Sarah Palin’s Highly Offensive MLK Day Observance

What’s offensive about it? I’m not sure yet… but you can be sure that something here is going to set the left off:

“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.

Today is a day to reflect on the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Dr. King dedicated himself to justice and the struggles of an imperfect world. In the face of fierce opposition, he stood up for the oppressed, and he ultimately sacrificed all for equality and freedom. His was a remarkable life of love and service for all mankind. His work must continue.

With Dr. King’s faith in God and his unwavering hope in a brighter, stronger future, let us recommit today to continuing his work for a more peaceful and just nation.

– Sarah Palin

Mankind” — that’ll piss off the feminists — and that’s just for starters.

Also, contained in the above statement are all the letters required to spell out any number of racial slurs and gun metaphors — even “bullseye.” Outrage on MSNBC tonight in 3… 2… 1…

Update: If you missed it, video of Sarah Palin’s first interview in a while is here. Not backing down, thankfully.
