Palin: Tea Party is 'the future of politics'

[cnn-photo-caption image= caption ="Sarah Palin released a new web video on Tuesday."](CNN) - Sarah Palin has struck a campaign chord again, so to speak, with a new web video replete with sweeping images of Tea Party rallies and orchestral music usually reserved in politics for the glowing profile ads candidates use to kick off their campaigns.

The 80-second video, entitled "Tea Party," primarily features clips of Palin's speech in March to Tea Party rally-goers in Searchlight, Nevada.

"This party that we call the Tea Party is the future of politics," Palin proclaims as the video concludes.

The web video highlights Palin's continuing efforts to establish herself as a leader of the conservative movement. It comes one week after Christine O'Donnell, the Tea Party-endorsed, Palin-backed candidate in Delaware's GOP Senate primary, secured a major upset victory over Rep. Mike Castle, the party-backed establishment politician. No politicians–other than Palin–appear in the video.

"It is just so inspiring to real people-not politicos, not inside the beltway professionals-come out and stand up and speak out for common sense conservative principles," Palin says.

Palin tweeted about the video in similar fashion to her first campaign-style video, released in June: "Enjoy the video! And please support commonsense conservative candidates who will work with you, and for you…"

The video Palin released in June celebrated women in the conservative movement and touted her support for "Mama Grizzlies," a term she coined for female politicians who exhibit toughness and stand firm for conservative values.

    If this nut is every appointed/elected to anything to do with our country, that will be the end of democracy, is Ahmadinejad a prophet, that's what's he's predicting. let's beat the enemy both of them Palin and Ahmadinejad, don't elect her, he ain't right. Yahoo we win. Not a dime's worth of difference between Palin and Ahmadinejad, both have sociopathic personalities.

    The tea party is doomed and Sarah Palin is leading it down the wrong path. Her claim fo fame is being a quitter. Her daughter's claim to fame is being an unwed mother. Is this who we want to represent our country? Please stop this madness and stop listening to her folksy,unflattering remarks. The whole world is making fun of us for being so stupid. DO YOU PEOPLE NOT GET IT? This uneducated woman is from the hillbilly capitol of the world-=Wasilla, Alaska. Shame on you Alaska for exposing us to this. Please do us a favor and seceed from the union.

    Why would anyone believe a word this idiot has to say? She doesn't make sense when she speaks, her voice is screechy to the point of causing convulsions and if she wasn't so good-looking she would have been out of the spotlight two years ago when she LOST the election. But her braindead supporters have made her rich and she just won't shut up, so we sane Americans have to put up with her nonsense for God knows how long. She's a dimwit, a dingbat, an airhead, help...I'm running out of nouns to describe this flake.

    The TeaPoopers are the future of politics???

    Ladies and gentlemen, we are gathered here today to bid farewell to the great nation of America. Let us not remember America in her waning years as the very life was drawn from her by the GOP. Rather, let's remember her in her glory years before the GOP, the group determined to destroy this nation, came to power. Let us remember when sense, sensibility and courage guided the flame of liberty and courage of conviction.

    We fought the good fight against the evil that is the Tea Party. We fought to preserve the Constitution and keep this country strong, both goals that the Tea Party undermined from the true Americans. We shouted from the rooftops about the destructive force known as the Tea Party and the GOP, but our warnings went unheeded. The Stupid robbed us of our liberties, our rights and put into power their theocratic dictatorship ruled by stupidity and bigotry.

    Friends, let us remember that as long as there is one true American in this country, the ideals of what was once a great nation will not die. No, this country may go through the hard times, our people may be stomped under the Tea Party's idiotic theocracy, but We The People will one day rise up and take our nation back - just like we did when Bush and Cheney and their ilk were kicked out of office.

    Do not despair, fellow Americans. We The People will NOT be undone by the evildoers of the Tea Party! We The People will NOT go quietly into the night! We The People will NOT disappear and allow the stupid to reign.

    America may not be what she should be, but take heart, my fellow Americans - she will one day be strong again once the Tea Party is gone!

    The web video highlights Palin's continuing efforts to establish herself as a leader of the conservative movement.

    She has made sure she will be the 2012 Presential Nominee. You have to give it to her she really know how to work those Tea Baggers KKK without the hood and has position herself as the Republicans leader and she is going to take the Republicans party right down with her.

    Go figure! Sara Palin/O'Donnelle2012

    Just the thought of Sara Palin being President is a real scary thing. She would have people like O'Donnelle on her ticket or have this O'Donnelle working with her in the White House.

    If the Tea Party is the future of politics, then America is in serious trouble of becoming the laughing stock of the entire world.

    So basically we have a future full of racist who want to hold onto power and who support the rich. Sounds like the Republicans to me.

    This stupid woman still think tea party is a big deal. No way. Only a very small number of right nut tea baggers republicans are part of this extreme and radical movement. Nothing positive about it. What a waste of time. Democrats will keep the senate and the house come November thanks to the tea bag people. They don't represent the mainstream middle class american. They small government cries mean get rid of the department of education, privatize social security and medicare, shut down the government, less wall street and big oil regulations, tax cut for special interest wealthies and millionaires, people can die without insurance, no government intervention. What a stupidity. These radicals highjack the republican party. Their endorsed candidates share all these extreme views and will lose badly in November.

    Tea baggers the future of politics? On what planet? LMAO!

    This statement coming from a person that submitted herself to a "witch's exorcism" by allowing the "laying on of hands" by some nut-bag pentacostal grifter from a primitive African village simply because he declared he's a pastor "doin' jeezuz work".

    Do something intellegent in Nov America...Vote straight ticket (D).

    I wish that this annoying and failed politican would go back and stay in Alaska. This movement doesnt care about the oridnary American – it is only interested in protected the rich and upper class.

    Oh, the liberals will be in a snit over this but we love it. The only liberal with anything near the drawing of crowds capability is obama and the last couple of speeches, they have had to quit charging for entrance and go out and get people out of class rooms and off the street to sit in the audience for free. There were still empty seats.
