Don’t Retreat, Revise
Over the weekend things got a little crazy and, in the heat of the moment, I referred to Sarah Palin’s online campaign graphic (seen below) as “Sarah Palin’s Hit List“.
For this I want to apologize. I was angry and frustrated at the time and, to be frank, it wasn’t my finest moment. It’s just that, speaking as a blogger, we sometimes post before we think things through in the rush to be be first or “win the internet” as they say at Politico. Such was the case on Saturday morning when I didn’t stop and calmly think it through which, I’m embarrassed to say, exposed me at both my most reckless as well as my least thoughtful. For this, I apologize to my readers, both those of you who have followed me over my nine years of blogging and newer readers who have only recently discovered my humble blog. You deserved better and I let you down.
Having thought about it and searched my conscience over the past few days, I will agree with my fellow Americans on the conservative side of the aisle that my description of the graphic was grotesquely inaccurate and that it is obviously “Sarah Palin’s Death Map” because, upon further review it is obviously not a “list” as most Americans have come to understand the term but a map indicating the locations of people Sarah Palin doesn’t believe should live… but only as long as she is not blamed for their untimely, yet just, deaths.
Again, I apologize and I hope you can find it your heart to forgive me, and I give you my word that I will try to serve you better in the future.
Gawd, I’m glad I got that off my chest.
