Sarah Palin Tour Makes Stop In Boston

BOSTON (CBS/AP) – In the midst of her “One Nation Tour” up the East Coast, former Alaska governor Sarah Palin made an unexpected stop in Boston on Thursday.

Palin visited the Old North Church, the Paul Revere House, talked to residents in the North End and stopped by the Bunker Hill Monument before heading to New Hampshire.

She also told reporters she was not trying to step on Mitt Romney’s political toes on the same day the former Republican Massachusetts governor officially announced his White House bid in New Hampshire.

Palin said if she thought Romney would be offended by the timing and proximity of her visits, she would have canceled them.

She said her trip was not intended to be a prelude to a 2012 presidential run.

On her website, Palin expressed her thoughts as her group drove through the severe weather in western Massachusetts on her way to Boston Wednesday night.

“Drove through the rough weather last night in Massachusetts, hoping folks are safe this morning as residents survey the aftermath. Our prayers are with the victims of yesterday’s twisters and all those who are faced with what may seem insurmountable rebuilding challenges. The damage we saw was shocking.”

    This publicity seeking fraud should be totally ignored by the media she so despises and yet they follow her and her tag along family as they seek to get their faces on the news. She sought the governership of Alaska and then simply quit when it suited her. One must always be very careful of those who drape themselves in the flag & professes that God is on their side. I wonder whose money she is spending for her gas guzzling motorcade across the U.S.?
    Sarah Palin means never having to say your sorry. Nothing more than McCarthyism in a skirt.

    I saw the clip on the news last night. I didn’t know Pual Revere warned the British we were here. Or that he rode around rining bells as Sarah tells it. I wonder if she is doing a parody of Tina Faye when she speeks? She really has no clue, yet she talks like she thinks she is a history teacher.
