Sarah Palin's "Cross-Hairs" Map: Much Ado About Nothing

The map on the left is from Sarah Palin's PAC, which designated Democrat-held districts that were targeted by Republican hopefuls.

Now the Democrat propaganda machine is broadcasting the notion that the "cross-hairs" on the map somehow inspired a 22 year old crazy into shooting Democrat Gabrielle Giffords.

Is this map really outlandish?  Does anyone seriously believe it implies or advocates violence?  Even more absurd, does anyone seriously believe that the shooter was motivated by this map?


The Democrats real purpose is to smear Sarah Palin and reduce her political influence through innuendo, character assassination and outright lies.

The Left cannot win in a fair debate of the issues.  They can only win through mind games, propaganda and smear tactics.

UPDATE: It appears that the symbols used on the Palin map are actually surveyor symbols, not rifle scopes.

UPDATE:  The Democrats had their own "target" map before Sarah Palin did.  The map below was used by the Democrat National Committee in the 2004 elections.  Note the bulls eyes on the "targeted" districts.  Also note the use of war-like imagery, i.e. "behind enemy lines."  Such metaphors have long been used in politics and mean absolutely nothing.  Again, Democrat hypocrisy is on full display here.
