Governor Palin talked with Sean Hannity last night about the importance of the midterm elections. Responding to a videoclip of Daily Beast founder Tina Brown criticizing Obama, she said Tina was “a day late and a dollar short”. She went on to talk about the hypocrisy and double standards of liberal women, a subject she has discussed before. (See video and partial transcript below.) Governor Palin said liberal women’s sympathies are with the wrong party.
She emphasized how important it is to vote for Republicans in this year’s Senate race. “This go round, the very worst Republican is better than the very best Democrat.” She said that a vote for a Democrat Senate candidate is a vote for a continuation of Barack Obama’s failed policies. She called Harry Reid and Obama “ultra liberal radicals” and said a vote for a liberal is a vote for Reid and Obama.
Governor Palin said that the GOP was handed a “gift of gold” yesterday when Obama said that the Senate Democrats running for reelection voted with him. She warned the GOP that they should capitalize on that statement.
Hannity mentioned the dance that Democrat candidates are doing in their effort not to be identified with Obama. Governor Palin said it was “cracking me up” here in Alaska where “phoney baloney” Mark Begich was claiming to have opposed Obama when he in fact voted with Obama 97 % of the time. She emphasized the importance of defeating Democrat Senate incumbents like Begich and Landrieau and particularly those in Red States.
From her May 21, 2014 appearance on Hannity:

HANNITY: You know, it’s pretty funny. I said this during this battle over Sharia and these Nigerian school girls taken, that it seems the left’s definition of what feminism today is you got to support abortion and demand free birth control, because when women are really being oppressed, their voices, at least for women living under Sharia, have been virtually silent, have they not.
PALIN: Well, yes, this is, you know, more application of that double standard, though, that raging liberals are known for here. As I had suggested in that post, a liberal can attack a conservative woman, but it’s a war on women if you were to question a liberal woman.
And it’s not just gender, though. It’s race, also. Obviously, liberals — you know, they can attack T.W. Shannon (ph) and Allen West and some of these good guys that are out there fighting for the right reasons, but heaven forbid, you’re going to be called a racist if you were to question Barack Obama’s failed policies.
HANNITY: Well, it’s basically standard operating procedure now at NBC News. I still to this day — I don’t get the controversy about Mitt Romney having resumes, quote, “binders” on women. I still don’t get how Sandra Fluke thinks that if she goes to George Washington University Law School, that somehow, she thinks that the public ought to pay for her birth control. I have a hard time understanding that mindset. Can you help me out?
PALIN: Well, of course, you do because you’re a common sense conservative who just wants fairness in this game now that’s being played in the arena of politics. And that game is the left will get — grasp anything that you say that can be taken out of context and perceived as either being racist or sexist, and they charge you with that. And that way, the debate, the conversation is stopped, and they get to claim victory then on that issue because they can’t argue the issues, Sean.
Obviously, the issues that are so important to Americans have to do with the failed policies of the far left. They can’t win on arguing their points of their policy, so they have to go on the semantics and the comments that are made by a conservative.
