Wasilla Mama Griz Rocks Wisconsin
Darn tootin’ that those lamestream liberal journolisters at the New York Slime have the unnerve and indecency to start their “report" (more like a hit-job) on Sarah’s AH-MAZING speech in Madison, Wisconsin today with this no-good excuse for a lede:
At first, the prospect drew mildly worried looks from people on both sides of this state’s giant political divide…
EX-SCUSE ME? “Both sides” of the divide? As if the stuck-up, holier-than-thou NYT ever has ANY ideas about what’s going on in the rest of America outside their ivory tower!! At least any CORRECT ideas. Especially after they put up ANOTHER Berlin payWall between them and the American people… Anyway! Moving on!
But there she was on Saturday afternoon, a throng of Tea Party supporters cheering her on and a throng of union supporters trying to shout them (and her) down.
WELL, so nice of the Times to actually report the FACTS for once! I’m shocked! Oh wait, there they go again: Lyin’ and makin’ up stuff about a “throng” of union thugs.
First of all, from someone who was THERE (in my heart, at least), the few anti-Sarah haters that were there were more than outnumbered 100-2-1 by all of her and Governor Walker’s supporters. That’s it Times, you’ve lost me. Since we’re all looking for the facts, time to switch over to a real blue-blooded American news source: Reuters.
Conservative Sarah Palin returned to the U.S. political arena on Saturday after several months absence with a feisty speech attacking both the establishment Republican Party and Democratic President Barack Obama and proclaiming “the 2012 elections begin here.”
Now that’s more like it!
As snow and sleet fell on Madison’s main square, Palin attacked the budget compromise between Republicans and Obama on cuts of around $38 billion instead of $100 billion promised by Republicans in elections last November.
"That is not courage, that is capitulation," she said, adding that a recent bruising battle in Wisconsin over union bargaining rights provided a number of lessons.
"We didn’t elect you just to rearrange the deck chairs on a sinking Titanic," she said. "We didn’t elect you just to stand back and watch Obama redistribute those deck chairs."
Palin also pointed out that Wisconsin is the “the frontlines in the battle for the future of our country! This is where the line has been drawn in the sand and I am proud to stand with you today in solidarity. I’m here today as a Patriot, a taxpayer, as a former union member and the wife of a union member…the daughter of a family full of schoolteachers,” and said that “Your Governor Scott Walker understands that states must be solvent in order to keep their promises” to fulfill government pensions. She rightly blamed the union bosses for their “death threats and thug tactics” and praised the Tea Party for “real solidarity.”
Later, she took to Twitter to downplay the virtual version of those thug tactics, RTing
HeyTammyBruce MT Beltway operatives are spreading the false rumor that Palin is being paid to speak in Madison. She’s not.
And of course, she got loads of love from her loyal Facebook fans. Like Shelby Storm, who wrote:
The Wisconsin peeps are coming to facebook to say good things about Sarah’s speech. I think the people have missed Palin being out on the trail like she did in 2008. She needs to get out and more of this and RUN.
In Sarah’s words: Don’t retreat, reload!
