Sarah Palin Tells Iowa Conservatives It's Time 'to Stiffen Our Backs'.

Source: nyt/reuters

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, who rallied members of the Tea Party in their failed effort to defund Obamacare, lashed out on Saturday against members of the Republican Party who agreed to end the government shutdown.

The 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee's comments during a speech in Des Moines come at a time of division within the party over the strategy conservative members of Congress adopted in forcing a 16-day shutdown of the federal government last month.

Polls have shown voters blamed Republicans for the shutdown.

Palin, who was speaking to hundreds of attendees at the Iowa Faith and Freedom Coalition's annual fall banquet, was joined by Senator Mike Lee, a Republican from Utah. Lee, along with fellow Tea Party movement star Senator Ted Cruz, was instrumental in the ill-fated attempt to defund Obamacare, the popular name for the healthcare reform law championed by President Barack Obama.

Palin told the Christian conservatives in attendance it was time to "stiffen our spines" for the 2014 elections.

"I want to encourage you to make your voice heard, to hold politicians accountable," Palin said.

17. That's So Disjointed I Don't Understand What They Are Arguing For

At one point she is talking about the 2014 elections yet the "stiffen our spines" is directed at the impending rerun of a government shutdown followed 2 weeks later by a government default and those happen in January and February of 2014 so the article is wrong that she is talking about the 2014 elections except to say stand firm on no debt ceiling increase or you will be primaried. Indeed, do elections even matter since she is ignoring the 2012 and 2013 election results. Will the next step be a call to the military to execute a coup if she doesn't get her way? It is McCarthyism on steroids. Are there any Republicans with the backbone to stand up to these extremists? Certainly not John Boehner and that spells big trouble. The joint budget committee will not report out a compromise budget in mid-December as called for by law which means appropriation bills will not be passed by mid-January and throw us into government shutdown II followed in February with a government default on its debt. Yes, it is this bleak if Palin stiffens enough spines.

23. A TeaPublican once asked my mother what she thought of "my gal Sarah". Here's mom's reply:

 

"She's an idiot! All she does is strut around the country flapping her 'you-know-what' around and saying stupid things. She's an idiot!"

Interestingly, this was a weekly peace vigil always infiltrated by this TeaPub who had to spout about his right wing heroes.

Mom was 69 years old and told me that him standing there praising Palin was her last straw. She said he stood there dumbfounded by her response. (pun intended) Shut him right up.

Go mom !

All we need to take back the House of Representatives next fall is for a few more voices like her's to be given full coverage in the news media. Recent polling shows Americans have finally started to wise-up to that brand of bullshit. They're beginning to realize that the "Beast" Palin's crowd wants to "Starve" is really the American economy as a whole.
