Sarah Palin tells gutless GOP senators to ‘Woman up’ and stand their ground on ACA

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.

Senator Ted Cruz ✔ @SenTedCruz

Thank you! RT @SarahPalinUSA: We have your backs @SenTedCruz @SenMikeLee http://shar.es/K0pv8 Please RT to #DefundObamacare

Cruz will be on “Fox News Sunday” talking Obamacare.

Senator Ted Cruz ✔ @SenTedCruz

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

I only wish she was in the Senate. But, destiny has another path for her—so it seems. Maybe in the Liberty Party of the future?

Sarah is far too smart to promote any 3rd Party at this time.
It is a stupid idea.
To threaten the idea, because STUPID PEOPLE will try it, is one thing.
To do it is something else.
Sarah is smarter than that.

1 Million Truckers to Protest Obama by Shutting America Down for 3 Days in October

Seems to me that since congress repeatedly ignores the majority of Americans, that it's going to take stuff like this to rattle their cage. It's time to flex some muscle.

1.5 million of us respectfully gathered on 9/12 and "petitioned" for a hearing. Obozo flew over us in his copter (off to a pissant speaking engagement) and essentially defecated all over us.

Senator McCain , ON THE SENATE FLOOR called Senator Rand Paul a “Whacko Bird” for filibustering a couple months ago.

My bird book has no reference to a “Whacko Bird,” but once I saw the video of McCain flapping his arms as he delivered his “Whack Bird” comment, I knew then and there that McCain was actually describing himself.

Those weapons appear to most closely match the Czechoslovak Zb vz. 26 light machine gun on which the Bren light machine gun was based. The Czech model seems to have the straight magazine whereas the Bren mags were curved and carried more rounds. Link for the Czeck ZB vz. 26 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ZB_vz._26 and the link for the Bren http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bren_light_machine_gun Brens were used by the Canadian as well as our British allies and others.

Just a brief search so I am sure more extensive information could be found.

You can make this bet with 100 % accuracy

When the time comes to vote, McCain will stab us in the back...

Not because he really f'n cares, just for the joy of it...

...and his butt attachment Graham will follow suit...

I despise that SOB almost as much as Obama...

The only thing McCain has not that’s worth anything lately is to introduce the world to Sarah.

In reality, we OWN half of the Real Estate and ALL of the P*ssy.

Remind me again why Conservative/Libertarian/Tea Party Women aren’t running the show already? ;)

(Probably because that doesn’t fit nicely on a Bumper Sticker, LOL!)
