Palin’s Road Trip

Sarah Palin’s bus tour is off and running.  Yesterday, she launched the tour by joining the Rolling Thunder motorcycle ride in Arlington, Va. The ride, held annually, aims to increase awareness of missing veterans and prisoners of war.

Palin, joined by husband Todd and daughters Bristol and Piper, rode on the back of a motorcycle.

Last night, the Palins toured some of the monuments on the National Mall, including the Jefferson and Lincoln Memorials. “The Lincoln Memorial reminds us that ours is to be a government ‘of the people, by the people and for the people’ and it’s with gratefulness for past generations that we can commit ourselves to living out the promises and values etched on those memorial walls,” Palin wrote on her site.

This morning, the Palins visited the National Archives and viewed the Constitution and then headed to Mount Vernon.

Asked at the National Archives if she could beat Obama, Palin responded that “any Republican candidate is very, very electable.”

She said she was “still kind of contemplating” whether to run in 2012 or not.

While it’s anticipated that the bus tour will also include stops in Gettysburg, Philadelphia, and New Hampshire, the Palin camp has not released any itinerary.

The President’s Do-Over

I agree with Jonah on all counts: On net, President Trump’s do-over of his Helsinki remarks is a good thing; regrettably, it is not sincere; and while I hope the revised version is the one he sticks to, I don’t have confidence that will be the case -- as posited in my column Tuesday on the folly of having the ...

Trump’s Helsinki Discord

Donald Trump is not, and never will be, the Moscow correspondent for The Nation magazine, and he shouldn’t sound like it. The left-wing publication is prone to extend sympathetic understanding to adversaries of the United States and find some reason, any reason, to blame ourselves for their external ... Read More
