Sarah Palin didn’t need to apologize regarding the attempted assassination of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.
And she didn’t apologize.
But, true to her ditzy ways, she still opened her mouth and weighed in on the matter, trotting out a phrase — “blood libel” — that had nothing to do with anything.
As it happens, the phrase is interpreted by people around the world as anti-Jewish, according to this Guardian UK article and many others.
Seems “blood libel” was a longstanding get-out-of-jail-free card when murdering Jews in Europe.
Palin, of course, is Christian.
Giffords is Jewish.
Jewish groups are all verklempt now.
I’m betting Palin is too dumb to know what she was saying, or to even know what she thought she meant she wanted to say.
Still, she’s mucked things up even worse, as I predicted she would in my first blog post.
