    Good Luck and Congrats on your new book – May God continue to Bless you and your family!

  • uksarahfan

    Ah brilliant – this is the Governor in her element out in the country meeting the folks. You can see the energy it gives her every time she does it.

  • fb274

    Shucks, Nov. 20 in Edmond, Okla. I need to be there 11th thru 15th of December when g-daughter graduates from Ok. Christian Univ. If she doesn’t have to work that night I will try to get her to stand in for me to get a book signed. Two 1,000+ mile round trips that close together would be a little rough on the old worn out back.

  • john norton

    God Speed Governor… !!!-)

  • cudaforever

    I forget where I saw it but I am pretty sure i saw a December 7th signing in Roanoke, VA Barnes and Noble. This would be the same place she came for the Going Rogue signing.

  • OldPat

    So glad to see the military bases on her schedule. The guys and gals in uniform deserve so much better than we have given them in recent years.

    Perhaps it’s time to make a few changes in the way we do things. Perhaps it’s time WE the PEOPLE laid it on the line for them.


    Surprise, surprise, surprise……not nowhere close to me. *sigh*
    Come on Palin grow a pair…….Chicagoland has concealed carry now.

    • Timothy Jacques

      ahem, it says it’s her first leg of the tour……

    • Victoria Richardson

      This is her first leg of the tour so more than likely she will tour in some more states later maybe close to the Christmas holiday. I am sure she will hit the South and the Midwest, She is very popular in these regions.

      • Victoria Richardson

        She is popular everywhere I should say, but don’t tell the liberals and the Dems, oh wait they already know !!

    • MaMcGriz

      "Come on Palin grow a pair……."

      Considering what she’s done and how much of a threat already exists to her safety, I can only say, in my opinion, this comment is inappropriate and disappointing. Very disappointing. And it’s awfully disrespectful…..especially coming from one of our own.

      • TENCOLE

        I was being snarky. Knowing that Palin probably packs…..I was just saying that it’s now legal in Illinois, THE last state to allow it….and she’d be able to protect herself.
        I’m sorry if you took it wrong or if I didn’t make that clear. I guess I forgot my sarc tag.

        I would NEVER want any harm to come to her, or any of her own and I would never disrespect her….please do not think that of me again.

        BTW…….Palin NEVER comes to illinois. Since 2008 she’s been in Illinois twice…..and only one of those times on the outskirts of Chicago. I would LOVE for her to step out of her comfort zone and go to places that are supposedly "enemy territory"……she would be pleasantly surprised how many supporters she has here.

        PS….Doug Truax is running against Durbin here in Illinois. He’s got an uphill battle and a visit/support from Palin would do wonders…..just saying.

        • MaMcGriz

          Understood. I’ve changed my post. Thanks for your reply.

          I suspect the stops on her book tours are set by the publishers, so she may not have total control over the decisions of where they go.

          Oh how I’d love to go see her and let her sign my book!

          I still have hope, since this is just the first leg of the tour, and even if she doesn’t get near enough for me to go, I’ll be thrilled to get to vicariously enjoy the tour through our fellow c4peeps.

          I doubt there’s anything she does that’s more dangerous than these tours. I pray for her security teams. I hope they include Israelis and some bad-ass American combat vets.

          • TENCOLE

            "I pray for her security teams. I hope they include Israelis and some bad-ass American combat vets."….

            Ditto that my friend.

  • travelingon

    Does anyone know if civilians are allowed base access?

    • Kal_Vernon

      From my experience it takes a veteran or a current member of the military to get civilians through the base checkpoint unless you work there. You could call them to be sure.

      • travelingon


        • Kal_Vernon

          No problem. Fort Benning is where Track went through basic training.

          • travelingon

            cool, I was unaware of that.

  • Timothy Jacques

    She’s coming the Omaha!!!! I’m there dudes!!!!

  • Victoria Richardson

    Some of the places she is stopping is genius, take Wausau Wisconsin, didn’t the school board try to ban Christmas music or something? Gov Palin fighting for Christmas Awesome !!

  • James A. Tyler

    Bostonians probably don’t want her to set foot in their territory, but I really hope she stops by Connecticut or New Hampshire…

    • RedDaveR

      I’m in MA, would be a bit much to expect her here, but would happily settle for a stop in NH, or anywhere in New England,

    • Budvarakbar

      You guys are forgetting the bus tour when she outshone Romney

      • James A. Tyler

        I don’t doubt she doesn’t want to come to Boston, and it would be fantastic to have her come by, but I just can’t see it happening, honestly, at least for a book tour. If it does, then fabulous, but she’s been known to prefer the small towns in exurban areas to the urban cities, even in Midwestern/deep south states, on these types of tours, and so if she comes to MA, I could see her stopping somewhere like Sturbridge or Spencer. More likely she’d just head out for Connecticut or New Hampshire if she came to New England, I imagine. And, I’ll happily make the drive if she does.

  • MaMcGriz

    God speed, Governor Palin.

    You make it look a lot easier than it is, I know.

    We love you very much, and will cherish your book and all it represents.

    • BrianusBerkleianus

      Amen, Ma!!

  • imo123

    Awww:-( Love to go to Grand Rapids but I have other obligations that week. Hope she swings back towards Michigan on the second leg of her tour.

  • BrianusBerkleianus

    Thanks, Michelle!!

    I do not think we can measure the immense good that the Governor wrought with her great "Going Rogue" book tour in the final weeks of 2009!

    Thousands of simple men, women, and children will never forget the gracious and radiant presence of the Lady Warrior of Wasilla.

    I think that the 2009 GR tour helped prepare the ground for the stupendous Tea Party triumphs of 2010.

    I think that this coming book tour will sow and prepare the soil of America for 2014 …

    and for 2016!!!

    • DocBarry1

      BB I would like to suggest a word change in your post – to me , no person is "simple" – please choose another word – if you agree – otherwise excellent post

      • BrianusBerkleianus

        Thanks, Doc!! Maybe "simple" can be understood as opposed to the complex evil ways of the people in DC–i.e., "straightforward," "honest," etc.
        God bless!!

        • DocBarry1

          I knew what you were referring to, i just believe in the extraordinary qualities of all life – but no big deal

    • lyndaaquarius

      I totally agree. This tour has wide reaching significance for America. She’s laying more foundation.

      • BrianusBerkleianus

        Thanks, lynda!!

  • Jo

    PLEASE come to INDIANAPOLIS ! Pretty please!
