A couple of weeks ago we wrote about the new Sarah Palin Channel. It’s the latest addition to the former Alaska governor’s brand, which has spawned reality television shows, books and speaking engagements.

In recent days, a video from Palin’s online information venture has been making the rounds. It features Palin, a favorite of grassroots conservative activists, taking on Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), who has become the champion of progressives. Warren, in a speech last month at the Netroots Nation conference in Detroit, outlined her “11 Commandments of Progressivism.”

Palin’s point-by-point rebuttal was praised by right-leaning Web sites, such as Writer Tony Lee says that Palin “ in her trademark way, mocks Warren and the left on fast-food restaurants.” 

Left-leaning sites like Talking Points Memo ridiculed Palin’s arguments as “incoherent,” particularly her effort to debunk Warren’s call for “a liveable wage” for fast-food workers.

You can watch the video below and judge for yourself.
