The Palin camp must have been scared initially. They took down the gunsite map, at least for a while. If they didn't think it was wrong, why did they take it down? Anyway, now that she's pretty sure he's not a teabagger, she's all fangs.
The surveyor symbol comment has to be one of the worst cover-your-ass-i-know-its-stupid-but-its-the-best-we've-got-right-now comments ever made by an american politician. I'd put it slightly worse than "I didn't inhale". Though in Palin's defense, I don't think she ever said it herself. It was from one of her minions.
