So as not to muddle up the thread about the Arizona shootings too much, I'm starting this thread.

Someone followed her FB today and the edits and deletions her people made. It's pretty fascinating and disturbing.

That is bizarre. Anyone who wasn't completely tone-deaf should have removed that post.

A commenter posted the following [on Palin's FB page] at 18:12: "It's ok. Christina Taylor Green was probably going to end up a left wing bleeding heart liberal anyway. Hey, as 'they' say, what would you do if you had the chance to kill Hitler as a kid? Exactly."
WOW.

"Pro-life?" Yeah sure, whatever! I guess "liberal" fetuses should be aborted?

I read all of that and of course, stupidly went and read the comments on the blog- DON'T DO IT! All I really can say is that this all makes me so depressed and angry as well but more depressed and hopeless for our country.

I think the comment about the girl/baby Hitler was meant to be scathing satire.

I think so, but my brain might be kicking into self-defense mode because of the awful possibility that it isn't.

Agreed. Satire or not, though it's still offensive. You'd think her staff would have better judgment. Or maybe I'm giving them too much credit.

That may well be the case, but do you think that the failure to delete it from the facebook account indicates that whoever was doing the deleting appreciated it as satire and deemed it appropriate for that venue, when so many milder comments were 86ed? The I'll buy the satire thing, but I'm not sure I buy that it was taken that way by SP's facebook team...

I think the Palin people are malfunctioning robots. I was defending the commenter, not the Palin people.

Don't read if you're prone to nausea or have, you know, common sense.

Edit to add: It's about e-mails between Glenn Beck and Palin on the shootings.

Well, this is something. I can't really understand why they'd keep it up if it was satire or not, though I doubt they have the brains to garner if it was.

I assume everything tweeted or facebooked by any Palin or other politico is written by a ghost writer, and I'd treat this no differently. There's a reason why people like them have "handlers"; their image is carefully controlled and manipulated.

I'm amused by the idea of Bristol Palin's ghost writers fighting with her mother's ghost writers.

Which is why I still love that tweet.

I dunno. I've read the comments enough to believe that there are plenty of people that are that awful.

"I hate violence," Palin replied, according to Beck. "I hate war. Our children will not have peace if politicos just capitalize on this to succeed in portraying anyone as inciting terror and violence. Thanks for all you do to send the message of truth and love and God as the answer."

Blaming Sarah Palin for the Shooting is Wrong (by der Speigel), but calling her on her BS isn't.

But Palin's "handlers" have shown they are not particularly great at their jobs. She has always had a tendency to "go rogue," or otherwise go off-message on television, in print and online. If her people were actually decent at handling her image, half of America wouldn't be sitting around talking about how she's a ignorant, evil, though admittedly folksy moron who would be catastrophically dangerous for this country. But we are. Because she is.
