Last week, Rep. Anthony Weiner called out Sarah Palin for using violent language on Twitter to rally her supporters, saying that some people may take her call for violence literally. Well, Palin, most famous for her upcoming reality TV show, certainly wasn't going to let some East Coast hopey changemonster tell her what to do!
She retaliated with a Facebook message to all the NCAA teams playing in March Madness. It's filled with gun imagery cheeky italics for your convenience. "In the battle, set your sights on next season’s targets! From the shot across the bow - the first second’s tip-off - your leaders will be in the enemy’s crosshairs, so you must execute strong defensive tactics." Uffda!
The title of her note is "Warning: Subject to New Politically Correct Language Police Censorship," suggesting that she is responding to Weiner's criticism. He had previously said about her violent language, "What might seem as an obvious metaphor for some people may seem like an invitation for someone else." The condemnation came after a white powder incident in his Kew Gardens office, where he received a threatening letter related to his vote on health care. No word yet on a Weiner Facebook retaliation involving the upcoming baseball season. [Via Daily News]
