Sarah Palin a crowd-pleaser at appearance with McCain
“Sarah, Sarah, Sarah,” chanted the crowd as the Republican vice presidential candidate stepped on stage in the town of Media.
“I see a lot of hockey moms out there for McCain,” she said as the crowd roared its approval. She went on to introduce her family, calling husband Todd “Alaska’s First Dude,” before pointing out their daughters Willow and Piper.
Palin quickly launched into criticisms of Democratic Sen. Barack Obama, whom she said “likes to point the finger of blame but, tell me, has he ever lifted a finger to help?”
“In order to get others to say ‘Yes’ to change, has he ever told his own party ‘No?'” she asked. “When it comes to reform, he likes to say, ‘I will,’ but has he ever been able to say, ‘We did?'”
The two Republican candidates go their separate ways again on Tuesday, when McCain campaigns in Ohio and Michigan while Palin meets with several foreign leaders in New York.
