Never mind that the shooter is a Bush-hating, pot smoking, 9/11 troofer.
When Palin, who has seen her level of death threats rise because of this media slander, responded to this outrage, the same liberals and media piled on again. She appeared last night on Sean Hannity's Fox Network program, and set the record straight again, telling these hateful liberals they won't shut her up.
Liberals like Alan Dershowitz, and former New York Mayor Ed Koch defended Palin from these slanderous attacks. What about members of Palin's own party?
Rudy Giuliani, also a former New York mayor, gave a half assed defense of her on See BS' Slay the Nation (Mediate):
Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani appeared on Face the Nation and suggested that in Sarah Palin’s video on the Arizona shooting “she used a wrong word in responding to it, but I can see why she would feel very upset.” Rudy understood why Palin would be “shaken” by the accusations of some to link her to the murders, but implied that some term other than “blood libel” should have been used to express her feelings.Giuliani is thinking about running for President again in 2012. What's up Rudy? Did your liberal side come out just so you could beat up on the girl you might run against for the GOP Presidential nomination?
Newt Gingrich also attacked Sarah today, as he's also thinking about running (fat chance Newt!) in 2012 as well, and since he doesn't have another book to hawk this week, decided to let his inner-liberal come out (Breitbart via Weasel Zippers).
“I think that she has got to slow down and be more careful and think through what she’s saying and how she’s saying it. There is no question that she has become more controversial, but she is still a phenomenon. I don’t know anybody else in American politics who can put something on Twitter or put something on Facebook and automatically have it become a national story,” Gingrich said about his possible 2012 rival. “So she remains, I think, a formidable person in her own right.And last, but not least, is Senator John McLame, because he deserves the most shame.
Don't forget that Palin took a lot of flak from many conservatives for campaigning for the RINO McLame in his primary fight last year against real conservative JD Hayworth for McLame's Senate seat. She did it out of loyalty for the man who selected her as his 2008 running mate.
How did McLame pay Palin back for this loyalty? He called Obama a "patriot" after his pep rally speech and, instead of defending Palin, took digs at her.
I'll always respect John McCain for his military service, and for what he went through as a P.O.W. But his refusal to defend his former running mate is shameful and cowardly, the act of a political weasel.
So let me tell you publicly, John McLame, just how much of a disgrace you are. So are you, Rudy and Newt. Sarah Palin showed America again why she has more balls than the three of you combined, which makes her more qualified to be President than any of you three eunuchs.
