Sarah Palin sold out.
No, no not in that way but I am ecstatic that Gov. Sarah Palin (R-AK) spoke at a Right To Life event in Indiana Thursday. The tickets sold out quickly.
This was Palin’s first fundraising/speaking event in the “lower 48” since the election.
Didn’t you hear about it? Afterall Huff Po reported on it. I am sure we all got that twitter message.
Huff Po reported that Palin went to Indiana to speak at the event and the rest of the article was predictably more Huff Po Liberal Sunshine and Acid Kool Aid about how Sarah is in trouble blah, blah, blah…

Palin To Indiana For Right To Life Dinner As Alaskans Scratch Heads
AP: ANNE SUTTON | April 16, 2009 at 08:42 AM
This week, lawmakers in Alaska are slashing Gov. Sarah Palin’s budget ahead of a Sunday adjournment. Instead of staying in Juneau, Palin plans to attend a partisan fundraiser: a Thursday night county right-to-life dinner in Indiana.
Close to 5,000 people are expected to show up for the event. “We are probably going to be 5 or 6 fold the number we would normally have for a banquet this size,” Vanderburgh County Right To Life Director Mary Ellen Van Dyke said. Palin’s husband Todd and son Trig are traveling with her.
It’s not getting any easier for Palin, who is becoming a more polarizing figure at home while she tries to maintain a national profile from one of the most remote states in the union.
She exasperated Alaska Republican legislative leaders…
Like I said, blah, blah, Huffpo Obamabot liberal filtered news blah, blah… The reader comments are also of the usual Sarah sucks meme.
I wouldn’t call it obsession, I would call it transfixed; in much the same way as people slow down for a traffic accident. In much the same way we are mostly amazed that some bad driver are given a license; we are completely baffled that Palin could have graduated from incompetent mayor to one of the worst governors in the US and still have enough Chutzpah to continue her tenure.
Oh HuffPo forget to mention that not only was Palin speaking at the Vanderburgh County Right to Life dinner in Evansville, IN, she will also speak Friday morning at a breakfast for S.M.I.L.E., a nonprofit organization for people with family members who have Down syndrome. Did Huff Po mention that Palin’s spokeswoman, Meg Stapleton, said Palin will be taking a “36-hour vacation” to attend the events in Indiana. Palin’s political action committee, SARAH PAC will pay for the travel.
Here is a clip of Gov. Palin’s speech in Indiana where she discussed her response to the news that Trig would have Downs Syndrome:
This fundraiser was a big snazzy dinner where the 2,180 tickets were soooooooooo exorbitantly priced at $34.90!!!!
The 500 overflow tickets that sold out were a cash muncher too at $16.
Now take a look at the story HuffPo ran in March on President Barack Obama’s upcoming fundraiser:
From The Hill:
Tickets for the first fundraiser featuring President Obama are making hotcake sales look slow by comparison.
A source at the Democratic National Committee tells The Hill that $100 tickets for the March 25 event at the Warner Theater in Washington sold out in just 30 minutes, a pace so fast that the DNC is considering boosting the number of $1,000 tickets available to the public.
Hmmm, so the Democratic National Committee (DNC) self-professed “party of the people” wants to raise the price of Obama tickets now that they are nearly broke and need cash. Somehow when Obama and his Kool Aid crack addicted minions made history by breaking campaign fundraising records in 2008, they forgot to share the wealth with the DNC .
So many words come to mind…
