Kryptonite is the radioactive remains of Superman’s native planet and is the ultimate natural weakness of Superman. Palin was kryptonite to John McCain. Even if McCain was Superman, Sarah Palin was lethal to his campaign. Four years later, even though Palin is NOT Romney’s Vice Presidential Choice, the radio-active effects of Sarah Palin may still be strong enough to guarantee an ultimate loss by Mitt Romney. Estimates for the half-life of radioactive material, like Sarah Palin, are uncertain, but estimated to be 5730 years. Thus the effects of Sarah Palin may still be toxic.
Sarah Palin has been criticizing Mitt Romney for over a year. So it should be no surprise to Palin that Romney is not too excited about having any association with Palin. While the list of speakers for the 2012 GOP Convention has not been set, Palin has definitely not been asked. In fact, she has NOT even been invited to the convention. Peter Boyer of the Daily Beast described her as “kryptonite” to swing voters.
Kevin Madden is a spokesman for the Romney campaign. After the 2008 election, he “openly laughed at Ms. Palin’s inexperience during a CNN interview. Madden explained that during the vetting process “ugly things can tend to happen.” As we know, those “ugly things” happened during the campaign since they didn’t happen during what should have been the vetting process. Yet, Palin suggests that any negative impression Madden may have of her is the result of him not doing his “homework” and “believing the BS reporting on my record and reputation that began the day I was tapped to run for VP. I’ll assume and hope he’s evolved since then, perhaps understanding now the leftist media’s agenda against candidates they oppose.”
Mitt Romney’s campaign staff won’t comment on Palin, or on plans for the convention. One unidentified advisor with the campaign indicated Palin would be prohibited from speaking at the Republican convention by her contract with Fox News. In a typical state of confusion, Palin confused her contractual limitations with Fox, with her Constitutional rights. She said that she was confident that “Fox’s top brass would never strip anyone of their First Amendment rights in this regard.”
Palin has admitted, indirectly, that she doesn’t expect to be invited to speak at the Republican National Convention. She said:
“I’m sure I’m not the only one accepting consequences for calling out both sides of the aisle for spending too much money, putting us on the road to bankruptcy, and engaging in crony capitalism.”
“In accepting those consequences, one must remember this isn’t Sadie Hawkins and you don’t invite yourself and a date to the Big Dance.”
If it were the Sadie Hawkins dance, and Palin were planning to come, you can be sure that no Republican would accept an invitation from the Empress; maybe a pimp from the Alaskan Independence Party looking for more customers. No respectable Republican would allow him/her self to be associated with Sarah Palin.
