Palin on why Republicans in Alaska don’t like her

On Fox News Tuesday, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin likened what’s going on with Sen. Ted Cruz with what happened to her in Alaska:

“Am I surprised that RINOs would turn on one who would stand strong on [conservative] planks? No, because some of us have lived through that,” Palin said. “I’ve always been very, very independent. Up here in Alaska, it’s why I’m not in the good graces of the Alaskan political party when it comes to republican machinery.”

Palin spent much time Tuesday urging Cruz to continue to try to delay a Senate vote on whether or not to defund the Affordable Care Act as part of a budget package.

In an attempt to delay the vote, Cruz and Sen. Mike Lee spent more than 20 hours in front of a mic on the Senate floor. Here’s her tweet from last night as he was speaking:

    I saw the interview, also the interview with Neal Cavuto the same day. Sarah made a comment to Neal that was of interest to me. It was to the effect that we don’t need a third party, we have it already. Democrats, Republican Establishment and Republican conservatives. Out of the entire interview for both Neal and Sean, what I remember the most.

    What saddens me is that she still stands up for John McCain.

    Pretty sure that should be a capitol “R” on Republican machinery. I somehow doubt she knows the difference, but it’s an important one.
