Dodging a bullet
February 11, 2013 - Harry Eagar
We haven't heard much from Sarah Palin lately, which is a shame, because she's almost always good for a laugh.
But not every time. Now, in the kind of gratuitous slap at the president that passes for policy among Republicans these days, she is demanding that Obama make some sort of gesture for Chris Kyle, and condemning him (Obama) for not ordering the nation's flags down to half-staff when Kyle died.
"We may never know to what extent Chris kept us free or how many lives he saved by his brave actions in the line of fire. But his fellow warriors know how important he was," Palin wrote.
Yeah, we know one he didn't save. His own. Because the gun nut provided a weapon and ammunition to a man who was -- Kyle thought -- mentally unbalanced. What could possibly go wrong?
Oh, yeah. The man shot Kyle. You could say he was asking for it. Too bad about the bystander who also got shot to death, though.
Scary to think about that mean-spirited, small-minded woman in high office.
