AZ Congresswoman Shot today was targeted in Sarah Palin's "Crosshairs" Ad.

(FROM CNN) -- A federal judge was killed and a congresswoman gravely wounded Saturday in a shooting outside of a Tucson, Arizona, grocery store, according to police and government officials.

In all, six people died and 12 were wounded in the shooting, including U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-Arizona, according to Rick Kastigar, bureau chief for the Pima County Sheriff's Department.

President Barack Obama later said Chief Judge John Roll of the U.S. District Court for Arizona was among the dead.

A 9-year-old girl also died in the attack, according to authorities. The child, whose identity had not been released, was pronounced dead at a hospital.
Last year Representative Giffords was  one of a number of  Democratic members of  Congress  who were  targeted  with rifle scope crosshairs graphics in an ad  from  Sarah Palin's  political action committee.

Palin and her  Teabagger Nutjob followers  have used  violent rhetoric  non-stop for the past two years.  Talking  of "second amendment solutions" to political questions.   Now the seeds that  Palin and her ilk have planted  are sprouting.

Make no mistake  the GOP and and  the Tebagging lunatics it has spawned  have BLOOD ON THEIR HANDS TODAY.
