Sarah Palin: The Official Left-Wing Panty Buncher

Last September, Glenn Reynolds linked Shannon Love’s post, Palin and the Left’s Status-Anxiety where that blogress observed:

The left’s obsession with Sarah Palin is one of the most interesting political and social phenomena of our time. The degree and volume of venom directed at her staggers the imagination. It is unprecedented in recent times especially for someone who does not currently hold office.

I saved the link for a post on how Sarah Palin merely by opening her mouth causes a number of lefties to bunch up their panties.  This weekend, we learned, she doesn’t even need open her mouth for that to cause certain left-wing pundits to get their panties all in a bunch.  Some left-wing pundits were blaming her for the Arizona shooting before she had even offered her opinion on the horrific act.

As Blogress Diva Regent neoneocon put it,

What the left has done to Sarah Palin has been disgusting right from the start. But the accusation that she is responsible for the Tucson killings might just be a new low.

It seems Palin-haters have been heading toward this low for some time.  This sage blogress also defend Palin from the attacks against her for her use of the expression blood libel in her video message on the shooting and its aftermath.  (Read both posts.)

Wondering again at the power the former Alaska Governor has over various left-of-center pundits, bloggers and elected officials.

UPDATE:  In a similar vein, Glenn Reynolds quips, “She’s living in their heads, rent-free, 24-7.

  1. Whew! Now we are down to a distinction without a difference and a distinction with a difference or a distinction that is not a distinction.

    “In light of the tragedy” is the qualifier. So, Palin is “guilty” automatically of anything she should have done, could have done or would have done by virtue of having been caught in the light of the tragedy.

    In light of the tragedy, Palin is guilty until she proves herself innocent in the eyes of those whose view is illuminated by the light of the tragedy.

    She did not attend the memorial pep rally which she should have done “in light of the tragedy.”

    She did not cancel her NRA membership, which she should have done “in light of the tragedy.”

    She did not grant an interview with Katie Couric, which she should have done “in light of the tragedy.”

    This is not to say that there is no reason for sensitivity after a tragedy. If Palin were to react coldly, sarcastically, capriciously, mockingly to what happened in Tucson, she should certainly be rebuked.

    In light of the need of leftists to smack Palin just one more time, I will cease and desist.

  2. Hi NDT,
    “Actually, it was because that post nicely showed the bigoted and partisan nature of Politifact in choosing its “lie of the year”.

    Personally, given the fact that Politifact seemingly didn’t care one whit about the Obama Party’s assertion that the Republican plan was to “die quickly”, I think we can see that their interest in the health care debate was little more than being typical attack drones for the Obama Party.”

    Sorry, I have no idea how this relates to the evidence I presented. If at some point you wish to address that issue (i.e., the one I raised in response to your initial assertions), that would be great.
