Several thousand expected for Palin in Norfolk

Rosalind Helderman

Sarah Palin is coming to Virginia!

And one group is particularly excited: the Democratic Party of Virginia, which has been using her upcoming appearance to fundraise for several days.

Palin will appear in Norfolk with former Sen. George Allen and former Republican senatorial candidate Oliver North at Freedom Fest, billed as a salute to military veterans. Also expected to attend is Republican congressional candidate Scott Rigell, who is challenging U.S. Rep. Glenn Nye (D). Thousands of conservatives are expected to attend at Old Dominion University.

"You can bet she'll be firing off some of those famous 'Palin-isms,' " Democratic Party of Virginia Chairman C. Richard Cranwell wrote to supporters in an e-mail before asking Virginia Dems to "Sound Off to Sarah" by submitting notes expressing their feelings about the visit.

Today, the Democrats began circulating some of the responses they received. "We don't need Sarah in Virginia," one Democrat wrote. The party then asked people to "make a contribution today so we can provide the grassroots infrastructure our campaigns need."

A Republican who won't be in attendance: Gov. Bob McDonnell, who will be out of town on vacation. McDonnell has a long history with Palin but has never appeared at a public event with her.

Frightened, frightened little children, desperately trying to stop the inevitable, which is: Complete annihilation of the Democrats in November.

The dems think that running against Sarah Palin is their only hope of survival. Most people want to know why they have voted us in to massive debt, why there are fewer jobs now than last year, and much more. They might be able to gin up some interest from their base by sending out emails demonizing Sarah Palin, but they aren't going to get many votes by doing that.

Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs

The GOP will soon be known as the Party of Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs with Sarah "Snow White" Palin leading such GOP Dwarfs as Huckabee, Gingrich, Pawlenty, Thune, DeMint, Romney and Ron Paul. When Snow White leads, The Seven Dwarfs follow.

Sarah "I couldn't even complete the job of Governor" Palin can't keep her mouth closed long enough for anyone to ask why she's a quitter and how she thinks she's going to be elected to another office. She has proven she can't complete the tasks she's given.

She's the Pied Piper for all the has beens from the republican party. Oliver North? He's a felon from the Reagen administration. Rush Limbaugh? The bi-polar drug addict. Gingrich? seems to have forgotten he was kicked out of the Senate for CHEATING on his wife. Rove? committed treason by revealing the identity of a clandestine CIA agent.

Our economy is in the dumpster from the economic policies of the Bush/Cheney administration. The best example being the exclusion of the cost of 2 wars from the Federal Budget. Now that's ingenious thinking.

She approved hunting from helicopters in Alaska. That's the lowest form of human life I've ever heard of. She turned Alaska into the most anti-wildlife state of the 50 states, perhaps the worst region in the world.

Palin's greatest indignity was to cost McCain the Presidential election by opening her mouth and revealing her political illiteracy.

If you want to listen to her you have serious boredom issues.

I love Mrs. Palin. After the dust settles, she will be the single biggest reason that the Republicans managed to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory in November.

The best part of that will be that they refuse to believe it, and that she and her Tea Baggers will blame everyone but themselves. Then, they will embark on the quest for 2012, and get blown away.

Hopefully, the Republicans will finally understand that to be viable in other than certain areas of the deep South, or mountain West, they will need to understand the complexities of the world in which we all live, and will adjust themselves by purging the Party of those whackos.

The Party of "Not Just No, but HELL NO" is on the downslide, and only when they hit rock bottom will they start the tough climb back.
