"Sarah Palin, Blood Libels, And More News From Arizona" - Republished From BigCityLib

The following post appeared originally on the blogsite of BigCityLib. It is well stated and bang on. I want to make sure that as many people as possible read it .. hence I am reposting it here"

Sarah Palin, Blood Libels, And More News From Arizona

1) The Teabaggers are turning on moderate Republicans down in Arizona:

A nasty battle between factions of Legislative District 20 Republicans and fears that it could turn violent in the wake of what happened in Tucson on Saturday prompted District Chairman Anthony Miller and several others to resign.

Miller, a 43-year-old Ahwatukee Foothills resident and former campaign worker for U.S. Sen. John McCain, was re-elected to a second one-year term last month. He said constant verbal attacks after that election and Internet blog posts by some local members with Tea Party ties made him worry about his family's safety.

2) Sarah Palin's use of the term "blood libel" to describe the criticisms levelled at her in the wake of the Tuscon shooting is crazy, of course. One theory is that she found this crimson bauble of a word in an earlier column by Glen Reynolds and used it without knowing the meaning. Another is that she first intended to claim that she was being subjected to a "witch hunt", but didn't want to offend fellow Republican Christine O'Donnel.

3) All this outrage from American Conservatives/teabaggers is a desperate feint. If Sarah Palin didn't at some level perceive her own measure of responsibility for this tragedy, she wouldn't have pulled that gun-site graphic from her Facebook page; she wouldn't have had one of her aides make the ridiculous claim that the symbols weren't rifle sites but surveyor's marks. If Glenn Beck didn't at some level perceive his own measure of responsibility, he wouldn't have scrubbed that image of him looking like a middle-aged, over-weight James Bond wannabe--holding, of course, a handgun--from his website.

They know.


Gawd damned right they know! And so does every other lying bastard who has decided to raise the angry volume of their voices (as usual) and try and bully a defense for Palin!
