In a speech in Reno last weekend, Ex-Governor Sarah Palin said she thinks a recent media boycott of her is a good thing. . .because she won't be "blamed" for the uprising in Egypt.
Palin, of course, became a flash point during the national debate following the Tucson, Arizona shootings earlier this month. Many people (and the criticism was bi-partisan) accused her of fanning the flames of intolerance, and some even said she was the catalyst for the Arizona murders/assassination attempt.
Ex-governor Palin said that the boycott on writing about her "sounds good, because there's a lot of chaos in Cairo, and I can't wait to not get blamed for it--at least for a month."Citizens and media--old and new-- discussed her use of the phrase "don't retreat, reload!" and her use of targets (which her office called surveyor's symbols) on a map of congressional seats. She took the bait and struck back with her ridiculous and now infamous "blood libel" video. She appears to not want to get herself mangled in the wringer one more time in January.
