For the record, we can’t stand Sarah Palin …

We think she’s vapid, clueless, patronizing and totally unfit to hold public office (well … beyond being governor of a state that’s frozen over).

On top of that, we think she’s a whiny bitch – incessantly complaining to the media over perceived slights that make absolutely no difference in the grand scheme of things.

Well, for once, we believe that Sarah Palin’s righteous indignation is well-founded. And for once, it actually does matter in the grand scheme of things.

As liberal politicians and left-wingers in the “lamestream media” callously seek to use last weekend’s tragic Tucson, Arizona shootings as an excuse to infringe upon our First Amendment freedoms, Palin has emerged as the focal point of their efforts.

In fact, some of these talking heads have suggested that Palin bears some sort of direct responsibility for the Tucson massacre because she used “target” imagery during the 2010 election to denote the Congressional district of U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords – the intended target of Saturday’s killing spree that left six dead and fourteen others (including Giffords) wounded.

Ridiculous …

In responding to these attacks for the first time on Wednesday, Palin lashed back at the “media and pundits,” people she accused of manufacturing “a blood libel that serves only to incite the hatred and violence that they purport to condemn.”

Here’s the video Palin uploaded to her Facebook page …

Good for her …

While Palin’s lambasting of the nation’s liberal establishment has historically been histrionic (and harmful to her future political aspirations) … in this case she is correct to call them out.
