Memorial Day Weekend is the annual Rolling Thunder weekend. Thousands of veterans on motorcycles come roaring in to the Washington, DC to let America know that they have not forgotten those who didn’t come home–first from Vietnam and now from other more recent wars. Crowds line the streets to cheer these warriors on.
Sarah Palin has ann0unced that she will be joining Rolling Thunder.
Tell me its not true. The Rolling Thunder website makes no mention of a Palin appearance.
This year, the annual bike tour – a Memorial Day weekend staple – will welcome Sarah Palin, who will use the event to kick off a Northeast bus tour, the New York Times reports.
It’s unclear whether or not Palin - the former governor of Alaska and vice-presidential candidate – will speak at the event.
Keep an eye out for her bus; it’s hard to miss. A blue monstrosity, it features the Constitution and the words “One Nation” on the side. A geographic interpretation of the United States in on the back of the bus (pretty much to scale, give or take Hawaii’s rather cozy relationshipwith California), with Palin information mixed in. On the bright side, it’s a step up from her last bus, which was really just a giant Sarah Palin billboard with wheels.
How dare she! In the first place, what does she have to do with Rolling Thunder? She obviously isn’t a Vietnam Vet. Was she invited to join them or did she intrude? For the rest of her trip, Palin won’t share where she is going or when she will be there. Why the secrecy?
Saints preserve us. Is this how she will ride into town?
All of this fanfare must be for only one reason–Presidential Run.
Is it ego or blind ambition or money that is motivating this woman?
Now where is that big blue monstrosity? It gets better. One Nation bus?
