Down is up

Posted By on Tue, Jan 18, 2011 at 8:42 AM

Sarah Palin took to the friendly confines of Fox News last night to defend her "blood libel" comment regarding the Arizona shootings and the use of crosshairs in campaign materials. TPM has the analysis.

While claiming that no political figure was responsible for influencing alleged shooter Jared Lee Loughner, Palin also claimed he was "perhaps even left-leaning."

Palin also claimed that the video she posted online last week wasn't in self defense, but rather "it was defending those who were falsely accused."

Also of note this morning. The White House is stepping up their defense of health care reform. And Obama's approval numbers are the highest they've been in awhile.

Discuss.
