Palin to hit the trail for McCain


McCain and Palin will hit the campaign trail again Friday (Getty Images).

Tucson, Arizona (CNN) - Sarah Palin on Friday will again be urging voters to come out in support of Sen. John McCain.

This time, though, Palin is hoping to help McCain keep his current job as he faces a primary challenge from former Rep. J.D. Hayworth.

McCain and Palin will appear together at a Friday afternoon rally in Tucson, Arizona, and a Saturday event in the Phoenix suburb of Mesa. She will also headline a fundraiser for him.

    Can't wait for this, hopefully I can catch the rally. John and Sarah make a great team, maybe John should even think about running again, or be Sarah's VP.

    Just look at how much she helped him in the big election of 2008.

    Just go away you stupid idiot. The intelligent, non-trash people of this country are sick of your stupidity.

    While we're at it, I hope McCain loses his election.

    Oh yeah. Are we going to be subject to more hate rallies? And if so, I'm not sure how much more we can take.

    To the good people of Arizona who support John McCain are you aware he recently said he will be doing nothing for the rest of the year? Just thought you should know you've elected a man who just said he will be doing nothing for you, and you're paying him to boot.

    I do not understand the hype with Sarah. By defintiion and history she could be considered a domestic terroist with that hit map she displayed this week. Isn't that what Bill Ayers did back in the day? To reward her for her courage or is it gall, she is rewarded a reality show on the discovery channel and of course I will never watch any Discovery Channels again as they seem to promote domestic terroism. She also get 1 million per episode. Am I jealous? Heck yes, if I did what she did I would probably be watched by the FBI. Just like Charles Manson if any of the elected officials on her "hit list" are hurt she should be held responsible for it. But I know she will be excused.

    These two WERE NOT qualified for President or Vice President. Is this the best the Republican party has?

    Please give someone else a chance ... someone with character, a brain and an original thought.

    There are numerous reasons to admire Sarah Palin, her courage, her inner strength, her honesty, integrity, her poise, her charm, her knowledge about energy, her leadership ability.

    In the liberal worldview assertions are the truth, everything else is hateful opposition to the agenda. All those who oppose the agenda are evil. There are no facts other than what proves the assertion, all else is misinterpreted or irrelevant data. The agenda determines the assertion, the assertion is the truth and only the relevant facts support the assertion. Anyone who attempts to subvert the truth of the assertion is evil and their minds are full of hate. Thus forms the perfect circle of liberal thought, the agenda, the truth and the relevant facts. If you are a lawyer reading this, you know why the American system of law has nothing to do with justice, the perfect circle is drawn by the line of argument.

    Ah yes the intellectually challenged Palin bashers continue their rants of hate because the democrats lack a smart, sexy, charismatic women candidate for higher office. It all boils down to pure jealousy that the Republican party will claim first women elected president, and shatter the liberal feminist movement forever.

    maybe – if Hayworth defeats McCain, Sarah will figure out that she's hurting more than helping the Republican cause.

    Like that which falls out of the back end of a horse, Sarah Palin is hitting the trail.

    I guarantee, if J.D. Hayworth were running against anybody but her benefactor McSame, she would be campaigning for him. He's her kind of crazy.

    Now I see why politicans ask actors and entertainers to campaign for them– you don't need credibility to win an elections, just popularity.

    What is she going to say–Vote for John, because based on my vast knowledge of his knowledge of the issues, that I think he is the best because.........

    American voters, we really are guillible.

    Keep up the good work, Gov.Palin!

    Sarah is all class. she loves all americans!
    The notion that she is some sort of obsessive partisan is a media propagated myth.

    March 26, 2010 11:45 am at 11:45 am |

    Was there ever such an amazing lady...with such grace and kindness. Then add to that all the attacks of the media that keep coming.

    I love Sarah palin’s no-nonsense approach to the issues. She’s not one of these good ole boy types that does nothing but worry about how many pet projects he or she might get.

    sarah palin is a very smart women. She has great Management skill, and gets people moving.

    the two things about Sarah Palin that I don't think have been adequately appreciated are, number one, if you look at the numbers, she really wasn't that different than Barack Obama in terms of experience and time in office, and [things] like that. The real big difference between the two was she hadn't campaigned non-stop for two years, and had she campaigned non-stop on the national stage for two years she'd have been just as polished as Barack Obama. She's a phenomenal politician and there's no better retail politician on the planet than Sarah Palin with a microphone in front of a crowd. So I think the big experience gap was the one that is about running on a national ticket—he had a lot more experience there and it showed up.
