Sarah Palin to Attack Rick Perry’s “Crony Capitalism”

by Scorpions and Centaurs

As I noted yesterday, the media are starting to notice that the Secessionist’s sleazy taxpayer-funded pay-for-play scheme — and it looks like the Quitter has noticed, too.

Though she won’t be a candidate when she delivers a major address at a tea party rally in Iowa on Saturday, Sarah Palin will make it clear that she if enters the presidential race later this month she will vociferously challenge Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s engrained image of solidarity with the tea party movement.

In her speech at the bucolic National Balloon Classic field in Indianola, Palin will lean on loaded phrases like “crony capitalism” and “permanent political class” in laying out her view of the U.S. political system’s deep-rooted ills, according to a source close to Palin and familiar with the content of the speech.

Though she will not call Perry out by name, Palin’s carefully couched rhetoric will leave the impression that she may soon draw more overt attention to one of the Texan’s potential vulnerabilities as a candidate: his history of doling out plum positions and other benefits to generous campaign donors during his nearly 11-year tenure as the nation’s longest serving governor.

Remember, while the Secessionist has been supposedly working for the people of Texas, he’s become a millionaire. And “permanent political class” sounds a lot like Willard’s “career politicians” attack, doesn’t it?
