Speaking in Arkansas to Republican Party activists, Sarah Palin said the tea party movement is “a grand movement.  I love it because it’s all about the people.”

“Now the smart thing will be for independents who are such a part of this Tea Party movement to, I guess, kind of start picking a party,” Palin said. “Which party reflects how that smaller, smarter government steps to be taken? Which party will best fit you? And then because the Tea Party movement is not a party, and we have a two-party system, they’re going to have to pick a party and run one or the other: ‘R’ or ‘D’.”

Palin said that the Republican platform best meshed with the Tea Party’s creed. However, she mentioned that her husband Todd was not a registered Republican and that the party should be open to embracing independents.

Todd is certainly not a Republican, having been a registered member of the Alaska Independence Party until 2002, a party that is so patriotic, it advocates for Alaska to secede from the union, although they craftily say their goal is simply “a vote on secession.” Maybe when Alaska becomes its own country it can ignore what the rest of the world is saying about global warming.

Palin used her 45-minute speech and the Q&A session that featured pre-selected questions from the crowd to sound off on everything from what she called the “snake-oil science” of global warming to politicians who are “addicted to ‘O-P-M’-other people’s money.”
