Sarah Palin: Twisted Sister?

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution is live-blogging Sarah Palin's appearance on behalf of Karen Handel in Georgia. Some of the updates:
Update 11:34 a.m.: Palin is in the building. Repeat, Palin is in the building. In about 25 minutes Palin and Handel will take the stage and we’re told that the two will walk to the stage to the 80s metal anthem “We’re Not Gonna Take It,” by Twisted Sister. Check out the original video below.

Update 10:51 a.m.: The Georgia Democratic Party has taken note of Palin’s presence and are using it to raise money. This just in from party chairwoman Jane Kidd:

“You may not have heard, but half-term governor, Fox News personality and tea partier Sarah Palin is in Georgia today.

Republicans see the writing on the wall- Georgia is going to elect Roy Barnes for Governor this November, and Republicans are pulling out all their tricks to prevent our victory.

Why is Palin fighting so hard in our state? Because the Democratic Party registered over 200,000 new voters in 2008 …”

Twisted Sister? We're Not Going To Take It Anymore:

At one point, the blog noted that some of the Palin/Handel fans are "older," at least the ones occupying chairs. The venue accommodates about 3000 people. Coffee, water or a soft drink can be had for $3.00.

New York magazine has Did Sarah Palin Roll Her Eyes at Teaching? which has a video, "Sarah Palin's Homer Moment-D'Oh!"

In the paper's latest update, Palin explained the choice of music to the crowd:

The Palins and Handels came on stage shortly after noon to the 1980s metal anthem “We’re Not Gonna Take It” by the band Twisted Sister. With nearly 3,000 people packed into the ballroom, Palin made mention of the song and of Handel’s campaign slogan, “Bring it on.”

“Georgia are you ready to bring it on?” Palin asked the crowd. “Are you ready to elect Karen Handel as your new governor? The intro music? That was Twisted Sister singing we’re not going to take it anymore. And bring it on. I can’t believe that’s your theme. Did you know what you were asking for?”

I live in a city not far from Atlanta, so it would have been easy to attend this event, but I would have needed a very good reason to make the trip. Since there was no reason to make the trip, I decided to stay home and watch something much more interesting on my teevee. LOL
