Sarah Palin responds from Facebook to Mark Begich retort on residency.

THE YET to be announced senatorial campaign of Sarah Palin against Mark Begich has prematurely begun through the media. We eagerly await the tussle that’s sure to come when Senator Begich asks Sarah Palin if she can see Edward Snowden from her house.

When the news was reported that Mrs. Palin might be mulling a run for the Senate from her home state of Alaska, Senator Begich questioned her residency, then quipped, “She quit on Alaska.”

“I don’t know if she’s a resident,” he said. “She’s been away from Alaska a lot and has probably lost touch with what’s going on.” [Huffington Post]

As sure as there are moose roaming the tundra, Sarah Palin struck back.

Via Facebook, of course:

Really, Mark? Really?

Margaret Thatcher used to say, “I always cheer up immensely if an attack is particularly wounding because I think, well, if they attack one personally, it means they have not a single political argument left.” So, thank you, Mark Begich, for making me and others exceptionally cheery today! Mark, after looking at your voting record I can see why you are looking for a distraction. You have voted FOR Obamacare, FOR massive tax increases, FOR carbon taxes which could cost Alaskans 21,000 jobs, AGAINST pro-life legislation, and there’s so much more. You even flip-flopped to oppose the nation’s balanced budget amendment. You agree with, and vote with, ultra-liberal Senators Chuck Schumer and Harry Reid approximately 90% of the time. Mark, you recently said, “Alaskans pick who they want based on what’s good for Alaska.” Couldn’t agree more, Mark, which is why many hope to see great changes for our great state following the upcoming 2014 election. In the meantime, we suppose we’ll see much more playing of the ol’ Washington political game using those inside D.C. reporters each time you have to distract from yet another bad vote for Alaska in the U.S. Senate. It cheers us up and gives us good opportunity to remind Alaskans just how loyal to the Obama agenda you have been.
