DNC Thanks Sarah Palin For Strange Iowa Speech

The Democratic National Committee on Saturday thanked Sarah Palin for the strange, erratic speech at the Iowa Freedom Summit.

During her speech, Palin defended her most recent media stunts, like the photo of her son using the family dog as a step stool and a picture of her holding a sign that read, “Fuc_ You Michael Moore.”

The former vice presidential candidate told conservatives that if they want to defeat Hillary Clinton in 2016, they will have to defend the GOP’s candidates.

“We don’t sit on our thumbs this next time when one of our own is being crucified and falsely accused of whatever the hip accusation of the day happens to be — racism, sexism, whatever,” Palin said, according to video posted by Right Wing Watch.

“It is they who point a finger not realizing that they have triple that amount of fingers pointing right back at them revealing that they are the ones who really discriminate and divide on color and class and sex,” Palin said about the left. “We call them out. We don’t let them get away with it.”

During Palin’s speech, both conservatives and liberals mocked her speech as incoherent.

On Saturday evening following Palin’s speech, the DNC issued a short statement responding to her speech.

“Thank you!” DNC Communications Director Mo Elleithee said in the statement.

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.
