ABC News' David Chalian Reports:
On her first full day as the former governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin's political opponents are making sure to keep her in the political spotlight.
MoveOn.org Political Action launched a new 30-second television ad today painting Gov. Palin as "the new face of Republican opposition to clean energy." The ad points to Gov. Palin's July 14 op-ed in the Washington Post where she called President Obama's cap-and-trade energy plan an "enormous threat to our economy." Move.On.org urges viewers to call their representatives in Congress and tell them "don't side with Sarah."
“Sarah Palin has a lot more free time on her hands now, and it appears she’s decided to lead the Republican Party in attacking a strong clean energy jobs plan that could jump start our economy and create millions of jobs,” said Justin Ruben, Executive Director of MoveOn.org. “Congress needs to think long and hard about whose side they’re on: Sarah Palin’s or the millions of Americans who would benefit from the creation of green jobs.”
The ad, clearly timed to get some free media pickup in the non-stop news accounts of Sarah Palin's farewell, will run on national cable for one week.
