Sarah Palin Slams 'Very, Very Intolerant' Liberal Media: 'They Want to Crush Us'

Paul Bedard at the Washington Examiner reported that “Sarah Palin on Tuesday shot back at CNN anchor Carol Costello’s gleeful mocking over the assault of Palin’s daughter Bristol, charging that liberal media want to destroy those who don’t agree with them.”

Palin, pounded by the media from the first minutes after they announced her in 2008 as John McCain’s running mate, told Stuart Varney on the Fox Business Network, “The bottom line of course is those liberals they love those Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals, where they are out there playing the politics of personal destruction. They do want to destroy personally those they disagree with. They’re very, very intolerant of those who maybe hold opposing views to their liberal failed agenda views. So, you know, they want to crush us.”

Palin also said that the personal attacks on her and her family have sparked a renewed interest in running for political office.

“The more they’re pouring on, the more I’m going to bug the crap out of them by being out there with a voice, with the message, hopefully running for office in the future,” Palin told Stuart Varney.

Asked what the Republican leadership needs, Palin simply said:

PALIN: They need more guts, they need to have the confidence that the American people understand the platform have strong planks upon which our country can grow and prosper and be more secure instead of being so hesitant going along to get along, the media will say something mean about me if I exercise some of the leadership that we’re all craving. I would just like to see them have more confidence in what it is that we stand for, because history proves the time tested proofs that should be embraced by conservatives, they’re the ones that work and we have a lot of good leaders out there like Ted Cruz and Mike Lee. They don't have the title of leader, but at least in my opinion and a of people I know is, they are the ones who do exercise the leadership we need.
