Sarah Palin gave a speech 2 hours ago to a huge crowd at an Air National Guard hanger at Bangor International Airport in Bangor, Maine.
Sarah mentioned Joe the Plumber to cheers from the crowd.
Before Sarah spoke, Lee Greenwood sang the National Anthem and God Bless the USA.
The local ABC affiliate carried the entire speech live.
The CBS affiliate did not....they had the Ellen DeGeneres show.
The NBC affiliate did not....they had an extension of The Today Show with Kathie Lee and Hoda.
PBS had some annoying kiddie show.
Sarah was great, as usual. She mention her sister, who owns a “service station” in Alaska. Sarah mentioned how she cut or eliminated numerous taxes in Alaska. Sarah also mentioned that once, just once, she wants to hear Barack Obama say that he wants to win the war in Iraq.
When Gov. Palin speaks, she is pure gold.
thanks for giving us the play by play on her speech earlier today in Maine. As much as I hate the thought of what she is sacrificing in the way of time with her children to be VP, my entire family is praying that we will get our miracle,and have a McCain/Palin team in the WH in January.
Nothing sexist — I’m just a single adoptive homeschooling mother of four who see her children’s needs, which are HUGE even compared to what most of us face each day. I’m torn by wanting her desperately in leadership, and knowing what her children are missing out on with their Momma.
