Palin releases web video with campaign feel

[cnn-photo-caption image= http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2010/images/07/08/art.palin.cnn.jpg caption =" Palin is out with her first Web video that has the feel of a campaign commercial."]

(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.

    Moron, moron, moron, that is the only way to describe this idiot. She is dumber than a box of rocks, and the really sad part is there is a small number of even dumber people who think this is idiot is smart enough to be President. God, help us all.
    Sarah, do your country a big favor, go back to the hole in the ground that you slithered out of and get back in it. Stay there, and never never open your stupid mouth again.

    Palin – oh please do run. It would certainly ensure us Dems would kick butt on election day!!

    This shouldn't be a surpise to anyone. Sarah is always promoting herself and campaigning. She doesn't campaign for anything except opportunities. There is no strategy or long-term goal. She's just looking for anything she can that will keep her in front of the camera, and keep the money and adulation from those who are poorly-educated and naive (birds of a feather) to keep pouring in.

    As if this Palin woman knows what "common sense" is. She is a total dimwit and if she runs for President in 2012, I couldn't be happier!!

    She and people like her scare me. I hope the people of this country are smart enough to not allow her kind to gain any sort of power.

    "This year will be remembered as a year when common sense conservative women get things done for our country,"

    Maybe, but what will you and the dim bulbs that follow you do?

    Are there actually conservative women out there trying to get things done for our country, as opposed to your uninformed self and those who follow you?

    You will know that Palin is really serious about running for President if you see her sign up for a world geography course at the local Community College.

    I like her much better as a sort of evangelist for women who feel they get no credit for all the things they do and the burdens they bear in life. People who also don't really know very much about the many complex issue we face in this country – but who like Palin "know what they believe."

    If only the world were so simple that we could just go with our gut, to solve all our problems. How'd that work for Bush? He prayed a lot, so we are told, but then he had Cheney to tell him what to do, when it came to making real decisions. The lord may or may not have whispered in his ear, but Cheney pulled the strings.

    Gov. Palin.. You can't break out of the 30% support area. Give us all a break, and throw in teh towel. We don't want to hear you talk any more.

    This is NOT a campaign commercial. This is Palin attempting to take credit for the expected success of conservative women running for office this year, pure and simple.

  14. Sarah over Obama any day

    Never thought I d say this but I will now take Sarah over Obama any day – Obama looks smarter, talks smarter, but get nothing done. At least Sarah will show up for work. With Obama he is on the campaign trail; jetting off to win the olympics for Chicago, playing golf, throwing parties in the Whitre House going on vacation, etc etc. All this while the country slowly slips back into a recession; the Afghan war is raging; the Gulf is being destroyed; the unemployment rate stays high, the dollar weakens, and immigration problems persist. All Obama does is blame others, whether it be Bush-the GOP- the State of Arizona, or Michael Steele. Enough already. It is no wonder he make important recess appointments; he is not in his office long enough to get the work done during normal hours.

    She continues to be so presumtive. She is a danger to our freedom, and she presents it in a way to appear to be the opposite of that.

    I only hope she sticks around because she'll torpedo anyone who sides with her. Otherwise, we need to get rid of politicians like her. She's a liar, a cheat, and crooked as hell according to her stints in Alaska. Now she has decided to make herself a celebrity by speaking in soundbites, saying whatever the people standing in front of her want to here, and constantly acting like a victim. She just wants to be rich and famous and sell books. Just looking at her horrible political track record scares me that some uneducated peoples out there actually support this crook.

    I have to say common sense women and Sarah Palin is an oxymoron.
    Also in your list of reasons that she has remained firmly in the national spotlight, you left out CNN (unless you consider it is a social media outlet). If ignored, maybe this loser will go away.

    I don't understand how the Dems can find fault with Sarah Palin's inexperience, when she has much more than Obama! What has he ever managed? Community activist? Wow! Impressive! Sarah was mayor, and then govenor, despite the fact that she didn't finish her term! She has been in charge of a state, unlike Obama, who is screwing up this country royally! I just wonder when he is out of office (the sooner the better!) if we will ever get back to where we should be! Sure, Bush made mistakes, but Obama has compounded them, and still blames Bush for all his problems! Get a life, Barack – wake up and smell the coffee! You don't have a clue as to how to be a president! You did promise change, but this is ridiculous, and those who voted for you must be in shock!

    Why does CNN insist on keeping this loser relevant. If she sneeze's, CNN is there. Sure, FOX does it, they have no one else to prop up, but never in the history of politics has the loser of an election been so celebrated. And, losing the race doesn't make her a loser, her lack of real education and credibility. she doesn't read and can't name a newspaper she's looked at., c'mon. Her 15 minutes of fame has gone on long enough. CNN, please cover some real news again.

    I really hope that she runs in 2012. Her arrogance coupled with her stupidity will will remind most Americans why we hate her.

    Lord, help us! "Common sense" and Sarah Palin do not belong in the same thought process! When will she implode or explode from her absence of knowledge, intelligence and - yes - any sense at all!?
