Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin at the Glenn Beck “Restoring Honor” rally Aug. 28 in Washington.
Fox News mainstays and tea-party superstars Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin are joining forces for a big-ticket event in Anchorage, Alaska, on Sept. 11. Ostensibly, it’s just a “coincidence” that this right-wing pep rally is happening on such an auspicious date.
Tickets reportedly range from $73.75 to $225. And as Gawker pointed out Thursday, it’s not clear where the proceeds will go at this point. —KA

The show originally featured only Beck, a popular Fox News Channel personality, according to Christopher Cox, the Anchorage-based promoter of the event. Cox later thought of adding the former Alaska governor and 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee, and she agreed to it, he said.
Cox said the date of the event is a coincidence. Cox originally was eyeing Sept. 4, but did not want to compete with the Alaska State Fair, and moved the date to a week later, which worked out better for Beck as well.
“And you know what, it’s a great date for me, for America, for Alaska,” Cox said.
