Palin Is “Like, No” for GOP Dinner Keynote Speaker
ZOMG!!! Poor Palin, her name is being taken in vain by her very own party who are claiming she’s the keynote speaker for the Senate-House dinner in Washington, D.C., one of the biggest Republican gatherings of the year.
Gosh, she was gonna speak at a GOP Representatives retreat then backed out, claiming duties at home–which oddly meant attending the Alfalfa Club dinner in D.C. just up the road from the retreat in Hot Springs Virginia. And the neo-con tease also first said yes and then no to delivering the keynote speech for CPAC. Instead she sent a video tape.
The Senate-House dinner is the annual fundraiser for the Republican Party’s congressional re-election efforts. The NRSC issued a press release about Palin’s pending dinner pearls of wisdom which was picked by major news services, but her spokeshole Bill Mcallister and Gov GILF herself are very confused. Said McAllister who was asked by his boss-lady why she was in the papers this time:
I communicated with the governor directly and she did not know anything about it…I pointed out the (National Republican Senatorial Committee) press release and she was like, no.
McAllister did say Palin had been invited to the meal.
NRSC spokesman Brian Walsh said Monday night that the staff of the governor’s national political action committee, SarahPAC, had confirmed Palin would indeed speak at the Senate-House dinner. SarahPAC also arranged for Gov. GILF to speak at the Vanderburgh County Right to Life Spring Banquet on April 16, which is still confirmed, and youbetcha the folks in Evansville thrilled!
That 2,050 seat banquet in Evansville, billed as "the nation’s largest right to life dinner," has sold out, so an overflow hall seating 2,500 has been booked for a simulcast beamed to an additional 2,500 guests. The event hall will have to buy additinal silverwear and table linens to accomodate the additional guests, so Sarah better not let them down!
According to the Evansville Courier Press, while in Evansville with the First Dude Todd and baby Trig, Palin
also will attend a private event hosted by SMILE on Down Syndrome, a local group that provides resources and support for people with Down syndrome and their families.
