The current political climate in our country is unacceptably hostile and both parties have a hand in the situation (which is why I’m an Independent and super glad), but when you mark a political opponent’s district with cross hairs, and they end up getting shot, you might want to rethink your stuff, whether your name is Sarah Palin or not.

I agree. Instead of getting ticked off at having fingers pointed at them, some people should sit back and consider why people feel that way. Words can have a powerful effect on people, and can be interpreted as something completely different than what the writer/speaker intended, so they should be chosen carefully.
The really sad thing is that when Sarah Palin did this, Gabrielle Giffords expressed concern that the whole way this was done would result in some type of violent response.
Yes she did. No one paid any attention to the warning, and look what happened.
