Sarah Palin Does NOT Use the Blood of Children to Bake her Matzohs for Passover
Caribou Barbie crawled out of her bunker this morning with an 8-minute Facebook video. Here's part of what she said.
Vigorous and spirited public debates during elections are among our most cherished traditions. And after the election, we shake hands and get back to work, and often both sides find common ground back in D.C. and elsewhere. If you don’t like a person’s vision for the country, you’re free to debate that vision. If you don’t like their ideas, you’re free to propose better ideas. But, especially within hours of a tragedy unfolding, journalists and pundits should not manufacture a blood libel that serves only to incite the very hatred and violence they purport to condemn. That is reprehensible.
Now, all I got from this video is "what happened in Tucson is everyone's fault but mine." It's like I've been saying all along, no apology for using the graphic on her webby that included crosshairs on Gabrielle Giffords' district — even though she scrubbed her site of that graphic before the blood could dry on the pavement outside the Safeway store and she sent out one of her spokesidiots to claim that those weren't crosshairs anyway, but were surveyor symbols. Signs of a guilty conscience? That would assume Palin HAS a conscience.
Do I hold Caribou Barbie personally responsible for Jared Lee Loughner shooting up that Tucson parking lot. Nah. Do I think Caribou Barbie has contributed to a political climate that makes this kind of massacre not only possible but likely?
Oh, yeah! She's right up there with Limbaugh and Beck and Hannity and O'Reilly and the Blond Robots on Fox News in carrying the blame for THAT. For THAT aspect of this tragedy, her hands are DRIPPING with the blood of innocents. And, since the Huffington Post reports that the sales of Glocks have gone through the roof, I fear there will be MORE blood spattered on Caribou Barbie's pretty little flag lapel.
However, I would just like to go on record to say that if there is one thing that I don't think Sarah Palin is guilty of, it's "Blood Libel."
What, exactly, IS "blood libel"?
