When Is A Terrorist Not A Terrorist?

According to Sarah Palin, a person that bombs an abortion clinic is NOT a terrorist, or at least she is not sure if you should "use the word terrorist there". This comment occurred during an interview with Brian Williams. Read about it and view a video of the interview (in case you think I made this up) here and here. (

Her answer was in response to a pretty easy question. She was asked if she felt that abortion clinic bombers were terrorists. Rather than giving the politically correct answer "yes", an answer that the vast majority of Americans would agree with, she went off on a rant about Ayers, and then said that

"Now, others who would want to engage in harming innocent Americans or facilities that it would be unacceptable to... I don't know if you're gonna use the word 'terrorist' there,"

So, I guess only a left-wing fanatic is a terrorist. A right-wing fanatic may be unacceptable but not a terrorist.

Is this the type of thinking you want a "heatbeat" away from the presidency?
