No Arrests, No Violations of Airspace Reported

Military authorities reported no violations of airspace restrictions over Washington. (The restrictions ended at 6 p.m.) A spokesman for the Secret Service's joint information center also reported no arrests as of that hour.

"We are certainly pleased with the successful implementation of the security plan designed by 58 military, law enforcement and public safety agencies and carried out by thousands of officers on the street," U.S. Secret Service Director Mark Sullivan said in a statement, praising the region's two governors, mayor and outgoing Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff.

"All of us in law enforcement want to thank most the cooperative, patient and orderly citizens who attended," added Sullivan, whose agency led the security effort.

Federal medical workers treated 957 patients at first-aid tents on the Mall, 70 of whom were transported to area hospitals. Injuries related to falls, chest pain, dehydration and hypothermia were the most typical complaints.

No further health updates were expected.

Sarah Palin is the best future leader for this nation, not Barack Obama. Our to be beautiful 45TH President as of January 20, 2013 Sarah Palin would be better at leading this nation from January 13, 2013 forward than Barack Obama would . The greatest reason Sarah Palin would be better at leading this nation from January 13, 2013 on would be ideology. Our soon to be Vice President Sarah Palin is conservative in that she is pro life, marriage, guns, low taxes, low government spending, small government, unintrosive government, traditional and Judeo Christian values, Bible reading and prayer in our public schools, and military spending. She is also pro free and private enterprise. Barack Obama is a liberal who is anti everything that I have described that Sarah Palin is pro about or for. Please vote for Sarah Palin over Barack Obama on November 6 2012 and give Sarah Palin the opportunity that she deserves and that being our 45th President from January 13, 2013 to January 20, 2021. From January 20 2013 to January 20 2021 or 45th President Sarah Palin will be the greatest President that we have ever had since President Ronald Reagan, and co-equally with President Ronald Reagan , our 45th President Sarah Palin will be the greatest we have ever had.

Thank You

John Warren

John Warren,

We just got rid of a person with all that you listed. This country wont be fooled again. You religious nuts forget the main theme of the bible. Treat your fellow man with compassion. With all the ills this country has all you can come up with is Pro-life crap. If you are so concerned with life then you should be trying to get our troops home and out of harms way. Or is it babies life's you are only concerned with?

Sarah Palin is a complete wacko who believes in witches, letting women pay for their own rape kits, and shooting animals from helicopters for funzies. She took years to finish just her undergrad degree, thinks she has foreign leadership experience by nature of her state's geographical position, and can't name a news publication she reads on a regular basis. Please never vote for her.
thank you,
the United States of America

John, in the meantime, perhaps Governor Palin will purchase her own clothes and not raid every Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus from coast-to-coast. Perhaps Governor Palin will refrain from employing incendiary rhetoric and feeding "the GOP base" red meat that devolves to murderous threats. Perhaps Governor Palin will learn some basic geography, like Africa is a continent and not a country. Perhaps she'll learn not to play "the babe card" with the winking at debates. In the meantime, do your share to help America from the morass it is in that was caused by No. 43, and get some therapy for the delusions you write.

Inspiring post John. 2013 is a long way away but there is something you and Sarah Palin can do in the meantime: Dees Nutz!

John Warren:

WE progressives love Sarah Palin too! She will deliver the death blow to the Republican party and split it in two.

Smart Conservatives (fiscal) and Stupid Ones (religious)!

I think you should lay off the whiskey.
