Palin supports Perry during Cypress visit
Chronicle reporter Joe Holley wrote an article about former Alaska governor Sarah Palin's visit to the Berry Center to throw her support behind Texas governor Rick Perry's re-election campaign.
From the article:
Sunday's event in the Cypress area offered all the trappings of a rock concert driving music, a boisterous crowd and a genuine star. It also included a screeching guitar rendition of the Star Spangled Banner by Ted Nugent that sounded as if the vintage rocker and outspoken conservative channeled Jimi Hendrix.
Wearing a black velvet dress and knee-high suede boots of an Aggie-maroon hue, Palin entered the arena on Perry's arm. The audience responded with a raucous standing ovation, whistles, We love you, Sarah" shouts and flashing cameras. Some had waited outside for a couple of hours in chilly, overcast weather. The 9,500-seat arena was about two-thirds full for the free event.
