So, anyone going to see Palin?

Posted Wednesday, October 29, 2008, at 9:10 AM

I figured in light of Sarah Palin's visit to Cape Thursday morning it would be a good time to see how many of you readers out there will be making the trip up to see her.

I'm personally looking forward to it because it will be the third major candidate I've had the opportunity to see this year following Sen. Obama and former Gov. Huckabee. Being a bit of a politics junkie it's made this election more interesting for me because I've never dealt with anyone so high up the political food chain.

Well, I'm gonna keep this one short just thought I'd check in. Is there anything about this year that makes the election more important to you than usual?

Wish I could go...but I'm so wore out on all this stuff, I don't think I could drag myself to Cape even if I tried. Once-in-a-lifetime isn't always what it's cracked up to be....

I will be there, I love her!

Not worth spending money on gas. Lots of noise, no substance. No, I wont be there.

I'm going! You betcha!

No, I have to work. I recieved a call on Monday for it and would have gotten a free ticket but there's no way I can go. Sure would've liked to though!

Is Hank Jr going to be there singing his McCain-Palin Tradition remake of Family Tradition?

I would like to see any of them in person, but nope, can't go.

I have to take my dog to the vet.

dexterite, how did I know you would say something like that. You are right about the noise, but gas has gone done considerably. And what do you mean about no substance? Does Biden have substance? Clue me in.

I guess she means that Palin probably will not promise a chicken in every pot.

-- Posted by I.B. Le Truth on Wed, Oct 29, 2008, at 11:24 PM

I.B., who's this "she"? Dexterite is a guy.

As for the gas prices, I thought you guys said that the president (i.e. politicians) had no control over the price of gas. It was all governed by supply and demand. If that's the case, what do lower gas prices have to do with this election process??

Wish I could have went Corey...but between work and getting everyone else off to work and school, I could not! What an exciting opportunity for you; to be apart of, and experience history.

Enjoy it, and soak it all in! It only comes once every 4 years! But report it all for those of us who could not go! All the juicy details! lol

Shouldn't use gender terms in here I guess, sorry.

-- Posted by I.B. Le Truth on Thu, Oct 30, 2008, at 9:13 AM

I would love to have went, but work keeps me here.

That's okay, I.B. At least your verbs are grammatically correct.

-- Posted by goat lady on Thu, Oct 30, 2008, at 11:28 AM

So, how was it?

Corey Noles' response:
Thanks for asking! I'm planning to post a blog Friday about the whole experience. For now, though, I'm still working on a couple of stories for Friday morning.

There will be a bunch of pictures and at least two related stories in the Friday edition of the Statesman, so make sure you pick one up.
