Palin headed to Texas, Virginia, and Georgia

 Sarah Palin will speak in Texas, Virginia and Georgia next week.
Sarah Palin will speak in Texas, Virginia and Georgia next week.

(CNN) - Sarah Palin says she's "looking forward to heading down to the Lower 48 for some great events," as she speaks in Texas, Virginia, and Georgia over the next week.

The former Alaska governor and 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee will address the crowd at the Oil Palace in Tyler, Texas, as part of the tourist attraction and entertainment venue's Conservative Voices in America, according to her facebook page and The Oil Palace website.

"Sarah Palin's appearance caps a year of providing a forum for some of the most important Conservative Voices in America," says Oil Palace manager Jim Couch, in a statement on the venue's website.

Texas Gov. Rick Perry will also attend, but a campaign spokesman says his appearance is not a political event. Palin has endorsed Perry as he run's this year for re-election for a third full term in office.

The next day Palin addresses the audience at the Freedom Fest 2010, in Norfolk, Virginia. The event, sponsored by a conservative talk radio station, is billed as a "salute to our military and first responders."

"If you're free that day, you can join me, Oliver North, and George Allen at the Ted Constant Convocation Center on the campus of Old Dominion University," says Palin on her facebook page.

On Tuesday, June 29, according to her facebook page, Palin heads to Atlanta for the P.U.R.E. Celebration sponsored by Zachariah's Way at the Gwinnett Arena.

Palin says Zachariah's Way is "a wonderful organization committed to serving our special needs community."

Palin's two-year old son Trig has Down syndrome.

  3. Save America, impeach the treasonous republicans

    The goddess of big oil will be speaking at the Oil Palace. What a line up of unAmericans with Ollie the arms seller North, George Macacca, and the princess of the AIP.

  4. GOP is bad for America

    DRILL, BABY, DRILL -- er, oops, would that be Spill, Baby, Spill. Nevermind, Palin doesn't care, she still advocates for drilling. We just need more government to make sure another spill doesn't happen, but wait doesn't she advocate for less and less government? Palin is a walking contradiction who can't keep her own story straight. She does, however, make a nice living for herself (thanks to her idiotic fans) by simply saying the opposite of President Obama no matter what the subject. Most people are onto her game (and her lack to any real knowledge about anything), but there will always be that base of right wing extremists who think she is great.

    Well...no better place for the nutcases of the world to meet than the "Oil Palace".

    She's one of the "most important conservative voices in America."

    And that's hilarious, because she's an absolute idiot and a total con-artist.

    Conservativism has failed. If it's really the best way to do things, then why isn't the American South – which elects conservatives more consistently than any other region – leading the rest of the country? Instead, those states have the most poverty, the worst health care, the worst education, the highest infant-mortality rate, etc.

    Palin is a joke, and so is the party she represents.

    She has been out of sight for almost two weeks? Probably more botox and face peeling.
    It can't be more of those perky new girls.
    The only special needs person in that family is this toxic freak of a woman.

    CNN- give us a break. Is this news?

    What a sad state of affairs to have anyone waiting for the Alaskan Air Head to speak about anything.

    I'm sure the Pat Robertson clan will cheer for her high-nass in Norfolk. Please keep her there as long as you like. What a joke this air-head is. The crowd will be filled with old white men gawking at her while getting all riled up with ignorance and hate speach. Yuck.

    If she's so great, why doesn't she dive down in the Gulf and plug up the BP blowout. She's a real blowhard anyways.
