Palin Pretends Right-Wing Republicans Are Behaving Like Democrats

Nothing like having someone who quit her job as governor now threaten to leave her party if they're not willing to cater to the worst of the extremists among them.

As Faux "news" was waiting for the election results in Mississippi to come in, Sean Hannity and his producers decided that there was no one more qualified to weigh in on the recent primary races and the future of the Republican party than the half-term Quitta' from Wasilla, or as Charlie Pierce calls her, Princess Dumbass of the Northwoods, Sarah Palin.

Of course the lesson Palin took from the Cantor loss, before hearing the results of the Cochran race, is the the Republicans aren't quite extreme enough, and they'd better start acting like "real" Republicans or she's going to threaten to leave the party.

Here's more on her rant from Fox's blog: Palin: Why Get 'Gung Ho' About Electing More Republicans If They’re Going to Act Like Dems?:

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin was on “Hannity” tonight to discuss the Republican Party.

Sean Hannity asked Palin what she thought of Eric Cantor’s recent loss, and she said it speaks for itself.

“He was representing the machine, the establishment that had been there too long and was part then of that status quo problem,” she said.

Palin also said that if politicians would follow the Constitution, our country would be better off.

Hannity also asked Palin about recent remarks that suggested she might consider a third party if the GOP doesn’t get its act together.

“If Republicans are gonna act like Democrats, then what’s the use in getting all gung ho about getting more Republicans in there? We need people who understand the beauty of, the value of the free market to thrive. Otherwise, our country is gonna continue to be over-regulated, driving industry away, driving jobs away,” she said.

Palin warned that the U.S. could become “a bankrupt, fundamentally transformed country” unless we elect people who know what they’re doing and aren’t just going along with those in power.
