Well, there’s not much we can do about that. Fine; but before we move on why not take a look at just two more maps?
The above map appeared on the website of the Democratic Leadership Committee back in 2004. Please make note of the use of the word “enemy” to refer to Republicans, as well as the phrase “ripe targets for Democrats.” You’ve already notice that on this map there are no surveyor’s marks. What you have are bull’s-eyes. Yup … bull’s-eyes. Clearly the type of bull’s eyes you would use for a target for shooting purposes. Ahhh .. but these are Republicans being “targeted” by Democrats. So, no harm, no foul.Now .. another map:
This map was posted on the website of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee about a year ago. Do you see any surveyor’s marks or anything that could be mistaken for surveyor’s marks? Nope. But what DO we see? Looks to me like there are some bull’s-eyes there. Targets, pure and simple, plus a map legend that said the bull’s eyes represented “targeted Republicans.” You need to know that this week Democrat Congressman Chris Van Hollen was quick to make an appearance on MSNBC with Chris (of the tingly leg) Matthews to condemn the Palin Map. He said that it was really dangerous to try to make your point in that particular way. Christ Van Hollen was the leader of the DCCC when the above map was placed on their website.
Of course none of this makes any difference whatsoever to those of the leftist persuasion who are determined to seize on this tragedy for political gain. You, though, now see how phony, not to mention hypocritical, this “Palin’s Map” nonsense is.
