...then shut the hell up, you jackass. Sarah Palin, as I'm sure you know, released a video today in response to accusations that she contributed to the shootings in Arizona with her barely-literate rhetoric and gun target map. Quoth SPal:
"If you don’t like a person’s vision for the country, you’re free to debate that vision. If you don’t like their ideas, you’re free to propose better ideas. But especially within hours of a tragedy unfolding, journalists and pundits should not manufacture a blood libel that serves only to incite the very hatred and violence that they purport to condemn. That is reprehensible. Now someone get me a daughter to whore out or an animal to kill.”
Okay, I added that last sentence. Really, I am running out of responses to Sarah and her drivel. Fortunately, I stumbled across a Redditor who goes by the screen name Overtoke; he said it perfectly: "is she responsible? no. is she irresponsible? yes. is she a dumb f*cking [very offensive word even I don't want to write]? yes." Touché, mystery online commenter. Touché.
