Sarah Palin releases 'renegades going rogue' video: Who's in it?
The new video by Sarah Palin's political action committee is a quick-moving montage of Sarah-backed candidates who won Tuesday, lots of flags, a roaring bear, and a glimpse of Sarah Palin herself. Not included: Christine O'Donnell and the other 'mama grizzlies' who lost.

Then she herself appears, in her only appearance on tape. Quick cut, and there is a really awesome picture of a bear, presumably in Alaska, standing on his hind legs and roaring in the way a bear would roar if it had just won 53 percent of the vote against an incumbent in a bear election.Skip to next paragraph

Did we mention the lumberjack axing off the top of a tree?
Putting out the SarahPAC video at a moment of GOP triumph is a smart move on the part of Palin and her advisers. It may find a receptive audience among happy Republicans who are willing to dig a little deeper and donate now. That’s what SarahPAC is about, after all – raising money and channeling it to candidates.
And the video will get lots of free promotion from folks like us writing about it.
Losing tea party candidates aren’t shown on film. There’s no Christine O’Donnell, for instance, though SarahPAC donated $10,000 to O’Donnell’s campaign, according to FEC records. Some winning candidates didn’t make the cut, either. Where’s Sen. John McCain? Palin campaigned for him this fall and SarahPAC gave the former presidential candidate $5,000. Where’s Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah? SarahPAC gave him $1,000.
Voters “took Obamacare and the stimulus and wrapped them right around the necks” of lawmakers who had dismissed their concerns, writes Palin.
If Republicans learn the right lessons from 2010 they’ll be able to make even more gains in 2012, according to Palin.
“Till then, I hope that commonsense patriots will join me in applauding the real heroes of this election year, the Tea Party Americans,” she writes.
