Palin delivered a punch line? She is the punch line!!

THE WOODLANDS – Standing on a stage in the middle of a park facing a crowd of more than a thousand supporters of former Texas Solicitor General Ted Cruz, Alaska’s embarrassment Sarah Palin smiled and pointed at the black boots on her feet.

By Aman Batheja

“You know who gave me these boots?” she asked sweetly. “Your governor.”

The crowd cheered. Then Palin delivered the punch line.

“At least in that one case he made a good decision,” she said.

It was the most overt reference to what has emerged as the dividing line in this intense July 31 Republican runoff to replace U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison, who is retiring.

A large swath of Republican leaders in state government are backing Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst, while a bevy of the country’s most well-known conservatives are rallying around Cruz.

The two factions have traditionally been on the same side. Palin even spoke at a similar rally in favor of Gov. Rick Perry’s re-election bid in 2010.

Now members from each side are openly dismissing each other as politically irrelevant in Texas.

As the laughter subsided, Palin qualified her jab at Perry, who is backing Dewhurst, by adding, “We’ll be a team after this is all over again.”

Other speakers at the rally reinforced the notion, insinuated by Palin, that those opposed to a Cruz victory in the runoff were also at odds with the Tea Party movement as a whole.

U.S. Sen. Jim DeMint, a South Carolina Republican and a Tea Party favorite, listed Senate race upsets of the past two years, including the victories of Pat Toomey in Pennsylvania, Rand Paul in Kentucky and Marco Rubio in Florida.

“We the people have taken back our government and you’re seeing it in this election too. … The establishment picked their candidate — Austin, Washington. It was a done deal,” said DeMint, who predicted a “landslide victory” for Cruz that could only have happened under “the new political reality.”

    I live in Texas and I never thought I would be so unhappy to see Sen Kay Bailey go – Cruz – Dewhurst – what’s the difference?

    It’s a good thing she’s given up eating, cause you don’t shit where you eat.

    I saw someone respond to one of her Twitter posts: I hate every fucking word you say.

    That about sums it up.

    I rarely comment on Palin’s appearance, but she looked awful at the Woodlands.

    Seriously, you mock folks who come to Alaska from other states, but you wear that get-up when you come to Texas? How condescending.
