She was referring to this speech to a meeting of the RNC in Maryland:
Palin, who is no stranger to latching on to other people in order to keep her flacid political life alive, singled out Steele and his empty rhetoric. From Politico:
"We have another voice in Washington, DC – a man who understands what Alaskans believe: less centralized government control, restrained budgets, more opportunity for development, and fewer taxes," Palin said.
"Today, we have a friend in RNC Chairman Michael Steele and his bold and courageous speech defines his leadership goals that will guide us all through this most difficult time for our nation."
Palin, as predictable as she is, is somewhat masterfull in her delivery of the standard lines of conservative thought as she states, "We are now witnessing actions that will lead to a monumental shift away from free market capitalism and the strong work ethic that built this great country."
As it has been pointed out before, Palin fits the mold of "the pretty gimmick" that the conservative Right loves. Style over substance.
Micheal Steele needs a person like Palin to back him up. By and large, his own party is against him. With Palin, who has the backing of the true "leader" of the Replublican party - Boss Limbaugh, Steele has an ally of sorts. That is, until Steele says something monumentally stupid ( which is only a matter of time ) or until Rush tells Palin that she needs to rethink what she's saying.
In that respect, Limbaugh is nothing more than a beauty pageant coordinator.
