(Newser) – Sarah Palin has slam-Tweeted President Obama's economic strategy as "the most disconnected, backasswards plan ever imposed on the country we love." She made the broadside after Obama ripped her girl Sharron Angle in her race against Senate Majority leader Harry Reid, reports the New York Daily News. Palin also linked to a Las Vegas Review-Journal editorial skewering Obama and Reid. Palin again expressed support of Angle's controversial plan (and misspelled "Sharron") to allow new workers to invest some of their own Social Security funds.

"What part of 'The System is Going Bankrupt' don't you understand, Mr. Reid?" Sarah queried snarkily. Palin has contributed $2,500 to Angle's campaign, and an additional $85,000 to other candidates in the last 3 months, including Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad, Alaska Senate candidate Joe Miller, and GOP California Senate candidate Carly Fiorina, reports AP. But that leaves Palin's Political Action Committee with $1 million left to spend. "We're going to really help a lot of Republican candidates get a chance to win," crowed treasurer Tim Crawford.
