Palin to hit Tea Party events in Nevada, Massachusetts

[cnn-photo-caption image= http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2010/images/02/03/art.palinparty.gi.jpg caption="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."](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."

    I live near Boston, and I think all of us should make a coordinated effort to throw this woman into Boston Harbor! She wants to ride the Tea Party express...well – we should give it to her – DIRECTLY.

    I am so done with CNN's political ticker. There are three Palin threads on here today. It's Palin all day, everyday. CNN is the turning into TMZ. Pathetic!

    She loves the spot light and the cash.
    Who can blame her, but don't anyone even think it's for anything but the attention and cash. Nothing new.

    LOL, "fine Americans." Hey you "fine Americans" of Massachusetts: are you her target market? I always thought better of you. Sensible, I thought. Pragmatic New Englanders. Next thing you know you'll be passing the snakes.

    she certainly did not know how to give alaskans the government they deserves but now she knows how to spread a message that people want a government worthy of the fine American that it serves.
    This person wants to spread racist hate wherever she goes. she is very comfortable doing it because she hides behind a clock of blogs, limited outreach, loyalty to fox network and continual distractions of what she is all about. even her so called support of conservative tea party candidates in states is all about how much she can get and who will owe her. since sarah continues to serve up paybacks to most americans who see through her i have to wonder if her witch doctor minister told her to continue the division and unrest she is so qualified to do.

    Good for her and thanks to CNN for continuing to shine the spotlight on her and helping Fox News ratings even more. I know CNN does it to make sure the libertards can spew their venom and hate, but once again, it will turn on them and help Fox get 15 out of 15 of the top cable news shows instead of the 13 out of 15 they have now. I guess that kind of shows how out of touch with America the liberals are doesn't it.

    CNN's obsession with Palin continues... almost every single day.
    Sad and pathetic.

    What's funny is Reid is way down in the polls and Obama is busy bashing his states biggest city... again! Reid WILL lose regardless, but he must be fuming. LOL

    Why don't they come out and just say we are a branch of the Republican party? You know the ones who gave China most favored trade status and then turned around and sold a communist govement a boat load of our debt So the dems could trun around and do the same thing. We need a true to the people 3rd and not the Rubulicans other party.
