Sarah Palin Mania takes over Daytona
orlandosentinel.com ^ | February 14, 2010 | Andrea Adelson

Posted on 02/14/2010 2:52:04 PM PST by Berlin_Freeper

When she arrived for the drivers meeting, Palin was immediately mobbed. She briefly chatted with Republican National Committee chairman Michael Steele, shook hands with supporters and smiled big.

She took a seat up front next to Harry Connick Jr., who sang the national anthem for the race. When NASCAR president Mike Helton acknowledged her as a special guest, she got the largest ovation from the room, packed from the front to the back with drivers, team members, support personnel and onlookers.

After sitting through the meeting, Palin could not get out the door. Fans mobbed her, asking for pictures and autographs. Her 12-person entourage, comprised of track security, a policeman, friends and spokespeople, tried to get her to the door and to her next appearance. But Palin could not help herself, and kept signing and posing for pictures.

Even when she was able to get out the door, she stopped every few feet to take pictures. One fan asked where her husband, Todd, was on Valentine's Day. Palin said he couldn't make it because he's in Alaska preparing for the Iron Dog, the world's longest snow-mobile race.

As she got moving again, Palin stopped when she saw a boy in a wheelchair to say hello and sign an autograph. As she walked ahead, she answered two questions about attending her first Daytona 500.

"This is awesome," said a slim Palin, wearing designer jeans, a smart charcoal coat and sky-high black stiletto heels. "It's an All-Americana event. A good, patriotic, wonderful event that's bringing a whole lot of people together. I think it's good for our country."

Couldn’t tell by watching the punks on FOX. I’ve watched the coverage since noon, and NOTHING HAS BEEN SAID ABOUT SARAH.

Articles like this one must just kill a liberal to have to read or for that matter, even have to know the article exists.

As a high school guy in the late '70s (the height of Jordache and Sassoon), I could tell you, but I don't want to get banned ;-)

My guess is that she makes any thing she wears look like designer.

LOL. Seriously, though. Do they have big tags on the butt, or what? If that journo can ID designer jeans just by checking out the stitching on the back pockets or something, that pressitute's got way too much time on her hands...

And if Palin was really wearing non-designer jeans(aka Levis, etc.), why label 'em as "designer"?

No doubt about that. Since we’re about the same height, I’d love to know where she gets her clothes. But I’m really curious how the journo knows what brand of jeans Palin was wearing.

I'd love to see a picture of Palin in ‘designer jeans and sky heels’. Makes me a little jealous of her husband having a hottie for a wife.
But we all know by early evening tonight, every liberal idiot channel will be questioning how much money she spends on her wardrobe and what the hell she was doing a NASCAR race.

LOL! As far as appearance, the stitching on the back pockets along with the look of being “painted on” as well as non-faded were the usual criteria.

But I’m really curious how the journo knows what brand of jeans Palin was wearing.

Here's an example of the '70s "designer" style jeans:

The Hildabeast could not wear them.

LOL. Thanks! Do they still stick the brand name on the backside? For some reason I thought that was déclassé.

The reason I'm interested in all this is that I suspect that the journo's reason for including the designer description of the jeans was to somehow distance Palin from your average American female, whose wardrobe I'll bet doesn't run to desinger jeans.

From the pic a couple of replies below, looks like any stitching that might ID the jeans is covered by the jacket. How did the journo know which brand of jeans Palin was wearing?

And just out of curiosity, do Michelle Obama's designer togs get labeled as designer? I notice that Mrs. O gets much different treatment than Nancy Reagan got when it comes to the cost of the First Lady's clothes and the question of who paid for 'em.

I’m revealing my age, but I remember the ration of excrement Nancy Reagan got over the cost of her clothes. I notice that Michelle Obama doesn’t come in for anything like Nancy Reagan got. Which is even more ironic when one considers how Michelle Obama likes to dis the wealthy while wearing their designer duds.

Palin getting a great reception from 118,000 people. You can bet that news like this makes 0bama’s guts tie in a knot.

Tomorrow, Palin will be doing a booksigning event, followed by a speech to the Daytona Beach Chamber of Commerce. They originally scheduled the event in a hotel dining room, but because of the demand for tickets, they’ve moved it to a convention/sports center with a capacity of about 15,000. On Tuesday Palin will be addressing a gop fundraiser in N. Little Rock AR at the Verizon Center, capacity 18,000. From what I’ve heard ticket sales for both events have been very good, I suspect both will be record breakers.
