Sarah Palin’s statement

If you haven’t already seen it, here’s a link to the video of Sarah Palin’s response to the shootings — the actual bullets aimed at real bodies in Tucson, and the rhetorical bullets aimed at political bodies in Tucson’s wake.

The beginning, with it’s platitudes about “the process of healing” (and when did mourning become therapeutic) left me cold.  Palin hits her stride, though, when she quotes Reagan, and she just keeps going. I’m ambivalent about a Palin presidency, but I sure think she’s an important, clear and honest voice on the political scene, and she grows in stature with every bizarre attack against her.
