Palin to news media: Catch me if you can

Gettysburg, Pennsylvania (CNN) - Sarah Palin is going rogue again. Want to cover the potential Republican presidential candidate? Better bring your running shoes.

Unlike most carefully choreographed presidential campaigns that routinely release detailed candidate schedules, Palin's staff is keeping most of the national news media in the dark about her political action committee's bus tour this week.

    President Sarah Palin will completely purify and clean up the corruption of our lamestream media and expose their PINKO Leftist Socialist Commie Liberal Agenda. The media WILL get Palinized and be a true conservative media.

    Anyone who does differently from what other people do, is always put on own category. I do wonder why the media can not figure out this and leave her as she is!

    Palin said that this is an educational tour to showcase the nation's founding values. Of course, since the press is not there to cover Palin (The press does not know where she is on any given day or where she is going), no one will learn the lessons Palin is teaching. She is on a secret publicity tour. It only makes sense if you are a Republican and watch FOX News.

    Two things.

    One: I'm fairly certain she's keeping FOX in the loop as to where she is. Also, I'm fairly certain they are the only news outlet being granted on-bus access.

    Two: If she isn't going to give the news media a schedule, then maybe the news media SHOULDN'T COVER HER BECAUSE SHE ISN'T NEWSWORTHY! If and when she becomes a candidate, cover her. Then she becomes relevant. Until then, she's a paid pundit for Fox and nothing more. Stop idolizing her. CNN, your coverage yesterday of her "coming to Gettysburg" was pathetic.

    Democrats complained about Palin being the VP and voted in Wikileaks Biden. Chopped of their nose to spite their face.

    @Anonymous - What Sarah is doing is different from what other contenders-to-be are doing. For me this is quite new and not normal. If she is making a fool of herself then she belongs to her own category!

    May 31, 2011 12:51 pm at 12:51 pm |

    We just love the republicans that make themselves look stupid they make voting so easy OBAMA 2012!! Easily GOP U GUYS ARE A JOKE!!!

    If you were politically capable the right people will follow you. Right now you should keep running because you have nothing to say. when you have something concrete and a vision you can stop running. Till then do not stop.

    @Anthony: I totally agree with your assessment; with one exception: She isn't doing any "history teaching" lessons along the way. And if she is, they have some kind of conservative spin to it as opposed to an ACTUAL history lesson with just the facts of what happened. Example: Most Founding Fathers were deists. I'm fairly certain she thinks that deists means Christians. She'd be wrong.

    Lets cut to the chase, Sarah Palin is not running for President. She's doing the same thing Trump did, which is to get lots of publicity, because at the end of the day more publicity equals more money. I do think that who ever ends up being the main Republican Candidate in 2012, Sarah Palin will back them. I think that Michele Bachmann will run for President, but the person to really watch out for is Jon Huntsman. I think Pres. Obama will decisevely defeat the other Republican Candidates, but with Huntsman, I think the 2012 Election could be close; or that he could possibly beat Pres. Obama. Even though Huntsman seems like a nice guy, I hope none of them Republicans win. I think it means bad news for the country if they do.

  22. VA VERY Ex Republican

    OK I promised not to comment but I just can't. this woman knows how to drive me insane. Joe and Jane, I guess I found a way to get through to you assuming your think brains can at least consume what I am about to say. Sarah is using YOU for profit and here us the proof. Sarah is 47 years old born on Feb 11, 1964. If we assume the impossible case scenario that she made $100,000 per average per year from the day she was born till today and she paid zero dollar in taxes, she did not spend a single dollar, not even a penny then Sarah should have $4.7 million plus interest and let us say she earned $1 million in interest so total of $5.7 million. So can someone please tell me how she managed to earn over $15 million in 2009 and 2010 and God knows how much she will make in 2011. of course I did not pull the minimum $15 million figure out of my you know what since her tax records will prove that if she ever decide to run so Mr. Joe and Miss/Ms. Jane, if this is not profiting from your suffering then can you Sarah Palin is one of us supporters tell me what is it then???? if you can come up with a more convincing and logical answer than she is really profiting from my suffering then you are 100 million times smart than me and all the dumb turned to independent because of Mrs. Palin (See I did not even use the famous Sarah Airhead nickname and I called her Mrs. Palin)
