In Florida, "we love you, Sarah Palin". Given Palin's star power, she might be able to wait longer than others. President Sarah Palin in 2012. The Tea Party "ROCK n ROLLS". With the breeze in her hair, bugs on her teeth, mirrored sun-glasses on, I can hear Sarah Palin singing the Steppenwolf bikers theme song, "Born to be Wild", while thinking todays Politicians are like diapers, they need to be changed often and for the same reason. Sarah Palin rumbled through Washington on the back of a Harley as she and her family began an East Coast tour Sunday that renewed the former Alaska governor would join the still unsettled Republican presidential contest. Sarah Palin cares about us Veteran's, and those that gave their all, on this Memorial Day weekend ride from the Pentagon to the Vietnam Veterans' memorial. This is "NOT" about "WILD - Alaska TV Show, we all know, this is the start of a presidential campaign, this time, in it, to win it.

Pray for our troops, and, never forget a Veteran.

GOD Bless America.

The publicity hog strikes again. Apparently she thought she wasn't getting enough attention lately, so she is taking whatever it takes to get back in the spotlight (and take attantion from the credible candidate who is running for president). Hopefully she will soon realize that her 15 minutes of fame are long spent, and just go away.

Happy Memorial Day Sarah Palin and Family.

President Sarah Palin in 2012. The Tea Party "ROCK n ROLLS".

The Department of Veterans Affairs cannot bar a Houston pastor from invoking Jesus Christ in a Memorial Day prayer, a federal judge ruled in a case that is yet another illustration of anti-Christian animus in the country. The government cannot gag citizens when it says it is in the interest of national security, and it cannot do it in some bureaucrat's notion of cultural homogeneity. the judge wrote. The right of free expression ranges from the dignity of Abraham Lincolns speeches to Charlie Sheen's rants. The Constitution does not confide to the government the authority to compel emptiness in a prayer, where a prayer belongs, he said. The gray mandarins of the national government are decreeing how citizens honor their veterans. This is not a pick-up-your-trash sign, this is a we-pick-your-words sign. I am honored to be allowed to pray in the name of Jesus at this somber remembrance of our nation's fallen.

Pray for our troops, and, never forget a Veteran.

GOD Bless America.

Does FOX News pay Palin for covering herself at events like this, or is there just a flat fee for discovering that, yes, she planned to attend the event?

Casa Grande, AZ

Hukabee makes $500,000 at FOX. What must Palin make? Just found out, she get a cool million for FOX. But she made 12 million last year.

I don't care, more power to ya sista.

As a Tina Fey fan, I can't wait.

Please, Mrs. Palin, just say "no." The presidency should be reserved for those interested in public service.

SP's never done anything "abruptly".

Ah, Sarah we hardly know yah. You should be working for ford or gm, selling cars. What pizzazz... riding bikes, looking good, hanging out, getting photos, getting publicity, getting noticed again... and then just missing the nomination in order to make more millions. Even your daughter has figured out that there are suckers out here in the public.

Yah gotta love the girl, er, lady? She went from public service to pay me in record time. Some women love diamonds, but Sarah loves money.

I see a new book on the horizon: "Why I still love America." $42.95 at your local barnes and noble. Get'em while their hot!!!! Autographs at the national convention, lower mezzanine, where the balloons are flying and the cameras are flashing.

Obama? He rolls on to become a second term President. He will get what he wants, and Sara will get rich.

What a country!!

Beaverton, OR

I can understand how some guys would love to take her for a ride on their Harley, but have her as THE Commander in Chief? C'mon.

Since Obama can't serve a 3rd term, is it too early to start speculating about 2016? Because 2012 is a joke.

Farmington, UT

In my opinion, the 2008 election should have been the easiest election, ever, for the Republicans. Obama was one of the least experienced candidates, ever. But what happened? Obama had star power, while the Republicans, led by McCain, imploded.

I would have guessed that four years later, the Republicans would have gotten things together. I'm sad to say they really haven't. There's a new Republican party called the "tea party," bickering with moderate Republicans. Candidates are coming out of the woodwork, including same old favorites that we practically laughed out of politics. Sarah Palin may be willing to bring reality TV to a presidential race. Yes, it is still early in the 2012 presidential campaigns, but seeing what's going on with the Republican party tells me that President Obama has a legitimate shot at re-election. Maybe this is a symptom of having instability leading the RNC?

Although not terribly religious, comedy writers across the country are saying a quiet prayer for the nomination of Sarah Palin!

Pendleton, OR

been wondering today---

1) was the punctuation correct or should it have said miss "me"?---

2) how would a romney/bachmann ticket play?---could they work together efficiently?---could they both contribute?---
