As someone on the liberal side, I never blamed Sarah Palin for the horrible attack and deaths in Tuscon. But I must say that after years of listening to lock and reload, 2nd amendment remedies, President Obama is not really an American, President Obama is a secret Muslim, President Obama has death panels to kill old people, President Obama is a Nazi, President Obama is a Socialist etc etc etc from the Right, I am pleased to hear from Sarah and hopefully the Right Wing pundits like her that she believes words have consequences and can be dangerous. It is sad that she only realized this when it was she that was on the receiving end and not dishing it out. America’s memory is not so short as to forget the last several years. I hope that both sides can have reasonable discussions about their differences now.
