Gov. Palin A Liberal? Sarah Joins Progressive Movement

Sarah Palin’s Tea Party – Convention Speech w/Progressive Commentary – Take Back Talking Points episode 10

February 10, 2010

This episode of Take Back Talking Points, the progressive talk show featuring me, Zach (FeelFreeToArgue), and Brendon (funkalunatic), we do a play by play commentary on Sarah Palin’s speech to the Tea Party National Convention. $500 a ticket.

This episode, we criticize Sarah quite unfairly with our Gotcha journalism, hardly listen to her at all, moan and whine like the liberals we are, and discuss the implications of the tea party movement. Is this Republican rebranding, an Astroturf movement hoping to turn our Coke versus Pepsi democratic process to a new paradigm of Pepsi, Coke, and New Coke? Or are they a truly independent third party grassroots movement and all that that entails, including possibly splitting the Republican vote and marginalizing them, or driving them farther to the right?
