What a great weekend. Whether you are a political fan, a football fan or a fan of both like me, this was a weekend to remember. Sarah did a great job speaking at the Tea Party Convention Saturday night. In typical Sarah fashion, she spoke with truth and conviction. God bless you, Sarah, for all you are doing for our country!!!
On Sunday, Sarah amazed us again with her appearance on Chris Wallace's Fox News Sunday. Sarah illustrated just how smart she really is, and I admire her for not being afraid to call out the president and his administration. While there is so much I could write about regarding Sarah's whirlwind weekend, it is what I want to show you that I think you will really enjoy, but I do encourage you to check out the amazing Sarah blogosphere for articles on Sarah's speech and interview with Wallace.
Yesterday, Sarah attended a rally for Texas Governor and fellow straight shooter Rick Perry near Houston where she formally endorsed him to a roar of cheers and applause. The Perry Campaign took many amazing photographs, and they have been nice enough to give me permission to post some on them here so you can get a sense of just how great and exciting yesterday's event was. Like Sarah, Rick is not afraid to do the right thing despite how popular he may be withhttp://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gif in the eyes of the media. I fully support Governor Perry in his re-election fight. I encourage you all to visit Governor Perry's campaign website to learn more about him and his candidacy. While you're there, why not sign up to volunteer or make a donation to his campaign; after all, we need more great conservative leaders like Rick Perry and Sarah Palin.
I encourage you to follow Governor Perry, his campaign staff and the Perry Interns on Twitter.
I hope you enjoy the photos from the event!!!
IMPORTANT SIDE NOTE: I am pleased to announce that I have been asked to be one of the new hosts of the Join Team Sarah Blog Talk Radio Show. This is a weekly show that airs every Thursday night.

Condolences to the Murtha Family
Today at 4:07pm
Todd and I would like to express our condolences to the Murtha family on the passing of Rep. John Murtha. Rep. Murtha served his country honorably as a Marine in Vietnam and later became the first Vietnam veteran elected to the House of
Representatives. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family. Semper Fidelis.
- Sarah Palin
Unless you live under a rock, you know that over the past few days Sarah Palin has rocked the world. Sarah spoke at what is being reported as the largest ever Chamber of Commerce meeting in the country on Friday night, and by Sunday afternoon, was sharing the stage with Rock and Roll icon Ted Nugent in Houston, Texas, where, in front of an enthusiastic, overflow crowd, Governor Rick Perry gave her a proclamation naming her an honorary Texan.
Now being a Texan, I can tell you that is something that we don’t take lightly. Being born a Texan is a special blessing, and we don’t hand out the honorary stuff to just anyone.
Of course, the really big deal this weekend, proclamation notwithstanding, was Sarah’s appearance at the first ever National Tea Party Convention, where she spoke to the nation, it was the real State of the Union speech, if you will.
The speech was incredible. It was stirring and emotional, Sarah pulled no punches. The speech was followed by a lively question and answer session from the event moderator. Sarah also set down with Fox News Sunday’s Chris Wallace for a hard hitting interview, where she hit another home run.
We’ll have a video and analysis coming. (Hey... it’s the weekend!)
Anyhow, the Saturday night speech in Nashville was a game changer. It was very fitting that Sarah gave such a powerful speech on the occasion of the 99th birthday of one of our greatest Presidents, Ronald Reagan.
So powerful was the speech that the moonbats on the left weren’t sure how to attack her. I mean let’s face it, progressives can’t compete in the marketplace of ideas. They know they will lose. It’s why all of their attacks on their opponents have to be so personal. (and false) If forced to argue strictly on the merit of their ideas, progressives would be laughed off the planet, so...they lie, hate, and scheme.
The best (worst?) Of the bunch at spreading lies and hate is the Huffington Post. We’ve long reported the ties that Zsa Zsa over there has to the money people behind the smears on Sarah Palin. We’ve also reported on the various members of Obama’s Alaska Mafia, hate mongers and serial liars like Shannyn Moore and Jeanne Devon, who she provides editorial space to, so they can spread their lies and hate.
Anyhow, these are ridiculous little people devoid of any worth to humanity whatsoever, and totally without one single redeeming quality.
Now again, none of these people could argue with Sarah’s red meat speeches or interviews. I mean how do you argue against liberty, freedom, and a strong national defense?
So they went looking. What did these loons come up with?
Oh the horror, Sarah Palin had a few notes scrawled on her hand! That’s right, this "rube" wrote a few things on her hand. How unsophisticated. How common, how ordinary.
Andrew Marcus over at Big Government has the "evidence" of the scribblings here.
Now the left is all over the place on this. To some it means she’s not "presidential" because she did something that pretty much everyone of us have done at least once in their life. To others it means she’s "dumb" because she needed notes to give a speech. Never mind Obama takes his teleprompter with him everywhere, lest he be left to his own devices, which is not pretty, as Obama is more gaffetastic than his famously gaffe prone Vice President.
I mean this guy has to have a teleprompter in a staff meeting, and while talking to school kids! How sad.
Anyhow, the left has just been having a field day with all of this today. They actually think this is something anyone with a brain cares about. That somehow this hurts Sarah.
I love the smell of desperation on the morning!
The far left moonbats like Huffington and her writers are so out of touch with America it’s simply pathetic. This is why the corrupt, Obamacentric media is going broke. They have no idea who their audience is or what they care about.
Most Americans look at Sarah and see themselves. Sarah is every man/woman. She’s one of us. And ya know, gosh darn it, she does things just like we do ‘em.
For Sarah’s part, she just punked the hell out of Zsa Zsa and her writers over at HuffPo!
If you look closely, the writing on Sarah's hand says "Hi mom!"
This dear readers is why Sarah Palin will be the next President of the United States. Oh, we’ll elect her because of her stellar record of achievements, for her strong record of getting the job done, of course, but it’s her spirit, her absolute refusal to lay down and play dead when the hate mongers on the left go after her that puts her heads and shoulders above anyone and everyone else in politics today.
Just as Ronald Reagan was smiling down on our Sarah on Saturday night, he was having a hardy chuckle with her on Sunday afternoon! Reagan was a master at hammering his opponents with a smile. It’s obvious that Sarah is cut from that same presidential cloth!
Our friends over at HillBuzz agree. Their take on this is dead on:
The reason Sarah Palin will be President in 2012, distilled in one picture
That’s what Sarah Palin wrote on her hand today, technically, before speaking at a campaign rally for Rick Perry in Texas.
"Hi Mom" can also be loosely translated as "F-U, Lefties".
Here’s what Sarah Palin did today, and why it’s not only brilliant, but it’s the chief reason this woman will be our 45th President.
She hit the Left back, in a subtle way that drives them crazy. THAT, friends, is quite an art form. We respect everyone alive who practices this sort of Fu.
Palin knew the Left, particularly the Huffington Post, has been trying to create an issue of several words Palin wrote on her hand before the Tea Party Convention speech yesterday: Energy, Taxes, American Spirit.
We do this too, FYI, whenever we have to do any public speaking, since we don’t usually take notecards with us or have a podium in front of us. We just write down a few key words, on our palm, so that we cover the three or four things we really wanted to talk about…lest we miss one of them. Unlike the current president, we don’t have a TelePrompTer traveling with us everywhere we go. Neither does Palin.
We hope Palin makes the "Hi Mom" thing a regular inside-joke.
The Huffalumps tried to make an issue of her palm-notes…and obsessed over staring at pictures of them yesterday…so Palin sent them a message today, letting them know she’s aware they are scrutinizing her palms…so she might as well send her Mom a message.
Those of you who met Mrs. Heath on Palin’s book tour have told us she’s a VERY nice woman (Mr. Heath too)…so we say "Hi Sarah’s Mom" today too.
Palin is quick with responses to the lunatics on the Left, which is remarkable. She gets in front of a story before it becomes an issue. She hits back hard when needed, but can use more subtle smacks when those are more appropriate.
We think she effectively disarmed this issue, in a humorous, fun way that’s relatable to average Americans.
Her ninja throwing star Facebook dispatches are well-crafted and deadly to her opponents.
Today, she proved her more subtle hits can be just as effective.
This woman has all the skills she needs to become President in two years.
All that’s missing is her ground team…of which we, and hopefully YOU, will surely be a part.
Go, Sarah, Go!
They are so right! Here’s the thing Sarah has that no other political figure in the country, on either side, has: Courage.
Sarah Palin is fearless. She got her "Sarahcuda" nickname while playing championship high school basketball. She was a tough player then, and an ever tougher player now.
This is the kind of leader a great nation deserves. Someone who doesn’t lay over and play dead when they are attacked by guttersnipes and low-lifes. Someone who doesn’t seek the approval of the radical elements of society.
Sarah is a hard nosed, tough minded leader. She also has a wicked sense of humor. I’m sure Ronnie would approve, I know we do!
But it was Palin who brought the crowd to its feet. Her speech was filled with
comparisons between her home state and Texas.
She said she'd asked her daughter Piper if she knew where they were. "Honey, we're in Alaska's little sister state," she joked.
Palin lauded the state's ability to attract businesses and Perry's decisions to turn away federal offers for hundreds of millions in education and unemployment funding. Those programs would have required Texas to meet certain federal criteria that he said would rob Texas of setting its own path.
"When Washington came calling with money for expensive programs that Texas couldn't afford, he told them, 'Thanks, but no thanks. We're doing just fine without you,' " she said.
Palin also made reference to the dust-up Perry caused this summer at a Tea Party rally, when he said he could understand why some Texans might want to secede from the union.
"I think they got that wrong. Texas isn't seceding. They're succeeding," Palin said.
She concluded by saying that the country must get back to believing in its own "exceptionalism."
"There's nothing wrong with America that Americans can't fix," she said. "Let's get our country back."
