Oh that gun-pun lovin’ Sarah Palin! In post on her Facebook page about 20 upcoming congressional races, she’s made a call to arms for all loyal Americans to

aim for these races and many others. This is just the first salvo in a fight to elect people across the nation who will bring common sense to Washington.

I admire her vim and vigor; enthusiasm is important to get people involved in the political process, and some progressives are equally as disgusted as conservatives, but for different reasons, at the current Congress.

But really, gun sights? Weaponry references? Maybe she wants to rethink that concept– especially with such pointed graphics–in light of the increasing verbal and physical threats against members of Congress and the vandalism at Democratic party offices.
