Craig Medred's story, "With special guest Sarah Palin, the Glenn Beck show rolled into Anchorage," comes with an interesting slideshow and begins:
Fresh from the Capitol Mall in Washington, D.C., the Glenn Beck American revival show rolled into Anchorage Saturday night with special guest Sarah Palin.
What little real news there was came quickly. Palin, the half-term former governor of Alaska and unsuccessful though much-loved Republican candidate for vice-president, will keep the country waiting on whether she plans a bid for the presidency in 2012. Not so for Fox News star Beck. "No, I'm not going to run," he said point blank when asked by Palin, on the stage, about his presidential aspirations. ...
So, it was a nothing burger in terms of an announcement. Nobody should have had to ask Beck whether he was going to run -- Hello, Sarah? -- because he very clearly said -- last month! -- that he wouldn't run. Beck went to Alaska for a vacation and to raise some money by selling expensive tickets to his show.
Alaska Dispatch's story is interesting, nonetheless. Did you know that Glenn Beck was once a girl?
Update: Mudflats has a story about Palin's appearance in Anchorage, and Grypen has a story about her appearance in Wasilla.
