    I TRY to, but your liberal fits over things like this make that hard to do... Sadly, it was liberals who made this an issue in the aftermath of the shooting... She had no choice but to respond...

    I'm not a liberal. Just because I think she's out of her league and an idiot doesn't automatically make me a liberal. I have a staunch republican friend in Idaho that feels the same way about here. When McCain picked her as his running mate he no longer supported McCain.

    Palin is a politician, and she or her handlers SHOULD have know the consequences of using this term. And if they did know, then it was a deliberate anti-Semitic attack period. If they did not know, then they made a serious mistake and should own up to it... but nooo, instead they act like it was everyone else that made an error and try to run from responsibility... yet again. What ever happened to the Conservative motto of people are responsible for their own actions?

    But yet again, Conservatives like the communists and socialists of before 1991 and Muslims of today, flock together to defend her and try to divert attention away by either dismissing it off hand based on "I never heard about it" to out right attacking those that brought it up. Shame on you.

    Yet again a conservative gets a "get out jail free card" by the right on the issue of anti-Semitism. But then again Conservatives seem to get that card constantly on so many issues when their own get caught up in controversy.
    The consequences so far are that a lot of people who hate her are siezing on the term (as if they've known it's biblical meaning for years - doubtful) and accusing her of anti-semitism.

    What would be her motivation to attack Jews? Now or ever? Do you honestly think she and her "handlers" were thinking, "Perfect! The media and bloggers are pinning this on us. Finally! A chance to say "blood libel" and make it look like we're defending ourselves while all the while our followers will know what we really mean! The genocide can begin at last! Nudge nudge wink wink." Devlishly clever.

    Again, which is she? Too stupid to be in politics, or a modern-day Machiavelli?

    Whoever wrote the speech for her...I'm guessing threw it in there to sabotage her...and she, being Palin, didn't know any better.

    Didn't Giffords make this an issue before the shooting?

    That doesn't mean I think that it is Palin's fault. It's not. Sometimes being a maverick means taking a risk. Sometimes it pays off, sometimes it only causes problems. Laughner wasn't motivated by her, but one of these days, some psycho is going to be motivated by some pundit from either side and then that discussion will be a doozie. I see the Charles Barkley "I'm not a role model." commercial making a comeback for that one.

    Even if that happens, it still won't be the fault of the pundit.

    I am a Conservative, though I left the Republican party almost a decade ago because I believe it traded the "Big Tent" for a "Revival Tent". Palin annoys the crap out of me, but even so, the attacks on here in this case have been unfair and she DOES have the right to defend herself... I have defended Obama for some of the unfair attacks that have come at him from the right as well...
