Palin's reaction to Tucson massacre end her chances of being president?
FROM CNN's Jack Cafferty:
Sarah Palin may have done herself in.

The tragedy in Tucson, Arizona, presented an opportunity for Palin to reach beyond her base and strike a note of unity. It was her chance to say something that showed she was capable of true leadership. You see, before Palin opened her mouth, there was a good deal of sympathy for her. Many believed it was wrong to drag her into the debate.

But then she spoke. And it was just awful. Defiant and inflammatory, Palin invoked the historically painful term "blood libel" in attacking the media. This is a phrase used to describe anti-Semitic myths about how Jews killed children to use their blood in rituals.

NBC news correspondent Andrea Mitchell suggested the use of the phrase "blood libel" was "ignorant." Which it was. A CBS analysis suggested Palin played "the victim card." Which she did. And ABC said Palin "once again, has found a way to become part of the story." True.

It is being suggested that the scope of the Tucson situation is simply beyond Palin's limited skill set. And when you compare Palin's response to the uplifting speech we heard from our president last night, well, you can draw your own conclusions.

President Obama still has work to do when it comes to delivering on his campaign promises to change Washington and elevate the national discourse but last night went a long way in reminding many Americans why they voted for him. And comparing the president's lofty words to Palin's small ones must have many Republicans rethinking their support of a woman who has great difficulty getting beyond her image of some sort of rogue momma grizzly bear.

Highlights of a few comments:
Caribou Barbie is a simple-minded ..showing true colors with her "Death Panels", "Don't Retreat, Reload", or current hoof-in-mouth "Blood Libel" statement.

Palin is a typical reality show in the flesh - all show and very little reality."....will find a way to insert herself into any situation, no matter how tragic, and use it as a vehicle to promote herself.

Even her fellow Alaskans cringe at her ignorance.

Obama: "It's all about us". Palin: "It's all about me."

Cafferty notes he got thousands of e-mails about Palin's loony bin comments - scanned a few hundred before the show and didn't see more than 3 that were supportive of Palin, all the rest negative.

Maybe we can put the Palin lunacy away and start looking at serious national leaders.
