Sarah Palin Releases New Video: 'The Tea Party Is The Future Of Politics'

ABC’s Michael Falcone reports:

Here’s what you won’t hear in the new video Sarah Palin’s political action committee, SarahPAC, released on Tuesday: Any mention of the GOP or the Republican Party.

What comes through loud and clear, however, is Palin’s message that the Tea Party is the “future of politics,” and Palin appears more willing than ever to position herself as the de facto leader of the movement.

“The tea party movement is not a top-down operation,” Palin says in the video, which splices together clips of her past speeches on the Tea Party circuit. “It’s a ground-up call to action that is forcing both parties to change the way that they’re doing business and that’s beautiful.”

The spot, which runs just under a minute-and-a-half represents a notable departure from the message of her three-month-old “Mama Grizzlies” video in which she refers to “a whole stampede of pink elephants crossing the line” in November.

Some of the music and images are different in the new SarahPAC video, which is titled “Tea Party.” The soothing sounds and shots of Palin embracing other women in “Mama Grizzlies” gives way to an action movie-style soundtrack with alternating shots of fired-up, sign-carrying activists and Palin, her hair blowing in the windswept high desert of Nevada at the March Tea Party rally there.

“The soul of this movement is the people -- everyday Americans who grow our food and run our small businesses, and teach our kids, and fight our wars,” she says. “They’re folks in small towns and cities across this great nation who saw what was happening … and they got involved.”

The video closes with a simple message: “Join the movement today -- visit”
