Palin vs. Corruption

How about that Palin?  Though you won’t see it on CNN’s website, she drew a crowd of 60,000 to a small retirement community north of Orlando this weekend.  That’s a six with four zeros behind it.  Didn’t Obama draw 85,000 when he accepted the nomination in front of a pseudo-Greek temple?  Read the article here.
