She used the word "victory" also in the context of the actions Congress took (although she was displeased by aspects of it so not 100% victory), and not just the Tea Party.
You seem to be the one being disingenuous.
Obama and the dems wanted to raise taxes now and actually spend more, so how is this not "a step in the right direction"?
She only repeated Greta's word "victory" and only used in in the context of the debate. I'm not suggesting this was a good deal, and neither was she. The author and the Palin bashers here misconstrue the discussion she and Greta had, listen for yourself.
