(CNN) – Former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin announced Tuesday she will make appearances at Tea Party gatherings in Nevada and Massachusetts over the next two months.

In a blog post on the conservative Web site Townhall.com, Palin defended her decision to speak at the Tea Party convention in Nashville, Tennessee this weekend and said she looks forward to greater participation with the movement in the coming weeks.

The former Alaska governor said she will be on hand next month for a kickoff rally for the Tea Party Express III bus in Searchlight, Nevada - the hometown of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid who finds himself in a tough re-election battle. Palin also said she will head to Boston in April for a Tea Party meet-up there.

"The process may not always be pretty or perfect, but the message is loud and clear: We want a government worthy of the fine Americans that it serves," Palin said. "And we're going to keep spreading that message one convention, one town hall, one speech and one election at a time."

    The tea party is exciting, but I fear it has no controls. The tea party is too much to the extreme right for me. These conservative extremists want to maintain some failed policies I no longer support, the continued failed drug policy that wastes billions of tax dollars a year, not to mention the lives of law enforcement and innocent bystanders, the Tea Party stance against the right to choose, their stance against gays like they do not even have a right to exist. To me the tea parties are all for the constitution when it works in their favor, much the same for the extreme liberals as well. But do not want to hear all that talk about personnel Liberty and Freedom.

  5. Palin > Obama

    Love her or hate her, nobody can say that Palin proposed one of the worst budgets of all time.

    How bad is the budget? Well, Obama has 'income' in the budget for taxes and fees that haven't even been created, yet (cap and trade). The Freeze is a political stunt that is so insignificant that it is laughable to bring it up. The debt is continuing to skyrocket.

    Obama's economic advisors need to be fired. And Obama needs to shut his mouth and study the problems we are facing before forcing through a 3rd 'stimulus' spending package (titled 'job creation legislation')

    Palin isn't exactly the best representative for the Tea Party movement. She represents everything the Tea Party is against. Her actions show she favors growth of governmnet and enacted a huge tax on oil companies in Alaska. Sounds like the Tea Party is beginning to be infiltrated with phony convservatism--much like what caused the downfall of the GOP.

    Palin really believes that the TEA PARTY elected Scott Brown!!! Poor unfortunate SOUL!!! It was the Independents and Scott Brown already admitted it had NOTHING to do with the TEA PARTY!!!

    "The process may not always be pretty or perfect, but the message is loud and clear: We want a government worthy of the fine Americans that it serves,"

    WHAT AMERICANS??? Ms. Sarah you GO ON with your Ignorant definition of FINE AMERICANS because YOU and those SAME so-called FINE AMERICANS are in for a RUDE AWAKENTING!!!!

    Its all about the money. Sarah Palin knows as well as the rest of us that she will never be president. She is however wise enough to keep her name in print so that she can command huge fees to speak and such.
    She may not be intelligent enough to run the country, but she's no dummy either.

  12. If you want something ruined, put a republican in charge

    If Palin really cared about our country, she would not obstruct and lie about allowing government to serve the fine Americans it served.
