Sarah Palin gets lonely on sidelines, attacks Perry

As if Rick Perry wasn’t taking enough flak from his fellow Republican candidates for president, he has to sit still for a rambling denunciation from none other than Sarah Palin who thinks it is just wrong to let undocumented immigrants pay in-state tuition at Texas colleges.

From ABC News:

“By providing in state tuition for those who are not residents of his state, because the illegal immigrants who are there — they are not even obviously — not residents of America legally much less the state of Texas,” Palin said. “It sounds like Rick Perry is having a heck of a time trying to explain his position on illegal immigration when he has incentivized some to be able to really grasp a benefit that the majority of Americans would never be able to take an advantage of: in state tuition in the state of Texas.”

Unlike ABC News and The Colorado Independent, Firedoglake just couldn’t resist having some fun with this latest Palin effort to be relevant.
