AMAZING Guests Scheduled for Tomorrow Night's Radio Show!!! A Post by Conservative Girl with a Voice
Camille Friend, and I have a great group of guests lined up for Thursday Night's show (3/4/2010). Besides having a ton of fun and informing you of what's going on in our country, we will be talking to a variety of guests who define what makes America the great country it is.
First up is Anita MonCrief. Many of you may be familiar with Anita. As a former employee of ACORN and ACORN whistle blower, she witnessed firsthand the fraud that occurred in this organization, and she decided to take a stand and do something about it. She also addressed the CPAC Convention, and she is going to tell us all about it. It should be great interview.
After Anita, we will be talking to friend of the show and Alaska State House Candidate Jason Cline about his experience at CPAC. You may remember that Jason was supposed to talk about his experience on last week's show, but because of technical problems, he did not have a chance too. We will also get an update on what's happening with Jason's campaign.
Finally, Camille and I will be joined by #1 Alaska Talk Radio Host Eddie Burke to interview Tito Munoz. You may remember him as "Tito the Builder" of the 2008 Presidential Campaign. It will be great to hear all about Tito's campaign experience, how it felt to be mentioned in Sarah Palin's Book Going Rogue , and also about what he has been up to since the election.
I hope you all tune into the show tomorrow (Thursday) night. The show begins at 6p.m.PST/9p.m.EST. Listen online at www.blogtalkradio.com/join-team-sarah. If you want to call in with a question, the number to call is 1(347)215-6125. There will also be a chat room available that the fabulous Martha Cano will be moderating.

Complete video transcript of Gov. Palin's appearance on the Jay Leno Show. Retrieved from PalinTV
BURBANK, CA: Governor Palin rocked the Jay Leno show in her March 2, 2010 appearance, which fused policy issues and comedy routine. Gov. Palin began the show by providing a cue card, written in Sharpie ink on her left palm - a reference to her TEA Party Convention speech, in which she wrote several key words on her hand. Later in the segment, Gov. Palin related how she adopted the practice in her youth from her father, Chuck Heath, who was a science teacher and wrote notes everywhere. The Governor said she would continue the use of her "poor man's teleprompter" to annoy liberals.
Leno provided a comedic segue when introducing her. In his reference to the Olympic biathalon, he asked how does one ski, then shoot a rifle, then said "that might be a typical date night for Sarah and Todd." Throughout the segment, Gov. Palin was able to fuse her core messages of energy independence, limited government, low taxes, Second Amendment, Alaska, and the media with humor. In the more serious portion, she spoke about her Fox News Analyst position, how it is a return to her roots, and how she hopes to be a catalyst for a return to hard news reporting without interjecting opinion into the coverage. Gov. Palin spoke about media attacks on her family and the apparent double standard which prohibits these attacks on other public figures' families.
In the final third of the segment, Governor Palin exited the stage then returned and performed several minutes of stand-up comedy on health care, Alaska, Congress, Obama, and herself.
Governor Palin's performance on the Jay Leno show was perfect. Addressing serious policy issues and performing comedy routines are difficult enough when they are mutually exclusive. It takes a special skill to fuse them and produce a show which delineates the issues in a humorous way. Governor Palin has a strong objective ego and is able to laugh at and poke fun at her own self. Jay Leno and Gov. Palin had a good rapport and played off each other. Her wardrobe and demeanor were relaxed, poised and appropriate to the venue. The outcome was a very enjoyable 14:35 that left the viewer wanting more.
Appearances which show Gov. Palin's relaxed, fun side are to be commended. "All work and no play" aside from being boring also provides an incomplete glimpse into Gov. Palin as a person. These shows and discussion about her personal life provide a more complete, well-rounded picture of her, enhancing her likability, while engendering support and appeal in a diverse mass market extending far beyond her normal base. A complete, well-rounded picture is critical, because two and one half years from now, we may have the opportunity to throw a lever next to her name.
