Sarah Palin In The Villages In Florida
The Villages Welcomes Governor Sarah Palin
They were expecting 10,000 people to show up for a rally event in The Villages in Florida, but 60,000 showed up. And I was one of them! We got there earlier and we were glad we did because the lines were already really long to get through security at 11am. I had heard Sarah would be on stage between 3 and 3:30 and someone else said they had heard between 4 and 4:30. Whoever planned this event did a really poor job with time. Summer afternoons in Florida mean one of two things: Torrential downpours or blazing heat. We got blazing heat. People were dropping like flies despite the fact that volunteers were passing out free water. Now Sarah Plain can claim that people faint for her too, it’s not just the Messiah Obama’s thing. Sarah finally arrived at 4:30 and I was close enough to shake her hand, but chose to snap pictures instead.
Future Vice President Sarah Palin
Sarah thanked us all for the opportunity of visiting Walt Disney World on Saturday. I had a feeling she was spending that open day at my favorite place on the planet. Her children Willow, Piper and Trig were all with her. There were quite a few Democrats in the crowd with signs that they were for McCain. One of those crossover Democrats is my own partner. Another sign that I really loved said, “Our Lipstick Is Better Than Your Dipstick!” The AP reported: “But she was welcomed like a star, with tens of thousands cramming into a plaza and nearby streets in this enormous retirement community about an hour north of Orlando. Some waited more than five hours in 92-degree heat to see her speak for 23 minutes.” I have the sunburn to prove it! And here are those promised pictures of myself:

Sarah Palin gave the typical stump speech which raised cheers and then jeers when she talked about Barack Obama’s plans for the country. She promised smaller government. The early part of the speech was devoted to our recent economic woes. “We need serious reform on Wall Street. We need better regulation. It’s like Senator McCain said just yesterday — we don’t need a dozen federal agencies doing the job badly, we need the best agencies doing the job right,” she said. She continued, “This week when the economic crisis threatened the livelihood of millions of Americans, John McCain took a clear stand and he offered his own recovery plan. Our opponent refused to even take a stand on the position.”
