    Only a conservative can call someone civil for accusing the other side of blood libel. I applaud you for your hardcoreness.

    Re: Sarah Palin accuses critics of "blood libel"

    Having thought about this I agree that the use of this metaphor is a little over the top.

    That said, I am amazed that so many people are so up in arms about it. It's a decent metaphor, though hyperbolic.

    Other phrases are used and we have no problem with it.. for example: "Witch Hunt". When this is used we don't all start shouting about how there weren't any actual witches involved, or feign concern that real witches might somehow be offended.

    I am sure I could come up with a dozen other similar phrases we use as metaphors as opposed to literally.

    I am ambivalent about Palin in general... but I think her video is one of the first reasonable things I have heard so far in the aftermath of this tragedy.

    The article was using the term to describe the way liberals were treating her.

    I read the article, I know how it was used. Essentially the same way she used it. Incorrectly.

    Words only mean something when liberals are busted by them.
