Here's a debunking of a dishonest map someone put out with Palin's graphics and some real assassinations.

This graphic was allegedly presented in an effort to “historicize” Sarah Palin’s crosshair map and “put political assassinations into context.”
But when you look at the breakdown above, out of sixteen incidents (Moscone and Milk were one incident and Fromme and Moore two separate and unrelated events) only eight of them were politically motivated. Of the eight, four were committed by leftists, one had nothing to do with domestic politics and another was part of the Civil War. Only two (three if you count Lincoln) were motivated by right-wing politics.
