Answer: The media outlet is ABC news. And yes they did draw that conclusion and publish it. immediately on the heels of Sarah Palin's rebuttal to the endless string attacks that she has weathered for the past four days now.
Sarah's response may have been wordy? But is the woman not entitled to defend herself?
BOTTOM LINE: Sarah Palin, once again, has found a way to become part of the story. And she may well face further criticism for the timing and scope of her remarks. She is already taking heat for her use of the term "blood libel" (see today's Tweets). In her video she notes, “President Obama and I may not agree on everything, but I know he would join me in affirming the health of our democratic process.” It remains to be seen exactly what Obama will say tonight, but White House aides say another goal of his address will be to lift the nation up in this moment, not sully it with politics.
Go to the link and read the entirety of this plum of journalism. The excerpt above comes at the end.
So this is how they play it. All the wailing and gnashing of teeth over spiteful rhetoric be damned. The left doesn't intend to allow any of their publicly excoriated targets to defend themselves either. Certainly not the evil Medusa of the Tea Party that they hate so much (Sarah Palin.)
So the vitriol and the vilification continues, all the while as the left preaches against it and points crooked fingers at their adversaries and continues to try and nail their liberal Jello to the wall.
