Sarah Palin has gone against her Momma "Tea Party" Grizzlies (some of which who actually look like grizzlies) by rejecting the Tea Party candidate, Dan Liljenquist, in favor of incumbent Orrin Hatch for the Utah Senate race. Mrs. Palin made her endorsement Tuesday on the Cryptkeeper Greta Van Sustren's show on the Fox News Channel.
Palin went on to say the following:
"I want him to win," Palin said of Hatch. "I join Sean Hannity, Mark Levin and other conservatives who would like to see Mr. `Balanced Budget' return to Washington."
"He's part of that 1 percent you hear about -- not the 1 percent that's mocked and criticized in the press lately, but the 1 percent of national politicians who I believe should be reelected, sent to Congress because of his commitment to see a balanced budget in the United States of America. He wants to apply that common sense economic principle of balanced budget, fiscal responsibility and I want to see him reelected. So my endorsement of him will differ from others, of course, in that race in Utah -- no different in many sense when we talk about endorsements in Texas."
