Who’s Not Afraid Of Sarah PalIn? Marco Rubio

California Republicans Carly Fiorina and Meg Whitman may be too scared to be seen in a public place with Tea Party rockstar Sarah Palin, but Florida’s Marco Rubio has no such issues.

Via CNN.com:

The Florida Senate candidate announced Monday he will appear with the former Alaska governor and RNC chairman at a “victory rally” in Orlando this Saturday, a week after Whitman, the GOP California gubernatorial candidate, and Fiorina, who is running for Senate in the Democratic-leaning state, cited scheduling conflicts in their decision not to stand alongside Palin and Steele.

Palin proved to be a popular figure in Florida during the 2008 campaign, where her rallies regularly drew far more attendees than those of the man on the top of the GOP presidential ticket, Sen. John McCain. Add to that Barack Obama’s sagging approval rating in the state (recent polls have it at below 40 percent) and Palin seems like a surefire bet to fire up a broad swath of Sunshine State voters.

Rubio is currently sitting at 50 percent of the vote, according to the latest Rasmussen, with his closest rival, current governor and Independent Charlie Crist coming in at just 25 percent.  Democrat Kendall Meeks isn’t even cracking 20 percent at this point, giving Rubio a clear and nearly impenetrable lead in the race.

However, if polling twice as high as your nearest competitor is what it takes to be confident enough to let Palin come campaign for you, it’s no wonder so few other candidates are doing the same.

First I hear about the right wingers down in Texas then it moved to Idaho. Now they are in Alaska. About the only place left for them to go is either the Artic or Anartica.
I would suggest the moon but do not want the people desacrating a reasonably pristine planet.
So go someplace else, PLEASE!

Sarah Palin has not got a clue, she represents the Oil Corporations and hates animals cause there in the way. When actually she is in the way, by the way where is her pitch fork and her horns. She'll need air conditioning where she's going..

Since you can fool some of the people some of the time, I guess the Tea Blatherers think this time around they can fool enough people to get into office. What a scary thought! We need to Vote against them this NOV!!!!!

Someone mistook all those people trembling on the ground as being terrified of Sarah when they were actually so convulsed with laughter . . .
