Who Wants to Go to Nebraska?

Sarah Palin spoke to a rally of 5,000 people in Omaha, Nebraska last night:

"The pundits were saying, 'Check out where she's going. She's going to Nebraska.' The pundits were saying, 'The only reason she would be going there is because they're scared. They have to shore up votes.' I so wanted to reach into that TV and say 'no.' I'm going to Nebraska because I want to go to Nebraska."

Here's what a sales guy from Omaha in the audience had to say:

"She talks to us. She's one of us. She doesn't talk down to us like an Ivy League, Harvard person."

LBOTC: We know the real reason Sarah went to Nebraska, and it wasn't to shore up votes in Omaha for a potential tiebreaker in the electoral college like the pundit wonks on TV have been fed. It was to win votes in western Iowa. Omaha is just across the river and the de factor capitol of western Iowa. We noticed that U.S. Congressman Steve King from Iowa's 5th congressional district was in attendance.
