"media personality Sarah Palin" — thank you for that accurate and complete description.

This also comes up quite often in videogame reviews and commentary for obvious reasons. Weirdly I believe "reticule" is the more popular term for it there.

There's also graticule, which is both the grid of lines on a map, or a synonym for reticle.

I wonder if Palin or her spokeswoman has ever looked through a surveyors transit? It's been a few years since I used one, and I've never used a gun (with or w/o a sight), so I can't say how they compare.
