Sarah Palin Pushes Back Against “Blue-Blood” Bushes

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin says critical comments by people like former first lady Barbara Bush are the work of “blue-bloods” trying to thwart the “will of the people.”

On Laura Ingraham‘s radio show Wednesday, Palin specifically questioned the motives behind Mrs. Bush’s subtle dig about Palin in an interview with CNN’s Larry King: “She’s beautiful,” she tells King, but “she’s very happy in Alaska, and I hope she’ll stay there.”

Palin said to Ingraham:

I don’t want to concede that we have to get used to this kind of thing, because i don’t think the majority of Americans want to put up with the blue-bloods — and i want to say it will all due respect because I love the Bushes — the blue-bloods who want to pick and chose their winners instead of allowing competition.

Palin also goes on to throw an aside back at the blue-bloods with a mention of the family’s role in “the economic policies that were in place that got us into these economic woeful times.”

Perhaps no Palin fundraiser at the house in Kennebunkport?
