It says a lot about the Republican party when they schedule speakers for their national convention, and don’t invite the last President and Vice President who were members of their Party.
While John McCain has been invited to speak, Sarah Palin has not. As if it was by Palin’s choice, she announced on Fox that she would not be speaking, and that “This year is a good opportunity for other voices to speak at the convention.” More likely is was not Palin’s choice but the decision of the leaders of the GOP. They were probably fearful that the media would play these clips that would be embarrassing to the GOP.
Maybe they were fearful that Todd would take up too many rooms at the hotel, and there wouldn’t be enough for the delegates.
Maybe they were worried that Shailey Tripp would appear to sign copies of her book.
Maybe they were worried that the Sarah Palin-look alike, who will be stripping at Thee Doll House in Tampa, would sneak into the convention and give a more coherent speech than Sarah.
Maybe they were worried that Bristol would appear in her monkey costume
to drum up some more votes.
Maybe they were worried Stephen Colbert would appear at the convention, on his stallion, warning the British that the Americans were coming.
Maybe they were worried that Sarah wouldn’t be able to find the convention, thinking that Tampa was a country!
Maybe they were worried that Sarah would forget who Romney’s wife was.
Maybe they were worried that if they let Sarah speak she might call Mitt, “O’Romney”, or she might announce that she was still Undefeated.
The amazing thing about Sarah Palin is that she has such a short memory. She “reiterated” that she fully supports Mitt Romney. It was just last summer that she made derogatory remarks regarding Mitt Romney. She said:
“In my opinion any mandate coming from government is not a good thing,”
“[E]ven on a state level and even a local level, mandates coming from a governing body, it’s tough for a lot of us independent Americans to accept, because we have great faith in the private sectors and our own families, and our own businessmen and women making decisions for ourselves.”
Twisting the political knife in a bit further Palin said that appealing to the tea party will be a “big challenge” for Romney.
As recently as February of 2012, Palin attacked Romney for attacking Gingrich, who attacked Romney, after saying he wouldn’t attack.
If Sarah Palin has already gotten her new clothes for the convention, and now isn’t going, where could she wear them? Maybe to church?! I bet they haven’t seen them yet.
