When is Palin coming?

Palin made a big splash when she endorsed Rick about a year ago... so when is she coming to Texas to appear with Rick?

Bernie Quigley wrote up an interesting blog about the two of them a few weeks back... I just now read it though (link). Excerpt follows...
A threshold was crossed: For the first time major, mainstream advertisers are treating Palin fairly. Late night entered the mainstream where Palin has always been. Marketing-wise, you might say that Sarah Palin has arrived. Obama could be only a backdrop now in 2010 and 2012 while the important debate rises between the two factions of Republicans, as it was in the recent election at NY-23 where Perry and Palin supported the Conservative Party candidate.

Dan Balz has a convincing essay in The Washington Post this week making the claim that the future of the Republican Party rests with the governors. He cites Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee, Perry, Palin, Louisiana’s Bobby Jindal, Mississippi’s Haley Barbour, Minnesota’s Tim Pawlenty and others. But Palin and Perry are speaking to the public while the others are speaking to the faithful. They are being brave when it is time to be brave, which is now.
I think Rick and Sarah Palin will get some big headlines, and Palin is very popular amongst Republicans in Texas, but she does seem to draw really strong reaction from people who don't like her... and there are a lot of Democrats who really don't like her...

Hey now, campaign characters. Be nice. I know a lot of you on both sides, so I don't want any overly foul language, personal attacks on anyone other than the candidates themselves, or other party fouls. I will moderate the heck out of you if you start breaking the bounds of civility.
