Man, I needed a laugh. And before you despoil your keypad, Frank, it's not about you. I'll take the humor out of it if I try to dissect why that phrase made me spit, suffice to say it did.

I looooooooooove the sarcasm. That's all.

...we also call it male enhancement!

In Frank's case, the outcome is interchangeable.

Yep. It's always good to get another POV.

Pravda's "blood libel" search came up with three articles sans palin;

but they're all over the crosseyed opossum.
http://english.pravda.ru/society/storie ... erstars-0/

China's Peoples Daily; "brood ribel" search has little new to offer.

Aboriginal and Tribal New Nation News hasn't updated since '08
http://www.newnation.org/NNN-news-aboriginal.html

The Wiccan/Pagan Times is current, but nothing on bloody palin? go figure.

Certainly, Vampire News !

nope, just not newsworthy.

Um, Mike, I think you're missing the over-arching point here...I would expect that Palin's "Blood Libel" comment has little significance outside the country other than as a microscope with which to view the American voting public. (Well, except to the UK, Canada and Israel, perhaps. They have vested interests in our political climate). I might also watch your own tin ear when it comes to mimicking Chinese dialect. (Said as Steve, not as the moderator.)

Excellent article, Mr. E. Thanks for posting.
- I love to find adventure. All I need is a change of clothes, my Nikon, an open mind and a strong cup of coffee.

Sarah Palin doesn't even know what blood libel is. She barely knows what brocoli is. We are giving her too much credit. A good hate monger at least reads the right screeds. Palin only reads her cue cards.

Keeney, calm down buddy, I found Rob's goof as funny. It made me giggle as well. He usually makes my stomach hurt, so I will give him that.

Steve B.;
Sorry 'bout the pups, I've been there, it sucks.

Initialy, my desire (partly inspired by Steve E's post) was to find and investigate the hopefully more objective, less involved, emotionaly charged views that may be available in a foreign land. As I recall, it occurred to me that China may have an interest in US concerns and might offer a pov of interest.

Possibly a mental shadow of Jean Shepherd's work (fa ra ra ra ra, and the head of a roast duck) had not yet faded, but by whatever trigger, the course of my mental process had been redirected . Of course Steve E. and Mr. Shep. bear no blame for my tin ear or lame sense of humor. That shame is my own.

But yes, the ever elusive "over-arching point".
Of which I would suggest there actually is none (metaphysically); or it is whatever you insist.

With that in mind, for the consideration of all, food for thought, apropos of nothing
(unless, of course, you sense a connection, if only in part):

"It is not because the truth is too difficult to see that we make mistakes... we make mistakes because the easiest and most comfortable course for us is to seek insight where it accords with our emotions - especially selfish ones.”


" If only it were all so simple! If only there were evil people somewhere committing evil deeds, and it were necessary only to separate them from the rest of us and destroy them. But the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being. And who is willing to destroy a piece of his own heart? "

Though I was personally amused at her inability to name a single one of the "many papers" she claimed to read daily, I was more worried by her inability to distinguish between the two Koreas, a distinction that might matter a great deal in the event of war. And there are people who want this person to be President. . .


Love the Solzhenitsyn quote Mike.

Don't mind our Frankie. I think that sometimes he's got his head shoved so far up his butt that the brain cells die from oxygen depravation.

Evidence suggests that Frank suffered from O2 deprivation long before he wedged his cortex into his excretory canal!
