Palin 'Gets it' on Iran (Updated)

In an action resembling a bizarre Saturday Night Live sketch, organizers of a non/bipartisan rally opposing Iran's President Ahmadinejad and his hate filled message were forced to retract an invitation to Governor Sarah Palin (R-AK) to speak because Senator Hillary R. Clinton (D-NY),  and would rather allow hatred than share a platform with her.

However Palin didn't let this pettiness distract her from the importance of the issue.  At a rally in Minnesota,  Palin forcefully stated

"John McCain and I are committed to drawing attention to the danger posed by Iran's nuclear program and we will not waver in our commitment," Palin told a crowd of 9,000 supporters in Blaine, MN. "I will continue to call for sustained action to prevent Iranian President Ahmadinejad from getting these weapons that he wants for a second holocaust."

Further proving that the Governor from faraway Alaska has her priorities straight, Palin continued
"Unfortunately, though some Democrat partisans put politics first and now no elected official will be able to appear at that "Stop Iran" rally. Iran's pursuit of these weapons should concern all Americans; this should not be a matter for partisan politics," Palin said.
Compare her mature attitude to Clinton's, who even though the UN is in her jurisdiction, withdrew when she learned Palin was invited.

Who has more understanding of the issues, the so called inexperienced governor of a small state or the so called experienced senator from a large, cosmopolitan state?


Ed Lasky points us to Palin's speech she was going to give at the rally that was published in the  
New York Sun.

Ed adds:

"The estimable New York Sun published the speech Governor Sarah Palin would have given at the Iran rally in front of the United Nations had political machinations by Democrats, The Obama campaign, and left-wing groups Jewish groups (such as the J Street Pac with ties to George Soros and Barack Obama) not led the rally's organizers to disinvite her."

I am honored to be with you and with leaders from across this great country — leaders from different faiths and political parties united in a single voice of outrage.

Tomorrow, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will come to New York — to the heart of what he calls the Great Satan — and speak freely in this, a country whose demise he has called for.

Ahmadinejad may choose his words carefully, but underneath all of the rhetoric is an agenda that threatens all who seek a safer and freer world. We gather here today to highlight the Iranian dictator's intentions and to call for action to thwart him.

He must be stopped.
A pity she never got to deliver it.
