Sarah Palin was on “Hannity” tonight to discuss Dave Brat’s Virginia GOP primary win.

“Those who are absolutely shocked that this could ever happen must not have their thumb on the pulse of what many Americans are thinking, and that is the status quo has got to go,” she said.

The former Alaska governor stressed that failed policies and agendas are driving America’s economy into the ditch. She said Brat’s campaign was simple and in touch with the people that he will represent, if elected.

According to Palin, another reason for Brat’s success is that the American people realize that “amnesty will decimate Main Street.”

Palin also reacted to the revelation that the Obama administration asked Hillary Clinton to attack Palin for “being a woman” during the 2008 presidential election.

“Team Obama has such disrespect for women,” she said. “It’s kind of cool to see proof there that they are the ones who took that first shot in the so-called war on women, it certainly wasn’t the GOP.”
