Eggclone, snowcorn, whatever

Anyone seen this particular blend before?

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has issued a full-throttled endorsement of “Dispatches From Bitter America,” a new book written by Fox News Radio’s Todd Starnes.

Perhaps the author* was reaching for "full-throated" but saw "full throttle" on the next shelf and decided to take one of each? Anyway, that's not as much fun as the endorsement itself:

“It’s especially relevant because Todd lays out in detail the Obama Administration’s war on religious liberty,” Palin said. “Todd sheds light on this and other ‘fundamental transformation’ acts using homespun humor and Twainesque irony.”

And look at the company she's in. Ain't that a majority in any town?

Palin joined a list of prominent conservatives who have endorsed the book including Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, and Pastor Robert Jeffress, and Gretchen Carlson. Thousands of people turned out to hear Starnes speak on his “Dispatches Across Bitter America Book Tour.”

“Todd uses Southern sensibilities mixed with homespun humor to take us along his journey across America,” Hannity said.

Alliteration sure does seem catchy out there in Bitter America, doesn't it? 

* The item is currently the lede at "top stories" on Starnes's blog

Unfortunate that her endorsement -- well, anything she says -- wasn't fully throttled before anyone else had to listen to it.

"Full-throttled" doesn't seem out of place to me. Means "no holds barred, at full steam, all out", doesn't it?
