Photo of Todd and Sarah pictures exactly what we would be soooo proud representing us in Washington....wonderful presentation of our Country!
Nope. It's a smartphone. You call, text, email and communicate with it. :-)
The rally is being delayed because of the storm moving through the area.
I feel strangely compelled to gather up animals in pairs...#IA
If they’re gonna make all these people wait in the rain for 2 hours+ to hear her..they should change the schedule....I hope someone has some common sense..
At about 1:25, Singleton mouths some silent words to the audience about Sarah running. Can you or anybody else reading this make out what he’s saying?
Go, Sarah, GO!
It has begun on C-Span
The schedule clearly lists her last.
Live on C Span now.
Is there a live stream somewhere Rin? My mom just told me she is already on? I thought it was suppose to be at 1:15?
Yeah.. I just tuned in online about 30 seconds ago ;^)
I’d guess online at C-Span. That’s what I’ll have to rely on since I don’t have cable anymore.
According to the small banner on CSPAN Palin’s scheduled to speak, 2:15 eastern.
Less than 2 hours from now.
That rendition of the national anthem was a bit painful.
That doesnt seem to be a very large crowd.
I can’t find it, some boring guy talking about ATT
The audio is terrible!
I have my TV turned up almost to the max and it’s still bad.
WHO talker Simon Conway on now.
Oooh....shouldn’t have made that bet. Sarah’s team spent considerable effort squashing the rumors that she’d announce at this event, a couple of weeks ago.
Sure would be nice, but the message from the Palin camp is that this ain’t the day.
Yes, CSpan is covering online too. Also at RightScoop I think and LIVE FEED TODAY: The Tea Party America Rally from Iowa .http://www.rightspeak.net/2011/09/live-feed-today-tea-party-america-rally.html?utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter
I just have some idiot from the white house talking about cell service.
Is is me or does CSpan Suck, I getting some Obamaton on tape when I click on that link, thank G_d it on TV...
Probabaly a lot of them went back to their cars/buses to wait out the rain while the undercard acts go on.
Move Sarah up in the schedule, please!!
This seem a bit unorganized. A little embarrassing. Any idea how many people there? CSpan only showing tight shots. No wide pans of the crowd. Typical.
I cant imagine that many. From what Ive seen there cant be more the 100 people there.
C-SPAN TV is working, but the audio is a bit low.
Alaskans4Palin.com #IA #palin CPAN live now- iphone has great CSPAN app if you cant watch TV you can listen to audio
C-SPAN TV is working, but the audio is a bit low.
Well, it was just pouring rain.
She won't wait that long. She'd miss at least a couple important filing dates in October. I'm leaning toward late September now.
Then again, this is Sarah we're talking about. She could announce the day before the Republican debate to suck all of the air out of the news cycle. Better yet, on the day of Bambi's "big jobs speech".
Glockady’s link is working better
Click TPA Rally 1 button — it connects to C-Span live feed of tea party. I just tried it.
Is the event in Des Moines?
Weather Channel has a four-hour forward looking predictive radar map, showing the storm breaking almost exactly at 1:15pm for Des Moines.
Thank you for that link!!! I was getting tired of listening to the AT&T queer >.<
On now, Sam Clovis, talker from KSCJ. Hope he has more stage presence than the other guy. The other guy’s speech probably read well, but as a speech it was flat.
Romney has good hair too, but he wasn’t known as an airhead or as “Mr. Goodhair” when he was governor.
Sorry make that the Weather Channel website. Weather.com
Bummer - it uses flash so the c-span link doesn’t work on iPad.
This is going to be used as evidence that Palin has no support unless there is something I dont see going on.
Evidence to you, perhaps.
It’s own now reg C-span at the above address - They must be playing delayed
This Sam Clovis guy is pretty funny, and he speaks without a teleprompter.
A Brit at the TEA Party? :)
Trying to pick up on my phone as I have dial up. My mom said she was on now...(a few minutes ago actually). VERY FRUSTRATED...keep losing signal
I’m in Missouri so it’s 1:15 cst...
Can you get it on the link in post 145? They are just starting the National Anthem on that link-—so that link is about 1/2 hr delayed
Evidence to me? How did you get that I see this as lack of support. I believe that I said its going to be used as evidence. Cheese, dont get so defensive.
