Palin on Facebook: Obama's Message to America: The Era of Big Government is Back, Now Help Me Pay For It

ABC reports:

Sarah Palin waited exactly one night to launch a pointed attack on the president's State of the Union address, laced with creative imagery, and creative history. [excuse me, ABC, how long should she have waited?] She mocked the president's slogan of "Winning the Future." She noted the initials are "WTF" and then observed there were "a lot of WTF moments through that speech." [...] Palin went on to criticize the president for proposing more spending with not nearly enough spending cuts.

Theater regrets Palin beheading reference; removes it from production. What new civility? A Montana community theater staging Gilbert and Sullivan's The Mikado threw in a line calling for the beheading of Sarah Palin. Conservative patrons have had to endure many such moments for years, as it is smugly assumed that only liberals are into the arts. The theater seemed surprised by the outcry that followed.

Proof that liberal bias makes you stupid? BreitbartTV reports:

In their zeal to slam Sarah Palin, Christians and conservatives, MSNBC and Rachel Maddow reported a story from a satire website called It doesn't take too much research to discover that the site is like "The Onion" and everything on it is a lampoon-style story.

MSNBC has scrubbed the segment from their website.

Palin kicked off Reagan's 100th birthday bash. Palin says Obama's policies have U.S. on road to ruin:

In a tribute to former President Ronald Reagan, the potential 2012 White House contender said leaders in Washington had lost sight of the values that made Reagan a Republican icon and a hero to conservatives -- a belief in limited government, low taxes and personal freedoms. "This is not the road to national greatness, it is the road to ruin," Palin said of the growth in government spending, budget deficits, joblessness and housing foreclosures under Obama. "The federal government is spending too much, borrowing too much, growing and controlling too much," she said.

Sarah Palin Blasts Obama's Handling of Egypt -- Former Alaska Governor Says 3 a.m. Crisis Call Went "Right to the Answering Machine":

"This is that 3 a.m. White House phone call, and it seems for many of us trying to get that information from our leader in the White House, it seems that that call went right to the answering machine."

Palin's reference to a 3 a.m. phone call referred to the 2008 bruising primary battle between now-President Obama and now-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton over responsiveness to unexpected foreign policy crises.

Exclusive: Governor Palin Visits Reagan Country

by Andrew Coffin

Sometimes it's the questions you don't ask that are telling. Case in point: the New York Times account of our event with Governor Palin last night.

Young America's Foundation hosted Governor Sarah Palin for the keynote address at the opening banquet of our Reagan 100 weekend. This weekend marks the 100th anniversary of Ronald Reagan's birth. Celebrations are taking place across the country, but this is a particularly significant weekend for our organization -- since the spring of 1998 we've been preserving Ronald Reagan's beloved Ranch home in the mountains north of Santa Barbara, Rancho del Cielo. Today Ronald Reagan's Western White House is a place where young people come to be inspired by the life, the ideas, the character of Ronald Reagan.

For gorgeous, candid photos of Palin riding confident in the saddle along trails Reagan rode, with her family and with Young Americans for Freedom, visit BigGovernment.

Defying stereotypes:

No great surprise here, really; Palin has quietly backed the end of DADT and expressed support for conservative gays and lesbians in the past. Speaking here with David Brody from the Christian Broadcasting Network and excerpted by Breitbart TV, Palin doesn't endorse GOProud but does defend their attendance at CPAC, and argues that the value of events such as CPAC is to debate the issues and provide as much information as possible to attendees.
