Yesterday Sarah Palin spoke in San jose. Today, she appears, even as I blog, in the Perspectives’ speakers series at the Sacramento Convention Center, along with–get this–Howard Dean.

Still waiting for some Twitter action on this one.

And by the way, if you’re a Palin fan–or the opposite–you may be interested in Scott Shafer’s Monday report on the California Tea Party movement. Check The California Report’s archive if you miss it on-air.
