The Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck traveling show played to a packed house in Alaska last night. The dynamic duo of the Christian right remembered 9/11 and then hit on some of their favorites: love of country, small government, and 'common sense conservatism.' Palin told the crowd Beck inspired millions and represents why so many citizens never have to apologize for being American, notes the Anchorage Daily News.
"I can think of no better way to commemorate 9/11 than to gather with patriots who will 'never forget,' " she wrote on Facebook earlier this week. Last night she recalled that when told of the terror attacks, she closed Wasilla city hall and went to her church to pray for the country. And with the crowd fired up, Beck took the opportunity to joke about that much-ballyhooed Beck-Palin ticket in 2012. "I'd like to announce that in 2012, we will both be ... voting," he said. But not everybody was laughing: The Daily News notes about 80 protesters, complete with "Freedom isn't just for zealots" signs, picketed the event.
