Just as a reminder of the chronology of events:
On the very day of the shootings:
...Keith Olbermann sought to tether this tragedy to a political agenda, attaching the madness of this shooting to Sarah Palin, Sharon Angle, Glenn Beck, and a host of other right-leaning figures.
"If Sarah Palin, whose website put and today scrubbed bulls-eye targets on 20 representatives, including Gabby Giffords does not repudiate her own part - however tangential in amplifying violence and violent imagery in American politics - she must be dismissed from politics," Olbermann said. "She must be repudiated by the members of her own party. And if they fail to do so, each one of them must be judged to have silently defended this tactic that today proved so awfully foretelling."

Palin made her statement. Her statement was in response to the one above, and others that were similar. She didn't come out of the blue with a statement.
On this thread, it was not I who brought up her name the first time.
