Palin: No, I’m not speaking at the Reagan Library next week

posted at 10:32 pm on July 30, 2009 by Allahpundit

Palin fans have been murmuring excitedly about this event for awhile now, with good reason. It’s a natural venue for her to make her first post-gubernatorial appearance. It’s closed to the press, her pal John Ziegler is emceeing, and it would let her symbolically lay claim to the Reagan mantle that her fans have bestowed on her. The organizers of the event, the Republican Women Federated of Simi Valley, went so far as to say a few weeks ago that she was scheduled to attend.

And now, this.

As repeatedly stated to several in the media over the last week, former Governor Sarah Palin is not committed to attend the Simi Valley Republican Women’s event at the Reagan Library and in fact is not attending the event. Neither the Governor’s state staff nor SarahPAC has ever committed to attending this event or speaking at this event, and even requested that the Governor’s name be removed from the invitation several weeks ago. The Governor has other work and commitments to take care of at that time. She looks forward to visiting her friends in California soon.

All event requests must be confirmed with Meghan Stapleton of SarahPAC. Additionally, all invitations bearing the Governor’s name must be approved by her attorney before proceeding.

Thank you.
Meghan Stapleton

Conservatives 4 Palin is quick to point out that Palin herself never said she would be there, or at least not publicly. I’ll be curious to hear what the organizers have to say about that tomorrow, especially given her track record of miscommunications when being booked for events. If it’s true that they invented the fact of her attendance in hopes of pressuring her to come, they owe her a groveling apology for getting her fans’ hopes up. In the meantime, though, what could she have scheduled that’s so critical that she can’t skip it for a big lower-48 debut on Ronald Reagan’s home turf? It’s political gold. Stay tuned.

Maybe you are the person who keeps making these baseless ethics charges.(?) I think I’m going to quit biting at your anti-Palin snarks to do my part to get the click count down on this stuff. (Seemed to work a little with your Meghan McCain lovefests.) Maybe I’ll only click when Ed makes a post about Palin — at least he can be relatively impartial.

Great. The roof is falling in around the country, and Obama doesn’t know his head from his a**. But the media will be flooding back to Alaska and to California to find out what’s going on here.

“This is the third or fourth event that she was scheduled to appear only to cancel. She needs to fire whomever is managing her schedule, image.”

I disagree. It looks to me like people tend to put her name on events without getting a commitment in order to draw interest. The statement says quite clearly that she directly asked them to remove her name from the event “several weeks ago” and that was apparently never done.

Why is that HER fault?

Looks to me that clearly the Simi Valley Republican Women are at fault here or whoever they paid to organize the event is to blame. If someone asks you directly to remove their name from the event, you fail to remove their name from the event, then they come out publicly saying they are not attending the event, you can’t make it look like it is that person’s fault.

Wither the Republican Women blew it or their organizer lied to them.

On election night, she had wanted to address the crowd in Phoenix after John McCain’s concession speech. Steve Schmidt, the campaign’s head strategist, refused to grant her request. She stood teary eyed with husband Todd behind campaign as he addressed the crowd….”

Sarah came with her speech in hand and had not coordinated with McCain’s people — those amazing org skills on display once again.

Bradky on July 30, 2009 at 10:55 PM

…and yet her speech was the high point of the career, even without the sterling guidance of the McCain campaign.

Funny, huh?

Why is it that you only show up on Gov. Palin threads?

Cindy Munford on July 30, 2009 at 11:00 PM

Because he’s an effing homo who hates woman.

obviously

Maybe it’s one of those biased MSM newspapers.

Cindy Munford on July 30, 2009 at 11:00 PM

Because it pleases me.

She never said she would appear. It’s the same old setup helped along by the RINOS. I can’t wait to do the same to the RINO candidate in the primaries.

THANK GOD THE TROLLS ARE BACK!!!

We thought you had all died! NONE of you bothered to appear in any of the previous threads about Obama’s free-falling polls. Glad to see the rumors of your demise were greatly exaggerated.

haha +1!!!!11111!

The SP trolls are obnoxious and idiotic, but they make things interesting AND get the thread count up. Sometimes I wonder if these trolls aren’t on AP’s payroll instead of Axelrod’s? hmmm….

She gets invited to a lot of events and people assume she is coming.

TimeTraveler on July 30, 2009 at 11:06 PM

AP, those Conservatives4Palin folks called you a sissy or something.

KelliD on July 30, 2009 at 11:01 PM

I wouldn’t worry about it if I were AP

Having a bunch of sycophants from a blog one one hundredth of a size of mine call me a sissy?

Like a wisp of wind

Apparently! Poptech without the “statistic” skills. Thank goodness.

Cindy Munford on July 30, 2009 at 11:06 PM

“Steve Schmidt, the campaign’s head strategist, refused to grant her request. ”

Why a campaign’s head strategist has ANY authority whatsoever at a concession speech is beyond me. At that point you should be doing exactly the OPPOSITE of what your “head strategist” is saying.

Where does it say she requested to give that speech at the last minute? She could have requested and been denied that morning, the day before, etc…

If campaign members were helping her with the speech, it makes sense that the campaign manager knew about it.

Common Sense 101

You fail.
