After keeping a low profile in the 2012 election, Sarah Palin wants to pump it back up after debuting the new prop comedy act she performed earlier in March at CPAC. SarahPAC — Palin’s “official” PAC — has released its first video of the 2014 election cycle — Loaded for Bear. And yes, it does feature an actual bear roaring.
Palin’s endorsements from the massive wave election that saw the party take back the House of Representatives are highlighted — after a few members of the lamestream media explain how important Palin is, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) appears, saying the former governor of Alaska is “fearless… principled” and “she can pick winners.” The winners are then listed in order of their appeal to the far right: America’s Top Tea Partier Rand Paul (R-KY) is mentioned first, then Marco Rubio (R-FL), Tim Scott (R-SC), Pat Toomey (R-PA), Governor Nikki Haley (R-SC) and on.
Of course, Sharron Angle, Christine O’Donnell and Joe Miller — candidates Palin endorsed who lost — are not even mentioned.
The bulk of the video is a continuation of the attack on consultants that she began at CPAC. And when she says, “the last thing we need is Washington, DC vetting our candidates,” it’s clear that the real target of this video is Karl Rove, who has started a PAC designed to defeat unelectable Republicans in the primary. Palin seems determined to make sure that doesn’t happen.
