Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin observed Thursday that although Republicans now have a comfortable majority in both chambers of Congress, they’re still playing a defensive political game.
Palin was in Las Vegas at the SHOT Show — the Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trade Show — promoting her Sportsman Channel TV series, Amazing America,” when she made her remarks.
“I’m not going to talk politics except to say the GOP had better go on offense,” Palin told The Blaze. “Man, they are not going to win any game on defense. Being in the majority there in D.C. — we’re blowing it if we just bend our back.”
And then the former GOP vice presidential candidate did something that never fails to endear her to her followers, and infuriate her enemies — she topped off her remarks with a Palin-esque zinger.
“That GOP leadership, that establishment, they’ve got to get their stuff together. I love what they believe in, I believe in it too,” Palin said. But they’ve got to get tough, man. You know what? It’s not just the New England Patriots who are dealing with deflated balls right now.”
Twitter lit up at that one. Here are a few examples:

Although it’s still early in the game, the governor may have a point. But If House Speaker John Boehner’s decision to invite the Israeli prime minister to address Congress without informing the White House is any indication, maybe they’re beginning to inflate.
