The hypocrisy of Sarah Palin. What is good for the goose should be good for the gander. But apparantly, Sarah Palin has to lower expectations and insult the Jews in order to save her own hide. I can’t say that I am surprised. You could say “well Chris, what else is new, you should have seen this coming”, and I probably could. Any genious should have looked up what “Blood Libel” means before it came out of her mouth but then again, Sarah Palin is rouge, and likes to shoot from the hip and does not need any advisors. She writes her own rules, and is playing her own game. As usual with Sarah Palin, you have to appreciate the irony.
Now onto Barack Obama; as horrific as this tragedy is he found a way to turn it into one of his best speeches ever. I don’t question the sincerity of the President, and to be completely honest, if I were in the position that he is in I would do the same. Not that pundits are not jumping on this fine opportunity, but it is hard to do so when Sarah Palin already paved the way for you. If there was ever a bird in the hand, Barack Obama surely had two in the bush. But is this fine moment in American politics, although on the back of one of the worst tragedies in recent years, enough to restore the faith that the American public has in their President?
