Sarah Palin told Greta Van Susteren last night that she did not have “an ounce of sympathy” for Tom Barrett:
“No, not an ounce of sympathy or empathy for someone who was trying to fool the public into believing that growing government is the answer to any of the economic challenges in a city, in a state or in our nation. No, the people spoke and this is good news to all of America.”

Sarah Palin added this on her Facebook page:
Congratulations to the people of Wisconsin for standing by strong leaders who made tough decisions in dire circumstances that have begun to turn their great state back to prosperity. Leadership is doing what is right, not what is popular. Both Scott Walker and Rebecca Kleefisch are shining examples of this ideal. Elected leaders must do what we elect them to do – lead! – not follow polls or focus on only re-election. A special congratulations to Lt. Gov. Kleefisch who overcame much personal adversity, stood by her governor, and embraced her Tea Party roots.
On Wisconsin! Forward!
