In Janurary after The Associated Press called Massachusetts's special Senate election for Scott Brown, Sarah Palin began a media tour, beginning on Fox News of course, and hailed the Republican's win as "a step for taking our country back."
Palin spokeswoman Meg Stapleton told POLITICO the following
"Gov. Palin spoke with a very happy Sen.-elect Brown this evening and congratulated him on his most historic victory for not only Massachusetts but the nation,"
Palin said: "This is a referendum on all those things that President Obama has been standing for," the 2008 vice presidential candidate told Fox's Greta Van Susteren. "It was many different factors all coming together — and thank God for that, I think a lot of the people will say, because this is a step for taking our country back."
In a posting on her Facebook page, Palin added: "Americans cheered for Scott Brown’s underdog campaign because they viewed his candidacy as a vote against the Democrats' health care bill."
But that's all over now. Since making good on his campaign promise to serve the will of his constituents, Sarah Palin is washing her hands of Brown for not pushing the conservative agenda no matter what.
On Fox Business Wednesday The former Alaska governor said that "you dance with the one that brought you" and that Republicans should not "follow the herd" by going along with the Obama-Pelosi-Reid agenda.
This prompted Fox to ask if Scott Brown was "on notice," adding that "he's gone along with the Pelosi-Reid message for the past couple of votes."
PALIN: "That's Massachusetts," Palin replied. "And perhaps they're not going to look for such a hard-core constitutional conservative there and they're going to put up with Scott Brown and some of the antics there. But here in Alaska and so many places across the U.S. where we have a pioneering spirit and we have an expectation that our representatives in D.C. will respect the will of the people and respect the intelligence of the people. We wouldn't stand for that."
And once again, Palin shoots herself in the foot by displaying her political ignorance and for not understanding that the "will of the people" in Alaska has nothing to do with the will of the people in Massachsetts. She doesn't understand that the citizens of Massachusetts also have expectation that their representatives in D.C. will respect their will and not the will of the GOP.
This shouldn't come as any surprise to conservatives since Brown said during his camapign that he will sever the people of Massachusetts, but I suppose they were too focused on claiming Ted Kennedy's seat as a priority. I suppose that anything Brown said during the campaign was a bridge they would cross when they got to it.
Well....Sarah, meet bridge. Bridge, meet Sarah.
Fortunately this appears to be a bridge to somewhere. In a video titled "Palin's Winning Touch" they allow palin to take a victory lap over Joe Miller's predicted win over Lisa Merkowski. But it quickly turns into a blast against Scott Brown for voting with democrats a few times on issues important to the citizens of Massachusetts.
