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.

    Gospel and R&B singer and civil rights activist Mavis Staples, who has been inspiring fans with gospel-inflected freedom songs like "I'll Take You There" and "March Up Freedom's Highway" and the poignant "Oh What a Feeling" will come to Little Rock for the commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the desegregation of Central High.
  • Klan's president

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
