Sarah Palin was at her best again yesterday, using lots of words and making little sense. This time she appeared on Fox News saying things like, "[Obama] left behind our brave men in Benghazi to be murdered," and, "of course there's Syria, where he promised to bomb Syria because in that civil war, Syria was going to bomb Syria, and then we never heard another word again about his threat to bomb in a foreign civil war." Anchor Megyn Kelly tried hard to reign in the former Alaska governor and vice presidential candidate as she rambled on shamelessly about how Obama has ruined America's standing in the world.
With the government reopened and the debt ceiling raised for now, Palin has increased her activity on social media and on Fox News. After suicidal GOP tactics that caused a government shutdown and debt ceiling brinkmanship over the Affordable Care Act, President Obama said on Thursday, "[if] you don't like a particular policy, or a particular president, then argue for your position. Win an election. Push to change it. But don't break it (government)."
Thursday, Sarah Palin posted on her Facebook page: "Be energized. We're going to shake things up in 2014. Rest well tonight, for soon we must focus on important House and Senate races. Let's start with Kentucky, which happens to be awfully close to South Carolina, Tennessee, and Mississippi."
Palin is referring to important GOP senate primary races, particularly ones that have Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and Lindsay Graham (R-S.C.) pitted against staunch, often Tea Party challengers. She seems agreeable to Obama's stance: Iif you don't like a policy or the way a member of Congress is voting, elect someone else. The difference here is that Palin seeks to divide the Republican party further by her indirect efforts to "primary" Republican senators who are perceived by Tea Party purists as having yielded to President Obama by reopening the government on Wednesday.
