It’s a woman’s prerogative to change her mind
even if she can’t spell ‘prerogative’

The former Queen of Moosylvania is bailin’ again:
Just days after officially stepping down as governor of Alaska, former GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin is dropping out of an advertised speaking engagement in Simi Valley.
Palin was slated to attend on Aug. 8 the 50th anniversary gala of the Simi Valley Republican Women, Federated, at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum. It would have been her first public appearance since leaving office and had been widely reported by media outlets.
Pat Saraceno, the spokeswoman for the Simi Valley Republican Women, said they found out Thursday that Palin wasn’t coming.
“I had direct knowledge as of yesterday. I am not going to comment on how or from whom,” said Saraceno.
“There’s no harm, no foul. We always respected the (former) governor’s right to change course.”
Saraceno said the group would not be commenting further.
That seems a little, um, terse, doesn’t it? I wonder why? Oh:
It was on Thursday that Palin’s spokeswoman Meghan Stapleton made public the news of the decision not to attend the event via Palin’s Facebook page. She wrote that Palin had never committed to coming to Simi Valley and had requested several weeks ago that her name be removed from the invitation.
So, according to Saraceno, she just found out as of yesterday, but Meg "Lips Apart, Lies Coming Out" Stapleton said that Palin opposite-RSVP’d a couple of weeks ago. Which… means… that either the Simi Valley Republican Women Federated were selling tickets under false pretenses or, well… you know the drill.
It seems like only a few weeks ago that someone wrote:
Sarah Palin breaks open her High School Musical day-planner and makes plans for August 8th for her coming out party … in pencil:
Unless someone with a more bitchin’ car invites her to the prom….
I guess this is not one of those "no one could have predicted" moments…
