  •  Lousy politics. (7+ / 0-)

    Making herself a victim ahead of a memorial for the victims of a mass shooting, invoking an antisemitic term to do so, and digging in her stilletos is not good politics.

      Not just twisted: sprained.

    •  Anti-semitism? (0+ / 0-)

      Where do people get that?

      Even Alan Dershowitz is defending her. (You do realize he is a famous lefty, lawyer, and Jewish)

      From AD: The term "blood libel" has taken on a broad metaphorical meaning in public discourse. Although its historical origins were in theologically based false accusations against the Jews and the Jewish People, its current usage is far broader. I myself have used it to describe false accusations against the State of Israel by the Goldstone Report. There is nothing improper and certainly nothing anti-Semitic in Sarah Palin using the term to characterize what she reasonably believes are false accusations that her words or images may have caused a mentally disturbed individual to kill and maim. The fact that two of the victims are Jewish is utterly irrelevant to the propriety of using this widely used term.
