Via Facebook today, Sarah Palin took on Vice President Joe Biden over comments he made about her support for Conservative Party candidate Doug Hoffman in the NY-23 race.
At a rally over the weekend, Biden called out Palin over her approach to energy policy. Biden’s comments, as ABC News reported them:
“Sarah Palin thinks the answer to energy is ‘Drill, baby, drill.’ ” Biden said…Then he leaned in to the microphone: “It’s a lot more complicated, Sarah.”
On Facebook today, Palin seemed eager to step into the ring again with the man she battled for the vice-presidency last year. From her post:
There’s one way to tell Vice President Biden that we’re tired of folks in Washington distorting our message and hampering our nation’s progress: Hoffman, Baby, Hoffman!
More from the post:
As the vice president knows, I have always advocated an all-of-the-above approach to American energy independence. Among other things, my alternative energy goal for Alaska sits at 50 percent because Alaska reached more than 20 percent during my term in office. The Obama-Biden administration, on the other hand, recently announced a renewable goal of only 25 percent. However, domestic drilling should remain a top priority in order to meet America’s consumption and security needs.
The rest of her post uses votes Biden cast in the 1970s and quotes from Ann Coulter to make Palin’s case that she is in the mainstream of the energy debate while Biden is an extremist.
