Palin, 'blood libels' and our own culpability

Sorry, I'm not going to join those jumping all over Sarah Palin for her use of the term “blood libel” in referring to those claiming that the right is at fault in Saturday's Tucson massacre.

No, it's no accurate; “blood libel” has a very particular, chilling meaning. It's a stupid comparison, and not just a little offensive.

But Palin is hardly alone in using it as a synonym for “unfair charges.”
