Sarah Palin - a refusal to make a new start in political debate

Best Blogger Tips
Sarah Palin
Sarah Palin has posted a video on FaceBook, which is long on diplomatic aloofness and polished phrases but an utter failure to accept and grasp the poisonous degeneration of US political debate. A debate that she has assisted in dragging down to new lows.

Sarah Palin had an opportunity to think deeply about how to move her own supporters away from gun metaphors and toxic ripostes to political opponents. But instead she ignored the hate filled airwaves and bitter condemnations that have become commonplace. She just blamed purely the individual and seemed to naively think that the environment of debate has no impact on the actions of the individual.

I fear for the coming storm of the Presidential election that the poison will re-appear.

Sarah Palin you are no Jack Kennedy nor Ronald Reagan. No, you are a Joe McCarthy. You base you political philosophy on threats and viciousness dressed up as freedom of speech. Shame on you.
