To a tax rally Palin goes

Washington (CNN) - Sarah Palin is joining the ranks of potential 2012 candidates attending Tea Party sponsored Tax Day rallies.

The former Alaska governor will attend a rally in Madison, Wisconsin Saturday sponsored by the Tea Party group Americans for Prosperity, a spokesman for her political action committee confirmed to CNN.

Rebecca Mansour, a Palin adviser also verified the appearance via Twitter Thursday: "Yes, @SarahPalinUSA will be at the rally in Madison, Wisconsin, on Saturday."

Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, former Godfather's Pizza CEO Herman Cain, Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann and real estate mogul Donald Trump will also attend rallies in honor of Tax Day.

    @Fred in LA. You are in the same boat Palin is in, under educated if you think she is a celebrity. You can not change Washington when you and folks like you keep voting for the same old crooks (McCain, Boehner, McConnell, Cantor to name a few) who are using you for your votes and then toss you off of the bridge when they don't need you any more. You are a moron. Your republican/tea-partier friends are the ones who are anti feminists and racist. You are just not admitting it in public because that is how cowards do their dirty work, undercover. You are like the pot calling the kettle black. I can't wait until they stop social security, disability and veteran checks. See who will cry the loudest then. Better yet cry on the wimp Boehner shoulders. He hasn't cried since his interview. He is a phony just like you. I bet you that Boehner is hiding something in his closet. Once he is done with the so call working for America it will all come out. Watch how far your jaw drops.

    The Tea Party made a pretty sorry showing the last time they "rallied" (and I use the term loosely) here. They must be getting pretty desperate if they're bringing in "My Union Brothers and Sisters" Palin. Or they've found someone(s) with deep pockets (rhymes with "Joke") to pay the Judas goat's fee.

    I have no doubt the nurses, cops, State Patrol, firefighters and prison guards will give her a nice warm welcome, not to mention all the private sector union folks and the nice but concerned non-union private sector workers who have noticed our Governor is sending our State down the tubes. The teachers and the students will be too busy laughing, or crying.

    A better, reusable headline would be "To a media event Palin goes."

    All CNN would have to do is search and replace on the event name, date and city. Palin utters the same nonsense/whines about the media at each event, so there would be no need to change anything else!

    Palin = Quitter, Liar, Mooch

    Lolo one more thing from this undereducated person. I believe the Democrats controlled the White House, Senate and House and the deficit tripled. Need I say more?

    Sarah Palin, Bachmann, Joe the Plumber, Hannity, Limbaugh, O'Donnell, Death Panels, Coulter, Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, Fuzzy Math, Take Back Our Country, etc. etc. On and on goes the gimmickry. And guess what they all have in common?

    When are you chuckleheads going to realize that this woman is in it for the money? It's laughable. She's probably telling her husband how she's going to ride the hype all the way to the bank....until it just stops giving. You'd better start saving your money instead of giving it to her. Lord knows you will need it to afford your healthcare insurance and pay the light bill if the infamous "Ryan Plan" wins passage. LOL. Republicans. Keep 'em stupid GOP. Keep 'em stupid.

    We call he the "Quitter on Twitter" . Im glad the press stopped calling her a barracuda, cause it has lowered the value of my 1969 Plymouth Barracuda.

    recall the Tea Party seniors yelling out for the goverment to keep its hand OFF their Medicare during the HC fight. I wonder if Sarah Palin would be willing to lead the same chant now?

    There is nothing more to be said about Sarah Palin that has not already been said. I do hope that the good people of Wisconsin give her the welcome that she deserves then she can blast the "lamestream media" again. I think that the majority of Americans have already had enough of her.

    Palin went into hiding during the heated budget debates because those numbers are just way over her head, she's limited unless it's street talking, lies and slander. Michelle Bachmann was right in there with the rest of her Republican/Tea bagger buddies just plugging away and you have to give her credit and then there's Palin who just hid out.

    None of the rich at the rallies pay taxes what are they complaining about. What a bunch of hypocrits, and going to Wisconsin who's bright idea is that. We had to pay $35,000.00 in federal taxes it called paying your fair share.

  20. Don't Be Surprised . . .

    If James O'Keefe is there in costume, playing the part of an agitating union thug.
    Palin has never gone to a liberal local like Madison. Mark Williams of the Tea Party Express has bragged about "infiltrating" the Obama campaign. Look out for "fake" union thugs. The right wing is scared and they will do anything to get power.
