Sarah Palin Channel’s Latest Video Is Just A Bunch Of Word Salad (VIDEO)

Sarah Palin launched her own digital news channel.

The latest video on Sarah Palin’s eponymous online network was billed as a rebuttal to Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-MA) Netroots Nation speech, but some of Palin’s points were just too incoherent to follow.

In the video posted Friday, Palin responded point by point to eleven “commandments” that Warren outlined in her speech to the progressive confab last month. Warren’s sixth point, that fast food workers deserve a living wage, drew so much scorn from Palin that she stumbled over her words a few times.

“We believe — wait, I thought fast food joints — don’t you guys think that they’re like of the devil or something?” Palin said. “Liberals, you want to send those evil employees who would dare work at a fast food joint that you just don’t believe in — I don’t know, I thought you wanted to send them to purgatory or something. So they all go vegan. And wages and picket lines, I don’t know, they’re not often discussed in purgatory are they? I don’t know, why are you even worried about fast food wages? Well, we believe — an America where minimum wage jobs, they’re not lifetime gigs, they’re stepping stones to sustainable wages. It teaches work ethic.”

The former Republican vice presidential nominee had an equally rambling rebuttal to Warren’s final assertion that “women have a right to fight for their bodies.”

“We believe women have a right to their bodies, just like babies have a right to their living, breathing bodies nestled in a mother’s womb,” Palin said. “Hey, and anyone who wants contraception, more power to you. Continue to freely buy any kind you want, no one’s stopping you. We’ll fight for the right of private businesses, including Hobby Lobby, to work with you, figure out health care coverage yourselves any way the owners of those businesses — that they built themselves — any way they want to.”

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
