Wonder if the Speaker of the House isn’t relieved that Tucson didn’t happen in Cincinati. The once Alaska governor is feeling some heat. She should be. Our own president is also stained for suggesting the one-upmanship of gun over knife. A public comment from him would be helpful, though I doubt it will be forthcoming.
Even one prominent Republican was calling out her friend months ago on gun targets over America. She was right to do so, and people are right to do so today, even as Ms Palin protests against
blood double dog dare libel.
Message to politicians: be very cautious here. The point is to extract one’s foot from one’s mouth, not see if you can gag on your own calf.
