Look | Sarah Palin Visits New York City

Wednesday, June 01, 2011

Sarah Palin visited the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island on Wednesday as part of her tour of East Coast historic sites.

The former Alaska governor and veep candidate, who said she's mulling joining the field of Republican candidates running for president, shared pizza with reality star and real estate mogul Donald Trump and his wife, Melania, on Tuesday night in Times Square.

On Wednesday, she said she was eager to see "the beauty of legal immigrants' work ethic and love of freedom" at the two historical sites in New York Harbor. Millions of immigrants passed through Ellis Island between 1892 and 1954.

I am appalled by my typos and lack of editing.

Dear Sarah,
I am endlessly fascinated by you. I cannot turn away from any news that involves. So much so that I have a page for the weather in Wasiila on my iPhone. My advice - when eating pizza in Time Square do not hang with the Donald, he will only cheapen your brand.

Go back to the "real Americans" who buy your load of bull. As gov of the great state of Alaska? EPIC FAIL! Go skin a reindeer and stay out of my city.

Sarah go home! You rail against us - we urban, we diverse, we tolerant New Yorkers - unless you need us to make yourself look good or you want a little playground for your transparent political tour. Get out of my city. Get out of New York.

Of course Palin's grand, multi-state tour is being financed by the Committee to Re-elect Barack Obama.

did they find that rifle in her backpack?

what ever happened to the investigations into her failed governorship of Alaska? She has a lot of guts going to NY, considering her hateful rhetoric towards immigrants and her ignorance on America. They may call the middle of the country the heartland but the US economy is hugely dependent on the tri-state metropolitan area
