    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.

    hahahaha....

    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.

    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.
