Posted on 03/11/2010 8:47:43 PM PST by pissant
Former Republican vice presidential nominee and Alaska Governor Sarah Palin will be in Arizona the last weekend of March as part of Senator John McCain's re-election campaign. Details of that trip are now starting to come into focus.
McCain and his 2008 running mate will host a campaign rally in Tucson on the afternoon of Friday March 26th, before holding a high dollar fundraiser at the Arizona Biltmore later that evening. On Saturday the 27th they will hold another rally in Phoenix.
For the fundraiser, $2500 gets you into the dinner as well as an hour-long pre-dinner VIP reception, including a photo opportunity with McCain and Palin.
Tickets to the dinner alone run for $500, or $1000 for preferred seating.
The fundraiser will be at the same hotel resort where the McCain campaign spent the 2008 Super Tuesday. Ultimately the McCain-Palin campaign also chose as The Biltmore as the site for election night in 2008.
Palin is just one of many big name endorsements McCain has received lately in his GOP senatorial primary race against former Arizona congressman J.D. Hayworth.

Hell if Palin could (not resident of AZ) she’d secretly vote for JD.
Anyone supporting this career political fraud, will do without my support.
She weakens herself with every joint appearance.
She gets a pass on this one. She would be unknown if it weren’t for McCain. She gets a pass.
Who knew you could get Potomac fever without going near the Potomac?
When donars ask for photos, it would be a hoot to see more people lining up for a photo with Sarah than with John :)
Then that would make her immoral.
Palin helping Lindsay Graham-nesty’s friend. Stinking RINOs.
“She gets a pass on this one. She would be unknown if it werent for McCain. She gets a pass.”
Of course she does... But this is Pissant’s dead horse, he has to beat it, just like he did Fred last time...
What’s this, 6 articles about Palin endorsing McCain that pissant has posted. The first one was news, all the rest is pissant hatred.
Imagine the trashing she would get if she were a “traitor” to the man who put her in the nat’l spotlight.
I F-ing hate McCain and all he has stood for but he finally did one thing in his slimy career, and that was to introduce a true conservative and human being to the national spotlight.
All conservatives should boycott this event to send a clear and unmistaken message to Sarah, who BTW I love, that loyalty and gratefullness does not trump fidelity to principle.
RINKS stick together.
Sarah is hurting herself... No one disputes the he is “hero.” that is not the problem.. it’s the POLITICIAN part we can’t stand!!! Sarah, do you see the difference?????
And we all know that should he get through the primaries, he and his bimbo daughter will be trashing Palin. Meghan has already hinted at it. Palin should insist on reading that idiot’s book before she stands beside that two-faced beast...Of coruse, it’s not being released until the end of August...conveniently AFTER the AZ primary.
Not necessarily. These are insider RINOs we're talking about. The crowd energy just won't be the same.
Pissant’s still miffed that the country didn’t get behind Duncan Hunter. LOL
Yep. You hit the nail right on the head there. McCain’s going to put the knife into Sarah’s back.
I agree. Look where “loyalty” and “collegiality” between congressmen, rather than loyalty as public servants to principles and constituents has gotten us. Does principle trump nothing anymore?
This doesn't seem that complicated.
Palin is a tool.
She’s going to insure he’s re-elected and we’ll be stuck with him again for years voting with Demoncraps.
Sarah, you are a disappointment to me.
What’s ‘Arminian’, just curious.
Well it does piss me off that poor folks like me are going to have to dig deep for JD to even put a dent in the $$ that the RINO establishment and Palin are putting into McCain’s coffers
This is easier than me trying to explain it:
Basically, it’s the majority theological school of thought within the church while Calvinism is the Biblical view. ;-)
That’s actually a fair point.
Not in today's America.
Party before principle.
Compromise regardless of consequences
Profits over patriotism.
So then there’s nobody to support in the McCain vs. Hayworth race?
Look, I do not support people that aid and abet political frauds, criminals etc. If your candidate is aiding this type of activity to any degree, he would not get my support. You however can vote for who you like.
Kneel, and kiss the shoes.
Coughing laughing coughing.
Thanks for fixing that quik FTJM.
I usually get the misspells pretty swift.
I sat an pondered that like a my brick brained Lab would with the head tilt and all.
RINKS? Heh thought I had run into somethin new there.
Here is Palin’s flip flop on McCain...
“...Some Alaska Republicans are conflicted over McCain, including Gov. Sarah Palin. They like his maverick reputation and military background but not his opposition to drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.
“She said she’d like to support McCain but felt she couldn’t at this particular time because of his stand on ANWR,” said the governor’s spokeswoman, Sharon Leighow.”

Then at the Govenor’s convention things changed ..
“...Palin is quick to note that she has not spoken to McCain or other national Republican leaders about the prospect. But it certainly came up when she was in Washington two weeks ago for a meeting of the National Governors Association. There, she rubbed elbows with other governors whose names have been bandied about for VP: Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, a Republican, and Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano, a Democrat.
Everyone treated it lightly, Palin said, including a former Texas governor who himself made the transition to the White House.
“We all had a meeting with President Bush and he said, ‘Look at all these vice presidents sitting here,’ “ Palin said in an interview last week. “Because Pawlenty was sitting next to me, and then Janet Napolitano was sitting on my other side.”
Ultimately, Palin said, she understands that while flattering, the buzz is less about her than it is about what she represents to the Republican Party.
“I recognize that any of the buzz surrounds the fact that I happen to fit a demographic that is appealing to the ticket right now,” Palin said. “That’s the reality. Again, I happen to fit a demographic at a time that the Republican Party needs to get with it and change and progress and allow others to be a part of public service. It’s gender, it’s age, it’s kind of the maverick being from the outside. It’s a combination of things.”

McCain never changed his stance on ANWR and to this day he never has.
Palin brushed off the prospect of becoming V.P., however in her book, she states:
“..I had met with McCain in Feburary of 2008 at the National Governors Association winter meeting in D.C. During a reception at the JW Marriott Hotel, Todd and I had spoken with the senator and Cindy.....”
The gist is; that meeting is when McCain was looking at Palin... And Palin knew she was being looked at.
And now Palin has lost her political swing by endorsing McCain and she went against what she said earlier when it came to McCain not being for ANWR.
She led Alaskan voters to think one thing, but she did another.
Yes, every one. Whether it is her endorsing him or actually appearing in person. I’m dramatic? C’mon....so you think these appearances/connections with the “take all your vitamins” RINO are helping?? Really?
And, yes, I do think that, overall, even though it’s how she made her appearance on the national scene. Ironically, that same connection to McCain and that campaign is her biggest obstacle....hopefully not her albatross.
Are you tapped into her head by telepathy?
“loyalty and gratefullness does not trump fidelity to principle.”
Erm, aren’t loyalty and gratefulness principles, too?
How many people has BO thrown under the bus when they began to hurt him politically?
Palin has said before “if I die politically, I die, but I’m going to do what I think is right.”
IMO, this is another one of those instances.
You know I can’t confirm or deny that.
This is FREERepublic, and I guess all opinions staying within the rules framework are welcome, but maybe you could spend more time trying to convince people in AZ why they should vote for JD Hayworth and less time being a tool for the Progressives who want to see Palin crash and burn.
You call yourselves conservatives sitting there at your keyboards waiting like vultures for another negative story on Palin so they can jump in with as much enthusiasm as a Kamikaze with a Flat-Top off the port wing.
Palin is not the enemy. They reside in D.C. and the war is on.
How’s that guilt by association working for ya?
DeMint endorsed Romney
Hunter endorsed Huckabee
Thompson endorsed McCain
Gingrich endorsed Scozzafava
Pawlenty endorsed McCain
The message from Governor Palin in THIS case takes MORE THAN one "handful" to communicate! ;)
Thanks for that list.
Where are all the hit piece FR post on those other names? Some on FR (a small minority) have such a vapid dislike and even hatred of Sarah Palin, and for no apparent reason other than believing the lies the mainstream media tells them, or from what they read on other FR post. Feeding off each others hatred. I cannot comprehend their close to insane antipathy towards her.
I always wanted to learn how to do hand of Sarah.
