I look forward to the national media asking every New Hampshire Democrat and every leading national Democrat to denounce this sort of thing immediately. After all, words matter:

The New Hampshire Republican State Committee today denounced Democrat NH House candidate Keith Halloran’s public death wish for former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin...
In a Facebook post yesterday regarding the tragic plane crash that killed former Alaska Senator Ted Stevens, Halloran wrote, “Just wish Sarah and Levy [sic] were on board." Levi Johnston is the father of Governor Palin’s grandson (RedHampshire, 8/11).

The screenshot is here. The party is calling on the governor and Congressional Candidate Ann McLane Kuster to repudiate the remarks of this Democratic candidate for state house.
