By the time she gets to Phoenix, he'll be ... raring to go. Sarah Palin is headed to Arizona on Friday in an effort to rev up the conservative base for Sen. John McCain, the man who brought her to political prominence by naming the then-Alaska governor as his vice presidential running mate in 2008.

To get her game face ready, Palin ripped three Arizona Democratic lawmakers: Reps. Ann Kirkpatrick, Harry Mitchell, and Gabrielle Giffords, The Hill newspaper said. "We're going to fire them and send them back to the private sector, which has been shrinking thanks to their destructive government-growing policies," Palin wrote on her Facebook page before her departure for Arizona.

McCain, who is running for re-election, is in a Republican Senate primary fight against former U.S. Rep. J.D. Hayworth, a conservative who is courting members of the Tea Party movement.

About 1,000 people are expected at the Pima County Fairgrounds on Friday for a McCain rally, featuring Palin. She is also scheduled to speak at a second McCain event in Mesa on Saturday.

Our New Approach to Comments

In an effort to encourage the same level of civil dialogue among Politics Daily’s readers that we expect of our writers – a “civilogue,” to use the term coined by PD’s Jeffrey Weiss – we are requiring commenters to use their AOL or AIM screen names to submit a comment, and we are reading all comments before publishing them. Personal attacks (on writers, other readers, Nancy Pelosi, George W. Bush, or anyone at all) and comments that are not productive additions to the conversation will not be published, period, to make room for a discussion among those with ideas to kick around. Please read our Help and Feedback section for more info.
