Palin Speaks Out, Says Nothing

The Killa from Wasilla was on the Slanthead Hannity show (yeah, there's a real hard-hitting "journalist" for you) trying to defend her use of the emotionally-freighted politically-loaded phrase "Blood Libel".

Here's what she said:

Speaking out for the first time since she used the term in a video, Palin said on Fox's SeanHannity show that the term referred to those "falsely accused of having blood on their hands."Some Jewish groups strongly protested her use of the term, which historically was used to accuse Jews of using blood of Christians in religious rituals."I think the critics again were using anything that they could gather out of that statement," she said. "You can spin up anything out of anybody's statements that are released and use them against the person who is making the statement."Palin, a potential Republican presidential candidate in 2012, said the criticism won't stop her from speaking out and accusing Democrats of taking the country in the wrong direction."They can't make us sit down and shut up," she said.

Oh brother. Yeah, Caribou Barbie, your sacrifices were right up with the deaths of six million Jews in WWII, with hundreds of thousand of Jews who were physically tortured, forcibly converted to Catholicism, and then wantonly murdered.

Oh, the humanity...
