Crowd Shouts, "SARAH, SARAH".....Did I Mention I Got To Meet Her Too!

Today I attended a rally for John McCain and Sarah Palin in Washington, PA.  If this crowd and the size of it are any indication of the energy she has brought to this campaign, then it will be a win in November for them.

I was standing in front of the stage on a local minor league field.  It was a sold out crowd.  Local campaign managers said that they had run out of tickets after Palin was announced yesterday.  People didn't care if they had a ticket or not.....they just showed up.  The local officials estimated that the crowd was well over 10,000.

As Sarah Palin took to the stage, the crowd began to shout "Sarah, Sarah". They chanted her name even through Tom Ridge introducing them.  At the end of the rally, I was lucky enough to get to shake hands and meet someone who I have been talking about for the last few months, yes, Sarah Palin herself. I thought I would share some pictures of the event:

 

Meeting Sarah Palin

Her husband, Todd, and her little girl were with her also.  Thanks for sharing in my moment.  I will be back to blogging tomorrow.

Smart Girl,

I'm supremely jealous. I hope you got to hug her and tell her for the rest of us that we are standing guard over liberty until she and John win the general election on Nov. 4th.

Thanks for sharing the great pics. I'm very glad you got to see her.

Thanks so much for this post. Palin has reinvigorated this recent ex -Democrats hope for the country.

That was so awesome. I'm hoping for the same experience next week. She will be here in Adam Brickley's hometown of Colorado Springs and I'm going to get tickets. Sure wish Adam could be here to meet her. Once again, I'm happy for you and save those pictures...you saw history today.

Palin makes me smile...I feel like real, normal Americans might actually have a leader that understand us...is one of us!

I do not belong to PUMA PAC. I am not a Democrat and haven't been for a long time. Take issue with them to them.

Just found your blog. Love it!!
I am so jealous that you got to meet her!!
I have told my husband that if they ever come here I will go and see McCain/Palin. Of course, why would they EVER come TO Troy Alabama. I think that I saw McCain driving through Troy. You have got to see my Blog...I have a picture of a McCain bus driving on HWY 231 between Montgomery and Troy...so maybe I at least saw McCain! :)
