Sarah Palin’s Speech in Nashville

Glenn Reynolds snapped some shots, “SOME PICS FROM SARAH PALIN’S SPEECH.”

And CNN has a clip, “Palin Blasts Democrats in Tea Party Speech“:

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin drew many standing ovations from a friendly crowd Saturday night as she blasted Washington Democrats and the Obama administration in a keynote speech for what was billed as the first national Tea Party Convention.

“It’s so inspiring to see real people, not politicos, inside-the-beltway professionals, come out, stand up and speak out for common-sense conservative principles,” Palin said.

Palin sought to hold Washington accountable as she took on a number of issues, including national security, the economy, and the recent election of Republican Scott Brown to the Massachusetts Senate seat left vacant by the late Ted Kennedy.

“America is ready for another revolution and you are a part of this,” Palin said.

She called the Tea Party movement a “ground-up call to action that is forcing both parties to change the way they’re doing business.”

Palin gave particular attention to Brown’s election, calling him a representative “of this beautiful movement.”

I’m going to have more on this later. But see also, the Los Angeles Times, “Sarah Palin to Tea Party Convention: ‘This is About the People’; MSNBC, “Palin to Obama: ‘Stop Lecturing, Start Listening’” (via Hot Air); and the New York Times, “Palin Assails Obama at Tea Party Meeting.”

Leftist David Weigel reports, “Palin Speaks: “How’s that Hopey-Changey Thing Working Out for Ya?”.” (Via Memeorandum.)

Plus, C-SPAN has the full speech, “Sarah Palin Remarks to Tea Party Convention.”
