Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin told a group of New York businessmen Thursday that it isn’t surprising that first lady Michelle Obama is encouraging mothers to breastfeed.
“No wonder Michelle Obama is telling people to breast feed their babies, because the price of milk is rising so high,” Palin told the crowd.
CNN reports that Palin addressed her presidential ambitions, the political crisis in Egypt, and, of course, the ‘lamestream’ media.
“I am still thinking of leading this country,” said Palin of a possible 2012 campaign for president, “I am still thinking about it. I haven’t made up my mind.”
“No one is more qualified to multi-tasking and doing all the things you need to do as a president than a woman,” said Palin.
On Egypt, Palin said that the American people should know whose side the U.S. government is on. She stressed that the Muslim Brotherhood should not be “invited in to take over.”
The Brotherhood, said Palin, is not supportive of freedom. “If they’re radical enough to have already spoken against liberties and freedom is this good for Egypt and their freedoms?”
Responding to recent polls, she said, “In a lot of those polls I get my butt kicked” and suggested that media coverage of her following the Tucson tragedy affected her likeability.
The avid Facebook user emphasized her desire to reach supporters outside of traditional media saying, “I can’t rely on a liberal-leaning press… That’s why social media will be so important.”
