At a rally in Iowa last month, Sarah Palin spoke out against what she called “corporate crony capitalism.”

She said, “It’s not the capitalism of free men and free markets, of innovation and hard work and ethics, of sacrifice and of risk. No, this is the capitalism of connections and government bailouts and handouts and influence peddling and corporate welfare.”

Now Palin has decided not to run for president. Will she just remain a talking head on Rupert Murdoch’s payroll or will she stand behind her words?

If she really believes what she said, she would join the thousands of others who are standing up against corporate greed and help occupy Wall Street. Let’s hope Palin does the right thing.
