Now, the former Alaska governor and Tea Party darling is suggesting conservatives should focus on Senate races in Kentucky, South Carolina, Tennessee and Mississippi where the Republican incumbent is up for re-election next year.
"Friends, do not be discouraged by the shenanigans of D.C.'s permanent political class today," Palin posted on her Facebook page early Thursday, as the federal government reopened and hours after Democrat Cory Booker defeated Republican Steve Lonegan for Senate in New Jersey.
"Be energized," she said. "We're going to shake things up in 2014. Rest well tonight, for soon we must focus on important House and Senate races. Let's start with Kentucky — which happens to be awfully close to the other original Confederate Colonies of South Carolina, Tennessee and Mississippi — from sea to shining sea we will not give up."
"We've only just begun to fight" she continued. "We'll begin by taking back Mississippi which King George once held as his own, and we'll move on to the colonial powers that made their stand against George's tyranny over the Colonies and their Confederate Allies. We shall trumpet the Confederate Colony war cry: Don't you dare tread on us no more!"
