Sarah Palin Facebook: Step the Fuck Up

On the tragedy in Arizona
by Sarah Palin on Saturday, January 8, 2011 at 3:02pm

My sincere condolences are offered to the family of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and the other victims of today's tragic shooting in Arizona.

On behalf of Todd and my family, we all pray for the victims and their families, and for peace and justice.

- Sarah Palin


I'm a "follower" of hers on Facebook, and I responded:

Ms. Palin, if you feel so sorry for victims of a shooting, then please -- in the future -- stop talking about putting people in your "crosshairs." (As you specifically did with Gabrielle Giffords in the election held just a few weeks ago.) However symbolic your talk, there sometimes really ARE consequences. I grew up in the country, in Texas, with a gun-shooting father. I'm not PC at all. That said: You need to watch what you say. You need to elevate yourself rather than catering to the lowest common denominator.
