Maybe Ithaca isn’t so bad afterall.

Only because of Professor William A. Jacobson at Cornell Law, who writes one of the best posts on the Left’s attempt to blame Palin for Tucson.

Having created a false narrative of Palin’s responsibility for the shooting, the mainstream media tried to deprive Palin of the ability to defend herself against the charges.  And unfortunately, some who supposedly are on our side have jumped on that bandwagon.

And all the while, Barack Obama stood back for days and let his supporters in the media rip Palin apart, much as he left it to his supporters to go after the Clintons during the primary, only then to proclaim that we don’t really know why Jared Loughner did what he did.  And the media narrative was how wonderful Obama was, how he helped heal the nation.

Any Republican or conservative or Tea Party supporter who dumps on Palin in any way over the Tucson shooting or her defense of herself should just stop talking now.

It does not matter whether you support Palin for President, whether you think she is electable, or even whether you like her.  This is not about Palin, it is about the mainstream media’s desire to have Barack Obama re-elected at any cost and to take down any Republican candidate who stands in the way.

If you haven’t been reading Legal Insurrection, your missing out.

    I have to admit, after watching the events unfold that week, the thought from the conspiracy theory part of my brain occurred to me that the left and media frothed up a big straw man for the express purpose of allowing Obama to come in and knock it down and play the part of the level-headed hero.
