Sarah Palin is pretty well-known for the absolute nonsense that comes from her mouth on a regular basis, but what she just said on her Facebook page is probably her most disgusting statement yet.
In the post, Palin compared the media whirlwind around the shooting of Arizona representative, Gabby Giffords, to her own personal strife from media attacks regarding her PAC’s tasteless use of targets in their images. Palin was trying to convey that the media is a powerful entity with enough strength to break a person, but by the time she finally said that, she had already come off as a pompous whiner. An excerpt from the ramble goes as follows:
“Another epitome in media double standards, in my opinion: A schizophrenic shoots an Arizona representative and the media goes berserk blaming me for the crime. That year’s SarahPAC electoral map had included a “target” icon, and media erroneously claimed it somehow spurred on the criminal.”
“The attack on the Arizona politician and innocent bystanders was beyond horrific, and many of us continue to lift up in prayer those who are affected by any unwarranted violence, as the nation witnessed that day in Tucson. Also unwarranted is the blame game liberals capitalized on then, as they continue to do today.”
Even though the attacks aimed at Palin were extremely warranted, she could see no connection to the image her PAC released featuring a target directly over Gabrielle Giffords’ state of Arizona. Image seen below:
To Palin, it doesn’t matter that the classy thing to do would have been to apologize for the use of targets in her PAC’s images. In her eyes, she is still the most amazing thing to ever grace the Republican party. She continued her Facebook rant by saying:
“The apoplectic media pinning me for the crime caused turmoil and threats that are inexplicable, stretching still to this day. I say this not to claim any sort of victimization, but to point out the power the media has to try to destroy someone’s career, reputation and spirit, by employing its common double standards.”
Poor, poor Sarah Palin. Always being scrutinized by logical liberals who just wish she would make some sense or sit down. However, Mrs. Palin, in no way are you able to compare yourself to Giffords, whom underwent a medical hell you couldn’t even wrap your privileged mind around.
Probably the most infuriating part of the entire post is the serious stretch of the truth that comes in the end, when Palin says:
“This morning on MSNBC the liberal media once again features their “target” icon in their political graphics. And all is well in the lamestream media. Let’s hear it for consistency…”
The truly insane part about all that is, she is talking about a wall of screens used as a backdrop on CNN’s set. Her image was displayed on those screens, causing what appears to be a cross on her face. In no way does it resemble the crosshairs of a target.
