Somebody should warn California that Sarah Palin is headed their way.

Courtesy of The Press-Enterprise:  

Sarah Palin is coming to the Inland Empire. 

Palin, the 2008 Republican vice-presidential candidate and former governor of Alaska, will be at the Riverside Convention Center at 6 p.m. Wednesday, May 24, with her husband, Todd, for an American Diabetes Association (ADA) event honoring four men with “Father of the Year” awards. 

“Serving as ADA ambassadors, these honorees bring awareness to ADA as well as the importance of fatherhood,” read an association news release. 

The Palins will present the award to Walker Evans, an off-road racing legend and longtime Riverside resident. In a phone interview, Evans said he’s known the Palins for about four and a half years and that Sarah Palin has stayed at his home. 

A nine-time Baja 100 champion and Off-Road Motorsports Hall of Fame inductee, Evans said he’s stayed at the Palins’ home in Wasilla, Alaska and helped Todd Palin in the Iron Dog snowmobile race. 

“(They’re) just a great family and (Todd’s) a great guy to hang out with,” said Evans, who has donated to the campaigns of President Donald Trump and Rep. Ken Calvert, R-Corona. “They’re just a joy to be with.”

"Joy to be with?" I'm guessing Walker Evans is a heavy drinker perhaps? 

Gee, flying all the way to California for such a small event. And yet Alaska was too far away for Palin to travel all the way to Ohio for the GOP convention?

Interesting.

Hey maybe Palin can make it a twofer and find a local car wash or pet grooming salon that is having a grand opening and needs some old washed up has been to help cut the ribbon?

You know, just to make the trip worthwhile.

    If these honorees have type one diabetes they have a preexisting condition, perhaps from childhood. No insurance for you! If they have type two, it's their own fault for eating crap for years. No insurance for you either. Or, if you can get it it is very expensive.
    This is what your dear leader has in store for you.
    But most tellingly, once she spoke at the RNC Convention. Now Sarah goes to these redneck towns (that most learned people avoid like the plague), to speak to high school graduates and (give them each a dollar) and to give awards to diabetics. No disrespect to the diabetics..but much disrespect meant for the organization choosing the Palins to honor their awardees!!
    Winning!

    How, in God's name, is Sarah Palin even remotely considered an "ambassador" for the Amer. Diabetes Assn? And Todd's getting an award for being a great father? Really. Hasn't anyone told Sarah and Todd that Trump's budget director days ago said that no one with Diabetes 2 should be allowed to have health insurances? This world has gone all topsy-turvy!

    Who's paying for the junket to California? Not that I contribute to the organization, but the next time I get a begging letter from the ADA I'm going to send them a response about what I think of their honorees. I don't even mind wasting a stamp. I think they need lots of money-less responses from people who receive their begging letters.

    The ADA is one of the many illness-themed organizations that did nothing to help get the ACA passed. As far as I know, the only one that encouraged passage of the ACA was the national Down Syndrome organization. I don't think people with Down Syndrome will do well under the GOP/Trump take-medical-care-away-from-people legislation now pending in the Senate.

      The article doesn't say that the Palins are receiving any awards. My interpretation is that they will be among the presenters. The four honorees include Walker Evans, but nothing indicates that either Mr. or Mrs. Sarah Palin will be receiving anything (thank goodness)!!

      ADA, like most 'charities' isn't really looking for a cure. There's no money in a cure but there's a pot of gold in soliciting funds to 'find a cure'. Cancer society is the worst. What the hell would these imbeciles do for a living if a disease was stamped out??? Those working in research to actually find the solutions get only a few bucks from these fund raising orgs.

      This is palin's new grift, find charities that need reasonably well known spokespersons to fleece their flocks.

      I'd never even heard of this organization but I also don't know anyone with diabetes. I guess any celebrity that bring attention to their disease is a good thing?

      I don't know, but it seems like Palins are grasping at anything these days, even for diseases that really aren't that prevalent any longer thanks to modern medicine.

      You go Palins, and perhaps next you can address the foundation for sickle cell anemia, or tuberculosis, rickets, the plague, or other things that hardly anyone in the civilized first-world succumb to.

  20. Sweet Thing is diabetic, takes daily insulin injections. We have donated to the ADA in the past.

    Yesterday we received a mass mailing fund-raising letter from them. Sweet Thing read this article about Sarah and the ADA -- she then dashed off a letter to the ADA: "Any organization that deals with Sarah Palin will not get a penny of my money. Take me off your mailing list."

    We've been married almost 51 years and I learned a long time ago the correct response to her is "Yes, Dear!!"

      I wrote the ADA off years ago when, like most of the other disease-oriented fundraising groups, its officials did nothing to support the ACA or, better yet, single payer insurance. When I receive my next begging letter from the ADA, I'll write a note on the return slip and send it back. I don't even mind putting my own stamp on it.

      Unsurprisingly for any charity connected to Sarah Palin (they're always crooked in some way), the ADA has a terrible record of actual giving but a good record for living high on the hog.

      Don't give them a penny. Ever.

  21. Okay.

    The difference is they were INVITED to this ADA event to be presenters.

    And they were probably told not to come to the GOP convention because there was absolutely nothing for them there. Her name would not be mentioned and she would NOT be on stage under any circumstances.

    She is in big fish in small pond mode now. And the ponds are getting smaller and smaller.

    BTW, I've been in Riverside. It's a nice little community but by California standards it is "backwoods". Fresno and Bakersfield have more juice. You just don't go to Riverside unless you have a very good reason.

    Her being in Riverside won't effect the rest of California in any way. I doubt it will even be reported on my local news. Had it not been for here, I never would have known she was in my state.

    I will be telling the ADA off. I have been diabetic for many, many years. They really don't care about curing the disease, they just support all the crap people need to buy that have it. Their diabetic diet is bullshit, they just want you to take more insulin. I remember being in the hospital and I could not believe the shit they served at meals, cinnamon rolls, regular rolls, all kinds of crap that would drive up your blood sugar and the nurses just said it was the ADA diabetic diet. Then they would just shoot you full of insulin if you ate that stuff. Whatever.

    Dear Fundraising team,

    I understand that for some reason, your Riverside, CA chapter has chosen to engage the discredited, anti-health advocate and failed politican Sarah Palin and her husband to present an award on the flimsiest of reasons - the recipient has known her for a couple years. Your award, your choice. But you might want to consider that politicizing a health organization in this way will alienate many of those, like me, who have been a supporter of ADA in the past.
