Sarah Palin: 'We like what we're doing' [Briefly talks to jourbalists at Reagan Nat'l Airport]
The Politico ^ | August 28, 2010 | Jonathan Martin

A casually-dressed Sarah Palin talked briefly with POLITICO as she walked through Reagan National Airport on her way out of town after speaking at Glenn Beck's "Restoring Honor" rally on the Natonal Mall.

Holding her BlackBerry up with one hand, she lamented that the Associated Press had only pegged attendance as "tens of thousands."

Asked if there were more than 100,000 people there, Palin said: "Oh yeah."

Smiling broadly, the former governor described the event as inspirational and good-naturedly chided a reporter for not attending.

Told that there was some chatter online about the prospect of a Palin-Beck presidential ticket, she laughed and said: "We like what we're doing now."

Palin was joined by her mother and a small coterie of private security guards dressed in business suits and with earpieces.

Wearing sunglasses and an Oklahoma Sooners T-shirt, the Alaskan was largely unrecognized as she walked toward the short security line at the airport's "C" concourse on a slow afternoon.

Once she was through security and in the terminal, though, more people recognized her...

Thank God she finally has some bodyguards! I've been worried to death that they'd pull a Sirhan Sirhan.

“jourbalists”? :-)

I hear you. I pray for the safety of Sarah, Rush, Glenn, Mark, etc. every day—some of these liberals are as crazy as suicide bombers, there’s no telling what they could do to shut up free speech in this country! :-(

Here's the first paragraph of the AP story, via MyWay.com
WASHINGTON (AP) - Conservative commentator Glenn Beck and tea party champion Sarah Palin appealed Saturday to a vast, predominantly white crowd on the National Mall to help restore traditional American values and honor Martin Luther King's message. Civil rights leaders who accused the group of hijacking King's legacy held their own rally and march.
No bias there.

“Jourbalists”. I like that. Sounds like gerbil and garbage combined... which pretty well sums up most “jourbalists”.

Interesting poll on the Politicio link - most people think Republicans are responsible for the mess we are in. Sure could use some positive responses.

Please ask on any blog or comment section you see: “How many different races were at the Beck stage and how many were represented at the REVs down the street?

Go on the offensive. Don't let the Sharptons on the world set the dialog.

"Thank God she finally has some bodyguards!"

Funny you should say that. We were just remarking today about the lack of security for her this past Friday where she spoke at the Hershey Lodge.


She spent Thursday night there and ran a few miles early morning on the bike paths with little security.
Some other runners were stunned when they saw her.

Typical Jonathan Martin piece on Palin... most of the time if there is a Palin piece he does it and it’s usually not favorable.

Thank you Lord. I have been praying she'd hire some protection.

Tears were streaming down my cheeks throughout the broadcast. I thought C-SPAN did a excellent job.
