Threats are threats, from either side.

WTMA reported:
An aide close to Sarah Palin says death threats and security threats have increased to an unprecedented level since the shooting in Arizona, and the former Alaska governor’s team has been talking to security professionals. Since the shooting in Tucson, Palin has taken much heat for her “crosshairs” map that targeted 20 congressional Democrats in the 2010 midterm election, including Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, who was the main target of Saturday’s attack.
So let me get this straight. Sarah Palin posts a map with crosshairs on it and she is a bad person because of this rather mild, yet undefined "threat" that only a certifiable nutjob would interpret as instructions and that everyone else should "tsk-tsk" and ignore. The appropriate response, according to the unwashed masses, is to send her death threats of their own? A vague threat warrants a specific one? In what universe are you all living?

Come on, people. Try to maintain logic and reason here.
