This is the very reason I cannot support her. If a burglar breaks into my house, I "understand why." It's because he wants my stuff and doesn't want to work to get his own stuff! It's because he's a selfish !@#$ who doesn't care about anyone but himself. Because I "understand why" he did it, does that mean he should have a path to live in my house and be a member of my family?
Palin's statement was absurd, and unless she recants, in sackcloth and ashes, begging forgiveness for ever saying it, I will not even consider voting for her.
