Gov. Palin may attend Yankees game with Giuliani

Politico reports on Gov. Palin's trip to New Work, and it appears there is at least a possibility that a couple of more stops could be added to her itenerary:
She’s expected to join former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani at a Yankee game. And though she riled Washington allies earlier this year by turning down an invitation to headline this week’s joint fundraiser of the House and Senate Republican campaign committees in Washington, she may now stop by the event, a source said, though [spokeswoman Meghan] Stapleton declined to comment on her schedule.
 Politico says the governor is taking a "low key" approach this weekend. She’s traveling (commercial flight) with a small group which includes husband Todd, daughter Willow, Gov. Palin's sister and nephew, spokeswoman Meghan Stapleton and two volunteer advance men. There will be no mass rallies, no major addresses and no attempt to play to the media this weekend.

Asked by Politico to comment on the nomination of Sonia Sotomayor to the Supreme Court, the governor declined, except to say that she doesn't consider gender to be a litmus test:
"I would judge her on her credentials and on her record before I would comment on her gender."
Then there was this encounter in Seneca Falls:
Norma Grant, 71, emerged from a beauty parlor with a simple message: "Run, please run."

"Thank you - you are encouraging," Palin replied.

  1. "There will be no mass rallies ..."

    That is, unless you don't count the 20,000 to 30,000 people who are expected for the Auburn parade and statehouse "brief remarks."

    Auburn officials say they usually get 4,000 to 5,000 for Memorial Day, but they're expecting 5x that many this weekend. Wonder why?

    It'll be great to see the gov in front of a huge crowd again! I hope 30,000 do show up. :)

  2. Man, I've missed her being in the Lower 48. We're so hungry to hear this woman utter one word.

    Stay for a while, Sarah..please.
