Whenever the right needs to up the ante in dog whistling their go-to mouthpiece is Sarah Palin.
So, predictably, with Republicans losing ground with independent voters who are not buying GOP claims that it’s the oppression of the very rich that continues to plague the economy, Palin appeared on Fox News to help grease the wheels. And because it involves Palin, it got weird. Fast.
Palin was asked why the Republican party didn’t give Palin a high profile speaking spot at the upcoming Republican National Convention. The reason, Palin explained, is because Democratic Senate hopeful Elizabeth Warren is a Marxist.
Well, I know speaking personally there is no hatchet to bury, or olive branch that needs to be passed between Mitt Romney and myself. We have a great relationship, and I have great respect for Mitt, and I am so thankful that the GOP has a strong candidate who understands the private sector, and what it takes to get the economy roaring again. That he will be our candidate. So I can’t speak for their strategy and who it is that they will choose to be participants in the convention.
I will tell you though. It’s crackin’ me up watching what the Democrats totally, this idiotic strategy of theirs to have Elizabeth Warren who has almost confessed to her Marxist views. These views that replicate failed European countries about redistribution of wealth and all these failed policies, and she is going to be the face of that message in the convention. I think it is very risky of the Democrats, because there are a lot of good working Democrats, a lot of blue collar, hardworking, working class Democrats, Blue Dogs, who don’t want to see that type of message being reflective of their entire platform, because it is a ridiculous and failed plank in a platform.
So there you have it.
Stephanie Schriock, President of EMILY’s List, had this to say on Sarah Palin’s false attacks. “Former Governor Sarah Palin has a bad habit of hurling attacks at pro-choice Democratic women who have a strong track record of fighting for working families,” said Stephanie Schriock, President of EMILY’s List. “But she doesn’t speak for women voters who are tired of the Tea Party GOP’s divisive agenda. Women want leaders like Elizabeth Warren who are committed to expanding opportunities for working families – not ideologues who want to roll back the clock on women’s access to healthcare, critical services for seniors, and equal pay. And this November, those voters will have the opportunity to once again reject Sarah Palin’s harmful and backwards agenda.”
Palin’s tour of bitter rejection continues today with a stop in Missouri where she’s campaigning against Sen. Claire McCaskill, and as long as Palin’s on the road, we can be guaranteed the bizarre screeds will continue.
