Sarah Palin comes to Boston
The Hiller Instinct: Sarah Palin comes to Boston
But getting to ask her a question was very hard! She was surrounded by a mob of supporters, reporters, and security.
She stopped to compare the tea party rally with the original Tea Party in Boston in 1773:
"We're just repeating what the message was that they had back then when they said government is going to be of the people, by the people, for the people, and that's what we're going to talk about today," Palin said.
That was my cue to shout some questions:
Hiller: “Governor Palin, how do you feel about being in Scott Brown Country?”
Palin: “Massachusetts shook things up in January, so it's good to be here.”
Hiller: “What do you think about Scott Brown not being here?”
Palin: “I think he's busy doing his job that the people elected him to do.”
Hiller: “Tell me three words for President Obama.”
Palin: “’We're taking it back.’ I'll give you four words. "
After her speech, just before she left, I got two more questions, and one answer:
Hiller: “Governor Palin, who's the next president of the United States?”
Palin: “I couldn't tell ya, I wish I could tell ya, but I don't know.”
Hiller: “Is it you?”
Palin: “I don't...”
And then she was gone from the rally, and on to nearly anywhere where politics and cameras can be found.
Leaving me wondering: why should she run for president? She's making more money and getting just as much attention. It might seem like a demotion.
