Yes, Sooner fans, none other that Saint Sarah of Alaska, Sarah Palin, former half-term governor, will be in Tulsa soon as a speaker for an Oklahoma conservative "think" tank (using "think" in the loosest possible sense).
With Palin as the big draw, you know these folks are less interested in working policy solutions or and governance than in superficial grandstanding and rhetorical silliness.
Then there's this bit of news from Florida, a sign that the Palin bandwagon (such as it was) is slowly grinding to a halt:
"An Evening of Hope with Sarah Palin," an event featuring the former Alaska Governor, was supposed to be a minor blockbuster in Jacksonville, Florida, next week, but not everything has gone as planned.
Slow ticket sales have forced event organizers to move the function from the 2,936-seat Moran Theatre to the significantly smaller 609-seat Terry Theatre.
