Violent Imagery in America - Part IX

If you win a Pulitzer Prize, that makes all your opinions correct, right?

"Mission accomplished, Sarah Palin."
- DailyKos founder Markos Moulitsas

So, is the following related?
"An aide close to Sarah Palin says death threats and security threats have increased to an unprecedented level since the shooting in Arizona, and the former Alaska governor’s team has been talking to security professionals.

Since the shooting in Tucson, Palin has taken much heat for her “crosshairs” map that targeted 20 congressional Democrats in the 2010 midterm election, including Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, who was the main target of Saturday’s attack."

  1. In 2004, the Democratic National Committee distributed a very similar map with bullseyes on Republicans considered vulnerable.

    Hmm, I wonder why that hasn't been talked about?
