Mike's America felt a little left out of the lovefest much of America enjoyed with the candidacy of Sarah Palin for Vice President in this fall's election. I shouldn't feel too bad since I got to meet Rudy Giuliani, Duncan Hunter, Fred Thompson, Mitt Romney and John McCain during the primary campaign in South Carolina. But when I heard Sarah Palin would be campaigning with Senator Saxby Chambliss (R-GA) in Savannah Georgia for the runoff election which may decide whether Republicans maintain the margin of seats necessary to filibuster and stop the train wreck of Obama/Reid/Pelosi socialism I knew I had to go and share the love.

At an event in the downtown Savannah Convention Center, where they actually said a prayer then the Pledge of Allegiance (everyone knew the words), Sarah came on stage to the wild applause from the thousands on scene similar to that which greeted her across the country just a few short weeks ago.
Governor Palin used her star power to encourage the voters of Georgia to turn out on Tuesday and re-elect Senator Saxby Chambliss who is in a tight runoff with Democrat Jim Martin. But she also drew attention to the need for the GOP to reform itself in the years ahead so we will be stronger and better able to provide the clear conservative alternative America will crave after a few years of Obama/Reid/Pelosi liberalism.
Thank you Sarah! But next time you are down this way make sure to visit the home of southern conservatism, and the first southern presidential primary, by including South Carolina on your travel schedule!
