What do you do when a watered down health care bill that you disagree with passes? Sarah Palin's Facebook page has a fairly striking map in which she "aims" for House Democrats who sponsored the bill. The point symbols on the map are described by some of her supporters as "surveyor's symbols*" and by most other commentators as "rifle sights", "crosshairs" or with similar language - judge for yourself.
*based on some of the comments on facebook - after all we cartographers use surveyor's symbols all the time - especially to map large areas like Congressional Districts!
