Palin To Tea Party Rally: Dump the Democrats You're fired, she says of Senate leader Harry Reid in his hometown
LAS VEGAS - Sarah Palin exhorted thousands of conservative tea party activists assembled in the Nevada desert Saturday to "fire" Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and other Democrats from Congress in the upcoming national election.
The wind whipped U.S. flags behind the former Alaska governor as she stood on a makeshift stage, holding a microphone and her notes as she spoke to the cheering crowd in Reid's hometown. She told them Reid, fighting for re-election, is "gambling away our future."
"Someone needs to tell him, this is not a crapshoot," Palin said.
About 7,000 people streamed into tiny Searchlight, a former mining town 60 miles south of Las Vegas, bringing American flags, "Don't Tread on Me" signs and outspoken anger toward Reid, President Barack Obama and the health care overhaul.
Palin told them the big-government, big-debt spending spree of the Senate majority leader, Obama and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is over.
"You're fired!" Palin said.
A string of polls has shown Reid is vulnerable in politically moderate Nevada after pushing Obama's agenda in Congress. His standing has also been hurt by Nevada's double-digit unemployment and record foreclosure and bankruptcy rates.
The Searchlight native responded with sarcasm to the large crowd gathered in the hardscrabble town of about 1,000 he grew up in.
"I'm happy so many people came to see my hometown of Searchlight and spend their out-of-state money, especially in these tough economic times," Reid said Saturday in a statement released through his Senate campaign. "This election will be decided by Nevadans, not people from other states who parachuted in for one day to have a tea party."

Uh oh. She used the word “fire” towards Harry Reid. Clearly what she meant by the use of the that word was for the tea party folks to burn Harry Reid at the stake. /s
Does that include McAmnesty?
Harry’s upset because he will have to go back to haunting houses for a living. Pelosi better tune up that broom.
Tea Party to Palin: Dump McCain!
I’d like to take a dump on Democrats, but I’ll settle for firing their asses right now
"Politically moderate" -- is that the term that the leftists are now using for people who once voted for liberals are now turning turning conservative?
So now Harry thinks he owns his home town?
I heard these same two lines/mantras attributed to different people in another news article.
I feel the need. The need to dump Reid.
The only thing more pathetic than Reid, Pelosi and Obama in office is the fact there were enough Americans stupid enough to get them there in the first place.
7,000 is low turnout for this remarkable woman...very low. Mccain is hurting her, IMNSHO. that Dominatrix outfit she was wearing with him didn’t help her either.
She also said “time to reload.” Watch the MSM take off with that!
In the meantime, dump McLame.
I saw the video and the sight of her and McCain together again on a platform brings back really negative feelings, painful memories of ‘08.
Of her struggling with all her might to put some fire into McCain. Of McCain simply refusing to fight. Of her saying’ Why give up on Michigan? Todd and I will go to Michigan!’ And nothing, nothingcame of it.
Just painful memories of trying to drag McCain over a finish line he refused to even see. Refusing to attack Obama, refusing to fight. And I think about all welost because of him.
I’m not for or against him, sometimes he sounds good, but I’m just sayin’, seeing the two of them topgether again makes all the horrible nightmare of ‘08 come back again.
I haven't followed it here on FR, but my first thought was if MSNBC calls it 7,000, it could be more like 27,000.
You know you have defeated your enemy when you have a beer in their capitol.
'WE'RE NOT GOING TO SIT DOWN AND SHUT UP'
Hey Sarah, how about we also dump the RINO’s?
Have you finished re-paying John McCain yet? You did the honorable thing in supporting him. Now leave him to his own devices.
