UPDATE: A Recent Encounter with Sarah Palin AND Radio Show TONIGHT: A Post by Conservative Girl with a Voice

UPDATE: Make sure to catch Camille Friend and my radio show TONIGHT (Thursday) at 6p.m.PST/9p.m.EST. Listen online at blogtalkradio.com/join-team-sarah. If you want to call in with a question, the number to call is (347) 215-6125. There will also be a chat room in which you can get involved.

Make sure to tune because at the opening of the show, Camille and I will be making a HUGE announcement that we are so excited to finally be sharing with you. We have a great lineup of guests scheduled. Camille and I will be talking with Brad, who attended the Glenn Beck/ Sarah Palin event in Tulsa, Oklahoma. We will also chat with Martha Cano, the previous host of Join Team Sarah Radio. While we are chatting with Martha, Mark Ang, who developed the PAC Grand New Party, will join us. Alaska State House Candidate Jason Cline will also be joining us to talk health care.

It is no secret that a large amount of liberals cannot stand Sarah Palin. While I can understand the disdain they have for her in terms of what she believes politically (I have the same disdain for President Obama for the policies he is trying to push through- policies that would change the America I know and love forever), I cannot understand the vile, personal cheap shots. When the attacks on Sarah and her family turn personal, it angers me to all end. The majority of the individuals who claim to hate Sarah have never even met her. If they met the Sarah whom I was so privileged to meet this past December, they would see an amazing woman who is not only kind and generous, but down-to-earth as well. As a conservative Republican, I could tell liberal democrats this all day long, and they would continue to call me a liar and tell me I was out of my mind. Well, if they don't want to listen to me, perhaps they would listen to Ilana Angel, a self-described Democrat who met Sarah the first week of March while Sarah was in Los Angeles. Like me, Ilana is a California blogger who runs the blog Keeping the Faith for the Jewish Journal. While my blog has a political tone, Ilana blogs about pop culture and her journey as a single woman, in her 40s, to find love, which illustrates how great and wide ranging the blogosphere can be. I recently spoke to Ilana on the phone, and I can tell you firsthand that she is an amazing woman with an amazing life story, and her account of meeting Sarah is one everyone NEEDS to read and hear.

I am pleased to announce that Ilana will be our final guest TONIGHT (Thursday) on Camille Friend and my radio show. Camille and I are so excited for the opportunity to have a great chat with a fellow strong woman. Ilana, Camille and I will be talking about a variety of non-political stuff. I cannot wait to hear about her encounter with Sarah and her blog as well.

Here is a segment from Ilana's post about her chance encounter with Sarah:

Yesterday a friend and I had a meeting together in the valley. I arrived before he did, so I decided to sit outside and wait since it was such a beautiful day. As I sat in the sun, I saw a women chatting with a gentleman a few feet away. I thought I recognized her, but was not sure.

I saw my friend approaching, so I got up and walked towards him. As I passed the woman, I got a good look and realized I was looking at Sarah Palin. I hugged my friend and we turned to walk into the building. I then stopped, turned around, and walked back towards her.

Let me begin by saying that Sarah Palin is beautiful. Not just pretty, but beautiful. She has great hair, fabulous teeth, magnificent skin, and a killer body. She is tiny, feminine, and stunning. She is very approachable, so I decided to introduce myself, and say hello.

She was standing there with Mark Burnett, who I think is fabulous. We all know I am a reality television junky, and think he is King, but I was so blown away by how much fun she was to talk to, that I barely said hello to a man who I think totally rocks. Note to self for next time, never give up an opportunity to talk to Mark Burnett.

To clarify, I don’t agree with her politics. We are polar opposite in terms of our political, and religious views. That said, her politics and beliefs have nothing to do with my blog. This is America and she can believe what she wants, as can everyone else, myself included. I approached her because I like her as a woman. We are both ballsy ladies, and mothers.

I introduced myself and told her...

It's Romper Room in Obama-land

by Patrick S. Adams - Patricks World USA

He promised us hope and change. He promised to change the tone of Washington. He promised to end partisan bickering and conduct business out in the open. Instead, we have doom and gloom, a bitter tone in Washington, unprecedented partisan bickering and back room deals. These are the kind of things you'd see in an unsupervised daycare center, not a U.S. presidential administration.

Yes, from the top on down, it's romper room, folks. The children are running the daycare and the patients are running the asylum. There is no reaching across the aisle because you can't extend a hand through closed doors behind which you're chanting "na na na na na, we won and we're going to pass health care reform anyway." There is no hope and change when the grown ups have to show up in Washington DC to protest the recklessness and the children laugh at them and mock them instead.

From naked chiefs of staff poking Congressmen in the shower to press secretaries writing on their hands to giving heads of state cheap and meaningless gifts to calling cops stupid, this administration has acted like nothing but children. Those who told us the country was going to be taken over by an angry old man and the "Wasilla Hillbillies" must have been forming their mental manifestation in wait during the 2008 presidential campaign. All that they feared; all that they warned us of; all they accused us of being. They have become.

They feared the Republican vice presidential candidate would be a bumbling fool. Theirs is. They feared that GOP Congressional leadership would pander to special interests. Their's does. They feared that conservatives would favor the rich over the poor. They have (in the form of bailouts and dependency programs). They are everything that they campaigned against in 2008.

Children can be mean when they tease and taunt. Yesterday, Sarah Palin put out a well worded statement about the situation in Israel. The reaction in the comments section reminded me once again that the children were still regressing. She didn't write that. She's a dummy. How dare Politico had even print something she wrote. It reminded me that while Obama might be losing independents, he still has his base - the same "children" who can't stop giggling about seeing Russia from a house in Alaska.

Sarah Palin thought Alan Grayson should be punished for telling the other kids that the grown ups wanted them to die and die quickly. She didn't want to use bad language, though, because there were children in the room. Grayson later threw a hissy fit - screaming and kicking and throwing things on his website - because "momma" scolded him. Did you ever have to bite your lip to stop yourself from laughing at a child's reaction when you were disciplining them?

Now lets take a look at Washington where no one wants to play "health care." Did you ever notice how children change the rules to a game when they are losing? Where's the grown up when you need one to tell little Nancy to play fair or don't play at all? Or, how about this one: "I'll let you ride on my plane if you play with me?" Yup, wittle Dennis got a pwane ride yesterday.

It's time for the adults to come back into the room and with one loud gong, signal to the children that recess is over and it's time to get back to work. It's time that the children stop tearing up the shining city on a hill, littering it with their cap n tax, health care reform and financial reform "toys." It's time for the adults to clean up the mess and send the children to bed.
