From Taegan Goddard's Political Wire:
Said Palin: "Oh, you betcha I'm going to be there. I'm going to speak there because there are people traveling from many miles away to hear what that tea party movement is all about and what that message is that should be received by our politicians in Washington. I'm honored to get to be there."
As for the criticisms that the event seeks to turn a profit, Plain noted, "I won't personally gain from being there. The speaker's fee will go right back into the cause."
