Peter Smith of the Louisville courier-Journal reports on Sarah Palin's appearance at the Women of Joy Conference:
Sarah Palin told a Freedom Hall crowd of about 16,000 Friday night that she was there to inspire women in their faith, not to talk politics.The event became sold out quickly after Gov. Palin was announced as a speaker. According to Waldrep, the event drew only about 5,000 last year.
But... Palin now a best-selling author and headline speaker at tea-party tax protests did plenty of both in the course of her nearly hour-long talk at an evangelical Christian womens conference.
This nation needs you, Palen told the women. Know the facts. Stand for whats right. Dont be discouraged by the mocking of those who want to claim we just cling to our religion. Im the first to admit yeah, I do cling to my faith. Thats all Ive got.
Palin mixed stories of personal struggles, calls for women to be good mothers and good citizens and criticism of President Barack Obama without ever mentioning him by name.
She asked for the women who greeted her with an enthusiastic standing ovation to provide a prayer shield to strengthen her against what she said was deception in the media.
She denounced this weeks Wisconsin federal court ruling that government observance of a National Day of Prayer was unconstitutional which the crowd joined in booing. She asserted that America needs to get back to its Christian roots and rejected any notion that God should be separated from the state.
Hearing any leader declare that America isnt a Christian nation and poking at allies like Israel in the eye it is mind-boggling to see some of our nations actions recently, but politics truly is a topic for another day, Palin said.

I think you got the 16 confused with Romney’s crowd.
God Bless Sarah Palin. She is NOT afraid to speak her mind..Her faith is what keeps driving her to continue doing what is right
Ack! Typo. If any moderators are around, could you please fix?
Headline is WRONG!
Sarah Palin told a Freedom Hall crowd of about 16,000 Friday night....
Correct title should read:
“Courier-Journal: Sarah Palin speaks to crowd of 16,000 at Freedom Hall”
Another Joan of Arc?
16,000!!!! That is the size of a light infantry division. YeeeHaaaa!!!!
Exactly right!! To me, faith is most important, it gets you through everything..the good times and the bad times. I wondered how Sarah was able to deal with the crap thrown at her everyday, its her faith and her family
Right. And that’s something the libs don’t get. She has a shield surrounding her - nothing sticks that the godless throw at her.
Pity the KY newspaper misspelled her name in their article.
“This nation needs you, Palen told the women.””
I love that logo.
And just think that was just women alone, what if the conference included men? 16,000 alone is enough to win a caucus for Palin.
That would look good on flags, bumper stickers, and t-shirts...
