As Rush Limbaugh is always pleased to note, words have meaning. Sarah Palin has used the phrase, “don’t retreat, reload.” Her Tea Party-affiliated fanatics were urged to “target” US Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and others during last year’s election season with propaganda displaying a cross-hair over her Congressional district.

Congresswoman Giffords was shot in the face today by a 22-year old man. There are reports that a political diatribe by him has been found on YouTube. Is anyone surprised?
