Palin releases web video with campaign feel

(CNN) – In what has the familiar feel of a classic campaign commercial, Sarah Palin's political action committee is out with its first web video Thursday that is heavily laden with the former Alaska governor's appearances at political events and Tea Party rallies over the past year.

The nearly two-minute video, called "Mama Grizzlies," features a portion of a speech Palin gave before the Susan B. Anthony List in May, during which she told the anti-abortion rights women's group, "It seems like it's kind of a mom awakening in the last year and a half where women are rising up and saying, 'No, we've had enough already.'"

"This year will be remembered as a year when common sense conservative women get things done for our country," Palin is also heard saying. "All across this country, women are standing up and speaking out for common sense solutions."

The video also celebrates the former Alaska governor as well as her female supporters, splicing together several images of Palin delivering speeches before cheering crowds, sitting for television interviews, and shaking enthusiastic supporters' hands – all amidst inspirational music.

"We're gonna do something about this. We're going to turn this thing around," Palin tells a roaring crowd as she sounds familiar themes of a stump speech. "We're going to get our country back on the right track, no matter what it takes, to respect the will of the people. Look out, Washington, cause there's a whole stampede of elephants crossing the line, and the E.T.A. stampeding through is November 2, 2010."

"Lot of women coming together," Palin says as the video comes to a close.

Palin posted the new video on her Facebook page early Thursday morning, telling supporters to "Enjoy the video and please support commonsense conservative candidates who will work with you and for you to take back our country!"

The former Republican vice presidential nominee has remained firmly in the national spotlight since resigning her post as governor one year ago, thanks to television appearances, a national book tour, speaking engagements, and social media outlets.

Update 3:30 p.m. ET: Sarah Palin released a statement to CNN about her new web video.

"Sending my own message, minus the media filter, is a valuable way to remind voters that they have great choices in these upcoming mid-term elections. The tools I'll use, like this energetic video that showcases commonsense Constitutional conservative women, will highlight a significant movement in our nation as we advance ever closer to what will be historic 2010 elections," Palin said.

    Oh please Palin!!! She is the last person this country needs making decisions. GW started this mess and B.O. is contributing to it. It is time for people to realize it is not just one of the parties.... it is BOTH of them that have let us down!

    Alot of what Palin says would make sense if she didn't have that shoot from the hip attitude. It is time for her to move forward and stop the sour grapes attitude from the '08 election.

    Peace!

    Common sense anti-abortion Conservative women saying they have had enough...that's an oxymoron if I ever heard one. They have had enough of even having the right to consider abortion let alone have one? No one has told them they have to have an abortion. Instead, they want to dictate to other women what they must do when they get pregnant under tragic circumstances. Where is the freedom in that? Besides that, what do they want to happen to a woman who gets an abortion? First degree murder? Someone needs to ask Palin some real questions about what she says.

    Anybody following this woman is an idiot and any country that listens to this woman is in trouble. She is shallow and spits divisive and dangerous rhetoric.
