11. It's not just Palin
It's the whole Republican party and the way they call their opponents evil, un-American, or whatever. Then, enough of them say the "other side" has to be shot, killed, destroyed by any means necessary. Palin is just the most visible for this particular incident (for good reasons), but the whole beast needs to be challenged.
