Introduced to a video with a narrator that said “she’s right here in Barack Obama’s hometown,” Palin stood before an American flag and took on Illinois and its native son.
“This ‘hopey-changey’ thing isn’t what we bargained for,” the former Vice-Presidential candidate told the supportive crowd, adding that she was “glad to be here on the president’s home turf.”
“I almost feel a little bit sorry for the president,” she said. “They expected us to welcome the change. Come November we’re going to show them just how grateful we are.”
