Best News Of The Day.Gov.Palin heading To Iowa;UPDATED With Flyer Image

Onwards to 2106! Let's hope this is the first of many such visits.

Here's Josh painter's take from US4Palin

CBN News Chief Political Correspondent got a coveted citation from Matt Drudge Monday with this report that Sarah Palin will be speaking in Iowa next month:

Remember that song by Bonnie Raitt called, “Let’s Give Them something To talk About?” Well, try this one on for size. Sarah Palin is heading to Iowa next month. Iowa has great people and loads of corn but it is also full of presidential politics. Hmmm…
Palin will be the featured speaker at the Iowa Faith & Freedom Coalition Banquet.
The mainstream media keeps trying to make Sarah Palin irrelevant and within the NYC-Washington Corridor she is exactly that. But the highbrow mainstream media might want to put down their lattes and New York Times and embrace the concept that Palin is still relevant. Her words and endorsements will matter in the 2014 Midterms. And beyond? Who knows.
Gov. Palin will not be the keynote speaker. Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) has that distinction, and Eagle Forum President Phyllis Schlafly will be the guest of honor. Brody is just a tad misleading in his piece by mentioning that the first woman to be placed on a GOP presidential ticket as VP nominee by a Republican National Convention “will be the featured speaker” at the Iowa event. The IA FFC news release he quotes states that she will be “a featured speaker.” Still, the governor’s mere presence at a political event in Iowa should provide sufficient spark to ignite all sorts of speculation by the same pundits who have proclaimed her “irrelevant.” And for grassroots conservatives, that’s the secret ingedient which makes the political stew so tasty.

Update: Here’s the flyer for the banquet

Sarah Palin’s coming to Iowa

Conservative pundit Sarah Palin will speak at the Iowa Faith & Freedom Coalition’s fall fundraiser, organizers told The Des Moines Register this morning.
She’ll be one of several speakers, but Republican U.S. Sen. Mike Lee of Utah still has top billing as the keynote speaker.
Palin – the darling of many conservatives, especially in the tea party, after her 2008 vice presidential run and subsequent media stardom – is confirmed to appear at the event on Saturday, Nov. 9 at the Paul Knapp Learning Center on the Iowa State Fairgrounds in Des Moines, Faith & Freedom Coalition President Steve Scheffler told the Register.
Any time a politician takes the stage in Iowa, home of the kick-off vote in the president-picking process, it leads to questions about presidential aspirations. Palin, who seems to enjoy firing up the buzz that she’ll someday seek the White House or some other political office, has a new book coming out this fall called “A Happy Holiday IS a Merry Christmas,” which reportedly dives into issues of the over-commercialization of the religious holiday.
Palin was in Iowa in August 2012 for the summer party at the home of Bruce Rastetter, a GOP powerbroker and agribusiness leader. She hasn’t made a formal public appearance in Iowa since a rally in Indianola in September 2011, when speculation was still running high over whether she’d jump into the presidential fray that year.
Yesterday, Palin joined Lee and fellow tea partier U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas for a rally at the World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C. Protesters blasted Democratic President Barack Obama for erecting barricades on the first day of the federal government shutdown. Conservatives have accused Obama of trying to drive home a point about the negative effects of the shutdown, which many Americans blame on tea party conservatives. The Parks Service has allowed open access to tourists even though all national parks are still officially closed.
“This is the image of the day in D.C. This is what valor looks like,” Palin tweeted Sunday. “This wounded vet carried a ‘barrycade.’”
She also had lunch with Lee and Cruz, who led opposition to the Affordable Care Act, including efforts to shut down most government programs unless the law was defunded. Obama and Democrats who control the U.S. Senate have rejected that idea, leading to an impasse now in its 14th day.
Palin, who is known for witty speeches that lampoon the establishment and center on deeply conservative themes, draws large crowds. She addressed the national Faith & Freedom convention in June and the Conservative Political Action Conference in March, both in Washington.
At the Iowa Faith & Freedom event next month, political activist Phyllis Schlafly will be honored for her service to conservative causes, Scheffler said.
Check-in for the event starts at 4:30 p.m.; dinner at 5 p.m., and the program at 6 p.m. Tickets are $55 per person or $500 for a table of 10. For more details call (515)  225-1515 or email
