(Newser) – Might Sarah Palin be softening her rhetoric after all? Politico thinks so, noting what she urged a group in Arizona last night: "Don't retreat, stand tall." It's a switch from her "Don't retreat, reload" line that—along with the crosshairs map—drew all kinds of criticism in the wake of the Gabrielle Giffords shooting. For more about the speech, which was closed to the public, see the Reno Gazette-Journal.
