Two speeches illustrate clear contrast.

Obama's speech was all about the victims of the terrible Tuscon tragedy.

Palin's speech was about herself, how unfair she's being treated, and how this gets in the way of her political ambitions.

Says alot about the differences between the two and suitability for leadership, doesn't it?

This really was such a "no brainer" and still she f*cked it up. Unless the killer says he's a Palin follower or a Tea Party Member or something to the equivalent, then there is no link. It is look more and more like this everyday no. Palin had the perfect opportunity to demonstrate that she could rise above petty politics, but instead she shot herself in the foot. Don't worry, she'll reload ;)

MSNBC and Huffington Post: It's Sarah's fault, it's all Sarah's fault!

Palin: It's not my fault.

MSNBC and HP: It's all about you, isn't it, Sarah? You're so self-absorbed.

Zorph, I agree that Palin blew it. Like so many conservatives, she's a one-trick-pony, and her "Poor me, I'm persecuted by everyone" has gone beyond ridiculous, especially in this situation.

Rabbit, you've got the dialogue all wrong...

Media other than FOX: This incident illustrates that the violent rhetoric that permeates politics really ought to be turned down a notch and those exploiting it should start acting responsibly.

Palin: Wah! In the wake of this, I refuse to engage in even the slighest bit of self-examination or acknowledge that I've been irresponsibly using violent and revolutionary rhetoric as red meat for my base. Wah! I'm being persecuted by the "lamestream media" again! Wah! People were killed by a terrorist, but I'm the real victim here! Wah!

Media: Palin continues to illustrate what's wrong with politics these days.
