Palin, Beck To Hold 9/11 Rally In Alaska
Just file this one under odd things Sarah Palin does:
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) will welcome Fox News personality Glenn Beck to her home state to mark the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.
Palin and Beck will reunite in Anchorage on Saturday, two weeks after the “Restoring Honor” rally Beck had hosted on the National Mall, at which Palin spoke.
“We can count on Glenn to make the night interesting and inspiring, and I can think of no better way to commemorate 9/11 than to gather with patriots who will ‘never forget,'” Palin wrote on her Facebook page.
There is one key difference, though, between the “Restoring Honor” rally and Beck’s event in Anchorage: this one costs attendees. Tickets for the event range from a low of $73.75 per person (including taxes and fees) to a high of $225, for a spot in the arena and participation in a “meet and greet.” There was no indication as to whom or what the proceeds will go.
Charging for a 9/11 rally does sound odd, although presumably at least a portion of the ticket price is going toward facility rental. Nonetheless, if I was putting out that much money for a political rally I’d want to know where the profits were going.
