By scheduling an appearance in Missouri with Glenn Beck on October 7, Sarah Palin has destroyed the charade that she is undecided about running in 2012.
The ad for the October 7 Palin/Beck show is pure comedy gold,
Join FM NewsTalk 97.1 as two of our country’s leading conservative standard bearers share the same stage. Sarah Palin first made history on December 4, 2006 when she was sworn in as the first female governor of Alaska. In August 2008, Senator John McCain tapped her to serve as his vice-presidential running mate in his presidential campaign, making her the first woman to run on the Republican Party’s presidential ticket.
Glenn Beck, known for his quick wit, candid opinions, and engaging personality, has attracted millions of viewers and listeners throughout the United States with The Glenn Beck Program. His radio show is heard on over 400 stations. It is the third highest-rated national radio talk show among adults ages 25 to 54.
Do not miss this once in a lifetime opportunity to witness the fusion of two intellectual conservatives as they Defend the Republic on the Family Arena stage.
In what strange bizarro universe can Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin be considered intellectuals? If this fusion of two intellectual conservatives is what I think it is, then this rally should not be held within a hundred miles of a Family Arena.
After trying to tease the media with an appearance at the Iowa State Fair, Sarah Palin just blew the illusion to smithereens that she might run for president in 2012. Palin isn’t going to decide to run, and then bail on a paying gig. This “rally” isn’t free. The tickets are $20-$97, and there is no way that Palin and Beck would risk having to refund money to disgruntled customers. Sarah Palin can’t announce at an event like this because then she would have to report it to the FEC, and she would not be able to keep the cash for herself.
Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck have become the equivalent of those 80s hair metal bands who hit the road together every summer. Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck will become the right wing Motley Crue and Poison, or if you are a “more experienced” music fan, Palin and Beck are on the path to being Cheap Trick playing the state fair.
Soon Beck and Palin will be playing the podunk conservative circuit and the dozens in attendance will go wild when Beck launches into his big hit, “Alinsky,” just as they do when the first strains of “Pour Some Sugar On Me,” hit the amphitheater walls at a Def Leppard show. (To be fair, Leppard will easily and forever outdraw Palin and Beck). The crowd will leap to their feet just like they are hearing the opening piano chord of “Sail Away” as soon as Palin shrieks her big hit, “Death Panel.”
It is a pretty safe bet that Sarah Palin isn’t going to run for president. She has no money, no campaign staff, and no organization. At this point if she ran she would be a total non-factor. The pollsters are so confident that she isn’t jumping in that they have stopped including her name in their 2012 polls, and judging from the scant non-Fox News coverage that her visit to the Iowa State Fair attracted, the television networks aren’t buying it either.
Sarah Palin is just angling for attention. She will be in Missouri in October trying to party like it’s September 2008, while the rest of the Republican Party has moved on to choosing new leadership for 2012.
Move over Night Ranger, Sarah Palin is hittin’ the oldies circuit.
