POLK CITY, Florida (CNN) - At a boisterous Sarah Palin rally in Polk City, Florida on Saturday afternoon, one name was surprisingly absent from the campaign décor - John McCain’s.
Watch: Palin campaigns in Polk City, FL Saturday
Looking around the Fantasy of Flight aircraft hangar where the rally took place, one could see all the usual reminders that it was a pro-McCain event. There were two large “Country First” banners hung on the walls along with four enormous American flags meant to conjure the campaign’s underlying patriotic theme. Many of the men and women in the audience wore McCain hats and t-shirts.
But on closer inspection, the GOP nominee’s name was literally nowhere to be found on any of the official campaign signage distributed to supporters at the event.
Members of the audience proudly waved “Country First” placards as Palin delivered her stump speech. Those signs were paid for by the Republican National Committee.
The other sign handed out to supporters read “Florida is Palin Country,” but those signs were neither paid for by the Republican National Committee nor the McCain campaign. In small print, the signs were stamped with the line “Paid for and authorized by Putnam for Congress" - as in, the re-election campaign of Florida congressman Adam Putnam, whose district skirts Polk City.
In fact, Putnam’s name was considerably more prominent than was McCain’s - his campaign had placed a number of large “Putnam for Congress” banners around the event site.

Palin is a loser just as McCain is
Johnny, you should have vetted Palin!
The Baracudar has come home to roost!
Lets try to make everyone believe McCain is the VP nominee. :)
Nice suit Sarah........that old thing has been hanging in your closet for years, right?......."you betcha".
It's amazing how so many have been fooled, but more, how many have been easily led.
OBAMA*BIDEN for a new direction.
Pallin is simply looking out for her future by forgetting the great man who put her where she is today. Cheney would not have even done that!!!!!!
Unpersoned....a fitting finale for a disposable hero.
If you win McCain you better hire a full time food taster. You sold your soul to the devil and now you have to live with it.
I'm so sick of Joe the Plumber. McCain and Palin see him as God-like. lol lol lol......Morons.
Reality is Reality.
l will vote obama 08. sarah go back to alaska
They're trying to cleanse the McCain-Palin ticket of the McCain????
THE- – – – MOST- – – – RIDICULOUS- – – – TICKET- – – – IMAGINABLE!
She is mind-boggling unbelievable.
It is McCain/Palin all the way.
This is what you get when you get a pitbull with lipstick...the lipstick eventually wears off and all you get is a crazy baboon.
It's staggering that McCain's name is nowhere. I guess the Repub's have given up the presidency and instead are focusing on trying to keep a few congressional seats.
hmm someone preparing for 2012 just incase? this is the most awkward campaign duo I've ever seen.
she got dreams of her own people. I knew it.
Did you not see the people standing behind her wearing McCian and Palin white t-shirts?
Of course. I think we all now know what her motives are. Palin, 2012? Laughable.
Obama should use this rally as a scare tactic! Palin is a footstep away in becoming president. Now that is scary!
WHERE ARE YOUR MEDICAL RECORD PALIN?
If you reporters have nothing better to do than following this loser I suggest that you look for other employment.
Now if she would also find a way to remove her own name ...she might have something.
This Nut has defected and stabbed her Boss in the Back even BEFORE she got the Job!!
WOW who in their right minds would trust her with ANYTHING???
