Sarah Palin in Iowa: Protect Every Innocent Life

Posted by Shane Vander Hart on September 18, 2010

palin-Iowa-GOP-6 There is still a lot of debate on whether or not Governor Sarah Palin will run, and last night’s speech at the Republican Party of Iowa’s Reagan Dinner didn’t really help clarify. She did go after Obama pretty fast and hard, and gave a lot of red meat to the base. She didn’t say her intentions, but she didn’t close the door to 2012 either. It sounded like a rally speech for 2010, but it had a campaign feel as well…

We can analyze that to no end I’m sure… remember when Presidential campaigns only lasted 18 months?

I do want to point out something that I haven’t seen reported in the press about this speech. Many of the party leadership are calling for a truce on abortion like Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels or believing it won’t make a difference this election year like Alabama Governor Haley Barbour. Some of the up and coming Republicans in the House aren’t particularly concerned about abortion either.

Governor Sarah Palin dissents last night in Des Moines saying one of our “time-tested truths that make our country great” and part of the commonsense conservatism we should dear is the sanctity of life.

And that every innocent life has purpose, has destiny. Every innocent life deserves to be in that circle of protection and respect.

While the rhetoric and focus is pointed toward fiscal matters we must uphold the sanctity of life. It is an American principle that reflective of higher moral law. If this issue and other social issues don’t matter, then somebody forgot to tell the voters or Sarah Palin for that matter.

About Governor Palin’s Speaking Fee for the Iowa GOP Reagan Dinner

Posted by Shane Vander Hart on September 18, 2010

There was none.  I hate being a killjoy for Politico’s Jonathan Martin, I really do.  I also feel dirty about citing an anonymous source since that practice was pretty well slammed tonight, but the person didn’t want to go on the record.  The person I spoke with said that Sarah Palin did not take a speaker’s fee for the Republican Party of Iowa’s Ronald Reagan Dinner tonight in Des Moines.  I confirmed that with Danielle Plogmann, the Iowa GOP’s Communications Director.  Plogmann said, “She did not take a speaker’s fee, we were happy to have her come out to support our party and our candidates.”

They had 135 tables with each table producing $1000 (some were discounted for candidates).  So they took in at least $100K tonight, minus room rental and meals.  Not too shabby.

Now let the 2012 speculation begin… she spoke for the Iowa GOP… for FREE?!?!?!

Live Blogging the Iowa GOP Reagan Dinner with Sarah Palin (Updated with Final Thoughts)

Posted by Shane Vander Hart on September 17, 2010

At Hy-Vee Hall for the Republican Party of Iowa’s Ronald Reagan Dinner featuring former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin.  The event will start at 6:30p (CST), with Governor Palin expected to begin at approximately 7:00pm.

You can follow the *exciting* live blog action right here.

Update: No bombshell announcements, but I wasn’t expecting any.  She did a great job at rallying the base.  She touched on fiscal responsibility, Obamacare, the sanctity of life, and fiscal issues.  She sounds like a potential candidate to me.  Did a great job plugging the local candidates.  I know some hoped that she’d touch on the marriage debate, but I didn’t expect that either.

Over all a great speech!
