In May, Sarah Palin threw her support behind Rob Maness, a Tea Party contender for a Louisiana Senate seat. In the ad, Maness can be seen “wrestling” a tiny alligator that would struggle to strike fear into a kitten as a metaphor for his willingness to something something liberals are evil.
“I approve this message because Louisiana needs a senator who will stand up to the career politicians… and the alligators,” he says in the ad.
Maness told ABC that, “An alligator appears to be a dangerous animal that lies in wait to devour whatever it can, because it’s always hungry, and in that way, the gators are not unlike liberal politicians. They’re willing to destroy every last vestige of our liberties and our independence.”
Obviously, this massive display of manliness was enough to win Sarah Palin’s heart. “In the Louisiana Senate race we have the opportunity to send a true conservative and a real warrior to join that fight. So, today I am lending my support to retired Col. Rob Maness for U.S. Senate,”Bargain Bin Barbie said in a Maness campaign statement.
“Rob is the admitted underdog in this race,” Palin said in the statement. “Having spent his career in uniform, he does not have deep pockets or lobbyist connections to fund his campaign. To me, it’s a blessing, not a curse that he’s not held office before. After all, our founders weren’t politicians – many of them in fact were military leaders. Maybe it’s time we got back to those roots!”
She has praised the “gator hunter” for “opposing amnesty, pledging to protect our Second Amendment rights, and promising to defund Obamacare,” because that strategy has worked out so well for the GOP thus far.
The conservative fountain of misinformation Breitbart reported that the half-wit half-term former Governor of Alaska and Maness held an event at Restaurant des Familles in Crown Point, where Maness brought his friend — a tiny gator — to help “wow” the crowd.
The two then proceeded to serve the crowd some tasty alligator meat.
“Rob has the added challenge of going up against the establishment. The folks in the GOP are in it for a season, not a reason. It’s a business for them,” Palin told the Times-Picayune. “Rob is standing up for the average, hardworking American who is saying, ‘Enough is enough.’ The status quo has got to go.”
