Mrs. Big Shot

Think I'm being too harsh on Mrs. Palin in today's comic? Not on your fucking teabag. Yes, there are other prominent Republicans noted for their "Second Amendment remedy" blather but dear Sarah has presidential aspirations so she has the pleasure of being held to MUCH stricter standards.

In case you've been under a rock the past few days check out this image which used to grace the Sarapac web site (A page her handlers have removed since Saturday) showing gunsights over various Democratic districts, representative Gabrielle Gifford's being one of them.


Subtle, huh? Ms. Giffords was, sadly enough, gunned down this past Saturday by a right-wing retard with an illegal Glock.

And how about this Tweet by Mrs. Palin shortly before the 2010 mid-terms:

sarah palin tweet

And, yes, I know full well what my cartoon might be subtly suggesting but Sarah is in no physical danger whatsoever as only Democrats die at the hands of political asassins in this country. (Squeaky Fromme never fired a shot at President Ford. John Hinckley, Jr. shot Reagan for purely personal reasons.)

Finally, I'd like to point out that I don't generally create cartoons featuring Mrs. Palin as

(1) It's much too easy a target and

(2) The less said of her, the better.

But this time I just had to point out that her foolish words have repercussions, one of which was a 9-year-old girl.



And now a few Tweets on the subject of the attack on Ms. Giffords, starting with the best:

If a Detroit Muslim put a map on the web with crosshairs on 20 pols, then 1 of them got shot, where would he be sitting right now? Just asking. - Michael Moore

A physician cannot treat an illness s/he willfully refuses to diagnose. Violent political rhetoric is not fault of "both sides." - Tom Tomorrow

Inspiring that our media pundits are so quick to reach for "everyone's to blame" when no conservative events have been terrorized by gunmen. -  Jeffrey Feldman

Weird: rightwingers say movies, video games affect behavior -- but real world violent rhetoric from leaders & radio talkers have NO impact! - Tom Tomorrow

Jared Lougnner: drug arrests, too crazy for Army or for college or anythign else, but getting a legal gun? No problem. - Tom Tomorrow

I find it abhorrent that Sarah Palin would stoke the coals of extremism with dangerous messaging, then delete it when something bad happens. - Jason Pollock

Sure, Sarah Palin didn't pull the trigger. But then, neither did Charles Manson. - auntbeast

Christina Taylor Green was Born on September 11, 2001, and killed today by terrorist fuckheads in Arizona. Irony much? - geeksofdoom

Sarah Palin rummages online frantically erasing her rabble-rousing Tweets like a Stalinist trimming non-persons out of photos. - Roger Ebert

I'll say this, if your first instinct after hearing about a tragedy is to scrub yr websites, you have a problem as a political movement. - digby56

CNN's Dana Bash says "this could be a wake-up call." THIS ... ? The whole Tea Party, carrying guns to rallies WASN'T?? - hololio2

Teaparty asses have been asking for this to happen, and how they're pissed off that we're calling them out on it. - TLW3

STOP SAYING"BOTH PARTIES"!! The Left has not been advocating Violence. @CNN assholes. - YatPundit

From Raging Pencils

If you meet Sarah Palin, please don't slap her. And certainly don't slap her as hard as you can with a closed fist. Or while you're holding something sharp and rusty, because that might cause her irreparable damage and long-term suffering.

And most of all, and I mean this sincerely, please do not misuse the Second Amendment by approaching Sarah Palin in a crowd and shooting her in the head with a Glock 19, because that's not what civilized people do. Thank you.
