Palin congratulates her 'mama grizzlies'

(CNN) - Former vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin is congratulating the three candidates she endorsed in last night's primary races who won their contests:

"Congratulations to the commonsense conservative candidates who proved again last night that the voice of the American people cannot be ignored in Washington any longer. These candidates have the courage to stand up for their convictions, fight for what they know is right for their states and our nation, and buck politics as usual in order to put government back on the side of the people. It will be exciting to have these excellent candidates - especially those fearless GOP "mama grizzlies" - take their message straight through to November and into office."

    I'm sick of Palin and her ilk talking about "the American people" when she really only means the 20% of the population who are far right Neo-Cons who agree with her. During the Bush years, the Republicans not only routinely ignored the American people and did whatever they pleased, but also denounced anyone who so much as questioned them as being unpatriotic and aiding terrorists.

  2. Save America, impeach the treasonous republicans

    Do bears crap in the woods? There is no such thing as common sense conservatives. Their ideology is made up of a series of contradictions resulting from little intellectual understanding.

    She "endorsed" them because her staff told her to. Get real.

    Every one of "her momma grizzlies" is smarter than her and you do a disservice to your audience, CNN, by continuing to promote this phony.

    She's not a "Politician." She's a gold-digger.

    Do you ever expound on solutions to anything or are you only about cheerleading and spewing wingnut rhetoric on the sidelines? Exactly what have your so-called "common sense conservatives" done lately? That's right, nothing! "Mamma grizzlies", you say? I' hope you're not lumping Carly in that category; she's more like a snake.

    Hey, I know some of you liberals hate her but you have to look at the facts. How many Palin backed candidates have won? Compare/contrast that to the number of Obama backed candidates that have won. Is this a trend or a co winky dink? Makes you (at least some of you) think!

    "Mamma Grizzlies", human or beast, have very little empathy for those that ain't their own. Ever run up against one of them when their kids are competing against other kids ? They make Leo Durocher look like a sportsman.

    Palin, you are proof that stupid can't be fixed.

    You need to look at the election results.

    Except for your girlfriend in South Carolina the Democrats got more votes across the board than their Republican counterparts.

    The Democratic loser in last month's Kentucky primary got more votes than Rand Paul.

    Keep endorsing your low-lifes Palin. You're making sure the Democrats will sweep in November.

    Who really cares about Palin these days. She is simply irrelevant . Let her make all the money she can make and return to Alaska. I am happy that meaningful, smart republican women are stepping up to the plate, politically. If we are going to elect a republican, lets elect a smart one for our nation's sake. George Bush and then Sarah Palin? Enough. Don't get me "misunderestimated".

    It amazes me just how childish and ignorant this shrewish woman can sound.

    Yes, the voices especially cannot be ignored when you spend 81 million bucks on your own campaign – and that's just ONE of the three candidates.

    Sara Palin is OUT TO LUNCH,if she thinks that her twisted thoughts are the thoughts of the American people.

    Irony Alert: The one thing Sarah Palin actually is good at (besides saying stupid things?) Community organizing.

    If the Alaska idiot is referring to her endorsement of former Gov Bransted here in Iowa – her endorsement had nothing to do with his winning – the republicans in Iowa want "the good old days" when somehow in their thwarted memories things were better then -God forbid – "back then we didn't have them gays thinking they could get married here and we didn't have hardly any of them blacks in good ole Ioway!" Why do you think Iowa republicans love Steve King – one of the most ignorant and bigoted representatives we have ever had here. Bransted was a shoo-in with that kind of voter thinking.

  21. How's That Dopey, Mangey Thing Workin' For Ya Sarah?

    Does this include the Mama Grizzlies like Palin who only complete half their term (a quitter) and then excpect full credit for a job half done?

    Or Fiorina who drove HP into the ground only to make the company unrecognizable to the sons of the founding family?

    Please ask Palin to go take care of her "special needs" child, stuff her face and hibernate like a good Mama Grizzly should!!!

    This woman and her "cutesy" appellations are so childish. "Pitbulls with Lipstick", hopey, changey", "you betcha", "drill, baby, drill". She's just full of them, isn't she?? Now it's "Mama Grizzlies". Grow up, you dimwit!!

    "Mama Grizzlies?"....I heard Palin when she first made this ridiculous statement. She sounded like a high schooler giving her first speech in class....HELLO America! Republicans are playing catch-up with putting forth women candidates/leaders. The Democrat SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE is a woman. Lets not forget Hillary Clinton, Senator & Secretary of State, HHS Secretary Sebelius was a Governor (and Chair of the Democratic Governors Association) and HLS Secretary Napolitano was a Governor. Why are Republicans acting like they are the party of "women" Democrats have been doing this for years. Palin is as popular as she is because Republicans were so shocked that they nominated a female VP. Big Whoop! Democrats did it way back in 1984.
