Sarah Palin's Responsibility: "We Are On Sarah Palin's Targeted List"

There are unconfirmed reports that Sarah Palin is busily scrubbing her websites of incriminating posts, tweets, graphics. Hardly the actions of one who does not feel guilt and responsibility; or is it just shameless CYA? In an interview to MSNBC following passage of the healthcare law, Rep. Giffords noted the CROSSHAIRS graphic (below) on Sarah Palin's PAC page, with this haunting comment:
“We are on Sarah Palin's targeted list. The way that she has it depicted has the crosshairs of the gunsight over our district. When people do that, they have got to realize there are consequences to that action.”
 This graphic has been removed as of yesterday from Sarah Palin's PAC site:

Palin aide Rebecca Mansour has been frantically backpedalling in defense of her story with the absurd claim that the crosshairs were "never ever, ever intended to be gun sights. It was simply crosshairs like you'd see on maps." The radio interviewer added helpfully they could, in fact, be seen as "surveyor's symbols." Mansour has to be incredibly disingenous if "it never occurred to us that anybody would consider it violent."

Oh really? Then how to explain these tweets from your boss, Ms. Mansour? It does not matter how many tweets you end up deleting; the internet "trail" once posted cannot be "shredded" like all copies of a paper trail.

Here Palin urges her followers, using GUN terminology to "RELOAD"— that is exactly what Jared Lee Loughner was trying to do but for a brave woman who prevented him from reloading. Otherwise the death count would have been higher.

And in this tweet Sarah Palin refers to her "BULLSEYE" icon "used 2 target ... incumbent seats." Palin's defenders are actually saying on her Facebook page that the "TARGET" was the "incumbent seats." Do you really think a demented gun-toting assassin will make such subtle distinctions, Ms. Mansour?:
