Six innocent bystanders are dead in Arizona. An elected official, a wife, a mother, lies in a hospital bed with a bullet wound through her brain. A couple in Tucson will bury their 9-year-old daughter.
Yet Sarah Palin wants us to watch her video and reflect on how hurt SHE is by the nation scrutinizing her words, actions, and political images.
Can she truly not understand this moment? Must she really interject HER hurt feelings right now?
I have pledged in my own heart to end vitriolic rhetoric when I hear it, and to not write it myself anymore. Therefore I will refrain from name-calling or hyperbolic metaphor both in my speech and my written words. But I will not refrain from calling out bad behavior. And her behavior right now is crass at best. Has she no shame in the end?
