Palin Calls For More GOP Senators To Be Primaried

The half-term governor from Alaska apparently believes that what the Republican party needs right now is to move even further to the right.

Who's covered more of Caribou Barbie (or, as Heather calls her, "Snow Snooki") than Crooks and Liars? Please help us keep up the good work by making a donation today.

After going out this past week and helping her buddy Ted Cruz drive the Republicans' poll numbers into the ground over this government shutdown that cost our economy billions of dollars, Snow Snooki told Fox's Megyn Kelly that "fiscal conservatives are more energized than ever" and don't be worried about those approval ratings. If they just stay united, they're going to pull off some big wins in the upcoming elections.

Of course she immediately followed that up by calling for a bunch of them to be primaried... because we all know nothing's going to help the Republican party more than the wingnuts like Palin and Cruz pushing them even further to the right.

Palin says fiscal conservatives are 'more energized than ever':

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is calling for Republicans to stand united after President Obama blamed the party for the weeks-long budget crisis, saying “fiscal conservatives are more energized than ever.”

Palin told Fox News’ Megyn Kelly on “The Kelly File” that Obama’s assertion the “spectacle” Republicans created “emboldened enemies of the U.S.” was “one of more out of touch remarks we have heard in recent days.”

Palin also dismissed the notion that Tea Party Republicans were the “losers” in the budget fight and may suffer in upcoming elections.

"Fiscal conservatives are more energized than ever after last night's deal where Americans came out as the losers," she said, "because we are just going to incur more and more debt and this unsustainable spending spree Barack Obama is on, no, we are saying 'enough is enough' and we are energized."

Palin, who suggested on Facebook she would support the primary challengers to some Republicans who backed the budget deal, said she is going to see who can possibly shake up the status quo in Congress in 2014.

“Those who can't stand strong to defend our republic, to defend our Constitution, heck yeah they should be primaried, otherwise we are going down," she said.

The only people I see trying to take our country "down" are the right wingers like Palin and her buddies in the Congress, who just cost us $25 billion with their brinksmanship and who still have the balls to refer to themselves as being "fiscal conservatives" after doing something like that.
