In a new video out today, Sarah Palin sent a warning message to big-government liberals: "You thought pitbulls were tough? Well, you don't wanna mess with the Mama Grizzlies!"
The video, which celebrates conservative women's activism, was released this morning by Palin's political action committee, SarahPAC.
"It seems like it's kind of a mom awakening in the last year and a half," says Palin, as clips of women activists at political speeches and Tea Party rallies flash over the screen. "Where women are rising up and saying 'No -- we've had enough, already.' Because moms kind of just know when something's wrong."
The inspiring message in the video is a contrast to the attacks against conservative women that have been launched by media and political figures on the left.
In May, liberal talker Mike Malloy called Rep. Michelle Bachmann, R-Minn., a "phony-ass broad" and a "skank."
Last October, Keith Olbermann referred to conservative columnist Michelle Malkin as "a mashed-up bag of meat with lipstick on it."
And last September, Ed Schultz dismissed the attorney and former State Department official Liz Cheney as "daddy's little girl" -- a reference to her father, former Vice President Dick Cheney.
But Palin clearly hasn't let the anti-women rhetoric get her down. "Look out Washington, 'cause there's a whole stampede of pink elephants crossing the line," she says at the end of the video. "And the ETA, stampeding through, is Nov. 2, 2010."
