Posted on 05/26/2013 9:38:00 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Former Alaska governor and Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin won over racing fans this weekend at the Indianapolis 500, again showing how well she resonates with people because she genuinely loves retail politics and meeting them.
As was observed, that genuineness--and patience--cannot be faked. Palin met with people in the lobby of the hotel she was staying at on Saturday night, and those who observed her noticed how patient she was with everyone as they asked for her time. It is worth noting that those who do not even have as many speaking engagements and television appearances as requests Palin has had to deny often find interacting with supporters to be a burden. Not Palin.
Palin also encountered Breitbart News and Breitbart Sports writer extraordinaire Mary Chastain, an avid racing fan who was at the Indy 500 this weekend, as can be seen in photo below.
Parnelli Jones, the 1963 Indy 500 champ, invited the Palins this weekend. Jones and the Palins will reportedly go caribou hunting sometime in Alaska....

Pray for her and hers, and for America.
Madam President flexing her muscles...
Parnelli Jones. Now THAT is a name from the past.
He was a big off road racer also. Loved those hot engined Broncos. (Big Oly)
I didn’t vote for mccain...I voted for Palin.
I wish she had run in 2012!
I hope she hangs on to that lanyard and uses it again.
Governor Palin just posted the following on Facebook:
With grateful hearts Americans recognize how sweet it is to live in a country where men and women offer to serve something greater than self. They choose to support and defend the Constitution to preserve our rich heritage, they deny themselves comfort to secure our well-being, and they sacrifice their personal freedom daily that we may enjoy liberty in perpetuity. Thank you cannot do justice to the gratitude we feel for our nations finest.
This year, more than ones prior, I am especially mindful of those who have served and those who gave their all. Contemplating the September 11th terrorist attack in Benghazi, our governments targeting of conservative patriots, snooping into reporters personal communications records, the usurping of Second Amendment rights how can one not notice the disregard for our Constitution? Our military men and women risk their lives to uphold our rights. They deserve better than to have their sacrifice trampled on by people who pretend to have heard nothing, seen nothing, and therefore can say nothing about abusing their power over We the People. Americans deserve better. Certainly our military veterans honor deserves better. (By the way, pleading the Fifth while showing no regard for the First is as bold an exercise in adding insult to injury as I have ever seen.)
It is time to declare, Enough is enough. Its time to halt the fundamental transformation of the country our soldiers have given all to preserve.
Traditionally Memorial Day is the unofficial start of summer, replete with family outings, barbecues, and parades. As much as we enjoy these wholesome American pastimes, this observance represents so much more. For the love of all who have ever worn the uniform, as a memorial to the service rendered, and in the spirit of those who paid the price we can never repay, may we mark this day by committing ourselves to the fundamental restoration of the greatest country on the face of the earth.
Happy Memorial Day. We will never forget.
- Sarah Palin
Hah you in the blue coats. One of you hold the umbrella and the other one get my golf clubs.
I think God is constructing an off-ramp for Palin haters that goes straight to the ninth circle of hell. Just sayin’.
What a lucky guy
Good for Parnelli.
Keep the faith. Bide your time. It's coming now, and nothing can stop it. BTT
A handsome couple.
Thank you Bratch and thank you onyx for the posts of pictures.
Sarah won?! Wow, she is one amazing lady!
And I hear Tiger Woods finally hacked-up that hairball.
That’s great too.
tumblin “I just read the headlines” dice
Yeah, she beat all the fans to win the race....
Ping to the Todd Palin is a Hunk! list. Here’s hoping we’re looking at a future President and First Dude of these United Stats.
Thank you you so much, dearest Jem!
I absolutely love that picture of First Dude and knew you would!
Mr and Mrs America!
We pray that one day, Madam President and First Dude!
Sarah was also at the Pacers game tonight(Unfortunately they lost..UGH they played NO defense, Ok moving on) its so wonderful seeing Sarah so happy..and she is genuine, she is a good person..it pains me to see the hate she gets from the left..I will never understand it..but it makes me happy seeing Sarah and her family having a great time, I hope one day to call Sarah Palin President Palin
Didn’t FLOTUS get booed last year, when they announced her name?
It is a result of the Lame Stream Media that Obama has been able to build a regime deep in corruption. Their First Amendment protections have not given America any benefit. It has not created any watch dogs in the media. Instead, we have only neutered lapdogs worried about imaginary race cards.
While our freedom of the press is squandered by the useful fools of the Marxist Left, America is slouching towards Gomorrah. Our moral society, governed by Natural Law, is now being replaced by moral relativism. This encourages Big Government to do anything it wants and the Constitution be damned.
Our men and women in our military are being used as testing grounds for social engineering policies that drives them crazy. These poor souls are slaves to be used and abused by a government too big to care. But what is unforgivable is the honor to them on this Memorial Day is being forgotten as a custom of the past like something out of George Orwell's 1984. When the Left is done with our military, it will too be like them, neutered lapdogs for freedom.
Nice. Baja 1000 winner meets Iron Dog. Very cool.
The only “media” that ever really stood up to Obama has been from the “new” media of talkradio and the internet.
Why doesn’t this young lady Paylin run for public office?
Just from this newspaper, it looks like she has a lot of people skills and intelligence. She also looks very attractive, at least in these pictures, standing there with her husband Ted. With so many squishy politicians ducking the issues and quitting their jobs these day, I think this young lady should stand up and run for something.
A Blessing that quite frankly, this country does not deserve.
“Sarah so happy..and she is genuine, she is a good person..it pains me to see the hate she gets from the left..I will never understand it”......
The lefties (and old line REPUBS) hate Palin because they are truely afraid (like scared shi&less) of her and her abilities. She is a leader and a “getter done” type person. If she ever gets a chance to use those skills, the lefties and old line Repubs will see the raft of God dropped on them.
I do, very much. I pray that God does not remove His protection and guidance from this once great country. To me it all starts with a respect for life, from conception to natural death and once that is gone it is a long, slow slog to the fate of Sodom and Gomorrah.
God's law as handed down to us by Moses begins with the command that we are to have but one God and no false gods. We have replaced Him with the god of the state. I pray and cry sometimes for this country.
the raft of God
Funny, I always thought that was wrath of God...
but I suppose it could be raft.
Joe was near drowning but then the raft of God
fell from the sky and ...knocked him unconcious
just before he was eaten by a great white shark.
Oh yeah, don’t forget they are made of grapes
as in trampling out the vintage where the grapes of
raft are stored.
And Mr. and Mrs. Palin are the faces of the real America, the country that I remember so fondly from the Memorial Days (or even Decoration Days) from the 40s and 50s. The contrast is self-evident:
Such a great couple....it would have been great to have them represent our country! Even though easy to understand why Palin didn’t run...it would have been so good for the country...;(
“First Dude of these United States....”
Ok...I could look at that on a daily basis without blinking an eye.
