    In the discussion with the women from the Tea Party in St. Louis, I thought Mr. Cooper should have pointed out how rude she was or point out that she was not letting him( I do not remember his name) finish his statement. She continually cut off the other person without letting him finish. This is just another form of bulling that goes on in our country. Maybe AC thought people would see this for themselves.

    People a on her case for using the term BLOOD LIBEL. I guess they would be happier if she said CRUCIFIED instead.
    Expressions used today don't have the same meaning as their original orientation. If someone says they have been working hard all day, slaving away in the kitchen. That is not meant as an insult to African Americans & Blood libel was not meant as an insult either.
    The fact that Anderson Cooper (someone who always like & thought was a fair person) jumped on the Keith Olbermann bandwagon, made me lose all respect for him. I am one more person who will not be watching him anymore.

    It should be obvious to people that Palin has a disability which causes her to make outrageous comments and then go on the defensive and she's been hiding it for a long time. Palin doesn't talk policy, education, economy, just jibber jabber about nothing but lies and hate.

    Is Sarah Palin the only other person you can find to do a comparison with the President ? Do you realize how foolish your reporting looks to the outside world ? I live in Alberta, Canada and I want to know about American news but not your fringe wannabees. Get some decent, serious news and stop the Palin parade - you're giving her press for what, may I ask ?

    Seems to me that what is more important than what Palin actually said is that once again she has shown she's not smart or savvy enough to be a leader.

    Anderson Cooper displayed a video of Sarah Palin's response to the Arizona shootings. In one of the video's she has an American flag to the right of the fireplace behind her and yet in another video of the same shot the flag was missing. It appears the flag was photoshopped in for her commentary but was missing for the interview portion. Any ideas of what's going on here?

    Let's just say there is no comparison. President Obama speaks and directs as a leader, the other enjoys playing the victim and stirring up the hate tribes with more rhetoric and distortion.

    Anderson, Sarah Palin may not be directly responsible for Jared's irrational behavior and muderous rampage in Tucson; but she is certaintly responsible for the Tea Party hate-filled demonstrations last year and giving a "wink wink" and a "nod nod" to the irrational, racial and anti-American rhetoric and discourse in politics today. Thank you John McCain for the Palin "prize" that keeps on giving hate.

    My comment concerning Sarah Palin and her using the words "blood libel", she herself admits it was in an article, is that why she used it? She hasn't shown herself to know much on history, or to be very articulate. Was she using two words she knew nothing about, just thought they sounded good. That's what I think.

    I say let Sarah just keep talking, as she is doing quite fine reducing her chances at anything great. She may get airtime, but air is all she is capable of, and lots of it!! Teabags and airbags yada yada yada blah blah blah You all do remember that she is the same helicopter huntin' piece of work, so I am not surprised.

    Why is CNN giving credence to this woman? Comparing her to the President is ridiculous. The president is intelligent. She is not. The only reason that this woman is where she is, she is a white woman. Imagine any woman of color showing up with an 17-year-old high school dropout, does anyone think that person would have been nominated and given the "acclaim" this no-nothing woman has gotten? Let Fox promote her. No one else should.
