    This can't be true... can it?

    Either way, stop picking on Sarah, you misogynist!

    Why did she annoince dates for trips to Iowa and SC?

    I must have missed that or is it another whiney journalist having a hissy cause she ain't following their script.

    BTW I bet she goes on the second leg of her tour when the movie about her comes out, and if she announces it will be on Labor Day. Jobs and the economy will be the issue for the campaign and Reagan announces on Labor Day which conservative primary voters will know.

    Why did she or when did she?

    In either case, you must not have read the cited article because it partially answers your question.

    Though Palin and her staff never announced a timeline for the remaining legs of her trip, aides had drafted preliminary itineraries that would have taken her through the Midwest and Southeast at some point this month. But those travel blueprints are now in limbo, RCP has learned, as Palin and her family have reverted to the friendly confines of summertime Alaska, where the skies are currently alight for over 19 hours a day and the Bristol Bay salmon fishing season is nearing its peak.

    As to Iowa and SC, "well-informed sources" claimed she was planning on going to both places - although she, herself, did not mention a date - but I don't know what that has to do with this article, anyhow or why you brought it up.

    This bus tour was a taken over by a bunch of "gotcha lame stream media" questions and such as. How's that 'Hopey Changey' thing working for you, Mrs. Palin?

    Former VP Candidate
    Former Governor
    Former Reality TV star
    Former Bus Tour(er)?

    When you go to sarahpac.com (which hasn't been updated in a week) this is the 1st thing that you see:

    She may be a quitter but you have to admit she has absolutely no problem asking for cash.

    You got that right! I love the way she asks for a "generous" donation, not just a donation.

    Possibly, but not until she makes all the money she can out of it.....

    And in an indication that Palin's team may be on the verge of more actively associating herself with the film, the pro-Palin website Conservatives4Palin.com reported that SarahPAC Treasurer Tim Crawford recently mailed out a solicitation to Palin supporters that offered an early-release DVD of the film in return for a donation of $100 or more to SarahPAC.

    RealClearPolitics - Palin Bus Tour Takes Extended Pit Stop

    When does it finally dawn on her supporters that she's milking them for all they're worth with no intention of giving anything at all back?

    She's making Donald Trump and Lady GaGa look like bad businessmen.

    To say nothing of the fact that she's living proof that W.C. Fields knew exactly what he was talking about.

    She still refers herself as "Governor Palin" huh? That's odd, considering she never even completed a term. I think it's absurd that we give the title to elected officials forever...for the rest of their lives...how rediculous! When are we going to grow up? When you quit a job or retire, you should always be referred to as Mr., Ms. or Mrs. I know this guy at the VFW who insists on being called "Captain" Maroney. Dude! You retired from the Army in 1978! You haven't captained anything for 33 years!

    Her run for POTUS is all about making money and keeping her in the limelight. Like I have said before - people like Palin are great for the democratic process - other countries people die to have a voice. But she is not nor will she ever be Presidential material. Bachman and Clinton are closer to being the 1st female President than she will ever be. She can do the country a great favor by just doing her thing - keeping issues in the media as best she can.

    yah, icy, I'm not sure I agree with your assessment either.

    I think folks like Ron Paul are great for the democratic process b/c they do bring issues to the fore -- issues neither party wants to talk about sometimes.

    But Palin distracts from real issues, imo

    Any issue that is not the MSM's issue ... that goes both ways through time. IMO you need people out there who go against the flow - it helps keep the democracy and debate alive. Even when they are blowing out their azz. When the time comes that the MSM controls the debate our democracy will suffer.

    Your opinion comes from your informed mind - many Americans are not informed at all and are easy prey for the MSM. Anyone who can get sound bites - however small to show something ... however different ... helps keep everything in balance.

    Where would our democracy be without ultra liberals, religious conservatives, socialists, the college commies ... etc ... all serve a purpose however small. Many of these dissenters are jailed elsewhere. None of us are 100% right or wrong but some have trouble understanding that. You silence the Palins - the Limbaughs - the Hannity's ... etc ... and you and I and everyone else will suffer IMO.

    I use the country and George Bush after 9/11 as an example.

    Too many Americans were on board with Bush - we all know the rest of the story.

    Perhaps if there were lefty versions of palin out there it may have been tougher to go to Afghanistan which would have negated going to Iraq. Code Pink, Cyndi and all the rest of them came on board to late to matter.

    Just to be clear, I'm not suggesting she be silenced in any way.

    I guess to the extent she gets people involved, that is a good thing.

    I just think that when it comes to "issues," she's basically pandering rather than challenging points of view -- thus the difference with somebody like Ron Paul, who is the first pol I thought of when I read your post.

    But, again, if part of what you're saying does speak to getting people involved and activated, then I agree with that aspect of it.

    Golly - she must have heard us talking about her:

    I did? Hmm, glad I have media to let me know my plans. They never cease to amaze MT "@foxheadlines" Palin Says 'One Nation' Tour on Hold for Jury Duty - FoxNews.com

    Twitter

    (Interesting that she links to Fox News when speaking of Media "exaggeration.")

    And from her Facebook page:

    *Sigh* Reports of Tour Demise Are Greatly Exaggeratedby Sarah Palin on Wednesday, June 22, 2011 at 7:14pm

    Imagine our surprise when reading media reports today that the “One Nation Tour” has been cancelled. Why didn’t anyone tell me? Oh, wait, that’s because it hasn’t been cancelled. (Good ol' media... you never cease to amaze!)

    As I said myself at the end of the east coast leg of the tour, the summer is long, and I’m looking forward to hitting the open road again. The coming weeks are tight because civic duty calls (like most everyone else, even former governors get called up for jury duty) and I look forward to doing my part just like every other Alaskan.

    I wouldn’t think it to be such a slow news day that, what with numerous wars and serious economic woes concerning Americans, a bus is driving news stories today. The next leg of the tour continues when the time comes. In the meantime, no one should jump to conclusions – certainly not the media with their long track record of getting things wrong or just making things up.

    - Sarah Palin
    Sarah Palin | Facebook

    EDITED TO ADD: Interestingly enough, the FOX story that Sarah's tweet originally linked to is NOT the one it is currently linked to.

    This is the original story and link from FoxNews.

    Palin Bus Tour Takes Extended Pit Stop

    Less than a month after she appeared poised to shake up the Republican presidential campaign, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has once again receded from the 2012 limelight.

    When Palin launched her "One Nation" bus tour on Memorial Day amid a swirl of media attention and excitement from her fervent fan base, many political observers who had once dismissed her were reminded of the jolt that her candidacy could provide to what has thus far been a relatively sleepy GOP nominating fight.

    As Palin toured historical sites along the East Coast, she was clearly reveling in the tangible excitement she'd ginned up: She even eagerly answered questions -- from the denizens of the "lamestream" media -- ranging from matters of political process to an array of issues facing the nation.

    I wish the press would stop covering dahling Sarah, then she could complain about how biased the news is for not covering her... her narcissism will not allow her to be silent.

    Now is a good time to read Bristol's book.. heard it is one of those you cannot put down. Mo money, Mo Money, Mo Money..

    Sarah has become the consummate grifter under the guise of politics..

    The Loon And Their Media:
    Any and all issues that "SCARE" the Left Wing and their Media and believe me they are scared sh!tless of Sarah Palin, they HATE her and every word that comes out of her mouth.

    Never in my lifetime have I seen the panic and fear in politics that this women has created, it drives the communist bastards over at MSNBC insane to see a whole group of people jump to their feet and applaud her the minute she comes into view, the fools can't let her go, it is the Angry Jealous Left Wing Democrat Media themselves that have made her a worldwide household name and if they keep up their childish hate and fear driven attack on her they just may put her in The White House.

    The Democrat Media has sifted all through her rubbish and garbage bags they made complete fools out of themselves going through her e-mails like little children looking for an easter egg now what are the f-cking Hate Filled Bastards going to do next demand she have a Colonoscopy so Chris Matthews can put a Video on TV of Sarah Palins Ass Hole.

    Sarah Palin Loves The Democrat Media (what would she be without them)

    She knows more about energy than any of the republicans candidates and of course far more than anyone in the administration for starters.

    She does not know all that much about energy and most of what she did is being undone by a subsequent republican governor..

    People want her to be something that she is not..

    If Sarah had supported ANGDA as she promised, they would have a pipeline built, instead of a failing AGIA. Her petty jealousies made her create a completely new pipeline entity when ANGDA was already in place, lost alot of State monies into it, and there is still no have a pipeline.

    A.G.I.A. is her benchmark legislation. It represents her utter lack of business acumen. Her naïve belief that the state could “buy” a $40 billion pipeline with a $500 million enticement demonstrates her lack of understanding of economic forces like supply and demand. Mostpredict there won’t be a pipeline, but there will be a 10 year court battle over the $500 million. Her A.G.I.A. is even worse than her spelling, grammar, and punctuation.
