Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) announced that she is running for the U.S. House from the state of Alaska, and she said that she’s getting back into politics to fight the “namby pamby wussy pussy stuff” that she says is causing a “mess” in the country now.
Palin ran for vice president in 2008 on an anti-LGBTQ platform with the late Sen. John McCain (R-AZ). At the time, she told voters that she had a gay friend while she backed constitutional amendments both in Alaska and at the federal level to prohibit same-sex couples from marrying. She also said that “homosexuality” is “a choice.”

Talking to Fox News’s Sean Hannity, Palin compared herself to Donald Trump, saying that both she and Trump have “nothing to lose” as well as “cajones.”
“I’m going to throw my hat in the ring because we need people that have cajones,” she said. “We need people, like Donald Trump, who have nothing to lose, like me.”
“We got nothing to lose and no more of this vanilla milquetoast namby-pamby wussy pussy stuff that’s been going on , that’s why our country is in the mess that we’re in.”
Later in the interview, Hannity asked her if the congressional seat she’s running for is open, meaning that no incumbent will appear on the ballot.
Palin responded that, yes, it’s open, it’s the entire state of Alaska.

For the record, the seat she’s running for is open because the person who won the 2020 election, Rep. Don Young (R-AK), passed away earlier this month. He represented that state in the House of Representatives for 49 years before he died at age 88.
