    I know what a simile is. Palin didn't use like, as or than to describe the relationship, so it's not one. And similes require some sort of similarity. As I've demonstrated, her message compares in no way to the defintion of blood libel.

    Any insistance that she used the right phrase is just really sad grasping at straws. She used the wrong phrase. It happens to all politicians. Trying to stretch the definition of the phrase to make it fit her message reeks of desperation. She's not perfect. Get over it.

    Well, her being a 'fake' could have been talking in Jewish terms, seeing that some reports that he is Jewish on his mothers side. Just speculating like everyone else. But, I agree he was a really disturbed individual.

    The use of the term "blood libel" was in a WSJ article.

    Followed by:

    To be clear, if you're using this event to criticize the "rhetoric" of Mrs. Palin or others with whom you disagree, then you're either: (a) asserting a connection between the "rhetoric" and the shooting, which based on evidence to date would be what we call a vicious lie; or (b) you're not, in which case you're just seizing on a tragedy to try to score unrelated political points, which is contemptible. Which is it?
