Asked what her advice would be to conservatives as the November elections approach, Palin first lavished praise on the Tea Party movement, calling it "a grand movement" and adding, "I love it because it’s all about the people."
But she quickly pivoted to the broader question of whether the Tea Party movement might successfully field its own candidates in national elections, and on that point she sounded far from convinced.
"Now the smart thing will be for independents who are such a part of this Tea Party movement to, I guess, kind of start picking a party," Palin said. "Which party reflects how that smaller, smarter government steps to be taken? Which party will best fit you? And then because the Tea Party movement is not a party, and we have a two-party system, they’re going to have to pick a party and run one or the other: ‘R’ or ‘D’."
Palin said that the Republican platform best meshed with the Tea Party’s creed. However, she mentioned that her husband Todd was not a registered Republican and that the party should be open to embracing independents.
This nonsense about "Independants" in the Tea Bagger movement is simply preposterous. They are about as "Independant" as Joe Lieberman. They are, in point of fact, Republicans that want to create the appearance that they dont' need the Republican party. You know, it's about "bein' mavericky".
But isn't it reassuring to know that the rest of the country were right about these people, that they needed the GOP in order to have any chance of longevity in the socio-political world. The same was true for their "grass-roots" status, they needed people like FreedomWorks and Dick Armey to fund them. They were nothing more than pissed off sore losers from the Republican party and wanted someone to pay attention to them so they created this persona. Look where's it's landed them.
Sarah's calling you guys back home to the GOP again, the charade is finished.
