    Ken Adelman, former adviser to Reagan, once stated that he had never even considered voting for a Democrat his whole life, but that when Mccain selected Palin for Vice President he was strongly considering voting for Obama.

    Re: Sarah Palin accuses critics of "blood libel"

    CNN's John King is attracting a lot of notice -- and some ridicule -- in the blogosphere for his on-air apology after a guest used the word "crosshairs" during a report on Chicago politics Tuesday. (The guest, a former Chicago reporter, referred to two rivals of mayoral candidate Rahm Emanuel, saying Emanuel is "in both of their crosshairs.") "We were just having a discussion about the Chicago mayoral race," King told viewers. "My friend Andy Shaw…used the term 'in the crosshairs' in talking about the candidates out there. We're trying, we're trying to get away from that language. Andy is a good friend, he's covered politics for a long time, but we're trying to get away from using that kind of language. We won't always be perfect, so hold us accountable when we don't meet your standards."

    King's statement comes after widespread discussion of whether Sarah Palin's now-infamous "crosshairs" map targeting vulnerable Democratic candidates in last November's elections somehow caused the shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords in Tucson January 8. There has been plenty of that kind of speculation on CNN, including on Tuesday, the day of John King's statement, when one brief discussion of Palin used the word "crosshairs" five times.

    A look at transcripts of CNN programs in the month leading up to the shootings shows that the network was filled with references to "crosshairs" -- and once even used the term to suggest the targeting of Palin herself. Some examples:

    "Palin's moose-hunting episode on her reality show enraged People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, and now, she's square in the crosshairs of big time Hollywood producer, Aaron Sorkin," reported A.J. Hammer of CNN's Headline News on December 8.

    "Companies like MasterCard are in the crosshairs for cutting ties with WikiLeaks," said CNN Kiran Chetry in a December 9 report.

    "Thousands of people living in areas that are in the crosshairs have been told to evacuate," Chetry said in a December 21 report on flooding in California.

    "He's in their crosshairs," said a guest in a December 21 CNN discussion of suspects in a missing-person case.

    "This will be the first time your food will be actually in the crosshairs of the FDA," business reporter Christine Romans said on December 22.

    "The U.S. commander in the East has Haqqani in his crosshairs," CNN's Barbara Starr reported on December 28, referring to an Afghan warlord.

    "We know that health care reform is in the crosshairs again," CNN's Joe Johns reported on January 3.

    Seven uses of "crosshairs" in just the month before the Tucson attacks, and just one of them referring to an actual wartime situation. And one reference to Sarah Palin herself as being in "crosshairs."

    And not just Palin. On September 14, Mark Preston, CNN's senior political editor, referred to another controversial politician, Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann, as being "in the crosshairs." "Michelle Bachmann is raising lots of money, raising her national profile," Preston said on September 14. "She is in the crosshairs of Democrats as well."

    D00d and leave the other crap out, you sound like your touched with that nonsense.
    Oh please...Rev....your little Miss Martyr has been nothing BUT whoring herself for the past 3 years.

    The garbage that she has put all around this great country as done nothing but lower a significant portion of the US Population to her slimey level.

    Defend herself? Please...it was just another opportunity for her to whore herself out some more. She actually had a great opportunity to open up a good political discourse like Obama did....and instead where he actually shined for once....she showed herself only more as a media whore.

    You big man, refering to a woman as "whoring her self out" on the internets.... Galantry is your strong suit isn't it, chief...

    Mine? I'm not a Palin fan. Sorry chief, wrong number.



    The garbage that she has put all around this great country as done nothing but lower a significant portion of the US Population to her slimey level.

    You sound hysterical DD, why are you so upset at a former VP canidate? it's creepy dood. I find your level, btw, quite slimier..... Many would agree...


    Defend herself? Please...it was just another opportunity for her to whore herself out some more. She actually had a great opportunity to open up a good political discourse like Obama did....and instead where he actually shined for once....she showed herself only more as a media whore.
    Oh yes, the prostrate Obama, call Palin "whorin herself out" post..... You really sound like you contribute substance dood...


    If posts on Palin weren't such a funny joke, no one would respond to them....

    Absolutely. There is no better candidate to lead the GOP than Sarah Palin. The GOP would be fools if they don't nominate her in 2012.
