Sarah Palin fed the Teapartisans in Nashville an appetizer of warmed over one-liners about taxes, spending and deficits that add up to "generational theft."

Then she gave the meat eaters what they paid for.

The star of the National Tea Party Convention demanded that Attorney General Eric Holder be bumped from his position.

She demanded White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel be bumped from his position.

She demanded Barack Obama should be bumped from his position.

She objected to Obama as a president and a person.
