When Did Sarah Palin Say ‘Put Him Against the Wall and Shoot Him’?

 Oh, wait. Excuse me. It wasn’t Sarah Palin who said that:

On October 23, The Scranton Times reported that Rep. Paul Kanjorski, D-Pa., said this about Florida’s new Republican Governor Rick Scott:
“That Scott down there that’s running for governor of Florida,” Mr. Kanjorski said. “Instead of running for governor of Florida, they ought to have him and shoot him. Put him against the wall and shoot him. He stole billions of dollars from the United States government and he’s running for governor of Florida. He’s a millionaire and a billionaire. He’s no hero. He’s a damn crook. It’s just we don’t prosecute big crooks.”

I don’t remember a media firestorm erupting after Kanjorski engaged in this vitriolic rhetoric,” says Nice Deb.
