Donuel, Even if Palin passively accepted her followers screaming hate, even if she had not encouraged them, her denial that she encouraged her followers to violent action is ingenuous. It is possible that, for the sake of popularity with her voters, she allowed the to scream and rage in murderous ways. If she were truly leading them away from violence, she would reasonably have said something simple, like "These threats of violence are not in the true spirit of American political discourse."

Of course, she or her followers may have had problems with the big words.
