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.
