Sarah Palin is an utterly irresponsible and despicable human being!
...[Sarah Palin] has the crosshairs of a gunsight over our district. When people do that, they've got to realize there's consequences to that action. ~ Congresswoman Giffords
Rep. James P. Moran Jr. (D-Va.), said Sunday Gabrielle Giffords told him just a week and a half ago that she was worried about the potential for violence back home:
Gabby did tell me that she was concerned. She did say it's really bad out there, particularly in a district like [hers]. She was very much troubled that Sarah Palin put her in the crosshairs.Pima County Sheriff, Clarence Dupnik from Democracy Now 01-11-2011:
In my judgment, people who are mentally unstable are very susceptible to the kind of rhetoric that’s going on in our country. And I think that we all have a responsibility to take a look at that. I think it’s sad, the state that America has become, where we have a political system that, in my judgment, is totally broken. And anger plays a large role in the things that are going on. And there are people who play to the anger in our people and who encourage it.On Geraldo:
When you have people like Sharron Angle in Las Vegas running against Harry Reid making outrageous statements such as ‘we may need to resort to taking the 2nd amendment into certain cases’ and for people like Sarah Palin to say ‘we have people like Gabby Giffords in our crossairs’, I think those statements are totally irresponsible and they’re not without consequences and I think we may be seeing the fruit of it here. ~ Sheriff Dupnik
