ABC News’ Sheila Marikar (@sheilaym) reports:
Sarah Palin took to Facebook this afternoon to urge GOP freshmen to “remember us ‘little people’” as the debt debate wears on. She wrote:
“Today I re-read the open letter I wrote to Republican Freshman Members of Congress in November 2010, just days after they were ushered into office in an historic landslide victory due in large part to the activism of commonsense patriots who are considered part of the Tea Party movement. I respectfully ask these GOP Freshman to re-read this letter and remember us ‘little people’ who believed in them, donated to their campaigns, spent hours tirelessly volunteering for them, and trusted them with our votes. This new wave of public servants may recall that they were sent to D.C. for such a time as this.”
Palin pasted the original letter below her note and bolded certain passages that she deemed “especially relevant to the current discussion.”
She closed with an ambiguous line — “P.S. Everyone I talk to still believes in contested primaries.”
That could be a threat — suggesting that she won’t support members of Congress who vote to raise the debt ceiling – or a reference to her 2012 aspirations.
