Weather disrupts Palin's campaign stops

CANTON, Ohio (CNN) – Sarah Palin is postponing visits to Cincinnati and Dayton as the remnants of Hurricane Ike torment southern Ohio and northern Kentucky.

High winds have killed several people in Ohio and left thousands without power.

The vice presidential candidate had been scheduled to spend the night in Cincinnati Monday and hold a fundraiser there on Tuesday. She had also planned to spend that night in Dayton before holding a fundraiser in town the following morning.

Palin and John McCain will proceed as planned with their joint rally in the Youngstown area, in northwest Ohio, on Tuesday afternoon. The event will be their first appearance on the trail together since Palin departed for Alaska last Wednesday.

“Due to the state of emergency, and to avoid a possible diversion of personnel and resources, Gov. Palin’s visits to the Cincinnati and Dayton areas have been postponed to a later date. Tomorrow’s rally in the Mahoning Valley will continue as planned,” said a statement released by the campaign.

    She can go back to Alaska and stay there as far as we are concerned.
    Although, it seems that many Alaskans don't want her there either.

    Great to see they had a Anti-Palin Rally with majority showing up to support it. Their chants "No Way, No How, No Palin"

    I love you Alaska for showing the world what she truly stands for.

    Wow! Following Palin's recent statements that God has a hand in everything from our war in Iraq to a natural gas pipeline in Alaska (she stated that "God wants the pipeline to be built.") it would seem that God doesn't want Palin on the campaign trail in Ohio. I hear the weather in Alaska is excellent right now. Great flying weather. Great speech-reading weather. Take the hint, Sarah!

    You sure it was the Obama storm that is ground her. Or it could be the 1500 Anti-Palin protest in Alaska.

    Palin..If I were you, I will drop out now to save your face.

    LOL

    This is hillarious.

    Palin has to go see off her son.
    Palin has to Campaigne with McCain by her side.
    Palin gets stuck in bad weather, when the GOP knew where the strom was headed.

    It seems like the GOP dont want Sarah to speak.

    The wonderful people in Cincinnati and Dayton aren't missing anything. Palin continues to lie even though she has been proven that she is lying. Does she think the American People are stupid.

    Enough with the lipstick. It's the economy stupid.

    You can't change Washington with the same old economic's.

    A fresh beginning with Obama/Biden.

    Stupid weather, how dare you attack our Palin. She is the only reason why we won the Cold War. She faced down the Soviet threat and kept Alaska safe from Terrorist..... America would be so lucky if she becomes president. You Libs and your science and logic have no place in American Society.

    She was only going to say:
    - I sold the jet on ebay
    -If we want a bridge we'll build one ourselves(but she kept the money).
    Thanks but no thanks, Paliar.

    We have a Harvard Grad Constitutional Scholar who is being demonized by a maverick (reckless, follow no rules).

    WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO THIS COUNTRY? Where is OUR HONOR? We have none – McCain has none.
