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.”
