RICHMOND, Virginia (CNN) – Sarah Palin mistakenly reprimanded her own supporters at an outdoor rally in Richmond on Friday after they started yelling that they couldn’t hear the candidate.
Palin was in the midst of blaming predatory lenders for the nationwide mortgage crisis when a large group of supporters in the rear of the crowd began demanding that someone turn up the volume on the event’s speakers.
They chanted “Louder! Louder!” in unison, drawing the attention of other audience members, who began chanting “Sarah! Sarah!”
The vice presidential candidate apparently mistook them for some of the anti-war protesters that have disrupted some of her previous events.
“I would hope at least that those protestors have the courage and the honor of thanking our veterans for giving them the right to protest,” Palin told them, drawing a roar from the crowd.
She then returned to her speech.
“We’re going to walk with those who are under the wrong mortgage and get them a fixed rate mortgage that will help them keep their homes,” she said.
No doubt, this woman illuminates every one of our day with her intelligence. Manchourian candidate, without the brain chip.
not surprised – her first response is to spew negative campaign rhetoric rather than even understand the situation.
poor, poor, Sarah..."and so it goes", (as heard so many times from the late great Linda Ellerbee.
Interesting, same comeback she gave last week at a Rally when people disagreed with her??? SCRIPT!!!!!
So because people would disagree with her, makes them unpatriotic? Like they don't respect veterans? Give me a break crazy!
What a bloomin' idiot she is, doncha know. You betcha!
...is this another mistake by Gov. Palin or just another example of why Gov. Palin is a mistake?
This is hilarious. This just keeps getting better and better. Does anyone listen to her anymore anyway, she has already been exposed as a power abusing liar and cheat. Go back to Alaska, because we do not want you here!!
She's as dumb a stone idol.
The Republican's campaign has also suffered from a legislative probe in Alaska that found his vice-presidential running mate and state governor, Sarah Palin, had abused her power.
Get Lost you idiot!
I LOVE this woman. She missed her calling as a comedian. She gives a laugh everyday. I am going to miss her when she goes back to Alaska in 22 days. LOL!! ;-)
not really news worthy... would have been nice to see if she identified what they were saying... but based on her recent interview answers, something tells me she desn't understand much that's said to her. kind of like... Bush?
Wow, she actually prepared a comeback this time :)
She is so out of touch. She loves to hear her own voice of unreason.
I dont know how people can listen to this woman.
Why am I not surprised?
That was probably written in as part of the script.
Go home Sarah, while you still have the job as governor.
Yet ANOTHER blunder. I guess this will only end on November 4th.
Doesn't she understand anti-war protestors DO support our troops??!! (but they don't support their bad leadership aka Bush which is what they're protesting)
Just because someone doesn't believe in war doesn't mean they don't honor our troops courage/sacrifices.
I'm an Obama supporter and this is not news.
She's lying about everything. I don't trust her. I no longer have respect for her or McCain.
