Palin weighs in on Pennsylvania special election

(CNN) - Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin announced her support Monday for Pennsylvania Republican Tim Burns.

"I'm proud to offer my support to Tim Burns in his campaign to bring real job creation to Pennsylvania's 12th district," Palin said in a post on her Facebook page. The former GOP vice presidential hopeful also pointed to Burns' involvement in the Tea Party movement as a reason for her endorsement.

Burns will face Democrat Mark Critz in a May 18 special election for the House seat held for decades by the late Democratic Rep. John Murtha.

    Mrs. Palin, if left you your own devices I bet you couldn't even SPELL "Pennsylvania." You know NOTHING of my home state. Mind your own business.

    I KNOW I'm not the only one that has read the answers on the Ticker
    regarding Tea Partiers, Palin, and all who adore them without noticing
    that there is ANGER on the other side too!!!! Just because we don't
    travel the Country, screaming and "hollerin" terrible names, does not
    mean we are not tired of this c–p.
    SO, before the Republicans get too wrapped up in the "love fest", they
    need to notice that "NO" can also mean a "NO VOTE" for them, and
    I hope it happens. We CANNOT spend two more years on their
    pettiness waiting for them to remember WHO PAYS THEM! How
    many employees can tell their bosses NO, and keep their jobs. We ALL
    pay their salaries and their health care, so GET TO WORK--NOW!
