As many as half a million riders from across the country are expected to ride 
into Washington, D.C. this Memorial Day weekend for Rolling Thunder 2011; 
raising awareness about prisoners of war and missing in action.

For the riders of Rolling Thunder, the news that Sarah Palin will participate in their national rally on Sunday came as a surprise. A welcome surprise.

“I think that’s wonderful,” said Gerri Tramel, president of one of Rolling Thunder’s Tennessee chapters. “Anybody that’s involved — Republican, Democrat, independent, whatever — if you’re involved with our veterans, I think that’s wonderful. Not just Sarah Palin — anyone that’s a politician.”

The quintessential Biker Babe.

Rolling Thunder announced Thursday that Palin accepted an invitation to participate in its May 29 rally. She’ll kick off her One Nation Tour the same day, a bus trip along the northeast coast that aims “to educate and energize Americans about our nation’s founding principles.”

Asked how Palin came to be involved with the rally, Rolling Thunder spokeswoman Nancy Regg said, “I honestly don’t know.”

“I’m not the person that invited her,” she said. “We send letters to people all the time and invite them. We invited her to ride, she has accepted and she and her husband have both agreed to ride for us.”

“If she wants to support the troops, we’re all for it,” said Greg Benson, president of Rhode Island’s Rolling Thunder chapter.


Sarah Palin is expected to announce her entry into the 2012 race for the Presidency.

This is the Big Question of course. To date, no other American politician in history has suffered the kind of treatment Sarah Palin has received at the hands of the press - not even Richard Nixon, who was positively hated by the press. The Left's continued, concerted smear campaign - and her prevailing popularity despite extraordinary personal attacks against her & her family - speaks volumes of how scared the Left is of Sarah Palin. And they are scared for a reason.

Sarah Palin's message is pure conservatism: traditional family values, patriotism, applying sound economic principles to the current economic situation and restoring America's image in the world. In short, the exact opposite of everything Barack Hussein Obama and his team stands for.

America is a very traditional, conservative nation. We are not Europe and we are certainly not what is represented at the United Nations. Barack Obama got in by playing to emotions of the crowd; emotionalism overcame logic, as it will so often do. But a close inspection of the sympathies and beliefs of America reveals that no more than 20% are true liberal socialists. America does not want what Obama has brought to the table; the overwhelming Republican turnover of state & federal legislatures in the 2010 election are evidence of this, and this ball has not stopped rolling.

It took Jimmy Carter to give us Reagan - another conservative who was villified, castigated and lampooned by the Left and the establishment Washington Republicans alike. Now Obama will give us Palin. Mark my words.
