Palin Makes Sense (Sort Of) In Her Follow-up Facebook Post

Hey, I can give credit where credit is due.  Here's what she wrote yesterday:

"There are many disturbing details in the current bill that Washington is trying to rush through Congress, but we must stick to a discussion of the issues and not get sidetracked by tactics that can be accused of leading to intimidation or harassment….. Such tactics diminish our nation’s civil discourse which we need now more than ever because the fine print in this outrageous health care proposal must be understood clearly and not get lost in conscientious voters’ passion to want to make elected officials hear what we are saying. Let’s not give the proponents of nationalized health care any reason to criticize us."

She's making sense here, but in context, it's a trifle odd.

On Friday, she posted that Obamacare would include "death panels" which would, among other things, kill her Down's Syndrome baby.

Yet yesterday, she warns against "diminish[ing] our nation's civil discourse.

It's kind of like throwing gas on a camfire, and then saying "Whoa, let's not make the fire any bigger."

By the way, she's not walking back from her previous statement.  She's not changing her argument that Obama is planning to form "death panels"; she's just saying that the right wing "tactics" in respose should be more civil.
