Did Sarah Palin really say that?

Sarah Palin.

"I bet you, you can go out here and you can find 10 members of any Iowa farming family and ask them, what are the common sense solutions that we need in order to make the cuts in the federal government and in order to really get the economic engine, our small businesses, to be able to get up and running and grow and thrive and hire more people? You ask any 10 members out here and they could probably give you a better idea than those 10 members of the commission [the Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction]. You know why, Sean? These members of Congress have been part of the problem. Not part of the solution. I say it with all due respect to those who are willing to serve in public office. But, doggone it, no more of the same, no more politics as usual."—in an interview with Sean Hannity, Aug. 12, 2011
