Palin rides into Wisconsin, sword unsheathed and goes to head to head with the Wisconsin Teacher's Union, the GOP establishment and Barack Obama.
Sarah Palin rides to the sound of the guns. It was a chilly, wet and blustery afternoon in Madison, Wisconsin — one more appropriate for a late-season Packers game than a springtime political rally. The stirring NFL Films theme, “The Classic Battle,” would’ve been a more apt musical choice than Van Halen’s “Right Now” to accompany Palin as she entered the stage outside the state capital building to address thousands of Tea Party members, along with a good number of extremely hostile, expletive-hurling government union rowdies.Read more of Pethokoukis's column here.
Sarah Palin goes where the battle is. Dan Riehl adds to the imagery that best describes our Alaskan warrior:
Whether it's talking about death panels, or blood libel, to now showing up in Madison - that's not former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. As I said to a friend and colleague tonight, wherever the current battle is, that's very often where you can find Palin. One of the first requirements for leadership is to show up out front. No one will ever accuse Palin of not doing that. Doing so also has an interesting side benefit for any would be leader. When you lead, people tend to follow and support you, even if not at first.Ride fearlessly into the dark night and we will follow you into morning in America, Sarah.
