Palin and Beck to mark 9/11 in Alaska

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) will welcome Fox News personality Glenn Beck to her home state to mark the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

Palin and Beck will reunite Saturday in Anchorage, two weeks after the “Restoring Honor” rally Beck hosted on the National Mall, at which Palin spoke.

“We can count on Glenn to make the night interesting and inspiring, and I can think of no better way to commemorate 9/11 than to gather with patriots who will ‘never forget,'” Palin wrote on her Facebook page.

There is one key difference, though, between the “Restoring Honor” rally and Beck’s event in Anchorage: This one costs attendees. Tickets for the event range from a low of $73.75 per person (including taxes and fees) to a high of $225, for a spot in the arena and participation in a “meet and greet.”

“Glenn had always intended to donate the speaking fee from the event on Saturday, September 11th in Alaska to Special Operations Warrior Foundation. Governor Palin is not and was never going to receive a fee for introducing Glenn at this event,” a Beck spokesman said of the proceeds.

The event will bring together the two conservative heavyweights, whose speeches and heavy draw had led some to even suggest the two might share a presidential ticket to challenge President Obama in two years.

Obama will participate in a wreath-laying ceremony Saturday at the Pentagon; Vice President Biden will join in services at Ground Zero.
