Last words on "blood libel"

Moe Lane has said pretty well what ought to be the last words on the manufactured fuss about “blood libel” — manufactured because everyone, everyone’s brother, and everyone’s brother’s dog used it as a more general metaphor before Palin said it; it wasn’t offensive, it was just another attempt at a political attack on Palin.
