    I wasn't making an appeal to authority I was just showing the statement he released.

    Re: Sarah Palin accuses critics of "blood libel"

    So Palin decides to release her comments on the same day that the President is making his speech in Tuscon.

    The woman is shameless.

    As I said earlier. I am neither a fan, nor enemy of Palin. I am also a fairly moderate libertarian. My friends on the left who are singing with the current choir are really starting to look BAAAAAAAAAD to me in the aftermath of this event.
    BUt... but... Sarah Palin said it... so it MUST be bad! That's what my liberal friends all tell me, anyway.

    I see, so it wasn't that he said what he said, but rather whom was conducting the interview.... Got it....

    Witch-hunts are more about false accusations in order to paint individuals in a bad light, and even destroy them.

    Whereas blood libel is more about irrational jusitifications which are used for persecuting minority groups.

    This situation is much closer to a witch hunt than blood libel.

    I have doubts regarding the veracity of that quote.

    But even if I didn't have those doubts, having the term "sanctioned" by a Jewish guy from Harvard doesn't mean that the word is automatically accurate.

    Palin and her colleagues are not being persecuted, no matter how much they want to be seen carrying crosses.

    As I said earlier. I am neither a fan, nor enemy of Palin. I am also a fairly moderate libertarian. My friends on the left who are singing with the current choir are really starting to look BAAAAAAAAAD to me in the aftermath of this event.
    I'm an anti-federalist and I'm admittedly not a fan of Palin. Mostly don't care about her, but I do wish she'd stop talking nonsense.
