Palin’s Take

Sarah Palin via phone on Fox says this is a “tidal wave.” She calls it a message against the status quo in D.C. “A referendum on the Left’s policy agenda,” she declares. The people are opposing a government takeover of health care and an intrusion in our lives. This is a “step in taking our country back.” She says she would have endorsed Scott Brown had he asked, but he “didn’t call in a lot of outsiders.” The Tea Party movement vs. the Republican party? She says she doesn’t look at those as opposing phenomenon. The Tea Party, she explains, is a small-government movement, which is compatible with what the GOP should be.

What she wants is to scratch ObamaCare. What does she think will happen? She says the people have to be “ever vigilant” to watch out for the parliamentary tricks. And Martha Coakley? Palin shows some good-humored empathy — she knows something about blaming a candidate in a tough year.

Liberal Palin haters should watch and listen to her now and then. Her delivery has become more polished and she is now able to make her argument succinctly. No wonder the Left is freaked out that she has a platform to refine her skills and build her audience.
