Rubio to rally with Palin, tea partiers co-opted

Everett Wilkinson, chairman of the Florida Tea Party (not to be confused with the registered political party) has been planning a statewide, Oct. 23 rally at Orlando City Hall for at about one month.

Then Sarah Palin came along. She and the Republican National Committee announced a rally on -- you guessed it -- Oct. 23 -- at the Orlando World Center Marriott, about 15 miles away.

Sigh.

"If all the places that the RNC could have a rally, why did they pick the same place as mine?'' lamented Wilkinson. "We've been telling people they can come to our rally and help get out the vote and listen to patriots, or they can go to the other thing and pay to listen to politicians.'' 

General admission to the Palin rally is $20.10. Start time is 3 p.m. Senate nominee Marco Rubio will be there; no word yet from gubernatorial candidate Rick Scott The tea party rally is at noon, free and gets you Grover Norquist.

Do you all think Rubio will tell Palin how he successfully killed the Equal Rights Amendment as Speaker of the House? I don't think that Alaska is one of the 15 states that has not ratified the ERA. I really would like to know where Palin stands on the ERA. After all, she is out empowering women to get involved. It seems like helping Rubio is a conflict. I'd love to hear where she stands on the ERA. Maybe one of these women in photos on the left will ask Palin about Rubio and the ERA. See more ERA at www.dennywood.net.

Clowns to the left;Jokers to the right

It is time for the responsible center to unite behind Governor Crist.

Give em hell Charlie!

I just wanted point out that I am very excited to have Sarah Palin come to South Florida. I appoligize to any that may have understood the Blog as I don't like her. She has been a strong voice for Conservatives across the country. My tone was a disappointment that Palin is talking at another event later that day and we had wished to be the Tea Party GOTV Rally be the sole rally that day. However, we are happy that Patriots can attend the tea party rally at 12 noon and then attend the Sarah Palin Rally at 3PM.
