In Eugene, Palin says she eats granola too

Palin addressed a Republican fundraiser in Eugene, Oregon Friday.

(CNN) – Making light of the fact she was in one of America’s liberal bastions Friday night, Sarah Palin told attendees at an event in Eugene, Oregon she eats granola and organic food just like residents there do.

Speaking at the Lane County Republican's annual Lincoln Day Dinner, a major fundraising event for the organization, Palin told the crowd she’s more like people in Eugene than one might think.

“I eat granola. I eat a lot of organic food. I have to shoot and catch a lot of my organic food before I eat it,” the former Republican vice presidential nominee joked, according to the Oregonian.

Palin’s remarks also included the red meat jabs at Democrats that have become characteristic of her speeches this year, telling the crowd its OK for Republicans to be the “Party of No.”

"When the other party's wrong, we stiffen our spines," She told a crowd numbering 900, according to the Oregonian. "Why not be the party of not just no, but hell no.”

    I really like the organic hunting stuff. Like organic moose.? They must have had to go some to find 900 people willing to pay 250.00 a ticket in Eugene. And this was a fund raiser for what?? Palins pocket?

    Sarah Palin is laughing all the way to the bank from the money doled by the stupid and the naive. Hey guys, grow up. She is never going to make it. Instead some one who can think for themselves and articulate like Ron Paul or Romney.

    The joke is on all of Palin's followers like Niki who posted here.

    Palin is just another Republican shill, laughing her way to the bank as she trades on her 15-minutes of fame. She thinks she's so tough to go to Eugene (where I lived for 13 years and graduated from the University of Oregon) and say she eats granola.

    You want to impress the people of Oregon, Sarah? Debate on an issue of your choosing Senators Wyden or Merkely; or how about Governor Kulongoski or former Governor Kitzhaber; or even the dean of the U of O School of Journalism; or any one of the myriad successful, intelligent people living in our state.

    You wouldn't last a minute!

    Palin has been regurgitating the same crap for over a year now....that's what she gets the big bucks for, inciting garbage? This country has become the land of fools with Palin as their leader.

    Wow all these negative comments about a woman who is NOT even running; yet ask some of these "HATERS" about the votes their SENATOR/Congressman/women casted; they do not have a clue...More than likely vote to put them RIGHT back into office and the cycle will continue(no jobs, economy in the tank, two endless wars;"...but they will "HATE" on a person who is making money and do not have ANY political power what so ever NONE....

    We need authenticity and common sense. Sarah Palin exudes both! :)

    Unfortunately, the narcissistic, obtuse, obfuscating, misleader and demagogue of the free world has neither! Pray for the guy – he needs big time personal transformation!

    You full-off-hate liberals make me laugh. Your fangs come out, you foam at the mouth and you spew your venom at the mention of Sarah. Why is Sarah such a threat to you? Why is Sarah on your minds constantly? Why is Sarah in your conversations? For you morons who have not spent a dime on Sarah, you sure worry about those that do. You morons are such idiots, just look in the mirror and see who is the fool here. If we "keep feeding her bank account" what business is that of yours? You need to worry about your own lives or crawl back under that rock. You fools,...SARAH LAUGHING ALL THE WAY TO THE BANK!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    Oh why can't Dick Chaney take her out hunting before she inspires more nutcases to commit violence. Seriously people! It's amusing to hear her talk about terrorism while her target signs are akin to instigating domestic terrorism. She has no business excluding those she doesn't agree with from this country. She has no shame whatsoever! If elected she would be the first to resort to violence to solve a crisis. Her ignorance and lack of compassion for all living beings makes her a very dangerous person that has no business on the world stage. This is why we need a better education system in this country that way nut jobs like this will not threaten an otherwise sensible electorate.

    ANOTHER VIEW said: "Like her or not, Palin is a woman for conviction and internal strength that few have"

    If she was a woman of conviction, she would have finished out her ELECTED BY THE PEOPLE governorship. Instead, she sold her soul for the $14 million she has accumulated since she left office in mid-stream.

    Now that she's a millionaire, she can't claim that she's a hockey mom driving her kids to a soccer game – too rich and she's never home flying around on private jets and staying in luxury hotels. Soccer mom? Hunting her own food? GET REAL.

    Real Christians don't go around making personal attacks on their fellow human beings like she does.

    Just another Limbaugh, Coulter, Beck – making money off the right wing masses – all the while they could care less if their listeners survive or not.

    Palin for president – not just NO – HELL NO.
