Gov. Palin on Hannity retrieved from PalinTV.
Gov. Palin today endorsed Christine O’Donnell and spoke about the economy, the proposed (currently canceled) Koran-burning, the congressional races, and more on Sean Hannity's radio program.
Time and time again, people jump the gun in their determination to characterize Governor Palin as someone unworthy of America's trust. And time and time again, they are proven wrong.
Today's complaints centered around the teaming of Glenn Beck and the Governor on 9/11 in Alaska, which was announced here. Without knowing the facts, people have run off at the mouth, accusing them of profitting from this event. Jonathan Capehart is one such person. He writes:
"Restoring America" apparently wasn't enough for Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck. They now appear to be cashing in on the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.
If building a Muslim community center dedicated to human understanding and tolerance two blocks from Ground Zero "stabs hearts," then how should taking money from people at an event "to commemorate 9/11" be described? Disrespectful. Distatesful. Shameful. Greedy. Narcissistic. Did I leave any adjectives out?
No, you just left the facts out. So let's set the record straight on Governor Palin--again.
Via CNN (emphasis added):
A Beck spokesperson says Sarah Palin is not receiving an appearance fee, and Beck is donating his to charity.
"Glenn had always intended to donate the speaking fee from the event on Saturday, September 11th in Alaska to Special Operations Warrior Foundation. Governor Palin is not and was never going to receive a fee for introducing Glenn at this event," a spokesperson for Glenn Beck told CNN.
Gov. Palin Urges Pastor to "Stand Down" on Koran Burning, and Today He Does. Now Extremists Need to "Stand Down"
Pastor Terry Jones has abandoned his plans to burn Korans. Reuters reports:
A Christian pastor said on Thursday he was canceling a plan to burn the Koran, which had drawn international condemnation and a warning from President Barack Obama that it could provoke al Qaeda suicide bombings.
Terry Jones, who heads the tiny Dove World Outreach Center church in the Florida university town of Gainesville, told journalists outside his church in this Florida town that he was calling off his plan.
He said at the same time that an agreement had been reached with Muslim leaders to move the location of an Islamic cultural center and mosque planned close to the site of the September 11 attacks in New York.
But sources close to New York Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf said there was no agreement to move the site of the proposed Muslim cultural center.
The planned location has been opposed by many who have said it is insensitive to families of the 2001 victims of the attacks by militant Islamist group al Qaeda.
Jones said he had been promised by Muslim leaders in New York that the location would be changed.
Earlier world leaders had joined the president in denouncing Jones' plan to burn copies of the Islamic holy book on Saturday, the ninth anniversary of the September 11 attacks that killed almost 3,000 people.

The plan to burn the Korans was the wrong tactic, misrepresented Christianity, and was an "unnecessary provocation," as expressed by Governor Palin yesterday when she urged here that he "stand down" on this plan. President Obama later addressed the issue.
The Governor had tweeted the following:
Book burning=bad;Cleric running 4 Afghan Parliament calling 4 murder of US children n response 2 scorched Korans=worse. Where's media focus?
After Pastor Jones decided to "stand down" today, she tweeted:
Book burner "stands down" -good! Now, followers of book who want to kill innocents bc some people do things you don't agree with: Stand Down
Governor Palin today posted on Facebook:
The wave of positive change can really sweep across our land with the election of Constitutional Conservatives who promise to use common sense and rein in the federal government spending! Please support Christine O’Donnell in Delaware. She will support efforts for America’s energy security, patient-centered health care reform, cutting government waste, and letting the private sector thrive and prosper! We can’t afford “more of the same” in Washington. Christine will help usher in the real change we need to get America on the right track. Please visit her website at www.christine2010.com and follow her on Facebook and Twitter.
