Ryan Grim Talks Palin's 'Holier Than Thou' Tea Party Tone (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

HuffPost's Senior Congressional Correspondent Ryan Grim appeared on MSNBC Monday to weigh in on Sarah Palin's recent "tea party" remarks.

Palin appeared at the group's first national convention in Nashville this past weekend and took aim at President Obama.

Grim explained that while Palin may not be consistent with her ideas, her tone remains the same.
"It's the same tone she affected since she was thrust into the spotlight in the summer of 2008. She's always had this kind of holier than thou attitude where she refers to herself and her supporters as 'real Americans.'"

Grim argued that the worst part about Palin's crib notes was that the former governor used them to talk about her core beliefs.
