Palin in Wisconsin: Obama policies a bullet-train to bankruptcy

By David Ferguson

Sarah Palin appeared before a mixed crowd of Tea Party supporters and protesters waving signs bearing slogans like "Union thug with lipstick" at a rally in Madison, Wisconsin today. According to the Wisconsin Sentinel-Journal. the former Alaska governor expressed her support for Governor Scott Walker and his plan to limit the rights of Wisconsin's public employee unions, and urged union members to stop fighting Walker's controversial "Budget Repair Bill".

"Hey, folks," she told the assembled crowd, "He's trying to save your jobs and pensions."

Palin aimed barbs at the Obama administration, ridiculing the president's interest in alternative fuels and high-speed rail, "We're flat broke, but he thinks these solar shingles and really fast trains will magically save us. So now he's shouting, all aboard the bullet-train to bankruptcy."

The former Miss Alaska runner-up also heaped scorn on the national Republican Party, questioning their commitment to cutting federal spending. She cited the University of Wisconsin's national-championship-winning women's hockey team, saying that Congressional Republicans should learn to "fight like a girl".
