Mom, what does V.I.P mean? It means people who are smart enough to donate to the campaign.


Just one of thousands.


My plan was a total wash. We stood in line just.like.everyone.else. After an hour of inching our way up to Security, they decided to close up shop and just let us all in, sans bag check and metal detectoring.


See the little red dot in the middle of the picture? That is her! That's as close as we got.

The snazzy outfits didn't score us V.I.P seats, but we sure had a good time anyway.

Had I not seen Sarah Palin in Denver last month with Voices Carrie and El Jefe, I would have been pretty disappointed in how tonight panned out. See how close we were at the Denver rally? (above)

Conservatism is alive and well in small town America. "Sarah! Sarah! Sarah!"

  1. You shouldn't have covered up your Palin 08 shirt. That was the ticket to getting up close. I'm just sure it was.

    Although, you make the Den mom outfit look good.

  9. You must have came home late. We hung around Grandma's until 8:30 to hear what happened and you never showed. So, did your boys have a good time?

  10. Bummer...but glad you had fun!
    What you should have done is worn your Sarah Palin lookalike outfit and hired some guys with suits and walkie-talkie earpieces to follow you around. Maybe you could have gotten closer to the podium!

  13. I would love to have heard her, but GJ is a little far to drive on a Monday night. I love that she didn't abort her little boy because I also have a little boy with DS.

    McCain will be in Durango (the closest town to where I live) on Friday night. He'll be at our high school. I'm hoping to see him.

  14. My sister got to see her in Indianapolis... and since we're related I say that I have a small connection to Sarah. Also, Sarah went to University of Idaho. I live in Idaho and I visited Moscow once. That's another connection. Other than that, I don't think Sarah will come here before the election. You're very lucky to have been in her presence TWICE!!!

  15. I was so hoping your idea would work! But it looks like a great time was had by all anyway.

    I mentioned you on my new private blog(I drove past your town last month)... did you get my invite? If not, send me an email to: thornytreelady @ gmail . com (with no spaces, obviously).

  16. Love your blog! Sorry you didn't get closer. I saw her yesterday here in Reno, and the event started at 8:30 am, so it wasn't a mad house. After her speech was over, she signed autographs, and a mosh pit was quickly formed. My friend squished through with our tickets, and she actually got them signed! It was a miracle.

    Sarah ripped Biden really well, which was awesome, and she had Piper with her. I made a little video of Piper that I put up yesterday, but haven't posted about the rest yet. Glad you could see her again. I love your unabashed/takenoprisoners love of conservatism!

  18. Thanks for the video clip. Now I have been as close as I will ever get. Think it was awesome that you went. Sorry you did not get closer. I think you could be her double. You really look a lot like her. What are you dressing up as for Halloween? You should dress up a Her, then go trick or treating.
