    Should try something new in case the next president lies just to get into office. Like manditory monthly impeachments where the president must prove they deserve their job next month. (even during marshall law) With auto-summons anytime if enough people protest specifying they wish to invoke this.

    Re: Sarah Palin accuses critics of "blood libel"

    I just can't believe the media is now lynching Palin for using the term "blood libel". I for one feel gypped. They are on a witch hunt, and acting completely hysterically. I mean, seriously... can't these cretins in the media think of someone else to pick on? One minute they ask for us to tone down the rhetoric, the next the start it all back up again. Indian-givers!

    Really I think if you are obsessed with PC garbage you should try a different hobby.

    Alan Dershowitz defending Sarah Palin's use of blood libel? I'm shocked.

    Yes, that was used originally when falsely accusing a religious minority but in modern times it's been used in a broader basis. The term wasn't invented to define what happened to the Jews; it’s just that what happened to Jews were "blood libels", and this term fits perfectly to what happened to Governor Palin.

    I'll list some examples:

    Andrew Cohen of CBS News, May 7, 2008: “So-called “judicial activism” occurs, in other words, when it’s your side that lost the case and it is nothing short of a BLOOD LIBEL against judges to accuse them of operating by fiat.”

    AP, July 28, 2008: “Just before Obama spoke, Newsday editor Les Payne had called “BLOOD LIBEL” the argument that African-American journalists could not objectively cover Obama’s candidacy.”

    Alex Beam in the Boston Globe, January 14, 2005, discussing the accusation that an official had used the “n-word” in meetings overseas: “My two anonymous sources were making charges that amounted to ‘BLOOD LIBEL’ against former colleagues; that raised the bar for ethical publication.”

    the term is more common then you think...
    Wow. Three, now four times in the last five years. Clearly a hot phrase.

    It's slang Kelzie. Don't you use it all the time? I do! Specially around the time I have to hang out with fishmonger and scalawags. People start throwing accusations of blood libel at me.

    Our news is just one giant smokescreen that will rip your focus away from the most important thing your taxes go to. The War. Have fun getting a glimpse of some celebs panties once a year.

    Stop, just stop....It wouldn't matter if we showed you a thousand uses for the phrase, you'd still stubbornly stick to your attack against Palin, because you harbor hatred in your heart for her. That much is clear. So just accept your defeat and move on.

    Either you have no sense of humor, or I am bad at jokes. I imagine its the second.
