Kiss of Fail Palin Gets Un-vite, Sulks, Pouts, Prevails. Sorta.

Palin dinner: Fish–Or chicken?

When Sarah Palin dropped the puck at hockey games during the the 2008 campaign, the home teams lost. This weekend Rudy Guiliano invited her to a Yankee’s game. They lost. So what the freak were the National Republican Congressional Committee and the National Republican Senatorial Committee thinking when they invited Kiss of Fail Palin to deliver the keynote address at their annual fundraising dinner?

Palin, perhaps knowing that her presence is curse not a blessing, backed out of fundraiser–or maybe it’s because she really is afraid of "overexposure." Whatever, she said she couldn’t make it. Which is lots more polite than the times before when she said yes (GOP Representatives’ Retreat, CPAC) and then backed out. And lots nicer that suddenly deciding to show up at a Memorial Day event in a mini skirt and demanding to speak, though she had never RSVP’ed.

Oh, wait. That’s kinda what she did. According to the Hill,

Sen. John Cornyn, head of the NRSC, grew nervous about Palin’s staff’s unwillingness to commit the governor to attending. As the time to print invitations approached, the two committees turned instead to a new keynoter, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich

But then Palin, the Media Whore of Babble-On, had a change of heart and

her advisers approached organizers saying she would be near Washington and would like to come.

And speak. But such was not to be. Well she could have a place at a table and get a shout out, but NRCC head Rep. Pete Sessions

didn’t want the former Speaker [Newt] overshadowed by someone who had not helped raise the millions the dinner is expected to pull in. Sessions said Palin could be introduced, but would not be allowed to speak. Palin’s team was offended that she was not given the chance to speak and said they would not send the governor to the dinner, even though she is in Washington on Monday.

And of course, Palin’s spokeholes made sure word of the intercine spat was leaked, because their job is to make sure Gov GILF always looks like a wounded bird who is wronged, but never wrong.
