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.

Sarah Palin: Bill Clinton was right about Obama, he wasn't ready

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."

    Another one of Gov. Palins attackers have been forced to apologize. The list continues to grow. MSNBC's Martin Bashir is just the latest in a long line. When will they learn personal attacks always backfire. They never attack her on the issues. Its always personal. Want proof? Read the personal attacks that will come in the comment section here.

    These two should totally run for office – any office. Forget platforms. They should just campaign and say the first thing that comes into their minds, unfiltered.

    The conservative movement (or lack thereof) would not recover for years.

    A better portrait couldn't of been painted of what's wrong with this country more than that picture – It's funny them holding up their books with their big smirks laughing all the way to the bank while taking all their "Sheeples" $$$

    Now there is a couple to ponder; no rational or objective logic would ever come between them.

    "voter turnout actually improved (and significant improvement I might add) in Texas compared to the previous off year election even though they passed voter ID laws!! "

    LOL. You can't compare turnout in mid-term years to turnout during a presidential election year. Apples and oranges. Your "gotcha" is fundamentally broken.
    LOL is right, yes when you compare an off year to an on year you can't but the study compare 2013 with 2011 both off year so YES it is apples to apples!!! Nice try sniffy

    CNN was counting on you to throw these conservatives, you know little or nothing about, under the bus, to help thier communist image.

    Wow. I'm almost speechless. So many things come to mind it's hard not to have a brain fry. The main female and male icons of imbecility at it's most refined. A truly precious moment in history.

    WHO IS DOING THIS? Tell me!! I wanna know!! Who keeps pulling the string on the See-n-Say, WasillaBilly Version? (My apologies to the Mattel Toy Company.)

    And is it just me, or do they both look like a couple of cardboard cut outs?

    Palin has been fully vetted like no other, that's for damn sure!
    24,000 emails exposed and she comes out smelling like a ROSE ....
    Palin/Ted Cruz/2016 ~ Palin after two years as gov of Alaska had a 91% approval, a record...
    If she ran, it would be a bonaza for the media, no one has her following...
    She would be afforded millions in free media because she is Sarah!...
    She has been right on with every issue and no flip flop with her...

    Palin best choice for 2016

    It's going to be fun seeing all the nasty comments after a relatively benign Sara Palin and Rush Limbaugh article from CNN.

    Fire for effect !!!

    That much stupid in one place at the same time might cause the planet to tilt off its axis.

    As wealthy as they both are... I would never trade places with either of them. I suspect they are both very miserable people, especially Rush.

    Thanks to Limbaugh and Palin, the rebranding of the Republican Tea Party is going nowhere fast.

    Not Exactly, What is wrong with the country is too many "Know Nothings" have kept the liberal's in power. And we have the 17 Trillion Dollar Federal debt to prove it. And 47 Million on Food Stamps.

    A blowhard and an idiot; what a wonderful combination. They show what is wrong with the right side of political spectrum. Unthinking ideologues that don't understand that much has been done via compromise.

  24. ThinkAgain: The GOP owes our nation $24 billion

    @bassman: No one ever criticizes her on the issues ... BwahHahHahHahHah!

    She accused of then-candidate Obama of "palling around with terrorists" when she's married to a guy who wants to secede from the U.S.

    She's always going on about Obamacare and "death panels". Before the Quitta quit and was still governor of Alaska, she supported covering end-of-life counseling and declared April 16, 2008 "Healthcare Decisions Day" in Alaska.

    She's for expanding the nation's naval fleet, even though our admirals think that is unnecessary.

    The list goes on and on. And NOTHING will ever change the FACT that:

    Palin = Quitter, Liar, Mooch
