    Re: Sarah Palin accuses critics of "blood libel"

    NationalJournal.com - Obama: 'Our Hopes and Dreams Are Bound Together' - Wednesday, January 12, 2011

    You see, when a tragedy like this strikes, it is part of our nature to demand explanations – to try to impose some order on the chaos, and make sense out of that which seems senseless.

    But at a time when our discourse has become so sharply polarized – at a time when we are far too eager to lay the blame for all that ails the world at the feet of those who think differently than we do – it’s important for us to pause for a moment and make sure that we are talking with each other in a way that heals, not a way that wounds.

    For the truth is that none of us can know exactly what triggered this vicious attack. None of us can know with any certainty what might have stopped those shots from being fired, or what thoughts lurked in the inner recesses of a violent man’s mind.

    Playing victim? Yes of course, being falsely accused by people on the left before even the facts came out is HER fault...

    The fact she took the map down says that she knew that at this time, it isn't appropriate to have up. However, if you want to see the map so bad, please go to her facebook page, it's still there

    when was Palin IN the race for POTUS?
    You have to understand who you're exchanging posts with here.
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    No, there isn't. But that doesn't have any bearing on the fact that she is at least partialy responsible for the "attacks" against her. The attacks against her aren't really that she was an accesory to murder or anything like that. They are about the possible effects of her rhetoric.

    The context which the criticism is being give is unfair, but the criticism itself is deserved. Thus, she ain't a victim.

    Why do you suppose that is? Why was the media, in this case the left wing media, giving her so much coverage following the murders in Tucson?
    Her stupid Tea Party rhetoric is/was believed to have caused the killing.

    Well said, Tucker. I couldn't agree any more.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Lol, after probably like a dozen threads on the shooting, discussing it from every angle, this is the conclusion Solace draws.

    So unfairness becomes fair? How does that even make sense?

    I didn't say that's what I believe, but clearly some people believe that.

    Sorry, when you prefaced TEA party rhetoric with "stupid", I thought that meant you believed it too.
