Remember when the DLC published a “hit list” of vulnerable districts and included crosshairs over Gabrielle Giffords’s Arizona district–and then some time later Sarah Palin published a map doing the same outlining the same vulnerable districts? The media excoriated Palin, blamed her for the Tucson massacre, and completely ignored that Democrats had done it weeks prior, Gawker among them. The online outlet has apparently forgotten their dislike of such lists because they’ve recently published a “hit list” of their own.
Gawker describes it as:

Palin wasn’t advocating marching on private homes. She and the DLC were highlighting districts wherein they could win/lose seats, respectively.
This didn’t register with Gawker at the time, who were purposefully outraged, so much so that they do one better a year later.
