Sarah Palin Rides with “ROLLING THUNDER” into DC & the Vietnam Veterans Memorial


Sarah Palin, ROLL, BABY, ROLL.

Sarah Palin, kicked off her Nationwide bus tour today, but not first without riding on a hog with “ROLLING THUNDER”. In the end, there was no controversy as Palin just wanted to dress in black, ride a hog and honor the memory of our fallen military heroes.

Wearing black from head to toe, the Republicans’ 2008 vice presidential nominee stopped at a thousands-strong motorcycle ride from the Pentagon to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. Palin, who is mulling a White House run, was joined by her family.

Who wound want this to be on their bucket list? Riding with “Rolling Thunder” and honoring the memories of our fallen heroes on Memorial Day in Washington, DC. Does it not get any American than that? As stated at ABC News, the Rolling Thunder riders praised Sarah Palin’s participation in today’s rally.It is what the LEFT both does not understand and fears of Sarah Palin, both at the same time. Sarah Palin’s appeal is that she can hunt, fish, ride a hog and look perfectly normal doing so. Oh yeah, she’s a politician too. Sorry, it is not Palin’s fault that the MSM feels the need to hound the event with photographers.

ABC News’ Sheila Marikar [@sheilaym] reports: For the riders of Rolling Thunder, the news that Sarah Palin will participate in their national rally on Sunday came as a surprise. A welcome surprise.

“I think that’s wonderful,” said Gerri Tramel, president of one of Rolling Thunder’s Tennessee chapters. “Anybody that’s involved — Republican, Democrat, independent, whatever — if you’re involved with our veterans, I think that’s wonderful. Not just Sarah Palin – anyone that’s a politician.”

Watch the actual VIDEO from the Daily Caller of today’s Rolling Thunder rally 2011 with Sarah Palin, Todd, Bristol and Piper on Harley’s.

      Reminds me of John Kerry sporting that hunting outfit during the 2004 presidential campaign.

      Sorry, it is not Palin’s fault that the MSM feels the need to hound the event with photographers.
      She could have rode in the event without making it the headline of her “will-she-run parade” When she did that, the photographers became “her fault”, if there is blame to be assigned.

      As it is, I knew very little about the event at all, and now I do…so there was a purpose served.
      SM: Flippy, you have never heard of Rolling Thunder? SeriouslY?

      I knew it was memorial day Motorcycle thing, but nothing more than that. I have never really cared much about motorcycles. not disliked them, but indifferent.

      Wow. Shame on her for stealing the show. This was not for her…This was for us veterans. Once again she thinks more of herself than of the reason for the ride. Shame on her! She would never be offer a ride on my hog.

    8. Big Daddy on May 29th, 2011 11:18 pm

      Sarah Palin is a media hoging, selfish, self centered, unintelligent, piss poor candidate for political office. I am a service disabled Vietnam Veteran, and I am shocked and disturbed that any veteran biker would allow her aboard his bike and thus take away the focus on the respect that we pay for our fallen members on this great day. This goes for anyone else who embraced and endorsed her presence with Rolling Thunder. She can shoot all the Moose she wants, and she may see Russia from her back porch, but she has not and never will see what we have seen, go where we have gone and do what we have done. I think she should apoligize for using such a solemn ocassion for her personl platform. Unacceptable! Unacceptable! Unacceptable! Shame on you Sarah Palin. Your conduct was unbecoming, disrespectful and disgusting.
      SM: One might say many more people found out about “Rolling Thunder” and what the rally is all about. How many people googled “ROLLING THUNDER” and learned a great deal over the weekend.

      Your problem seems to be just more PDS, Palin Derangement Syndrome. Any individual who wants to be a part of Rolling Thunder should be allowed. Sorry that Barack did not take the opportunity as a Senator or President.

      So its unacceptable for Sarah Palin to pay tribute in memory of the fallen? Really? Would you rather be forgotten, like sadly so many vets were when they came back from Vietnam? Take you politics out of it for one second and be thankful that people wanted to be involved and care.

      The Fact Of The Matter, Despite All The Twitter, Sarah’s NOTHING But A LIAR, And A LOSER, Then A Quitter. She Even STEALS The Thunder From FALLEN VETS. Notice NOTHING in the article about the Reason For The RIDE. She doesn’t Care about Vietnam VETs or any other American. It’s ALL about High Heels and HOT Leather. HEY ! Vietnam Vets! LIKE BEING USED?
      SM: Ah, did you not see the reference of DC and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, or have you selective reading comprehension? Just more PDS on your part.

    10. southernsue on May 30th, 2011 6:03 am

      i love sarah and will vote for her should she run!
      she loves our country and her family. she is also one tough cookie to take on the oil companies in alaska, read her first book.

    11. lea on May 30th, 2011 7:49 pm

      Rolling thunder is a great thing I have rode in it many times with my UAW brothers.I have to say this Sarah Palin is a joke the only reason for showing up was for TV..etc.She doesn’t have a clue what Vet go thur from day to day..My dad is a Army @ Navy Vet was in WW2 ,Korea and Nam ( with the 1st CAV )..We must never forget are men & women that put their self in Harms way for us.My heart is with everyone of them…
      SM: Just more PDS.

      And how exactly would you know what was in Sarah Palin’s heart and mind? I actually feel sorry for you that you think you are the only one who has a right to ride with Rolling Thunder. Wow, imagine a Republican wanting to honor the troops and the fallen. You do realize her son is in the military, right? She has always been for the militray.

      She hardly needs Rolling Thunder to get media attention .. HAHAHA … now that is funny.

      BTW, I bet is Palin was President she would never skip a wreath laying ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery like Obama.

      Re #8: Great way to celebrate Memorial Day, Red. Give a disabled veteran a condescending lecture on how he should feel and act. Disrespectful jerk!
      SM: Elmo, you might want to refine your definition of disrespectful. You might also want to get a clue. No one told anyone how to act. It was a rebuttal to another’s disrespectful and condescending comment.

      Sorry if you cant take the heat.

      Oh, I see, you think that this is a one way street. Hardly.

    13. Scared Monkeys on May 30th, 2011 10:11 pm

      Why can’t you folks just accept that she wanted to be a part of the rally? Seriously, she has a child that serves in the military and some how she is not worthy of participating.

      Good grief.

    14. Johan on May 31st, 2011 5:43 am

      Sarah Palin, Obama’s sure ticket to 4 more years lol
      SM: With the economy going the wrong direction, unemployment still at 9%, GDP less than 2% and new home price data coming out this am that is negative … more like Obama on the ticket is a sure GOP win in 2012. Sorry, no one is going to vote for a President who has made it worse in the past 4 years.


    15. SUPER DAVE on May 31st, 2011 6:40 am

      i see all the yellow, back jumping, women attacking democrats are back. grow somew balls boys and attack your president for screwing up our country.

    16. southernsue on May 31st, 2011 7:19 am

      lots of liberals on this blog.

      let’s hear it for your guy, obama the commie.

    17. Elmer on May 31st, 2011 10:59 am

      Re #13: Um… Because she never participated until the kickoff of her national bus tour? How about this quote from a front-and-center ad on the Drudge Report this morning: “I write because I am convinced that Sarah’s priorities and personality are not only ill-suited to head a political party or occupy national office, but would lead to a disaster of well, biblical proportions.” -Frank Bailey. In my opinion, Sarah Palin cost us this last election, and if she is the Republican nominee she will do it again.
      SM: And you know this how when she had planned to do this? It amazes me just how much Palin drives libs insane.

    18. Michelle Smith on May 31st, 2011 1:42 pm

      You liberals are so full of hate you can’t see the truth. Sarah was invited to ride with “Rolling Thunder” she did not give a speech and was not campaiging for President. She was there to memorialize those that gave their lives for this Country.

      Instead of hating on Sarah; why don’t you focus on what your beloved President is doing or not doing. How did he memorialize the military? Oh, that’s right, he played golf. Why don’t your ask your President why we have such high gas prices, where are the jobs, why are we sending billions overseas when we are broke, why are we sending money to other Countries to drill but we don’t drill here, why did he throw Israel under the bus, why does he continually appoligize for the USA, why does he alienate our allies and praise our enemies? Why aren’t you upset about how many vacations he takes and how much golf he plays when you complained about GW?

      Leave Sarah alone and worry about the usurper in the White House hell bent on destroying America.

    19. Elmer on May 31st, 2011 7:57 pm

      Re #17: What possible sense does your comment make??? So I’m a “lib” because I want a Republican candidate who can actually beat Obama??? Is that what you’re saying?
      SM: Nope, explain to me why you think that Palin is unelectable without using typical MSM and soundbites from the LEFT? Hell, the way the economy has been going and continues to head, Obama should be unelectable. With the damage that this man has done to the US, his socialist policies and just devastating the economy with terrible policy, any one who votes for this man is a clown and I question whether they really care for the US. Obama will have had 4 years and he has made matters worse.

    20. Elmer on June 1st, 2011 7:45 am

      Re #19: There you go again with LEFT this and MSM that. When did I EVER say ANYTHING that would lead you to believe I lean left? Answer: NEVER! But you can’t type a sentence without throwing in your little digs and insults and PDS blah blah blah. You know what? I think you know Sarah Palin is unelectable and you’re fine with that. If Obama doesn’t get elected, what in the world are you going to write about for four years? You’re right about one thing: Obama SHOULD be unelectable. But he’s not.

    21. Scott on June 1st, 2011 12:19 pm

      Elmer…lea…big fatty…opps big flabby…whatever…

      Can you people come up with your own thoughts besides the lies and hate that comes from the left and MSM?

      It’s actually funny how SCARED the libtards are of Sarah Palin…you know why they are scared because there are more people that can relate to her and her family then they can relate to elitist, libtard, hollywood tit sucking, progressive idiots like yourselves.

      I’m waiting for the “blame Bush” crap.

      Can any of you idiots point to one thing using your own words that Obama has done that has:

      1. Created ACTUAL PRIVATE SECTOR jobs (not govn’t jobs)
      2. Lowered the Unemployment rate
      3. Fixed the housing market
      4. End the wars (INCLUDING OBAMA’s LIBYA WAR).
      5. Fixed our dependency of foreign oil

      What has he done that resonates with middle America, white independents who got him elected the first time? NOTHING! NADA! ZIPPY!

      The problem is people like you can’t use their own words but have to use hate filled words…she is a mother…do you souless, heartless wrenches of life have mothers?

      Her son SERVES…do any of yours?

      Do you not think that Rolling Thunder wanted her there? Only an idiot would think otherwise. They knew she would bring recognition to the group even better than it is known today. She didn’t steal their “thunder.” You can NOT steal the thunder of thousands of motorcycles rolling through DC…

      It’s amazing the same exact things that you libtard two faced twits bashed Bush about; i.e gas prices; a war; bailouts; etc….Obama is doing the same exact things and it’s okey dokey.

      Do you know he’s killed more innocent civilians using drones or predators than Bush? But that’s nowhere to be found in your lame libtard vocabulary.

      You libtards hold no water; you are a bunch of flip flopping FISH!

    22. Elmer on June 2nd, 2011 7:33 am

      Re #21: Let’s see… I posted my belief that Sarah Palin cost us the election last time, and that she could do the same thing in 2012 if she is the Republican nominee. I have expressed my desire for a Republican candidate who can and will defeat Obama in 2012. And that makes me a libtard flopping fish. Ohhhhhhhhhh Kaaaaaaaaaayyyyyy, there, Scotty! Looks like your reasoning powers are hitting on about 5 out of 8 cylinders as usual…
