As Glenn Beck’s sidekick for Saturday’s highly-hyped event “Restoring Honor Rally” expected to draw lots of white people to the nation’s capital on the 47th anniversary of one of the most significant events in black history, Sarah Palin says for that one weekend, she’s going apolitical.
That’s right. Sarah Palin plans on speaking to the crowd as an everyday citizen, not as someone who is potentially running for office of President of the United States. How she is going to pull off this amazing bait and switch is anyone’s guess, but suffice it to say, if anyone can do it, Sarah can. She has the money to hire some of the best speech writers in the business. She’s just hoping the weather cooperates and it’s not too humid in D.C. this weekend so the notes on the palms of her hands don’t run.
Sarah twittered yesterday “No p-ticks this wkend. Just Am prid(e).”
Asked if she was a part of Beck’s decision to hold this rally on this particular day, Sarah responded that she wasn’t even aware of the date of King’s “I Have a Dream” speech. In fact, she claims she always thought he gave that speech in Memphis and then died. “So, I don’t understand,” said Sarah, “what all the fuss is about. It’s not like we’re taking our rally to Memphis or anything.”
