Sarah Palin is back to the “violent rhetoric” today, writing at Breitbart.com that the battle to defund Obamacare is headed to the Senate. Palin even offers to compare “shiv marks” with Sen. Ted “Wacko Bird” Cruz to see who’s more often been the victim of what she calls the “anonymous sources” backstabbing game. Cruz and Sen. Mike Lee have her full support in their push to hold off the Obamacare train wreck. Her faith in the rest of the Senate isn’t so solid, though. She writes:
We’d like to believe that the GOP establishment would applaud the way these bold leaders have rallied the grassroots to their cause. But, no, such praise would require a commensurate level of guts and leadership, and the permanent political class in D.C. is nothing if not gutless and rudderless.
If the Senate doesn’t get behind Ted Cruz’s efforts to defund Obamacare, it won’t be because of any failure on Ted’s part. It’ll be because there weren’t enough principled leaders to stand with him, and that would be a tragic loss, not for Ted, but for America.
But the permanent political class is handwringing and howling that if there’s a government shutdown the media will blame Republicans for it. Here’s a little newsflash, GOP establishment: Whenever anything bad happens, the media blames Republicans for it. That’s not an excuse to roll over and play dead. It’s a call to follow the advice I give my daughters: Woman up, stand your ground, and fight like a girl!
It’s a flattering portrait of Cruz to be certain, and the “very junior Senator from Texas” sent his thanks for the support.
Cruz will be on “Fox News Sunday” talking Obamacare.
Senate GOPs should insist Harry Reid pass House bill as is & demand 60-vote threshold for any effort to add Obamacare funding back into bill—
