Blood Libel

You have to ask yourself what was Sarah Palin thinking when she invoked "Blood Libel" against the media in it's treatment of her in the wake of last weeks shootings in Tucson? If she thought it would provoke an unflattering response on the part of the media, she wasn't thinking too clearly.

All the media players have to do is play the clip of her saying it, over and over again, while letting her, ever so slowly, twist in the wind.

I'm not saying it's not a little embarrassing to watch, because it is and most of the embarrassment has to do with the realization of the sick fascination that something like this engenders in all of us. That doesn't really do her any good though, does it?

Palin is being accused of being an accessory to mass murder. If that is not a blood libel, then nothing is. The Jewish lawyer and Harvard professor, Alan Dershowitz, agrees with Palin.
