2. For liberal radio host Thom Hartmann, Palin is on par with Osama bin Laden. “Sarah Palin. She hasn’t come out of her cave up there in Alaska. Sarah bin Palin, should we call her? But she has issued a video!” he remarked. In case that hadn’t made his point, Hartmann continued to rail against Palin for being upset that she was accused of being responsible for Loughner’s actions: “Talk about making your head explode. . . . Sarah Palin is trying to conflate her being accused of this crime as being some kind of an incredible victim, as if for a thousand years, well, I mean, I don’t want to get into hyperbole here, but I just, I find this astounding.”
