Examiner.com: Howard Stern blames Sarah Palin crosshairs map: 'they should lock her up'


Howard SternJanuary 10, 2011- Howard Stern says Sarah Palin's crosshairs map, which featured a gun sight focused over Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords' district, should land the former governor in jail.

Giffords, a House Democrat from Arizona, was shot with 19 others at a constituent meet and greet in Tucson, Arizona Saturday morning.  Since March 2010, Sarah Palin's website has featured a map of the U.S. with 20 gun scopes to represent 20 House Democrats who voted in favor of Obama's health care bill--including Giffords

Howard Stern fumed over the controversy Monday morning, calling Palin "sickening".

"Up on Sarah Palin’s website is a big scope with a gun crosshairs and Gabrielle’s name and ‘go to Arizona and go find her in your crosshairs’ Now come on, I mean, what are we talking about here? This woman wants to be President of the United States? If she becomes President of the United States we’re f---ed. She’s a f---ing loon."

"She’s got a map with people’s names and gun sights," added Stern later. "If I had that they’d arrest me."

The map was removed from Palin's website a few hours after Saturday morning's shooting, but another copy remains posted on her Facebook page.

"She’s a wacko and she’s got a gun sight with this woman’s name on it," said Stern. "They should lock her up."

Palin's PR team recently stated that the crosshairs on Palin's map were meant to represent a surveryor's sight.

"Why would you put a surveyor’s sight? What, are they advocating putting a parking lot?" asked Stern sarcastically. "She is such a liar. They should lock her up for that. I mean, are you f---ing kidding me? Give me a break"

Palin received widespread criticism after posting the map from those who felt it encouraged violence. Representative Giffords spoke about being listed on Palin's targeted website in an eerily prophetic interview with MSNBC last year, during which she said: "When people do that, they've got to realize that there's consequences to that action.".

Giffords remains in critical condition. Six people were killed in Saturday's bloodbath including a federal judge, a church pastor and a 9-year-old girl.
