Just when you thought we had seen the last of the Alaskan quitter, she comes back looking for more attention. It’s unfortunate that we have to give her that attention, but when Sarah Palin whines about something, it’s worth noting.
During a speech in front of 1,000 people at a Republican Party of Florida dinner on Thursday, Palin complained about the Occupy Wall Street movement and insulted the protesters. At first, it seemed Palin was about to praise the movement.
“This Occupy Wall Street has — of course, when it first kind of got off the ground, people looked at it, I looked at it and was thinking these folks, they feel legitimate indignation about the Wall Street bailouts, financial institutions behaving recklessly and then we get stuck with the bill. And then three years later, many of us still quite ticked off because we don’t have assurances that those who caused the financial collapse in the first place, that they are being held accountable, and that it won’t happen again.”
But praise of a movement supported by a majority of the American people was something Palin found herself incapable of doing. She decided to criticize the protesters.
“They say ‘Wall Street fat cats got a bailout so now I want one too.’ And the correct answer is no one is entitled to a bailout. The American dream, our foundation, is about work ethic and empowerment, not entitlement. I would like to know that my federal government understands a vision that believes in empowerment versus entitlement. To see this struggle in action, look no further than the Occupy Wall Street movement that is going on.”

Sarah Palin needs to stop talking and go back to Alaska. It’s simply jaw dropping to hear her criticize OWS protesters and ignore the wealthy, greedy banks that stole hundreds of billions of dollars from taxpayers. OWS is about making the big banks stand accountable for their actions and give back what they wrongly took from the American people. She doesn’t know the first thing about work ethic. Palin quit her job as governor and she can’t even write her book. Caribou Barbie clearly sides with the rich and if she had a decent bone in her body, she’d be calling on the banks and the wealthy to stop stealing from hard working Americans. But she won’t, because defending the wealthy is what she gets paid for.
