Sarah Palin Wants YOU for Her Army of Pink Elephants, Ladies

The video is a bunch of video clips edited together behind some generically inspirational piano music and a Sarah Palin voiceover, which I'm guessing was stitched together from various speeches.

Video description: Graphic: "SARAHPAC" over an image of the US where the "heartland" has been replaced by Alaska (it is surely meant to look like Alaska has been "relocated" to the "heartland," but instead looks like a cut-out). Palin stands at a podium in front of a giant US flag, a crowd applauding behind her. A young white women holds a sign reading, "We don't care for Obamacare," next to an old white woman holding a sign reading, "No Government Run Healthcare!" A young white woman in a "Savagette" t-shirt holds a sign reading, "Annoy Liberal [sic] Work Hard & Pay Your Own Bills." A middle-aged white woman in a wheelchair has a sign reading, "Don't Tread on Me." An old white woman holds a sign reading, "We [heart] Sarah USA." Montage of Palin waving, hugging, standing in front of giant US flags. A young white woman holds a sign reading, "I Love Sarah Palin because she loves my country!" Montage of white women at Palin events, holding supportive signs and/or US flags, many of them wearing patriotic gear. Montage of Palin shaking hands, greeting people, hugging, posing for pictures, being applauded while standing at podiums, giving the thumbs-up. Same "SARAHPAC" graphic as at the beginning.

Voiceover transcript: This year will be remembered as the year when common-sense conservative women get things done for our country. [applause] All across this country, women are standing up and speaking out for common-sense solutions. These policies coming out of DC right now—this fundamental transformation of America—well, a lot of women, who are very concerned about their kids' futures, say, "We don't like this fundamental transformation, and we're gonna do something about it." It seems like it's kind of a mom awakening in the last year-and-a-half, where women are rising up and saying, "No, we've had enough already." Because moms kinda just know when something's wrong. Here in Alaska, I always think of the mama grizzly bears that rise up on their hind legs when somebody's comin' to attack their cubs, to do something adverse toward their cubs. Ya thought pit bulls were tough! Well, ya don't wanna mess with the mama grizzlies. [applause] And that's what we're seeing with all these women who are banding together, rising up, saying, "No—this isn't right for our kids and for our grandkids. And we're gonna do something about this. We're gonna turn this thing around; we're gonna get our country back on the right track, no matter what it takes, to respect the will of the people." Look out, Washington!—'cause there's a whooooole stampede of pink elephants crossing the line and the ETA stampeding through is November Second, 2010. Lotta women, coming together.
