I think we can all agree that the worst thing to happen in the past week was not the indiscriminate shooting of 20 people at a Tucson supermarket, or the death of a 9 year-old girl and a federal judge — it was the fact that people opportunistically used the event to score political points on me, Sarah Palin. Imagine. Our founders would be shuddering in those big white wigs at the very thought.

I have to figure whoever wrote this for Palin knew precisely what that metaphor was all about. It’s not an accident that Palin likens herself to a persecuted religious sect. She has the victimization thing down pat.
