You don't have permission to access /topic/The talk in political circles has been that Sarah Palin had a rare opportunity in the wake of the Tucson tragedy to reach out beyond her base and recalibrate her image beyond that of a gun-toting mama grizzly.After all, the strategists said, there was some sympathy for herâ€”beyond the Palin-hatersâ€”for being tied to the shooting of Gabrielle Giffords, even if she had erred with her â€œreloadâ€ talk and by posting that map with the gun-sight targets last year.Instead, Palin chose to throw kerosene on the embers of a smoldering national controversy.â€œEspecially within hours of a tragedy unfolding,â€ Palin said in a video on her Facebook page, â€œjournalists and pundits should not manufacture a blood libel that serves only to incite the very hatred and violence they purport to condemn. That is reprehensible.â€Blood libel, for those who are not familiar, describes a false accusation that minoritiesâ€”usually Jewsâ€”murder children to use their blood in religious rituals, and has been a historical theme in the persecution of the Jewish people.Had Palin scoured a thesaurus, she could not have come up with a more inflammatory phrase.As someone who has argued that linking her rhetoric to the hateful violence of Jared Loughner is unfair, I can imagine that the former governor was angry about how liberal detractors dragged her into this story. But after days of silence, she had a chance to speak to the country in a calmer, more inclusive way. She could have said that all of us, including her, needed to avoid excessively harsh or military-style language, without retreating one inch from her strongly held beliefs.Instead she went the blood libel route....

Everything works for me at the moment, including the Contact Us link. I am, however, now getting that error I pasted in my last post when clicking on an external link.
