GO SARAH GO! BACK TO ALASKA! And all you people are talking about a casino ruining a battlefield. Now you want Sarah Palin to come stand on it. Not sure which is worse!

Guess I was wrong thinking that Rolling Thunder was a tribute to the volunteers and DRAFTEES who served and sacrificed in VietNam - not a platform for any politician to use for PR.

Streets ready to be closed off in Gettysburg sometime today.
Bags on Meters on Baltimore and Middle Streets.
Boards ready to block off alleys.

Either there's a Memorial Day Parade planned... or maybe Sarah?

You would THINK that if there is a Parade, at least the local business owners would be aware.
Especially someone who read the Papers and the Forums frequently ;)

Are we just to assume that there is a Parade downtown today?
Or is it - Palin Thunder!?

Thats where the stupid broad belongs! On a morocycle with a bunch of dirt bags that cant read either! Thought Obama was dumb? Vote for her once! She couldnt find her own way to Gettysburg without guidance and she certainly cant run this country!

Sarah Palin is NOT a public servant, she is a celebrity of sorts. In part, she represents why this once great country has lost its principles. Just a sad state of affairs if you ask me. Ron Paul is the ONLY candidate I would consider as a person of principle and integrity.

She is a quitter and to quote what I heard on the morning shows yesterday, this is the presidency, not "American Idol.". She can take her reality show cliches with her. Let the adults handle public office. Personally I hope she runs. I could use the comedy.

Not a liberal, but if you want me to say something in your real life just tell me where to meet you.
You do not have to be a liberal to dislike Palin. And you don't have to say much, all she has to do is open her mouth and speak, enough said

Who is 'They'?

The folks who participate in Rolling Thunder do so to honor and bring attention to the volunteers and DRAFTEES who fought in Vietnam. Same goes for the people who gather each Spring to clean the Vietnam Memorial.

Politicans are opportunists. In years past, the news about Rolling Thunder was about the people who honor and bring attention to the volunteers and DRAFTEES who fought in Vietnam. This year, the news about Rolling Thunder centers on Sarah Palin. She used the event for self-serving PR, not to honor the vets.

Now do you understand?
Yeah ok

Palin is a joke and a bad one at that! Please people educate yourselves on this corupt and vindictive person (and I use the label person loosely)...lots of information available online thru the Alaska newspapers! Go read how loved (NOT) she is by the residents where she served...until she quit halfway thru her term!

I never dreamed that there is anything that could possibly make me vote for Obama, but if she gets the Republican nod, I will be voting for Obama.

Palin is all about Palin. Nothing else. And those who worship the ground she stands on will never ever understand.
