Sarah Palin, in response to criticism she received in the wake of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords's shooting (as observed from the alternative universe in which she displays leadership qualities)…
"My initial response was to defend the fact that I had never condoned such violence, and never would. But the fact is, if I in any way contributed to an unhealthy political climate, I have to be more careful and deliberate in my public language rather than merely sharpen my defenses."
Also, in that universe, she has blonde hair, eats elk meat and is a Mama Black Bear.
