Sarah Palin's affair with the Tea Party is over - she cashed in her $100,000 and said good bye.

Examiner commented on Sarah Palin's speech in Arkansas:

Yesterday at an event hosted by the Arkansas Republican Party, Sarah Palin told the audience that the Tea Party is not strong enough to field its own candidates on a Tea Party ticket so they need to pick a Party, preferably the Republican Party.

"Now the smart thing will be for independents who are such a part of this Tea Party movement to, I guess, kind of start picking a party," Palin said. "Which party reflects how that smaller, smarter government steps to be taken? Which party will best fit you? And then because the Tea Party movement is not a party, and we have a two-party system, they’re going to have to pick a party and run one or the other: ‘R’ or ‘D’."

Sarah Palin is a shameless opportunist and is using the Tea Party movement as yet another political prop. She spins and lies to suit her own needs.

She said about her fee to speak at the Tea party convention:

"The speaker's fee will go right back into the cause. I'll be able to donate it to people and those events, those things that I believe in, that will help perpetuate the message, the message being: Government, you have constitutional limits. You better start abiding by them."

Sarah Palin made sure she had enough wriggle room when she said that. The teabaggers believed she would use the money to support their candidates. They do have candidates...

Palin marginalized the Tea Party with her saying that they are not capable of running their own candidate and then ridicules them some more by saying that its time to pick either the “R” or the “D”. Palin knows that they have already qualified candidates in some States such as Nevada where the Tea Party is now recognized and they are running their own candidate against Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV).

So, Sarah didn't commit to supporting any particular party, but has consistently endorsed and campaigned Republican candidates, apart from Rand Paul. The only reason she supports and donates to any candidates at all is to justify her SarahPac, a great money earner for herself and her "consultants".

The sentence "I'll be able to donate it to people and those events, those things that I believe in" really means that she will keep the money, thank you very much, because the only thing she believes in is her growing bank account. Perhaps she realized she can make more money from the Republicans...
