Palin’s office to GOP: Er, she didn’t agree to keynote your fundraiser yet

posted at 8:05 pm on March 17, 2009 by Allahpundit

The state of the Republican leadership in microcosm: They can’t even coordinate their own events anymore.

The NRSC and NRCC announcement of Palin’s leading role in the event made national news. The Associated Press distributed the story and it appeared on the Web sites of the Washington Post, Chicago Tribune, Dallas Morning News and USA Today, among many others.

[Spokesman Bill] 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.

“The committees have confirmed this with the governor’s political staff at SarahPAC, not her official staff in Juneau, so it’s understandable why there may be a miscommunication here,” Walsh said.

Momentarily forgetting that Sarahcuda can do no wrong, Matt Lewis reads SarahPAC’s snafu as a commentary on her “leadership and organizational competency” and “merely the latest example of a sloppy mistake.” Be merciful to him. If you’d prefer to argue that the buck stops here there, try blaming one of the advisors listed by WaPo instead. Exit question: Surely a governor with a 64 percent approval rating can sneak away for a few days in June to resurrect her party’s fundraising prospects, can’t she?

I will concede that equating someone to sullivan may have been too low a blow. My apologies to AP.

That being said – he needs to suck it up, put a smile on his face and occasionally join the love Palin chorus. It might lift his spirits.

Hey, anyone who doesn’t like Palin should put their money where their mouth is.

Don’t just spout meaningless attacks on Sarah. Tell us who you support for the GOP in 2012. Donate to that person. If you’re a Democrat troll, go back to HuffPo or KOS.

I happen to be a strong Palin supporter; and I know I am not alone. Reputable polls have found that 90+% of Republicans have a favorable view of Palin, 50%+ of independents according to Rasmussen. Her PAC has raised milllions, I have donated myself many times.

That’s Steele job. Is he so busy painting the RNC office that he can’t hire staff and do his job properly?

chunderroad on March 18, 2009 at 2:10 PM

Why shouldn’t SarahPAC apologize? Sounds like they’re responsible for the screw-up.

Allahpundit on March 17, 2009 at 8:14 PM

ORLY? It sounds like the tools who contacted her PAC v. her Juneau office and did not get a confirmation from the Governor herself screwed up. Well, it looks like the GOP still carries on irresponsibly and shirks blame like the Dems say. I am very disappointed this party still has no effective leadership.

chunderroad on March 18, 2009 at 2:14 PM

I just went back into the archives and on November 3, 2008 Allahpundit said this about Sarah Palin:

“Why didn’t maverick follow the Obama playbook and roll Palin out as a post-partisan candidate instead of as a hero to the base? Her social con credentials and Jacksonian appeal are impeccable; she could have gone out there, stumped to McCain’s left and the grassroots wouldn’t have loved her an iota less.”

My point: Allahpundit is suggesting a political strategy here that only an adept and intelligent person could ever pull off. There goes ‘the Sarah Palin is a moron argument’ and suggest who the true morons were in the McCain campaign: McCain and his handlers.

technopeasant on March 18, 2009 at 2:15 PM

Don’t you people realize that this site has now been infiltrated with lots of Romney fans who want to put down Sarah because she poses the biggest threat for Romney to get the 2012 nomination?

If Mitt Romney had those kinds of fans, he would have beat McCain in the GOP primaries. He might have kneecapped his opponents in the last election, but I doubt he is behind this, even if he will probably run in 2012. This is astroturfing on the White Houes’s orders.

Nice try, but you fail again. I see that you don’t provide any links or dates for your poll numbers. Typical of anti-palin trolls.

Here’s the link to the Rasmussen poll taken January 2009

Norwegian on March 18, 2009 at 3:22 PM

Let’s see if I get this straight.

Sarah Palin is not a favorite of the Republican establishment and RNC and most RINO’s (exception McCain). Some members of it even hate her guts or have total disdain for her based on personal animosity, her non-elitist, humble background or her fervent belief in Reagan conservatism.

Sarah Palin, for heavensakes was the latest losing VP candidate, she lives as far away as you can (except Hawaii) from the tentacles of national political power. She is the governor of a state with only 3 electoral votes that virtually will always vote GOP.

Since early Dec. 2008 when Sarah helped Chambliss win his Senate runoff, she has not been active in national politics, did not attend CPAC, and did not speak to the Congressional members at their weekly retreat when she was in Washington to attend the Alfalfa Club, which many observers consider a snub.

Sure Sarah, a week after the election (Rasmussen poll) was considered very popular with the base, but in the final analysis while Sarah virtually retreated to Alaska to mind her own business, fellows like Romney, Huckabee, Jindal, Sanford, Crsit, huntsman and others have been way more active in advancing the national GOP message recently and much more prominent in Republican circles and in the MSM in the last 90 days that they have been rewarded with the spotlight accompanying that exposure; and an objective observer might think that one of these gentlemen would be designated for the prestigious leadership keynote spot at the fundraiser dinner.

That this invitation was offered at all to Governor Palin would apparently be out of step with political GOP reality but let me offer you an analogy:

For eight months while Tiger Woods was recovering from his knee surgery weekly golf tournaments were played but the name Tiger Woods was never far from the lips of his fellow golfers, the golf fans or the sports media.

Sarah Palin is the Tiger Woods of the Republican Party. She has never truly been far away at all.

And to boot SarahPAC’s coffers by all reports is overflowing with cold hard cash.

I think Romney was the best candidate offered to the republican party since Ronald Reagan. But, the reality of the republican party today is that Romney, nor Ronald Reagan, and probably Jesus himself wouldnt get nominated in this or any other national party that matters. All three of those guys, Mitt, Reagan, Jesus, if they were to run today would be bashed by morons like Huckabite for not believing in the Nicene Creed and the dumb part of the GOP prefers people dumb like them…like Sarah Palin…so they can relate to them.

And I dont like any of the irrelevant parties like Bob Barr either..I guess that is where I differ from PopTech.

So, being a grown up, I vote for the best candidate of the two parties which almost always means republican. But, a lot of people’s eyes were opened in this last primary as to why the party doesnt succeed anymore. We nominated John McCain for hells sake. What else do you need to know?

The Wall,

There you go again showing all of us what an “elitist” arrogant person you are. Thank God the rest of the country likes candidates who are “down to earth” and don’t think they are better than everybody else. If Romney had not had his money, he wouldn’t have won one single state! By the way, I am a TOTAL supporter for Mike Huckabee because he can be a President for all the people, not just the rich. He supports the rich, but he also cares about the middle class and the poor. If that makes him a populist, so be it, because in case you didn’t know, most people in this country are the middle class and they would much rather vote for Mike Huckabee who cares about them than a Mitt Romney who would rather go to their Country Club.

I also support Sarah Palin because she is authentic like Mike Huckabee, you know something Mitt Romney doesn’t know anything about. Didn’t anybody ever tell you that intelligence is more than being smart, it’s using your brain in situations and being able to communicate to the people in a way they understand – making sense. That is what Mike Huckabee is all about, he can take complicated information and communicate it to people so they can understand it. This is a gift, and one that could be very useful as President. Most of the people on this website put down Mike Huckabee when he was running because they believed false information about him…you know the way you are trying to give false information about Sarah Palin now. Hopefully people will do their own research and get the whole truth about both Mike Huckabee and Sarah Palin.
At least Sarah Palin is supported by Ingraham, Limbaugh and lots of other TV pundits. None of those people supported Mike Huckabee, they chose Mitt Romney. They pushed him everyday on their shows, etc. But, you know what, the people of this country chose a Mike Huckabee or Sarah Palin to rally behind because they are likeable, authentic people who care about America and not just what’s in it for them. Mike Huckabee has been put down about how he Governed in Arkansas. He knew raising some taxes because the people needed better schools and roads would not “look” good when he ran for President, but he cared about what was good for his State. That’s a person who would be a President for our country and not for the polls every day.

VFT on March 18, 2009 at 5:30 PM

I listen to most of the talk show hosts, but I believe where they all go wrong is when they put their necks out on a limb and endorse a candidate or appear to endorse a candidate and then that person screws up or fizzles; a prime example is when Rush Limbaugh touted Bobby Jindal so highly and then Jindal goes on to bomb in his rebuttal to Obama’s SOTU. Like Sarah Palin and the Couric interview, JIndal will recover also and have better days.

I wish that instead of sucking up to political candidates (especially Sean Hannity) that the talk show hosts would expound on their positions and then let the listening audience decide for themselves; and that includes Huckabee.

I live by the 11th Commandment. I am a passionate Sarah Palin supporter but I will not take a potshot at someone else. When I talk about Jindal sucking on one occasion that is not a shot JIndal, but accepting ‘it is what it is’.

As to the trolls, who strive to label somebody a ‘moron’ after one bad performance, they have certainly been blessed by a lack of education or teaching that is supposed to teach students to put events in the proper context or by becoming Fascists in which they deliberately choose to shut their mind off to the reality of ‘having a bad day’ or ‘the possiblity of future improvement’.

I’ll be the first one to say if Sarah Palin had a bad day or a bad performance.

FURTHER PROOF that a Huckabite is the same as an Obama supporter…just pro-life…other than that, they have the same jealous, class envy, loser mentality.

Isn’t it interesting that you refer to Huckabee as Lucifer when the guy you support has a good chance of being the Anti-Christ.

HA HA HA HA HA!!!!

Seriously dude. They should check Mike Huckabite’s scalp for the 666 marking. They should, for sure, check his (big ol) sons for 666 markings. And, of course, they should check Mrs. Huckabeeee for 666 markings…she could be the wife of Satan.

After hearing from my bro the reasons why he hates her reminds me, for about the 1000th time: misogyny runs deep and has no political party.
She’s been destroyed already, stop with the wet dreams…when will people cover REAL news like: Obama, thru Holder is disallowing pilots to carry weapons. THAT’s important.

OOops, Ed covered it…my bad, sort of.

Christine, no worry, the fixation with the Messiah’s body parts will soon dissipate as more males loses their jobs and emasculated in the spirit of hope and change and their wives become angry at a sudden onrush of impotence.

Finally, something I can agree with. ha ha

From the Free Republic (FR):

The RNC will report raising $5.1m during the month of February, down from the 5.77m raised in January.

Sarah Palin 2012 Facebook group. Anyone who’s defended her on this thread is most welcome and wanted. We need more enthusiastic supporters.

ZJPolitical on March 18, 2009 at 5:22 PM

Thanks for the invite. I’ve signed up for her Facebook too. Wow! Over 517,000 members. That’s unbelievable given all the bad media coverage of Sarah plus she was largely unknown until September 2008. Go Sarah!

FURTHER PROOF that a Huckabite is the same as an Obama supporter…just pro-life…other than that, they have the same jealous, class envy, loser mentality.

EXACTLY, populists who are economically illiterate.

Poptech on March 18, 2009 at 9:08 PM

Those populists who are economically illiterate can get a much bigger crowd to attend an event than the ol soooo smart Romney!!! As for Huckabee not being able to get people who are intelligent to listen to him…he has the #1 cable show on the weekend with the most people watching him. BTW, they aren’t all Christians…they are liberals, Conservatives, and Independents. Funny how they love him, isn’t it? He is known to be the best communicator in the Repulican Party….guess we don’t all have to be smart like you “The Wall” LOL We don’t need “smart” backstabbers like Romney who definitely broke the 11th Commandment about bashing fellow Republicans during the Primary. Don’t even mention the comment by Mike Huckabee about Mormons…he apologized to Mitt Romney and to all the Mormons for saying that. That’s more than Mitt did when he and his surrogates donated over $500,000 to Club for Growth who just happened to attack Mike Huckabee incessantly starting in Iowa. Funny how that works, isn’t it? CFG never said a bad word about Romney even though he has committed some of the most liberal things in his state: Romneycare which is just like Hillary’s Healthcare program for the U.S. pro-abortion to get elected in Mass. and we can’t forget the first state to accept homosexual marriage (all under his watch as Gov.). How can anybody explain how CFG could support Mitt Romney given his record in Mass? Again money talks!!! Don’t even think I’m jealous about Mitt’s money. I guarantee you that if I ever had half of his money, I would use it more wisely than losing $40M in the primaries to a man (Mike Huckabee) who spent less than $15M all together. Who did you say was a better fiscal Conservative?

The Wall,

Obviously if you think Mike Huckabee could be the anti-Christ you don’t know anything about the Bible. Mike Huckabee lives by his Christian principles…doesn’t change them to get elected (like some people we know). Does that mean he is perfect…no way, nobody is perfect except Jesus Christ.

The reason our country is in such a terrible condition is because we have left our Christian principles. When more people tried to live like a Christian (I am not talking about forcing their religion on everybody) this country was a much better place to live. Mike Huckabee has stated he wouldn’t care if a Pres. nominee was an athiest if he was somebody who had principles and didn’t try to force beliefs on others. That’s how Mike Huckabee governed in Arkansas so get over your self thinking he would not be able to accept other religions. He doesn’t have to believe the way they do, but that also means he has a right to believe in Christian values too. If you want Christians to be tolerant, why is it that you aren’t tolerant?

This is not a Theocracy, this is the United States of America, a Constitutional Republic.

Poptech on March 19, 2009 at 12:57 AM

Mike Huckabee does not want a THEOCRACY..he didn’t want that in Arkansas and would not want that for America. Using Theocracy is a poor excuse to justify not wanting him or Sarah Palin as POTUS. That wouldn’t happen, so try another excuse!!!
