    in that the shooter is likely so distracted from reality he might not even know who Sarah Palin is.  The right wing didn't get so lucky with respect to Dr. George Tiller (or, perhaps from their point of view, they did).  This won't make them criminally liable, or even ethically culpable, but it means they should have stopped the violent rhetoric a long time ago.  Once Sarah Palin made herself into one of the victims of the Tuscon shooting, and even agreed political speech can lead to (if not necessarily 'cause' violence) while defending her own rhetoric, I knew that she was callously indifferent to the real world effects of her actions.
