Conservative Mama grizzly Sarah Palin has some advice for U.S. Sens. Ted Cruz and Mike Lee as the defund Obamacare effort now moves to their arena: “Woman up, stand your ground, and fight like a girl!”
After the House voted Friday to fully fund the government, but not include funding for Obamacare, the battle moves to the Senate.
And Palin has thrown her full support behind the two senators’ efforts to defund Obamacare and is now telling all Republican senators to get on “Cruz Control.”
In an outstanding article she wrote for Breitbart News Saturday, Palin urged Cruz and Lee’s colleagues to ignore the “gutless and rudderless” GOP establishment, ignore the media, “ignore the peanut gallery pundits” who would blame a government shutdown on Republicans, and get behind the will of millions of Americans and defund Obamacare.
“The message only grows stronger,” she said. “The grassroots is bigger than any one person. We the People will rise up, and we will make our voices heard. Right now, Ted Cruz is speaking for us in this Obamacare fight. God bless him for it.”
Using examples of the slaying she has taken in the press for years, Palin wrote:
We’re now, once again, subjected to the “anonymous sources” backstabbing game. The Capitol Hill cowards are rushing to anonymously denounce Senator Cruz to any reporter with a pad and pen.
Welcome to our world, Ted. The same people have been denouncing conservatives like me for years (right after they ask for help fundraising for themselves or endorsing the latest candidate they’ve suckered into paying their exorbitant consulting fees). We can compare shiv marks next time we meet, my friend.
If the Senate doesn’t get behind Ted Cruz’s efforts to defund Obamacare, it won’t be because of any failure on Ted’s part. It’ll be because there weren’t enough principled leaders to stand with him, and that would be a tragic loss, not for Ted, but for America.
But the permanent political class is handwringing and howling that if there’s a government shutdown the media will blame Republicans for it. Here’s a little newsflash, GOP establishment: Whenever anything bad happens, the media blames Republicans for it. That’s not an excuse to roll over and play dead. It’s a call to follow the advice I give my daughters: Woman up, stand your ground, and fight like a girl!
I want no pity. I need no empathy. But use me as a barometer. Over the years, the leftwing media has falsely and irrationally accused me of everything from faking a pregnancy to abetting murder. They lie. Deal with it.
Later on Saturday, Palin tweeted Sens. Cruz and Lee, telling them she, and we, have their backs:

Palin, never one to mince words, ended her article with a warning to Republican senators up for re-election:
“Moose season ends soon, allowing more time on one’s hands. So, we’ll be watching your votes very carefully this week.”
Indeed, we will.
