, have suggested that he had held a grudge for at least three years against Giffords dating back to when he met her in 2007.
Still, some believe that incendiary rhetoric like Palin’s bears some responsibility in the tragedy. Giffords herself had previously raised concerns about Palin’s map: “The way that she has it depicted has the cross hairs of a gun sight over our district. When people do that, they have got to realize there are consequences to that action.”
On Sunday,the Senate’s No. 2 Democrat, Dick Durbin, cited the Palin map as a sign of the “toxic rhetoric” that has come to define national politics in recent years. He said he was not making a direct connection between Palin and the shootings.
As Franklin Graham said, the left is inciting hatred.
