Sarah Palin meets Rush Limbaugh

(CNN) - Former Republican Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin met with conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh Monday, according to a post on Palin's Facebook page.

"Mega dittos from the EIB network headquarters in Florida!" the former Alaska Gov. wrote of her visit to Limbaugh's radio network. "Got to meet one of my heroes today, Rush Limbaugh. As I've said many times, I was a ditto-head before ditto-head was cool!"

Palin has been dipping her toes back into electoral politics in recent weeks after tentatively flirting with a 2012 bid for the Republican presidential nomination, a bid she ultimately abandoned before it began.

Most recently, the tea party favorite blasted President Barack Obama and the "church of government" at a conservative event in Iowa, the state that kicks off the presidential caucus and primary calendar.

Limbaugh is one of the most powerful voices in the conservative movement, with millions of people per week listening into his radio program.

In the photo, the two pose with their latest books. Palin has been touring the country to promote her Christmas-themed tome "Good Tidings and Great Joy: Protecting the Heart of Christmas," which she discussed in Iowa.

Limbaugh in turn held up his book, "Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims." "Great book for readers of ALL ages," Palin wrote. "Thank you, Rush, for all you do to educate Americans everyday on the things that make this nation so exceptional."

    In my opinion Sarah Palin knew exactly what she was talking about when she mentioned slavery and not being racist...she has been getting away with racist remarks about the President of the United States and I believe she should be investigated for these racial slurs toward our President just because he is black. I have never heard these types of racial slurs toward our other Presidents in the past. I was brought up to respect our Presidents even though you may not agree.

    Does a picture of them together finally mean that they can't be the same person?

    So you wanna defend what Sarah said BASSMAN? How about you tell me how it was A-OK for her to say something so ignorant and insulting.

    People wouldn't buy their books 'if' they didn't agree with them or want to know what they think. Obama (the customer) stole the elections. How about reporting on Watergate 2.0 instead of personal attacks on Palin.

  6. Barrack "it's not my fault" Obama

    When everything your party touches turns to garbage and you realize you are the wrong side of history, by all means point your fingers at a talk show host and a former Governor for this country's problems. LOL.

    I have not heard Palin apologize for personal attacks against, the president, Gov Christie or anyone else she felt divinely outrage and compelled to assault with her little use of words!
