Palin to visit Fort Hood during book tour

[cnn-photo-caption image= caption="Palin will visit the Army base in early December."]WASHINGTON (CNN) - Sarah Palin will travel to the Fort Hood Army post in early December as part of her national book tour, Palin's publisher confirmed to CNN Friday.

The December 4 visit will come roughly one month after a mass shooting on the base that left 13 people dead and 38 wounded.

The stop, which had not been previously announced, is scheduled for the same day Palin signs books at a store in in the Dallas area.

The former Alaska governor is also making an appearance at Fort Bragg in North Carolina during her tour.

The visit was first reported by the Wall Street Journal.

    Go ahead Liberals, or paid hacks, which ever you are, but come 2010 the House will return to us. So, you better start to be nice to the people on the way up, cause it will be the same people you see on the way down.

    All of you women bashing her. Admit it. She's hot, you're not. If she was as ugly as Pelosi you would care less about her. Annoying isn't she. Attractive and smart. Just your opposite. Keep up the good work ladies. The world needs characters.

    As a family member here at Ft. Hood, please, not all of us are conservatives, we do not need her self-aggrandizing garbage rolling through town immediately after a tragedy. Has this woman no shame? (Rhetorical question)

    Why not smear on some pig blood and keep playing the role of the victim.

    I hope Eric isn't married because with all the Palin comments he leaves, it's obvious he's smitten with her.

  13. thanks, but no thanks

    l am sick and tired of this woman. What does this mean for our society? Is this the best conservatives can come up with. As for liberals being afraid serving in the army, let me remind you conservatives that the last reborn christian president hid behind his dad to avoid Vietnam. l have lot of respect for John Kerry for what he stood and fought for. The Conservatives have used our military time and time again for their gains. Thank god we have a president who thinks before he acts. Kicking butt.. do you people have development of a 4 year old???? She is white trash and needs to go away. She is an embarasment to our country. She went to Asia and bashed our president. Can anyone imagine if someone so called liberal did that? She is a disgrace to our country.

    CNN her book tour is on her page if we want to know where she is we can look; what is that every single move you are reporting on Palin there is something not right. My is she in the political tickler, she is a governor that quit and the second woman to run for VP both non electable. Everyone acts on an opinion that she will run; has Palin come out and stated. At this time, she is a CITIZEN and that is it. Most comments printed in these blog are facts some researched facts, Now CNN delete because everytime I type on this egotiscal woman that is what you do.

    Let's all be real for a minute.

    Sarah Palin had a following BEFORE McCain picked her. There were two websites dedicated to her accomplishments. She boosted McCain's approval ratings the minute she was added to the ticket and for a few short weeks helped McCain have an edge in the polls.

    Sarah Palin will CONTINUE to be popular amongst the middle class people who work hard, shop at Wal-Mart, go to community college to get their grades up and go to a small local college to finish out their degrees.

    Sarah Palin will continue to incite hatred in foaming at the mouth liberals who love to post vicious gossip on CNN blogs, not in middle America.

    Middle Americans will continue to get upset over show-trials in NY of all places for Terrorists, or photo ops of flag drapped coffins, or pushing through legislation they don't agree with.

    So, why don't all the haters IGNORE Palin and let her be popular with those that love her and find her geniune and connect with her values.

    Stop pretending that you constant calls for her to "go away" will have any effect what so ever and will probably perpetuate the daily Palin-Ticker.

    She could do the families of the fallen alot more good if she just donated the money she will spend on the trip to the fund for the victims' families.

    No shame!...Mrs. Palin, everything is not about YOU!

    I am just mortified everytime I think that this woman was considered as VEEP for our country. Thank goodness they lost!
    I shutter and shake in my shoes each time I see her face or read something about her. What a joke she is. Dysfunctional family, uneducated, cannot control her own children, on and on.

    Whew, when will we be finished with her?

    Please, why would she be allowed to come to Fort Hood?????
    She spreads hate and deceit when she opens her mouth. Our soldiers do not need to be exposed to her.
    Can anyone stop this???
    Please stop her at Fort Hood and all the other places.

    My My My... Her so called "real American's tour". This individual, and others like her, (Hannity, Beck, Limbaugh, Colter etc. are ripping America apart.

    I'm still amazed at the number of Palin haters that still go out of their way to make their hatred for her known, almost a year after the election. And then I realize why. It's because they're scared. Scared of the truth. Scared of what she stands for. Scared for the good she inspires. Scared of what the country could be with her as a leader.

    Their hatred for her is so strong they are blinded at how badly our country is being run by Obama and his Chicago thugs. Then again, they love Obama because most of them are the same people standing in line waiting for their free hand outs from "Obama's stash."

    All you Palin haters really need to get jobs and do something useful with your time. It's hard to take you seriously when you are all on every government program out there. If you want people to take you seriously, try contributing to this country instead of leeching off of those who do.

  23. once upon a horse

    wow if Michelle Obama had just written a book and did this the far right would be all over her..yet I doubt if Rush and Glenn will do nothing but sing praises for her. She should be at a tea party right now instead of doing this
