Quitting as governor, going on a reality show, rabidly reacting to most criticism, etc. has not won any moderates to her cause.

    Palin's strength is to work behind the scenes in helping truly conservative individuals get elected. You hate Palin for what she stands for, but her lean is disclosed....wink wink....

    She's not even smart enough to understand the 'blood libel' reference in her own speech.

    Apparently it went over the OP's head as well.

    My biggest question is where she got it from. You know she didn't put that in her speech by herself.

    The reference had three similarities:

    Both involved blood
    Both seek to demonize to accused
    Both are wholly inaccurate

    Apparently the only people that don't have the mental acuity to understand the parallels are those that are attacking her for the use.
    You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

    You're trying realllllyyy hard for an anology that makes no sense at all. This didn't involve Jews. Or children. Or an excuse to attack people because of their religion. The only way you can even compare the two is if you take such a broad definition of blood libel that the phrase is essentially meaningless.

    That's quite a stretch, though. She could have a number of different terms to describe it. Blood libel refers to a very specific thing and it's not really something that one would use metaphorically. I honestly don't even think it's that she went overboard. I think she didn't fully understand the meaning of the word. It's quite absurd for anyone to attempt to draw parallels between the two.
