On Monday, an announcement hit the wires that Sarah Palin would headline one of the biggest Republican gatherings of the year, the Senate-House dinner in Washington, D.C., a fundraiser for the National Republican Senatorial Committee and the National Republican Congressional Committee.
But in classic sit-com fashion, reports the Anchorage Daily News, Gov GILF knew nothing about this and went to her spokesperson Bill McAllister:
McAllister said Palin asked him why The Associated Press was reporting that she was going to do this. "I pointed out the (National Republican Senatorial Committee) press release and she was like, no," he said.
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. And as of this morning the announcement is still up on their site.
Now SarahPAC is attempting to explain the embarrassing situation. SarahPAC is supposed to gather the invites, sort through them and present them to Alaska’s Frost Lady, but oopsy-doodle, somehow something went awry. Meg Stapleton, SarahPAC spokesperson said:
Someone helping me out on the East Coast … in the enthusiasm of Sarah Palin and the enthusiasm of providing some sort of response confirmed that the governor was coming, and that wasn’t appropriate because the governor didn’t even know of the invitation.
Okay, okay, maybe this is what happened (or maybe this is what happens when I watch too much Lifetime Movie Network). Cue dream sequence:
In an effort to sow dissension within the GOP, an cleverly disguised operative from the Vast Leftwing Conspiracy infiltrated SarahPAC on the East Coast (home of the liberal media elite) and using the name Muffy Hunter–an "in the know" alias showing her alliance to teh gays–purposefully made of mess of things. Now Muffy will shed her Talbot knock offs and don VLC-issued, Janine Garafalo-inspired camouflage pants and tank top before slinking off the the basement coffee house headquarters to meet with other undercover DFHs and wait to receive her orders while eating vegan quiche and drinking free trade soy lattes. Chaos! Confusion! Cacaphony! Healthcare reform! Empoyees Free Choice Act! Food safety! Choice! Marriage equality! Equal time in broadcasting! These are the goals! Bouwhahahaha!
But let’s face it, Palin has a track record of dissing the Grand Old Party’s parties. She lied to the House Republicans and ditched them out to attend the Alfalfa Club dinner. Then she backed out of CPAC. And she’s waffling on the Senate-House dinner. Tantalizes Stapelton:
She may go, she may not go; that’s a decision for her to make and we’ll present it formally after the (legislative) session is over to determine whether she wants to go.
