Sarah Palin appeared on Sean Hannity's Fox News program Tuesday to discuss Arizona's hotly debated immigration law. Unruffled by reports of outraged dissent, Palin echoed a line of argument others
have advanced this week: that by signing the bill, Arizona governor Jan
Brewer took the necessary steps to address a problem the federal
government has been negligent about. "Brewer and her legislature, they
did the right thing," Palin told Hannity in the clip shown below.
"Seventy percent of Arizonans who support this law are doing the right
thing, in sending this wake-up call to the feds."
Mediaite's Frances Martel, no fan of Palin, nonetheless praised the former Alaska governor's conduct here as "eloquent" and "formidable." Watch:
part two of this interview, Palin hits back at critics like Joe Klein, the Time
columnist who recently told Chris Matthews that some of Palin's
comments about President Obama and the federal government "rub right up
close to being seditious."
