As I write this, it’s raining and I hear thunder in the sky, or it could just be the distant echo of Harleys:
WASHINGTON — The sound of motorcycles is filling the streets of Washington this Memorial Day weekend.
The group Rolling Thunder is in town for a motorcycle ride and demonstration. The ride itself takes place on Sunday, but on Saturday the group held an event on the National Mall with speakers and music.
The non-profit group’s mission is drawing attention to American troops who fought in wars and are still unaccounted for.
More about the Rolling Thunder organization and rally here.
Sarah Palin made a grand entrance at the Rolling Thunder biker rally on Sunday, wearing a black Harley-Davidson helmet and visibly enjoying herself as a crush of reporters and bikers swarmed her motorcycle.
Ms. Palin, the former governor of Alaska, was joined by her husband, Todd, who was wearing a matching helmet, and her daughters, Bristol and Piper. Their arrival at the Pentagon North parking lot turned the lazy Sunday morning into a celebrity affair.
Ms. Palin climbed aboard a chopper, assisted by a member of the Rolling Thunder staff, but was unable to move because there were so many members of the press snapping photos. Organizers eventually brought in police, also on motorcycles, to clear a path.
Some video is below. Here’s the money quote from Sarah: “I love that smell of the emissions!”
Al Gore and Michael Bloomberg unavailable for comment:
Update: Nice photos from today at SarahPAC.
