Sarah Palin has found her way in to hot water once again. As many people know, Democrat representative Gabrielle Giffords was shot and killed during what is being called a targeted rampage.

Although NPR has now said they’ve received conflicting reports about her death, it’s been confirmed that Giffords has been shot. So how does Sarah Palin fit in to this picture?

Several media outlets and politically focused bloggers have accused Sarah Palin of putting a “bullseye” on Giffords. “Obviously people are talking about a possible political motive, and one thing people are pointing to is Sarah Palin’s ‘hit list,’ the list of 20 politicians that she targeted with rifle-sights on a website last year” reports the Business Insider. And on that list? Congresswoman Giffords.

It’s really easy for people to place some blame on Palin for stirring the political pot, but to say that it was Palin’s fault that this happened really isn’t fair either. What do you think?
