Former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin made a stop in Tulsa Saturday.
"Hello, Tulsa!" she yelled at the 5,000 strong crowd, who gave her a standing ovation at the Convention Center..
Palin spoke during the "Taking our Country Back" tour. It's a conservative rallying point for those frustrated by the Obama administration.
"It is time to take our country back, and I thank you and honor you for being here to do this," Palin said.
Talk show host Glenn Beck was also a headliner for the event, along with country musicians John Rich and Gretchen Wilson.
People paid $100 and up for these tickets. The next and only scheduled stop on this tour is April 10th in Kansas City.
ah - nada?
If 5 pinkos gather, it's top of the news, above the fold...but 5,000 Tea Partiers - blackout
Tulsa who ?
A Crowd of 5,000 PING!
I knew she was coming and I like Sarah Palin and if she runs for some office I can vote for — I’m voting for her... But, I can tell you right now, I wasn’t going to pay no $125 to see her.... LOL...
I’ll vote for her and help on campaign stuff but not that... :-)

Americans should remember that the government works for them and not the other way around, former Alaska governor and vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin said Saturday in Tulsa.
"There's a growing movement across this country," she said. "It's beautiful and you're a part of it."
She and conservative television commentator Glenn Beck spoke at the Tulsa Convention Center at the kickoff of the "Taking Our Country Back Tour."
Palin told the packed crowd that regular, everyday Americans are standing up to politicians in Washington who don't listen to what the people want.
"We understand what they're trying to do to this country," she said. "We understand it and we don't like it. That's why we're taking our country back."
Palin took a few shots at President Barack Obama - whom the crowd booed - and the leadership in Congress.
Expanded government and continued federal spending will hurt the country, she said.
"There is no need for a fundamental transformation of America," she said. "No thank you, Mr. President, you can keep that change."
During his speech, Beck said that if the country doesn't change its direction, Americans will be remembered as greedy, corrupt and riddled with debt.
"If we don't change our course, that's what will be written into the history books," he said. "The winners write the history books, and if we don't change, we are losers."
With the aid of his infamous chalkboard, Beck took the audience through a brief history of American politics, saying that looking to Europe for ideas is and was a mistake.
"American's has the idea of the rights of you, not the collective rights," he said.
An animated Beck attacked progressives, saying they are for revolutionary government intrusion and misinterpret the Constitution.
"They hide everywhere," he said.
He called on Americans to look back at the country's history and resurrect the pride of the founders and implored the audience to stand up to the government now and learn from the mistakes of the recent past.
Tulsa is the first stop for the tour, which is scheduled to travel across the nation with a variety of conservative superstars.
Palin resigned as Alaska governor in July and has since become a political commentator for the Fox News television network. After her bid for the White House as John McCain's vice president failed in 2008, she has been mentioned as a possible candidate for president in 2012.
Beck is host of the daily show "Glenn Beck" on Fox News and is also a nationally syndicated talk radio host.
where are all the links to MSM coverage
MSM coverage on Post #8 ... :-)
The next and only scheduled stop on this tour is April 10th in Kansas City.
Is this only a two stop tour?......... Confused by the above quote in the article.
Tulsa World-—”Conservative Idol Trio”. WTH? We don’t have IDOLS.
The article says BORe is included? He’s no conservative.
The article says BORe is included? Hes no conservative.
Well, it's true though -- that's who was there -- it was a "three-some" ... Glenn Beck, Bill O'Reilly, and Sarah Palin...
But, Sarah is the popular one, so she gets head billing... :-)
I see Sarah Palin has at least 16 speeches through 5 June in various states.
Some of them:
Sarah speaking at the Kickoff for Tea Party Express 3/27
in Searchlight, NV (Harry Reid’s home town)
- Look out Harry, You Are Toast -
And several more.
I wouldn’t let “headlines” bother you too much... they’re made a certain way to sell newspapers... LOL ...
Yeah, Bill is a big star on FR. LOL
He works both sides of the street
SOB has abused FR more than once on his show.
Come on Star Traveler, you should have been there. I paid $45.00 and got a great seat, right in the center but up a few rows and toward the back of course.
Maybe..., but I don’t need any more psyching up... I’ll do the work and support, ya know... but leave me out of the jumping and hollering and yelling... :-)
Okay. You’re doing a great job. Thanks for all the links.
Don’t forget her big fund raising events here in AZ. I wonder if people will show up outside these events in protest of McCain.
There are areas I don’t agree with McCain but the overkill
on McCain, setting up as a strawman, is typical Left wing
Most of the same who overkill with McCain find no problem
with the NeoLeftist Ron Paul, his anti War rants, his support and money from 9/11 Truthers.
Voting Not to condemn Ahmadinejad and stating Iran and North Korea are no threat, leave them alone.
along with his rants against Israel.
Sounds good to me.
that is great.
She draws crowds everywhere. They are just longing for her to take charge and rescue us all.
