On Fox News’ “Hannity” last night, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin chatted with host Sean Hannity about Democratic attacks on the Republican Party. In addition to dismissing the blitz coming from the left, the two delved into a discussion about GOP operatives and their purportedly weak handling of the current political situation.

Hannity began this portion of the discussion by sharing his fears over liberals’ use of tough words and allegations and the right’s failure to combat these attacks with equal fervor.

“Al Sharpton says there’s a war on Blacks. Howard Dean says that there’s a war on Latinos. Then, of course, there’s a war on the poor — throwing granny over the cliff — and, you know, even Mitt Romney hates dogs because he put a kennel on top of the car,” Hannity said. “But yet Republicans don’t seem as willing to fight the same way. I’m a little concerned about it…why repudiate people who will fight fire with fire?”

Palin agreed with Hannity’s assessment and went on to claim that a one-sided cease-fire wouldn’t be a successful plan moving forward. Additionally, she had some tough words for GOP consultants who seem to be bucking their responsibility to wage a vibrant campaign.

“This phony, hypocritical, one-sided call for a cease-fire by the left and their lapdogs in the media. These leftists politicians saying ‘that’s going to be off the table, that’s going to be off the table,’” she said. “And then for the Republican operatives who are high-paid consultants to candidates agreeing to take things off the table — that’s no battle plan for victory on our side — on the common-sense constitutionalist side. It’s ridiculous.”

These Republican operatives, Palin maintained, “seem to have the fighting instinct of Mr. Snuffleupagus,” a Sesame Street character whom she said was always hiding, backing down and running the other direction. This, Palin maintained, isn’t what America needs.
