Tenuous Connections Matter, Except When They Concern Me

January 15th, 2011

Palin on why a Sufi group wishing to build a community center on private land had everything to do with a mass murder:

This is a place which is 600 feet from where almost 3,000 people were torn to pieces by Islamic extremists. I think that it is incredibly insensitive and audacious really for them to build a mosque, not only on that site, but to do it specifically so that they could be in proximity to where that atrocity happened.

Six months later, Palin on why her own violent imagery had nothing to do with a mass murder:

Acts of monstrous criminality stand on their own. They begin and end with the criminals who commit them.

Hmm. Something doesn’t compute here, but somehow I can’t put my finger on it. Must be my imagination.

    Hopefully we’ll be seeing the end of Sara Pallin as someone taken seriously in the public debate. She’s done enough damage already, perhaps hitting her low water mark with a frontal assault on end of life counseling by referring to it as “death panels”.

    Best to view Palin as a carnival barker. And a mad one at that.

    She’s not going away, and there’s nobody on the right that’s any better.

    It would have been better for her to have won the nomination than someone with less negatives.
