Sarah Palin says she is not afraid to call out fellow Republicans when she thinks they have been "part of the problem." On Monday night, Palin accuses Republican candidate for President Rick Perry of engaging in "crony capitalism." Perry, as governor of Texas, mandated that young girls get a vaccination for the HPV virus in an executive order. Perry is criticized for this in part because of his connections to the drug manufacturer Merck.

I’m not sure that Sarah is right on this one. How can motive be proven here?
That’s interesting because Palin endorsed Perry after the Gardasil kerfuffle.
The establishment trembles in fear. (and rage)
I’ve been saying it all along. Politics as we know it is over and the “conventional wisdom” no longer applies.
Sarah caught double-speaking? Say it ain’t so..... /s =.=
And thus pops the delusion that Palin will not run and endorse Perry instead.
Interesting back story from her on the national full court press Merck was engaged in to get this drug to state markets.
I hope RealClearPolitics linked to the complete transcript, because the contention that Palin asserted “Rick Perry has partcipated in Crony Capitalism” is a figment of imagination or result of careless listening/reading.
Were any laws broken? Does this differ from the behavior of any other candidate?
Even more interesting considering the fact that Palin was a paid TV spokesperson for the company (Spenard) that got the contract to build the ice-rink to nowhere in Wasilla when she was mayor and other contracts when she was governor.
Perry is a 1/2 Tea Party 1/2 insider. That is why the elitists are moving to Romeny. IF PALIN gets into the race, the insiders will support Perry as the compromise candidate of Romney the insider and Palin outsider purist.
Michele Bachman looked foolish and ugly last night and very unpresidential.
Her comments to Perry were way out of line.
She appears to be working with Mittens.
She gave him a BIG KISS and never attack him.
She is looking for a VP spot now.
Time for her to crawl back under her wasilla rock. She is destructive to the effort.
She as sat on the pot to long with no issue.
Since "Alaska's resources belong to Alaskans" why didn't you tax you and your husband's commercial fishing enterprise? Are the salmon of Alaska not "Alaska's resources?"
If you are such a fighter for justice, why did you quit when the going got tough in Alaska and do you think whatever reforms you implemented will have any staying power since you left after fulfilling only half your term?
Sarah if Perry is a crony capitalist, and you imply that Perry is for sale for as little as $5,000, why did you endorse him in the Republican Primary after he issued the EO?
Sarah why did you say there was "no way you would deport the 12-14 million illegals because it would be inhumane" and that you were for a path to citizenship in an interview with Univision in 2008 but just a couple years later you agreed with Bill O'Reilly that you would build a fence from Brownsville to San Diego and deport all 12 million?
Palin had only the illusion of virtue as her strong point.
Play the video. About 1:20 see describes what happens then states “That’s Crony Capitalism.”
She didn't, but Greta Van Susteren did. Palin's remarks are more focused on Perry's chief of staff. Palin: The Problem With This Country Is People Are Afraid to Call Members of Their Own Party Out on 'Crony Capitalism' - Van Susteren Transcript - Sept 12, 2011
