Sarah Palin Responds To Arizona Shooting And…

| Filed under: PolitikSad SadSarah Palin

Sometimes, people rise above after they've done wrong to admit their fault. This is not one of those moments.

Sarah Palin released a video this morning, responding to the backlash she's been receiving in regards to the Arizona shooting last Saturday. In case you don't know, last year, Sarah released a deplorable graphic on her Facebook page. It was a map of the USA, covered in crosshairs, targeting areas and politicians that supported the new health care reform. One of those names was Gabrielle Giffords, the congresswoman who was shot in the head over the weekend.

No one has proved as of yet that Jared Loughner's attack on the Congresswoman had anything to do with Sarah Palin or the Tea Party movement, but like many others, we called into question Sarah's ease to use violently suggestive images as a means to garner support.

So, Sarah decided to defend herself against the all dreadful liberal media. Not apologize, mind you, for using violent imagery to convey her own agenda - just defend herself from being to blame for the tragedy.

Watch the video (above) to hear her argue her own side. One part we found particularly interesting was this:

”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.”

Hmm. Hypocritical much, Sarah?

Thoughts?

    I don't think that BITCH Palin is to blame for this but She blames everything on the media. first it was the gun sight thing + "Don't retreit, Reload" it isn't presidential behavior. How in the hell does this bitch expect to be the President. The president HAS to take responsability for things and as far as I can tell from day one she HASN'T taken responsability for anything she has done or said, She has just blamed others (usualy the media). Are we really going to elect "Poor" Sarah Palin? the medias scapegoat? NO WE ARN'T. I think she will end up with a show on Fox News and I won't have to see or hear her again

    Blah blah BLAH. STFU bitch.

    Re: LatinaLova – You are a prime example of the "it's my way or the highway" mentality that is damaging this country. Your intolerance and ignorance are appalling and, I'm afraid, representative of the dumbing down of America.



  4. 104

    Why does she sound so fake all the time and she makes me not believe her at all ?

    She scared the crap out of me and I do think that she is pure evil in some way like Glen Beck, Limbaugh and O' Reilly.

    I find the mugshot of the shooter to resemblance Glen Beck if he would be bald.

    The same scary eyes while he talk on his fake program on the Fox News unfair and unbalanced channel.

    I fear for this country, I really do.

  7. 107

    Re: A_Stew – you are not the only person. There is NO connection and people use crosshairs and bullseyes all the time on pictures and it is fine. The facts of this case are that the shooter didn't care who he shot, he just shot. Lunatics do that. Perez is off his rocker on this one.

    Re: AlaskanFlame – The first one that pops up if you google it is-"Blood libel refers to a false accusation or claim that religious minorities, in European contexts almost always Jews, murder children to use their blood in certain aspects of their religious rituals and holidays, Historically, these claims have–alongside those of well poisoning and host desecration–been a major theme in European persecution of Jews."
    "The libels typically allege that Jews require human blood for the baking of matzos for Passover. The accusations often assert that the blood of Christian children is especially coveted, and historically blood libel claims have often been made to account for otherwise unexplained deaths of children….."
    So to a Jewish person this is quite offensive. Gabby Giffords is Jewish and so was Gabe Zimmerman who was murdered that day. I dare you to admit she should have chosen another term. It was thoughtless and ignorant and you oughta know it!



  9. 109

    people , it's a GOSSIP site. what perez puts on HIS site is HIS views. that's the whole point of a blog. if you do not agree with PEREZ's views, then don't go to his site. plain and simple. it's not that difficult. but if your going to critisize him for HIS views on everything he posts, then what does that say about you?



  10. 110

    I cannot believe how stupid some of you people are. Sarah Palin isn't the sharpest tool in the shed, but to even think that she is to blame for a 22 year old insane man go on a shooting spree is absolutely ridiculous! Politics are based on people's opinions, there will NEVER be a time when everyone in this country can agree with certain politics. That's what makes the United States great is we are free to have our own political views. To assume and point the finger and someone who was clearly not responsible for this tragedy is insane! Did she tell him to go on a shooting spree? NO! Did she supply the gun for him? NO! 100% of the blame should be on this sick murderous person! In case you've all forgotten there are A LOT of sick people in this world and this tragedy has proved it! I've been through a school shooting and the blame is on the person who decided to open fire and kill 5 people. So people stop acting so dumb and blaming someone else for shooting people! It's 100% this person's FAULT! HE'S A SICK AND TWISTED INDIVIDUAL!



  11. 111

    She can dish it out but she sure can't take it. She can say whatever she wants, RELOAD and all that crap, but say one word against her and she goes ballistic. What a bitch. Stupid one too. Why insult the President for using a teleprompter and then turn around and use one in this video? The words wouldn't fit on her blood-soaked hand?



  12. 112

    Re: A_Stew – It isn't that he was inspired by this by any way, but how unprofessional it is to do something like what she did in the first place, especially for a political figure. There are constant shootings, so why would you think it would be a good or funny idea to use crosshairs to point out people on a map that you disagree with?



  13. 113

    Perez, you suffer bigtime from PDS - Palin Derangement Syndrome, the biggest affliction by the mainstream media and liberal Democrats. "done wrong" to admit faults??? Is is now against the law in the US to speak your mind, or just for conservatives to speak? Freedom of speech is something folks don't have in Cuba, correct?

    What the heck does unsensitive mean?!?!



  15. 115

    Re: AZRN – Just what wrong did she do? Speak her mind? The DNC published a map with bullseye targets all over it; plays were done about killing Bush; bumper stickers and t-shirts with "Kill Bush" were sold; people hung a dummy of Palin on Halloween–mainstream media didn't care. The AZ shooter by all accounts is a left-wing potsmoker.



  16. 116

    Perez, stick to gossip because your insight (or lack thereof) into politics is ridiculous. For you to join the chorus of besmirching this woman is so laughable. If you want to try to do some real reporting why don't you look into Sheriff Dipshit. Oh wait, he's another commie like you with an agenda. I guess it's always easier to pick on the pretty mother of 5 sticking up for herself instead of the old rotting POS political hack sheriff. Yes Perez, you know all about hyporcrites considering you're one of the worst. Let's ask Rumor Willis, Lindsy Lohan, Jessica Simpson and the many others you've bullied. Too bad Samantha Ronson didn't win her lawsuit against you.



  17. 117

    OH SARAH GIVE IT UP YOU TWAT. YOU ARE THE EPITOME OF HILLBILLY TRAILER TRASH. AND BY THE WAY YOU STUPID BITCH, DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA WHAT BLOOD LIBEL IS? YOU ARE SO STUPID IT HURTS TO LISTEN TO YOU. WHAT THE FUCK WAS THE GOP THINKING WHEN THEY PICKED YOU FOR VP?



  18. 118

    Re: jeanmarie – No reasonable person is saying she is responsible for the shooting. Her tactics of hate and her vocabulary of violence jsut contributes to uncivil discours and is nto productive, if not destructive. Here, once again, it's all about Sarah, portrahying herself as the victim.



  19. 119

    I am not at all into politics, but, I did like Sarah Palin's show.How can any blame Sarah Palin for the Arizona Shooting. The guy was mentally unstable and did this on his own. I don't think that having a crosshair for her politcal tour is any reason at all to blame her or to say that she needs to apologize. Saying she needs to apologize for this is like saying you need to apologize for every celebrity you have ever talked bad about who has died of an overdose. I find myself looking at your site less and less because of stories like this. You should be apologize to Sarah!!!



  20. 120

    Re: supersongbird – I agree that she should have chosen another term. If you study(ied) law, you’re probably familiar with the term “libel“. However, in every day society by definition, the term libel is best described as anything that is defamatory or that maliciously or damagingly misrepresents. The word blood, well, we all know what that means. I think it's fairly obviously that she mis-used the term in her effort to express her feelings of being slandered on an issue that involved the death of innocent people, therefore the term "blood" comes into play here. I could be off-base on my supposition; I'm just trying to look beyond reactionary blather.

    “America must be stronger than the evil we saw displayed last week.” (SP also said that - does anyone debate THAT statement?)



  21. 121

    "We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions." -Ronald Reagan



  22. 122

    Everybody knows Sarah Palin is a dimwit who can't string a complete sentence together without a catch phrase. Whoever her speechwriter is should be fired pronto. I hear the words "Blood Libel" used citing an incident where a Jewish woman was involved and a child died. How's that stupidy, ignoranty, racisty thing going for ya Sarah?



  23. 123

    Sarah Palin might have a brain the size of a peanut, but all this blaming her makes me feel glad I voted Republican for the first time in my life. The extremists have taken over the media and it is dangerous.



  24. 124

    Re: Gushiness – And I will not hold it against her if she did. Good one! I do not care for this lady!

    Peace out,

    127

    YOU'RE AND IDIOT PEREZ! STAY OUT OF ANY THING POLITICS!



  28. 128

    Thank you, Perez!!! I stand by you.

    Sarah Palin, like a vast number of GOP members and tea party members, *incite* hate in an already volatile political climate. Inciting hate, inciting people to "reload" and "take out" our political opponents is precisely what Hitler did. He probably never pulled the trigger, but he incited others to do so.

    Perez, the majority of your readers are too stupid to realize this, and you were spot-on by posting Palin's speechwritten diatribe.

    Good work.



  29. 129

    I don't blame Sarah Palin for what happened in Arizona - they caught the madman who is responsible. However I've gotta say I think it is in EXTREMELY poor taste for her to create a map and attach crosshairs to people's names. Even if this man was not provoked by the map, there's enough crazies in the world who could be. Very bad choice on her part.



  30. 130

    OMFG! Does anyone else see Sarah Palin addressing Americans as if she were the President? Tell me please, what does this half-term quitter governor, a celebrity, not a servant of any people other than her and hers have to do addressing ANYTHING that has to do with our great country?
    .
    You who say she had nothing to do with this carnage are correct to a point, but she had more hate speech than anyone besides the MSNBC crowd and their counterpoints Fox News, and she has a following of rabid white people. It was bound to happen.
    .
    Reload indeed. Fortunately, that freak who did the shooting was stopped before he reloaded. Hopefully someone can do the same to Sarah, in a manner of speaking.

    131

    Why should Palin apologize? If anyone should apologize, it should be the liberal media for blaming her, Republicans, and Conservatives for the shooters' action. The only person to blame is the shooter himself! It's so sickening politics nowadays. Everyone whether it's members of Congress or the citizens of the USA, we should stop bickering and blaming each other, take responsibility and learn to work together. United we stand, divided we fall. We are becoming our own worst enemy.



  32. 132

    Re: ikestarry – Are you really comparing the GOP and tea party to Hitler? I get it you don't like the right, but to making that comparison tells me that you are the stupid one.



  33. 133

    She is such a smug bitch….and literally insane. I am moving if she becomes President.



  34. 134

    Re: Gushiness – You're a fuckin freak if you believe people who like who she is are all racists and filled with hate. I like Sarah because she support gun laws; I will not have my guns taken away, specially with more and more nut jobs killing people off. I want to be able to protect myself, my family, my friends, and even strangers if I HAVE to use it. If they took away our guns, all the WRONG people would have them. I'm not going to be defenseless and not many political people support that. If you're really that fucking ignorant to believe that because of how I feel about Sarah, it makes me racist and filled with hate? Yeah, I do hate your liberal nut case type. A lot of people do.

    Anyways,
    The guy did it, not Sarah. Perez, if a celebrity you fucked with on here committed suicide; I'd assume the blood would be on your hands too then right? That's the same thing. You say Sarah is a hypocrite, well what if this was you? You do a lot and I don't think anyone in this world has the true right to call someone else a hypocrite, that's a title that fits us all.

    Re: www.someonehad2.com – The words 'trust' and 'Obama' don't work in the same sentence to me. But thanks.

    Re: nicky45

    Give me one example, dear, of a Democrat inciting violence and using vitriol against a political opponent. It just doesn't happen. Rather, any Democrat would be ostracized by his or her own party for using this irresponsible and dangerous type of language. MANY GOP leaders and pundits commonly use this inciteful language and are in fact supported by members of their own party, say, Glenn Beck, Bill O'Reilly, Limbaugh, etc. etc. etc.



  37. 137

    Re: devon20 – Yeah most of liberals are fucked up people. Really, really not there in the head. YES I SAID IT YOU DUMB ASSES!



  38. 138

    THIS IS THE END. AFTER THREE YEARS OF COMING TO THIS SITE DAILY AND WATCHING IT DEGRADE EXPONENTIALLY (AND OFTEN BUYING THINGS FROM ADVERTISERS), I AM NEVER GOING TO COME HERE AGAIN. EVER. THE TRAIN WRECK IS GOING TO HAVE TO HAPPEN WITHOUT ME.



  39. 139

    Re: AlaskanFlame – You can dissect it any which way you want-"blood libel" is an anti-semitic term and therefore despicable and uncalled for- especially in the context of Palin's defensive, self-serving response. Quite frankly I dispute just about everything that comes out of her mouth at this point as she is a demagogue of the very worst kind. This gun fetish talk from the tea party has gone way too far-don't you think?
    I am not blaming Palin for the tragedy btw.
    How about this quote: "We can't stand for this violent rhetoric. Sarah Palin put crosshairs over our district. And when someone does that there are consequences to that action." Gabby Giffords-March 25, 2010.

    Re: rickraton – Finally…an honest answer.



  43. 143

    I cracked up laughing as soon as I started reading PHario's nonsense. The part that got me most was his using "Yet". There is nothing linking a politician to a nutcase YET—-but….(We are hopeful?).

    Even that is not original. PHario is simply mimicking what 100 other REAL lefty journos have already said.

    All led by Sheriff "Grandpa Munster" of Pima County.



  44. 144

    While putting targets on a map isn't the best thing ever, she isn't to blame for someone else committing a crime. (and no I'm not a republican writing this.) Unless she hired that man to shoot people in Arizona, she's not guilty of anything but being a republican. Seriously, this country is so quick to assign blame to anyone and everyone. Democrats, excuse me, "liberals" are no more or less accepting of anyone that is different. We focus so much on what is PC and what seems to be acceptance, but what we forget is that we need to embrace those who have different views from us. Am I defended the man in Arizona? Hell no! Do I agree with Sarah Palin? Not at all. But, she has a right to voice her opinion, even if I disagree. It's my job to stand up and push my view point as loudly as she does her own. If anyone had taken Barrack Obama's statement of, "we will take John McCain down in battle" seriously and gone off to shoot McCain, would we blame Obama? Most likely not. As most people hate realizing they are wrong, people are wrong in blaming Sarah for this shooting. You don't have to like her, but seriously, enough is enough.



  45. 145

    And furthermore, hating people who hate you just begets hatred. It isn't solving anything, so just let them hate you as much as they can and by standing up with optimism and hope you will bring them down.



  46. 146

    I see, so it's the criticism of violent rhetoric that's the problem, not the violent rhertoric itself. I'm glad she cleared that up for us
    I wonder who actually wrote Palin's statement. It is far too well worded to have come from Palin herself. The fact that she is more concerned about her image than anything else says it all. She has demonstrated time and again that narcissism is what drives her.
    It is particularly distressing that the shrillest, most violent image rhetoric has come from 3 Republican women.
    Sarah "Reload" Palin, Sharron "2nd Amendment Remedy" Angle, and Michelle "Armed and Dangerous" Bachmann.



  47. 147

    Sarah! Sarah! Sarah! You are soooo predictable - not presidential but predictable!
    The only thing missing at the end of this advertisement is, "This message has been approved by Sarah Palin."
    Spare the U.S.A. & go away Wailin' Palin!



  48. 148

    Regardless, she really shouldn't be throwing around the word "blood libel." It is completely insensitive, and displays either incredible stupidity or sheer racism.



  49. 149

    Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Democrat of Florida, who is a close friend of Ms. Giffords, issued a statement condemning her use of the phrase “blood libel.”

    “Palin’s comments either show a complete ignorance of history, or blatant anti-Semitism,” said Jonathan Beeton, Ms. Wasserman Shultz’s spokesman. “Either way, it shows an appalling lack of sensitivity given Representative Giffords’s faith and the events of the past week.”

    The Anti-Defamation League issued a statement that, in part, came to Ms. Palin’s defense.

    “It was inappropriate at the outset to blame Sarah Palin and others for causing this tragedy or for being an accessory to murder,” Abraham Foxman, the group’s national director, said in a statement. “Palin has every right to defend herself against these kinds of attacks.”

    But Mr. Foxman added that “we wish that Palin had not invoked the phrase ‘blood-libel.’ ” He called it a phrase “fraught with pain in Jewish history.”

    Jeremy Ben-Ami, president of a pro-Israel group called J Street, said that “when Governor Palin learns that many Jews are pained by and take offense at the use of the term, we are sure that she will choose to retract her comment, apologize and make a less inflammatory choice of words.”

    Re: mustbenargles – Would you please quit the "take my guns" shit? Seriously. I'm a gun owner, gun user, hunter, have an NRA membership and have had a license to carry for 12 years. Do you have any idea how large the gun lobby and how far reaching its power is? No one will be taking your guns. Educate yourself, you sound foolish.

    Re: supersongbird – I'm sorry that it's time for me to get off work today, as I've been enjoying a debate with you! It's pleasant to do when you have parties who are calm, who provide reasoned and thought-out (if disagreed upon!) arguments . . . thank you! Have a most pleasant evening! :)

  54. 154

    Re: uyeah – in his defense, it's not just Perez saying it, the reasons she has responded is due to backlash from news stations and newspapers, not because of a celebrity gossip website. He is doing the right thing by showing us this video and educating us. He is entitled to his opinion, and it may not be your own, but he is entitled to it.



  55. 155

    is it hard to just say you should have chose your words better even though it may not have led you the attack in AZ? is it hard to say that politicians have gone crazy and we need to be more humble? its not hard!!



  56. 156

    giffords was a blue dog democrat meaning she is not as liberal and more easily swayed in a sense, the graphic was meant and intended for people to contact her office and almost rally for her to represent their views as a congresswoman should. this is not an unheard of method to "target" certain areas. candidates "target" areas based on the demographics and numbers. blaming sarah palin is itself reprehensible. she would never want or wish for an attack on another human being. he was a sick and deranged man blaming a politician of any party or a political party, is deplorable.
    treat her like heidi and spencer. stop paying attention and she will go away. by giving her this media attention not only does it give her ammunition, but makes you look dumb, the man holding the gun was responsible and anybody directly linked, but an insinuation in his mind or seen through the tv as a message does not i repeat not link sarah palin to any crime. This was a horrible act and by blaming somebody and making excuses for a killer and psychopath is just irritating to say the least



  57. 157

    Re: AttFinch – Hi AttFinch-Add to that Robert Lowry, a GOP candidate who ran against Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D) in Fla. at a rally shot actual bullets at a human shaped target labeled DWS. The tea party is not backing down either-even with these murders only days ago.
    Enough is enough already!

    Re: ikestarry – Are you joking. Have you not heard Obama telling us how he'll bring a gun to a knife fight. How about "punishing your emenies" , or calling Republicans enemies. I could go on and on just read some of the posts. This was too easy, I think I proved my point



  60. 160

    I am not a fan of sarah palin at all and I actually cringe when I see commercials for her show on TLC but really?? how are people even relating this tragic event back to sarah palin? it specifically says No one has proved as of yet that Jared Loughner's attack on the Congresswoman had anything to do with Sarah Palin or the Tea Party movement so why, over one year later, are people trying to bring up this one graphic to blame this on her? This was a tragic event, numerous people were killed, a 9 nine year old girl has has lost her life and this is what people want to argue about?? Not everything is about politics, obama, and sara palin.



  61. 161

    Those FUCKING HYPOCRITES drag Palin into the AZ fray and then cry foul when the woman defends herself and freedom of speech! FINALLY, a woman/president to-be, with CAJONES!

    WE LOVE YOU, SARAH!!!

  65. 165

    BLOOD LIBEL!!!!!!



  66. 166

    First let me say I LOATHE this woman. But whether you like her or not is not the point. Whether this deranged guy was influenced by her or not is not the point. If this was done by any other group before is not the point. The point is that this was a wonderful opportunity chance for a political figure in the public eye to show some scruples and sensitivity, and state in no uncertain terms that ALL OF US need to be more vigilant of what we say. Instead this selfish idiot made it about her and scrambled to take the heat off of her. All she cares about is herself, not the kind of society we are becoming, in which people have no boundaries, scruples or values anymore.



  67. 167

    Ughhhhh I am so fucking sick of Racist homophobic bigots who dont like any positive change in our world to go to a gay mans website and rant!!!!!For fuck sakes just go to fox.com and you can rant all you want there.Am looking at you Palin supporters.



  68. 168

    Whether she is directly responsible may be questionable. But her redneck ways certainly are inspiring to a lot of toothless folks out there. Stop defending her . . . She promotes that lifestyle, and it is not cool. And there is no way in the hell she wrote that. There would be at least a dozen grammatical errors. I can't believe people who have all these so-called "American values" can spit out babies (She was knocked up before she got married.), her daughter spit out one, and still hasn't gotten married, her son was a delinquent who ravaged a schoolbus yard, and then joined the Army, the only branch of the military he would have been able to join as I am sure he had bad grades . . . It is amazing how people can do all the right things, and get nothing . . . Then some stupid idiot like her does all the wrong things and gets everything.



  69. 169

    Re: A_StewYou don't get it, like many Americans. So sad. It doesn't have to have a connection. I had no clue the image existed before. And this isn't a normal graphic, it's a sick graphic that glorifies violence.



  70. 170

    Re: nicky45 A figure of Speech, I can tell that you and all of the people in here would fail any admissions tests now. You aren't smart enough to make appropriate comparisons or cite appropriate material to back your claims. You cannot understand what was wrong with the image, people don't even blame her, they are just disgusted by the image. She also used Blood Libel completely wrong, like an idiot. A famous saying is not that same as any of that, but I am sure on the SAT you would answer it as their being a relation because you are soooo smart.



  71. 171

    Re: A_Stew – She's not being blamed for this… people are just putting to light the fact that she spews hatred. Because the shooting happened, the image she put onto her FB has become well known.



  72. 172

    Re: mscalto – Your comment makes no sense. Of course i cited appropriate material . Are you high or retarded. I never said anyone directly blamed Palin but to insinuate she instigated it and not any democratic rhetoric is dumb. Like you. SAT scores really? are you still in high school? dumbass



  73. 173

    How is it that so many religious people follow her?? She's obviously in league with the devil.



  74. 174

    She tweeted her condolences beside an ad for her latest book - that's reprehensible.

    She published the addresses to each of these 20 people - why whould she do that if she didn't want wackos to go to their homes and harass them?

    Re: Youdontknowjack21578 – Thank you!! OMG Perez should only stick to gossip and everything that's going on in the entertainment industry. He should never ever talk about politics or religion since he only has one view and expects everyone else to have the same view. No other gossip sites brag about their views, they simply stick to fashion and celebrities. Perez, you need to do the same b/c you make it so easy for people to hate you. Although it's too late to quit now since we all know how small minded you are.

    Thoughts? Quit talking out of your butt and quit letting your personal prejudices cloud your judgement. Politicos on both sides have been spewing venom for years but a person has to take responsibility for their own actions. If this was Hilary Clinton or even Saint Obama who had done this, you would have been outraged….shame on you!



  79. 179

    Honestly…I don't think I could torture myself listening to that dingaling for 7:42 minutes..keep it short and sweet…the more you open your mouth the bigger the hole you dig. In second thought, keep rambling, eventually those slow learners were realize how ridiculous you sound!

    Stop defending this lunatic! She is deplorable! Listen, from my experience Americans are HATED around the world, as a Canadian with many American friends I'm constantly defending you guys, people like her make it very hard to continue doing that.
    Take the spotlight off this famewhore and put it on cool women of substance like Hilary.
    She should have taken that map down after Gabrielle did an interview saying that it made her scared and felt like a target. If that guy was stalking her for years than I'm sure he came across that interview and that disgusting map.



  81. 181

    "Deplorable Graphic" "Violently Suggestive Images?????" Seriously? You are very stupid Perez. You dont need to report on anything political because your gay, and it shows. You CANNOT seriously report on politics and not report from a neutral stance. Sarah put up an image that listed people that she doesnt agree with. To pin blame on Sarah Palin is laughable. Perez, you are "deplorable." And if Sarah wasnt threatening to anyone, she wouldnt even be on your radar. She is a great woman and you cannot blame her for this horrific tragedy. Stick with fashion and dying your hair pink Perez, and leave the political commentary to those who are responsible reporters. FAIL!



  82. 182

    i totally agree with you, Perez.
    another thing people haven't brought up is that this video encompasses everything that again and again sabotages the efforts of americans. even Obama is guilty of it. it is the fact that americans are so quick to turn on each other as soon as there is something tragic like this that happens. both Sarah and Obama called the shooter "evil" and Sarah even went on to say that he's deranged. saying that the shooter is crazy and hateful only generates more hate. in prosecuting and hating the shooter, we are dividing the country into 2 groups of "good law-abiding citizens" and "deranged criminals". rather than dividing the people, we should unite and love and care for each other in order to help one another towards a more peaceful future. we are all humans and we should all turn the other cheek. it is always OK to love, but hate always leads to more hate and tragedy.



  83. 183

    YOU are the hypocrite for attacking Sarah Palin about her "crosshairs" graphic and ignoring the fact that the Democratic Leadership Committee did the same exact thing to Palin a couple of years ago—and that TWO DAYS before the Congresswoman was shot, the Daily Kos editor wrote "she is dead to me"–and that the victim herself arranged an event where she could be photographed handling a semi-automatic weapon for campaign purposes. Let's not forget the President himself saying "they'll bring a knife to the fight but we'll bring a gun". Both sides have used hunting metaphors for decades…at this point, it is built into the system. So let those without sin cast the first stone on this issue. And Perez, you are far from "without sin".

    Re: alyssa311 – @ 59 - Diplomacy!, along with a realization that the words you put out into the universe are reverberating and being heard and absorbed by all sorts of people; so a worthy public figure would use words that portray a modicum of statesmanship. All I get from her is combativeness.



  85. 185

    This is what people crave: Leadership.
    Palin has it in spades.
    Same with Christ Christie, Governor of New Jersey, who takes no prisoners.
    Obama has no executive leadership skills whatsoever.
    -
    Bush Derangement Syndrome has been transferred to Palin.
    The Dems show every day, who they are most afraid.
    -
    Someone with a vision that is willing to step up and rally people behind them.
    Say what you want about the ‘Cuda…but she doesn’t stick her finger in the air and check which way the wind blows.
    She speaks her peace according to what she believes.
    That is leadership, Barry.
    -
    BTW. Hey Mitt, Hey Huck, and all you other squishy wanna-beez.
    Most other Republicans would have folded like a lawn chair by now.

    Re: mscalto

    Well said! Nicky45 unsurprisingly can't cite a factual source of any one democrat spewing hate that incites violence on another person, but instead spews insults.

    Enjoy the long, slow downfall of Sarah Palin. She's sealed her own fate on this one.



  87. 187

    while I don't think the shooting is her fault. And putting that aside. She is the poster child of what is wrong about American politics. This whole 'us' vs ' them' or republicans vs democrats talk has got to stop. Seriously grow the fuck up already to all of you especially SP. We all live in the same fucking country and deal with the same fucking shit grow the fuck up work together and stop pointing fingers. If this bitch seriously wanted to do something for America she would have kept her job as governor and done something productive. What productive act does she do now? Nothing, she doesn't volunteer, help the poor, or the environment. Seriously she is the most self serving person, I wish she would just go away enjoy her millions and disappear.



  88. 188

    Re: mscalto – Sorry mscalto but lording your intellect around here will do you no good. A truly intelligent person realizes that there are surrounded by those who they can teach and those who can teach them. For the record, there are a number of very intelligent people of many different ages and education levels who read this blog and comment on it. As far as not being able to fill out an application? Let me know when you get through grad school and we'll talk. By the way, I do agree with you on the blood libel expression. Her speechwriter is probably someone who thinks he or she knows everything. Fail.



  89. 189

    It is completely IRRESPONSIBLE to shift blame to anyone other the that asshole who was fucked in the head and decided to play God with the lives of others. If you've read on on this man, his hatred for Ms. Giffords starts before 2006. . .LONG before the awful photo Sarah Pailin used. . .

    Sarah's actions are awful. . .BUT. . .those are NOT the actions in question. . .

    Be responsible people. . .

    I know it's easy to shift hate to Sarah Pailn right now, but at the end of the day, that's all you're doing. . .shifting HATE!

    WHEN DOES HATE STOP!?!?!?!?!



  90. 190

    I hope the gunman specifically says he used that graphic to make his plans, then she can't slip out of this at all. Hopefully this will put an end to her plans for running for president.



  91. 191

    Despite zero evidence to support the connection between the shooting and Palin it doesn't stop the liberal nitwits to try to make. A disgraceful attempt to silence speech. I am surprised some of these mental midgets havn't ried to blame Bush



  92. 192

    She should apologize for being an Idiot first. Then apologize for being a bad mother. Than apologize for being a manipulative uneducated moron. Then apologize for quitting as governor to get rich off of tv . Then apologize for being a liar. then apologize for using her "special " needs son for propaganda.Then apologize for her face being on my tv everyday. Then apologize for inciting violence and using hunting metaphors like she uses toilet paper. Then apologize for having the pathetic show. Then apologize for selling out the country she says she is protecting. Then apologize to all the idiots that believe the garbage she spouts about. Then apologize for being wrong a lot . Then apologize for not knowing simple geography. Then apologize for having children that she controls. The apologize for using the term "blood libel" without ever asking her writer what it means. Then apologize for even trying to act presidential in this horrible video. Then apologize to all the people affected by this tragedy for trying to gain favor on a day when people need support . Then apologize for wasting hard working peoples money on running for president…. she has NO chance.
    Bristol should run if she runs she might lose weight

    Re: nicky45 – Right on, Nicky!



  94. 194

    you all are idiots! I am in no way a racist and Sarah Palin is better than you'll ever be!



  95. 195

    Gifford's own husband blames Sarah Palin for the attack… Gabriel blamed Sarah Palin when her office was vandalized a year ago when her stupid map first came out. Sarah Palin is a gun toting stupid psycho fucking redneck bitch from Alaska that needs to go away forever.



  96. 196

    Disgusting parasite is what Sarah is. Of course she doesn't accept blame, when has she taken responsibility for ANYTHING?
    Useless piece of human flesh.
    I hope McCain burns in Hades for unleashing this stupid individual on this country and all the idiots that support her white supremist ways.



  97. 197

    Every time Sarah open's her mouth, other than to give a blowjob, stupid comes out.



  98. 198

    For those defending Sarah and her crosshairs photo, Charlie Manson wasn't present at the scene's of the crime either.

    Re: JJ008
    Yeah man go! Well said!



  100. 200

    I'm not putting blame on Sarah Palin but she either needs to get rid of the person in charge of writing for her or write it herself….or just do something.I don't blame her for what happened but she needs to just be careful how she puts sentences together. You can't put crosshairs and start telling people "do not retreat…. reload". It is irresponsible to think for a second that looney people are listening right next to normal folks. If anyone who wasn't well known like she is started saying the things she says they would be arrested. The difference between the crosshairs between 2004 (or whenever) and Sarah Palins are the words that followed….that is the difference. If whoever it was that posted that crosshairs map would have said "Don't retreat…. reload" we wouldn't be talking about her right now…
