Sarah Palin




I am a little late in posting this, but on December 1st the kids and I went to see Sarah Palin campaigning for our local Congressman Saxby Chambliss. Frankly, I could not believe I was there, but my husband urged me to take the kids so that they could take advantage of seeing Sarah Palin speak. We were VERY early and were about the 50th person in line to get in and then it started to snow! IN GEORGIA! So, after about an hour of snow, it finally stopped and just became down right cold! By the time I was good and frozen, they let the line form inside the arena waiting area. Being warm really made the time go by faster!

When they opened the doors so that we could begin seating, it was like a rock concert from my youth!:) All of these old people:) started pushing forward with no consideration of a line at all! Finally, I had to start yelling because I thought that I might become separated from my kids, not to mention that if they, by chance, fell they could be trampled! It was very alarming. When we got into the arena, I insisted that we sit in the stands and not stand on the floor in front of the stage because I was afraid of what these crazy, old, Republicans would do!:) I guess everyone was just very excited to see Sarah Palin, as were we I must admit.



After waiting 3 + hours, the show began with John Linder, Johnny Isackson, and Saxby Chambliss. Then came the main attraction- Sarah Palin! I must admit it was great to see her in person. I hate to say things like this but it seemed like I was watching someone who was destined to make a change in our world. It was pretty cool.



Well, having learned from the earlier stampede, I decided to get out of there as quickly as possible so we left before the speeches were over. It was a little hairy but I am glad that the kids got to see Sarah Palin in the flesh and even more glad that we made it out alive!:)

I'm green with envy!! Didn't want to use "jealousy" cause that's ugly. ;) Really, how great for you, and your kids, to be able to see and hear in person such a remarkable woman. I agree with you, in that I also believe she is going to present great things for our country.
