While not defending Sarah Palin's crosshairs map and election-oriented Tweets about "reloading," Barbara Walters still feels kind of bad for her.
On The View, Babs insists that Sarah isn't responsible for the shooting in Arizona perpetrated by Jared Lee Loughner, "a deranged young man."
“Whether that speared him on or whether he is just a very sick person, we don’t know," Walters says, but we all need to stop pointing fingers ...
"To blame Sarah Palin I think is very unfair to her," she added.
We agree. We have said the same all along. Sarah Palin is not responsible, directly or indirectly, for the shooting of U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.
Criticisms of her vitriolic rhetoric, low class tactics and bull$h!t story about how the crosshairs weren't meant to be gun sights are in bounds, however.
What do you think? Is she partly to blame for what happened?
