On Febrary 6, 2010, Palin appeared as the keynote speaker at a Tea Party convention, declaring herself a supporter of the Tea Party movement, while saying it should be absorbed into the Republican Party. She stated:
During her 40 minute speech, she attacked President Obama as soft on terrorists, out of touch, and elitist, and said the U.S. was ready for a revolution. She also called for the resignation of Attorney General Eric Holder because he had authorized the giving of Miranda rights to Umar Abdulmutallab, the so-called Christmas Day bomber. As Palin left the stage, the Tea Party conventioneers chanted "Run, Sarah, Run." She was criticized for reportedly accepting a speaking fee of $100,000, but the event sponsor was prohibited by contract from discussing her fee and stated that speakers of Palin's quality require more than a handshake to appear.This is about the people, and it's bigger than any one king or queen of a tea party, and it's a lot bigger than any charismatic guy with a teleprompter.
