Peter Singleton, Iowa state co-ordinator for Organize4Palin:
Imagine, if you will, that this is May 1944. Were all in our tents in Great Britain. Were all preparing.
Youve checked your boots. And checked your gear. Do you have your sidearm? Check. What about your rifle? Double check. How about extra ammo? Youve packed and re-packed the landing craft. The fellows in the airborne have pored over the maps of the drop zones, again and again.
And as you continue through the laundry list of things you need to do to prepare for the call to hit the beaches you notice your buddy two bunks over is just sitting there, his arms crossed tightly.
Hey pal, you call out. Arent you gonna get ready?
No, he mutters under his breath.
Why not? Everyone knows that the invasion is imminent!
Because General Eisenhower hasnt briefed me on his strategy.
What!? you reply incredulously.
When are we going? Where are we going to hit? he exclaims. What day? These are all things we need to know, and know right now. Im not going to do a thing to get ready until I hear from the General!
That scenario is preposterous when you think about it, isnt it? Because, as soldiers, they all knew they had to be ready. They did know that invading the continent was almost certain and was imminent. But they also knew that they would never be privy to the strategic planningand should not be. The less people who knew of the whens and the wherefores, the less chance there was of the information being leaked to the Germans. And then what would have happened? The Germans would have been ready and waiting on June 6, and on the beaches of Normandyand the course of the war and of human history would have been changed.
So we too must look at the election cycle metaphorically as a war.
Today, for us, it is May of 1944. We dont know when the call will come, only that its almost certainly coming and its coming soon.
So our job right now is to prepare for that call so that when the announcement comes we are ready to go. Were are prepared and ready for what is to come.
That the General hasnt filled us in on her strategy is no surprise. Secrecy and message discipline is vital in any campaign be it a campaign for war or a campaign for office. This is could not be more important in this, potentially the most important election in American history.
So the question I throw out there to all Palin supporters is this
Are you ready to storm the beaches?
WE HAVE BEEN READY FOR FRIGGING MONTHS NOW!!!!
Checkbooks out, ready to buy signs, bumper stickers, man phones, anything else that needs to be done. We're primed and pumped. But until Sarah tells us she's running, there's not much else we can do!!!
Storm the Sons of Beaches!
See my tag line
Hear, hear. The question is not whether we are ready, the question is whether SHE is ready.
Relax. Let the field beat each other up. Obama beats himself up. I think she will run. We’ve got 13 months of hell and highwater to get er done.

Right! And we'll stay in a constant state of preparedness until Sarah gives us the green light. Just like those soldiers on D-Day, we know it's coming any day now, but we're simply not on a need-to-know basis regarding the actual GO date.
Same here. I may not have bucks to help, but I've got a mouth, and a brand new pair of sneakers just waiting to get worn out.
I have already donated at sarahpac.com, but I'm ready to give more.
We will need some "Sarah Palin for President" yard/political signs. It would be great if a national organization could print them in bulk and sell them at cost to local Tea Party organizations. We can provide the sticks.
I'm ready. Let's do it -- probably in October or November. .
Read the article. You'll know on the day that she declares. I guess that would be "D" Day, wouldn't it?
Speaking of cards, I actually drew 2 to a diamond royal flush a few months ago. I was not the dealer. My only opponent left had a standard flush. Woo-Hoo
I quit listening to speculation about her intended announcement dates after the first date came and went. She's going to announce when the moment is right, and not a minute sooner.
As far as promises go, Sarah has said that it has to be no later than late September - early October. That is as close as anyone can nail it down.
I've got no problem with that. We've got a long 13 months ahead of us until election day.

I’m sorry, but this is just creepy for me as a conservative to see anybody this blindly devoted to a human being.
Gotta be early October at the latest (which Sarah herself has indicated). There are a couple of important filing dates that she can't miss, then.
In wartime, truth is so precious that she should always be attended by a bodyguard of lies.
There are a lot of lies going around... and half of them are true.
