Great stuff (you can get to the video on her Facebook page). I don’t think I’ve seen this better said.
Naturally, the Left has started targeting Palin (and targeting is the right word) for her use of the phrase “blood libel”, although the phrase is quite appropriate.
Politico was the first to mention it, using the phrase in their headline. The Hill was next. In their piece, they quote Rep. James Clyburn (D-SC), who naturally, decides to go into the gutter [emphasis mine]:
“You know, Sarah Palin just can’t seem to get it, on any front. I think she’s an attractive person, she is articulate. But I think intellectually, she seems not to be able to understand what’s going on here.”
It’s quite obvious Palin, intellectually, gets it. I’m sure that Clyburn, intellectually, gets it. But Clyburn is so hung up on exploiting this tragedy for his and his party’s political advantage that he is compelled and reduced to fling insults at Palin.
This will be added to the Left’s “narrative”, as was done by Taegan Goddard, just wait and see.
President Obama is set to speak later today in Tuscon. I hope he summons up enough good sense to leave the politics completely out of his speech. Unlike Palin, nobody has accused him of being even partly responsible for the recent tragedy.
