Sarah Palin Camp Caught in Lie on Bullseye—Not Tageting Just ‘Surveying,’ They Say

Sarah Palin’s camp is in full retreat mode, and is now caught in a lie.

Adviser to Ms. Palin, Rebecca Mansour, says the cross-hairs placed on Rep. Giffords’ district (and 19 others’) are “surveyors symbols.”

But Palin’s recent Twitter (at left) tells another story, referencing the “‘bullseye’ icon used 2 target the 20 Obamacare-lovin’ incumbent seats … .”

“I don’t understand how anybody can be held responsible for somebody who is completely mentally unstable like this,” an adviser to Ms. Palin, Rebecca Mansour, said in an interview with a conservative radio host, Tammy Bruce. Responding to accusatory messages on the Web, Ms. Mansour added: “People actually accuse Governor Palin of this. It’s appalling — appalling. I can’t actually express how disgusting that is.”

Ms. Mansour said that the cross hairs, in fact, were not meant to be an allusion to guns, and agreed with her interviewer’s reference to them as “surveyors symbols.” Aides to Ms. Palin did not respond to interview requests on Sunday. [Zeleny, Rutenberg; NYT]

Looks like Palin is also shocked, shocked to find that “Giffords’ Tea Party-backed opponent, Jesse Kelly, held a machine-gun-themed campaign event, whose invitation said, “Get On Target For Victory in November. Help remove Gabrielle Giffords from office. Shoot a fully automatic M16 with Jesse Kelly.” Maybe those were surveyors’ tools and not machine guns. (Goldberg, TAP)

Or Glenn Beck’s allusion to guns:

On his radio show in October, for example, [Beck] speculated that the government might seize his children because he’s refusing to give them the flu vaccine. ‘You want to take my kids because of that?’ he said. ‘Meet Mr. Smith and Mr. Wesson.’  (Goldberg, TAP)

Maybe Smith and Wesson makes surveyers’ tools as well.
