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."

  3. Hey, GOP, ---- Burn in hell; by Phuq Ewe

    Palin is against health care, the environment, and the majority of Americans. She is for the rich, racist Republican party, and anyone who has a contract out on the President. Why isn't she holed up in an igloo at the North Pole giving her anti-federal government segregationist husband a blow job? Can't he control this half-brained delusional ignoramus? What a screwed up family. Her poor handicapped baby does not even get breast fed becuase Palin's USA excursions against the middle-class.

    Sarah Warbcks is raking the cash. Only to purchase copies of her book with it. Sarah Palin the Embezzeler.

    Referring to her last quote, it should read "We will keep spreading more lies, fear and hate, one convention, one speech, and one election at a time."

    Of course she'll be there. They are paying her big bucks to be there. Additionally, she's a private citizen with nothing to fear from the political fallout that affiliation with these unibrow braintrusts can result in.

    Thanks again John McCain. Really, thanks. NOT.

    When will this twit slink away and leave us alone? If she has a particular amount of money in mind that she has or wants to make before she will stop peddling her particularly vapid brand of ignorance, please let the public know so we can have a telethon to raise the money and send her back to where you came from.

    Congradulations to Sarah Palin, and the tea party members in their successful campaign to keep children with deadly diseases, such as type 1 diabetes and cancer, uninsurable. Next time Sarah Palin sees a child with an insulin pump on her side, or a little girl figthing cancer, she can take pride in helping to keep those children uninsurable. I am disappointed in the Democrats, but at least they tried to help sick children become insurable. The Republicans had 8 years from 2001-2009, and they didn't even try to help uninsurable children, but they are very good at preventing the Democrats from helping uninsurable children.

    This woman reminds me a lot like Jane Fonda when she protested the war, etc. and look where Jane is now. When will the GOP realize that republicans like me backed off from the party due to the filth and lies that spew from Palin? I listen nightly to the lies told by McConnell, Beck, Boehner, McCain and Hannity and can't help but wonder where their conscience is. I only see this GOP party going down in flames!!!! They look pathetic, Palin looks and sounds pathetic. Go ahead and gloat over the Massachusetts win, it wasn't Scott Brown the people elected, it was against the establishment – something you are still not realizing.

    February 3, 2010 10:23 am at 10:23 am |

    Both the tea partiers and Sarah Palin have no idea what they're talking about. Tea partiers can't tell you of one increased tax or rights that they've lost because there aren't any new taxes or lost rights. They just can't stand a black President. Sarah Palin couldn't point out on a map these places she's going to appear. If she wouldn't finish the job for her beloved Alaskans, how can she expect the rest of America to believe that she would serve a full presidential term? She's the most dreadful combination of arrogance and ignorance.

    Is Palin now vying with Glen beck to be the spokes person for the newly emerging Tea Party? Beck has already taken a few swips at Palin to discredit her. Interesting that this particular arm of the Republican party, The Tea Party, backed the newly elected Senator from Mass. who is pro-choice. Why dose the Tea Party even maintain a separate identity when control and funding is clearly aligned with the Republican Party. The only reasonable explanation is that common folk are moving away from the Republican party which has proven to be corrupt at its core.

  15. America Shrugged

    I wonder how much Palin is getting paid for these little junkets? What the people want and voted for is for the Government to pass healthcare reform, end these wars, and get us out of this economic mess the GOP perpetrated on the American people for 8 yrs. The teagaggers want to complain now? Where were they for 8 long years of the Bush presidency, while the majority GOP signed on to 2 wars, 2 tax cuts for the wealthiest, and medicare part D, none of it paid for? They were ok with de-regulating wall street and yet are out in force defending the very people (who are bankrolling much of the parties) they claim to be upset with. They don't know what they are more angry about, not enough GOP disaster or the fact that America elected the Dems to get us out of this mess again. Only thing is that we've reached the tipping point now and to prevent a full blown depression, we have to continue to spend. But wait, Cheney said there was nothing wrong with deficit spending during good economic times and Ronald Reagan (their god) deficit spent and raised taxes 2x during his 8 yrs. So these peeps have no credibility and are laughing stocks as far as I'm concerned.

    So you want some one like this who is promoting the tea party to be in the white house. These people are dangerous. Wonder how much she is getting paid for all these appearances. Will it be another $100,000. These people are all uneducated people where do they get this kind of money to pay her.

    You Go Sarah! It's no ones business what you decide to attend or not attend. No matter what you do the Dumbocrats are going to send out their hate filled, jealous, and bitter remarks. I can't believe they keep those barbs coming, unless they are "very" scared of you and the support you receive from people with values, and half a brain!

    Palin to hit Tea Party events in Nevada, Massachusetts

    Yet another GOP opportunist wants to court the attention of racist misogynists, ignorant buffoons, and whatever other sociopaths attend such events.

    Republicanism should be regarded as a communicable disease. Its a public health hazard.

    It would be wonderful if the Teabaggers in MA decided to re-enact the famous Boston Tea Party - by throwing Palin in Boston Harbor. She's used to the cold waters of Alaska and clearly has a sense of humor (she thought she was qualified to be VP - hilarious!), so why not? Come on, Sarah, be a sport!

    Will someone tell this woman to STOP running for President, already?

    Her 15 minutes of fame were up in November of 2008!!! But then again, it's difficult to well rounded when one comes off as only ONE-DIMENSIONAL!
