In the wake of her disastrous video statement Wednesday, Sarah Palin is running to Sean Hannity for a heaping of consolation and damage control.
The video Palin released on the day of the memorial for the victims of the Tucson rampage presented her as the victim and, if that weren’t bad enough, offended millions with her appropriation of the phrase “blood libel” to describe what she was suffering.
It didn’t take long to recognize the depths to which her foot was shoved down her throat. She was lambasted from all sides with even staunch conservatives in shock by her fumble.
So in an effort to redeem herself she has announced that she will appear on national television to take questions about the incident. The only problem is that the questions will be coming from her dear friend and apologist, Sean Hannity. No one is more obsequious than Hannity, who we can rest assured will do his best to rehabilitate Palin’s image.
The one thing that we can take away from this is that Sarah Palin is bent on affirming her manifest cowardice. Just by scheduling this “interview” she is demonstrating a pitiful lack of character. She is conceding that she does not have the intellectual capacity, or the intestinal fortitude, to face her shortcomings or her critics. Does she really think that anyone will conclude from this charade that she has been put to the test and reclaimed her dignity (such as it is)?
Palin is now in full flail mode. Her latest book is #542 on Amazon. Her reality show on TLC is not being renewed after having dropped viewers throughout its short run. Most polls show that even Republicans don’t support her for president in 2012. And her favorable ratings are hovering in the mid-twenties.
It may be time for her to take a bow and return home to Wasilla. Thank goodness the American people are demonstrating a far greater measure of common sense than Palin ever will.
