Rubio to appear with Palin, Steele

(CNN) - California Republicans Meg Whitman and Carly Fiorina took a pass when it came to appearing with Sarah Palin and Michael Steele during a get-out-the-vote rally last week.

Not so with Marco Rubio.

The Florida Senate candidate announced Monday he will appear with the former Alaska governor and RNC chairman at a "victory rally" in Orlando this Saturday, a week after Whitman, the GOP California gubernatorial candidate, and Fiorina, who is running for Senate in the Democratic-leaning state, cited scheduling conflicts in their decision not to stand alongside Palin and Steele.

Palin proved to be a popular figure in Florida during the 2008 campaign, where her rallies regularly drew far more attendees than those of the man on the top of the GOP presidential ticket, Sen. John McCain. Add to that Barack Obama's sagging approval rating in the state (recent polls have it at below 40 percent) and Palin seems like a surefire bet to fire up a broad swath of Sunshine State voters.

    love it when a Palin story brings out the deranged liberal idiots....

    They hate everything about her, and yet at the same time they can’t stop talking about her. Like a succubus, she haunts their fever dreams, visits them in their sleep, and sucks the life force out of them. No matter what she does, what she says, or where she goes, Sarah is an object of endless fascination to the “progressives,” who hate her with a mad passion, cower in fear of her awesome endorsement powers and well… just can take their eyes off her.....LOL

    He can't have Castro's job, Obozo already took it and Palin is much more popular that the Democrat liberal party and their mainstream media affiliates would have you believe. As far as Palin and Steele appearing together and transparency is it somewhat similar to Obozo and the hairplugged VP appearing together and declaring the Summer of Prosperity. I find it amazing that 87% of Democrat liberals think that Palin is the one who made the remark about seeing Alaska from her house. That is the kind of ignorance that causes an inept, incompetent like Oblama to be elected . Products of the NEA dominated education system who graduated in to unions. The dumbing down of America.
