Palin, Beck Bring Tour to Tulsa

Glenn Beck, his chalkboard at his side, and Sarah Palin spoke in Tulsa during a three-and-a-half hour show as part of the “Taking Our Country Back” tour on Saturday. During the event, they homed in on what’s wrong with America: Washington. “We are going to be remembered as a country so riddled with debt,” said Beck. “People thought magic pixies would come down in the likeness of Tim Geithner and everything would be ok.” Palin, meanwhile, asked: “Oklahoma, do you love your freedom?” According to Palin, the first thing that needs to happen is a boost in the economy. Yet, despite economic woes, nearly 5,000 people were able to fork over tickets to the event—floor seats started at $150.
