Sarah Palin Advises Mitt Romney To Set “Hair On Fire”
Do you ever get the feeling that Sarah Palin is the type that would try to push a logging chain up a hill?
Sarah Palin warned Tuesday that Mitt Romney must do more to energize conservatives before Election Day, saying the Republican presidential candidate should light the base’s “hair on fire.”
“Romney, he has said before that he doesn’t want to have to light his hair on fire. Well, there are a lot of his base supporters, independents who are saying, ‘Well, light our hair on fire, then! Remind us how important it is that we get engaged in this presidential election because it is the election of our lifetime,’” Palin told Sean Hannity of Fox News.
She was referring to Romney’s remarks in February that he’s not interested in saying “outrageous” and “accusatory” statements just for the sake of shoring up support. “You know I’m not willing to light my hair on fire to try and get support,” he had said.
But Palin insisted Tuesday that an electrified base would be key to a Romney victory in the fall.
You know the type of electrified base she is thinking of? The one Palin helped create which allowed her to be vice-president in 2008. Maybe Palin should just save her advice.
