Sarah Palin bans press coverage of her one-woman show here. Good for her!

Sarah Palin will be at the Rosemont Theatre next month. We won't.

Sarah Palin is coming to Chicago. But unless reporters want to shell out up to $297 a seat, we will not be in the audience.

Good for Sarah Palin!

If journalists won't voluntarily stop giving Palin's nonsense all that inexplicable coverage she has received since she lost the race for vice president of the United stated, 18 months ago... well, she's going to put an end to it herself.

“An Evening with Sarah Palin” will be at the Rosemont Theatre, in northwest suburban Chicago, on May 12. Her performance is sponsored by Chicago radio station AM 560 WIND. The outlet is one of 99 owned by Salem Communications. The fifth largest radio station operator in the United States, Salem specializes in evangelical Christian and conservative political talk.

Locally, Salem's lineup includes the likes of Glenn Beck, Dennis Miller, Michael Medved and Dennis Prager. (The latter two being conservatives, but not Christians.)

Dan Nelson, marketing / promotions director for Salem in Chicago, confirms to me that the Sarah Palin event “is closed to the press.”

I am so damned proud of these guys and gals, I just may start listening to WIND radio myself. You betcha!

    Are you sure it is SARAH who is closing her visit to the media, or the group who invited her to this venue? See, the media are rude, pushy and out-of-control at Palin events and must be given boundaries so the people who shell out the bucks to see and hear Palin can actually see and hear Palin. Besides, she will get coverage anyway as you have already given her coverage by saying she will not be covered. Ouch.

    Thanx for writing, Lilly. I did cover SARAH at a campaign stop in Greenbay, WI, in '08. And, you are right. The audience at these things tends to be a better show than she is. To be honest, I was very disappointed in not getting press creds for the Rosemont event. I hand planned to attend the show... tell my readers I was there... and than not write a thing about it. SARAH saved me the trouble.

    Lloyd,

    How many people would come to see Hillary, Nancy Pelosi
    or any other politician(except Obama)?
    You think they could fill a restaurant?

    How many people can you get at Rosemont Theatre?
    Just curious.

    Eh, I think we don't need Sarah in Chicago. We have our President who comes here from time to time! :-)

    Hey, Tex... Thanx for being a fan. How many angels can dance on the head of a pin? Who cares? The only "how many?" that really counts is how many voters a candidate gets to come to the polls on election day.

    FYI: If Sara Palin does run in the GOP presidential primary. I not only will vote for her, I will work on her campaign. With Sarah Palin as his opponent, Obama has a 100% chance of getting re-elected.

    Lloyd,

    With your attitude you might as well vote for Obama.

    Or,are you hoping for Mitt Romney,
    Mr liberal-moderate,flip-flop RINO fraud?

    She thinks that she is in touch with the common citizen, if they are white.

    Just wondering if we will EVER see the day when old Sarah takes questions that have not been pre screened?

    Sarah Palin is about as genuine as Oblama and Bush. Nuff said.
