    It's a non story. Palin never confirmed, big deal, it's a fundraiser.

    Mention Palin and the rabid left goes off, chasing their tails and sniffing each other butts. I laugh as I watch the slapnuts on the left reassure themselves that she's not a threat.

    Oh, I'm sure you do laugh. I laughed when I watched McCain's answer on Meet the Press on Sunday as to whether he would support his running mate in 2012.

    MR. GREGORY: In terms of future leaders of the Republican Party, would you like to see Sarah Palin become president?

    SEN. McCAIN: I'd like to see her compete. I think we've got some very good candidates: Jon Huntsman and--the problem when I run down these names, I always leave, leave out a, a name--Bobby Jindal, Tim Pawlenty. There's, there's so many. There's a lot of good, fresh talent out there.

    MR. GREGORY: But would you support Palin?

    SEN. McCAIN: Oh, I'd have to see who the candidates are and, and what the situation is at the time. But have no doubt of my respect, admiration and love for Sarah and her family.

    Yeah, she's a real threat alright.

    I dunno, Fox News ran it. Inviting her, confirming her, then saying you are going a different direction...I think disinviting her is being kind.

    EDIT: Watching that thing makes me hope the GOP realizes just how filled with hot air he really is. Who is he talking to here? Liberals? Because all he's doing in this speech is rambling about how bad the Dems are and not even bothering to talk about what the Republicans are going to do better. Oh and he's bashing George W. Bush. Talking about how bad the Bush administration was. In fact all he seems to say is "let's talk about it." Just fairly ambiguous references to ideas they have but no real explanation of how they would implement them. How is this any different than the past? How is this any indication of the GOP's plan for fixing problems?

    Blah blah blah.

    Nah, the GOP still believes Noot is revered by their supporters. That may be true, but only because the Americans that used to support them got tired of Noot's incompetency as a leader and left the Republicans out to hang.

    Then again, the GOP is still fairly convinced that it's electoral problems are caused by it's failure to move far enough to the left.

    Well, we'll see what's up in 18 months, when the Messiah, with all his massive inexperience and callowness, have wreaked havoc on the nation.

    Well according to Brian Walsh of the NRSC they had confirmation from her staff because they had went all the way to the point of issuing press releases telling of her being selected to be the key note speaker. However Palin's staff later told the NRSC and the NRCC they could not commit the event to the governors calender until the end of the legislative season in Alaska. The NRSC and NRCC decided they weren't going to wait that long for her to officially commit and pulled in Gingrich.

    NRSC: We would like to invite Sarah Palin to be the key speaker at the fund raiser.
    Palin Staff: Oh that's WONDERFUL! She would be thrilled to do this!
    NRSC: Great, we'll book it.
    Palin Staff: Totally awesome!
    Palin Staff after talking to Palin: Well can we get back with you on this after legislative session is over up here...kinda busy you know?
    NRSC: Ummm...what?
    Palin Staff: Yeah, we just need some time to make sure we can actually do this.
    NRSC: Hang on a sec.
    NRSC: You know on second thought, don't worry about it...you guys are obviously busy. We're gonna go a different direction so don't worry about being here.
    Palin Staff: Oh, well okay...but hey, we never said we would actually be there.
    NRSC: Yeah okay...hey gotta go, Newt is on the phone.

    She didn't decline, she was disinvited. And it's not a good thing for her.

    Guess who's not coming for dinner.
    The NRSC and the NRCC were under the distinct impression that Palin would headline the annual fundraising dinner. The committees went so far as to issue a joint press release trumpeting her appearance and national news outlets quickly noted her prime speaking engagement. Palin’s PAC indicated to the committees that she would attend.

    But the governor’s office later said that it had not put the event on the schedule. Three people close to planning for the dinner said Palin’s aides proceeded to hem and haw about the appearance, both publicly and privately, leading the committees to decide to replace her because they were nearing a deadline to send invitations and other fundraising materials to their donors.

    “After initially confirming her attendance, Governor Palin’s team informed the committees that her gubernatorial responsibilities in Alaska prevented her from committing until the end of the legislative session,” NRSC spokesman Brian Walsh said. “We completely understand and respect Governor Palin’s focus on her official state business.”

    But the NRSC spokesman went out to point out that “there is obviously an enormous amount of planning that goes into this annual event. For that reason, we invited and are honored to have former Speaker Newt Gingrich join us as our speaker at the 2009 Senate-House Dinner.”
