Palin hits trail for McCain

Sarah Palin spoke out Friday at a rally for Sen. John McCain, urging voters to support the senator in his re-election bid in Arizona.

The rally, in Tuscon, Arizona, was their first joint public appearance since they conceded the 2008 presidential election.

McCain faces a primary challenge from former Rep. J.D. Hayworth and has come under criticism for being too moderate on a variety of issues, including immigration. Several leading Tea Party activists in Arizona have decided not to endorse McCain or Hayworth, criticizing both of their records while serving in Congress.

The enthusiastic crowd greeted Palin with shouts of "Sarah, Sarah," as she, her husband Todd and McCain took the stage.

"Everybody here, supporting John McCain, we are all part of that Tea Party movement," Palin said. "I think he's gonna win this one," she said.

    Sarah is popular with conservatives because she is a Divider.

    She believes anyone who isn't on the same page as her is a treasonous pig and The Enemy. Like Rush Limbaugh, she does nothing to expand the base of Republican voters, she merely keeps the already indoctrinated full on calories of Hate. It's too bad.

    Conservatism in this country has become a ghetto/echo chamber because of these egotistical blowhards.

    Great to see her on the campaign trail again. Her charisma is unmatched by anyone in our political universe. Her powerful and dynamic personality in full display here on this video is one of the reasons why the left wing is so afraid of her. She blows them away.

    Way to go Sarah is diong the right thing, here. The John McCain of 2010 is even more amazing then the John McCain of 2000. For Hayworth to say he is different now if almost funny. What I have seen out of McCain in the last year is nothing short of heroic!
