The new video by Sarah Palin's political action committee is a quick-moving montage of Sarah-backed candidates who won Tuesday, lots of flags, a roaring bear, and a glimpse of Sarah Palin herself. Not included: Christine O'Donnell and the other 'mama grizzlies' who lost.
But you’ll have to look sharp if you want to see them. The ad has the quick cuts and pace of a music video. Plus Mount Rushmore, lots of flags, the Constitution, and tri-corner hats. The result is a sort of Taylor-Swift-visits-colonial-Williamsburg vibe.
The video starts with a pulsating rock rhythm and a graphic of Alaska superimposed on a map of the continental 48 states. Then, there’s Nikki Haley, GOP governor-elect of South Carolina! And that’s Kelly Ayotte, New Hampshire’s Republican senator-elect! Look, it’s Allen West, the first Republican African-American Florida has elected to Congress in a century! Who’s that? Oh, that’s right – Marco Rubio, the rising tea party senatorial star from Florida. There he is with his wife. There he is with his kids. Why so much Marco?
