Governor Palin’s Surprise Appearance at Wasilla’s 9/11 Remembrance Rally

Although his tone is a little snide, as is typical of The Alaska Dispatch, Joshua Saul did report Governor Palin’s appearance at the Wasilla 9/11 Remembrance Rally in some detail and got some video footage and a nice set of  photos, which can be found in his article:

In Wasilla on Saturday, some 300 conservatives gathered to remember the 9/11 attacks. GOP Senate candidate Joe Miller was getting the attention. But then Sarah Palin showed up.

The crowd met at the Menard Sports Center, a hockey and soccer facility championed by Palin when she was mayor of Wasilla. It was organized by the Wasilla-based Conservative Patriots Group to honor those who lost their lives on 9/11.

[…]

But Miller and certainly Roach were overshadowed when, much to the delight and surprise of many, Palin showed, got on the stage, and asked the now-familiar, “Do you love your freedom?” question. The response indicated that yes, they did. And that wasn’t the only thing they loved.

She then asked all military veterans to stand and led a round of huge applause before saying, “It’s really, really good to be home, and tonight I think I’ll see some of you at the Glenn Beck event.”

The rally was a prelude to Saturday evening’s Glenn Beck event in Anchorage. Palin is scheduled to make an appearance alongside Beck tonight.

The former governor’s short speech focused on freedom and values. She said Alaska is “the most perfect state in the nation,” that “there is no place I would rather be,” and “It’s our pioneer spirit that America needs more of.”

[…]

After her speech, Palin stepped off the stage and began a long round of handshakes and autograph signing, where she shook hands with everyone from Mead Treadwell to Sam Little, and signed everything from copies of her book to the back of a little girl’s shirt to a small rock that a middle-aged woman handed her with a smile.

The crowd was happy and excited to be so close to their former governor, pressing close to shake her hand and get a quick picture. When a reporter asked Palin to identify the biggest threat to the U.S., she answered “Our debt, which is a natural security issue,” before turning back to her admiring fans. Palin’s daughter, Piper, quickly became bored with the whole scene and asked her mother when they could go.

As Palin walked outside the sports center into the bright Wasilla sun and stepped up into a black Escalade, men standing in the parking lot yelled out “Praying for you!” and “Love you, Sarah!”
