Memo to Sarah Palin

Ronald Reagan, quoted in a Sarah Palin press release:

It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.

Memo to Sarah Palin: If you’re going to quote Reagan in a press release decrying “the left” “blaming” you for Jared Loughner’s massacre, you should probably be willing to accept personal responsibility for using over-the-top rhetoric and imagery in campaign literature and admit that you shouldn’t have done that when you were called out for it EIGHT MONTHS AGO.

We don’t let people off scot-free who hire hitmen merely because they didn’t pull the trigger themselves. Inciting violence is wrong, too, and apparently you don’t realize this, or simply aren’t willing to admit that people might have interpreted it that way.

Also, stop being childish by prohibiting NPR from embedding the video. You’re clearly unfit to be anything more than a modern celebutard.
