In March 2010 Palin started a “Take Back the 20” website, featuring a U.S. map targeting--with bullseyes--20 Democratic House members, including Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. In one of her tweets Palin urged her supporters, “Don’t Retreat, Instead – RELOAD!” and she even made the phrase a part of her campaign trail repertoire.
The site was taken down in the wake of Saturday’s attacks. It wasn’t until something like the Arizona tragedy took place before someone in the Palin camp thought it was a good idea to take this stupid and perhaps even dangerous site down from the internet.
I checked Sarah Palin's official website (not the take back website) today, out of curiosity, to see if she left any comment with regard to what happened to the Democatic Senator Gabrielle Giffords. And this is what I read TODAY:
"On The Tragedy in Arizona"
My sincere condolences are offered to the family of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and the other victims of today's tragic shooting in Arizona.
