Readers may remember this little bit of American conservative eliminationism, from Sarah Palin’s PAC site. She invited Americans to “take aim” at twenty members of Congress who had supported Barack Obama’s health care legislation.
Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords was one of three incumbents targeted in Arizona. She has just been shot in the head.
Bravo, Sarah. Another notch.*

*Early reports of her death were unfounded. Her prognosis is, after hours of surgery, reported as good. I would imagine that recovery will be slow and rough, though.
