Status of Sarah Palin’s Tea Party appearance in Iowa unconfirmed, then reconfirmed

posted at 12:45 pm on August 31, 2011 by Tina Korbe

Rumors swirled this morning that Sarah Palin’s appearance at a Tea Party rally in Indianola, Iowa, was “no longer confirmed,” but the event’s organizers insist she’ll still be there Saturday:

“As far as I know, everything is still a go,” Tea Party of America organizer Charlie Gruschow told POLITICO in an email Wednesday morning, shortly after a report in The Wall Street Journal stated that she had pulled out of the rally on Saturday near Des Moines.

Palin’s trip to Iowa had renewed speculation of a presidential bid, which she’s left open as an option.

Palin had committed to the rally and announced she would attend. But a source close to Palin told the Journal Wednesday that organizers’ “continued lying,” particularly the confusion over whether former Delaware Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell would speak at the event, prompted her withdrawal. O’Donnell’s appearance had been cancelled and then put back on the agenda Tuesday night.

Ken Crow, founder of Tea Party for America, took the blame for the confusion, saying he’s “naive when it comes to politics and what you are supposed to say and not say.”

“We made mistakes and now we are fixing them,” Crow told ABC News this morning, after talking to Palin’s people to confirm her appearance. “It’s all good.”

Specifically, Crow called the O’Donnell mixup “a mistake.” “I didn’t handle it the way I should have,” he said. “I handled it incorrectly.”

Very nice of Crow to call himself naive and reassure supporters that Palin is “a lady of her word and impeccably honest” (as he also did). But it’s also possible the “sources close to the former Alaska governor” who suggested to both the WSJ and RealClearPolitics that Palin was reconsidering her appearance knew a flap like this would generate additional media coverage. It’s also possible Palin really is a little nervous that appearing alongside O’Donnell will tarnish her brand. (O’Donnell, for her part, is doing her best to turn this to her advantage, tweeting that she accepted her re-invitation to speak because she believes in “rising above it,” whatever “it” is.)

No matter the explanation, the calculated chaos is vintage Palin. As WSJ’s Danny Yadron put it, “Ms. Palin is known for last-minute schedule changes that whipsaw supporters and media across the country.”

It has been documented multiple times on here and other websites. Please don’t play dumb and act like this is something people are making up. Palin is famous for flaking out at the last minute.

ramrants on August 31, 2011 at 12:57 PM

No. It hasn’t. The “fame” is totally fabricated by people who announced without any confirmation that Palin would attend their events and then feigned surprise when she didn’t go. Provide your documentation or drop it.

2. AP is not supposed to “do anything for us”, now, lately, or ever. He’s supposed to work for the site, which he does; he works very hard and we don’t have to like or approve.

Schadenfreude on August 31, 2011 at 1:30 PM

Actually as customers of the site AP does work for us – because without readers pumping up the sitemeter what would HA be?

As a user I do feel I have the choice to express irritation when I see biased disportionate postings. It does seem like unsourced/anonymously sourced rumors about Palin always warrent a thread if only to agitate the readers. That churning of the posters does get old. We seldom see the same level of anonymous smears about the rest of the field.

katiejane on August 31, 2011 at 2:05 PM

On one hand, this sort of thing does seem to keep happening to her. On the other hand, the only people who get really upset about it are the ones who’d never vote for her in a million years. So it kind of evens out.

“rising above it,” whatever “it” is.)

“It” is not a witch.

After the dust settled, who goes to a rally to hear O’Donnell?

Who in the planning committee invited O’Donnell to speak? Did she buy her invitation with a bribe? Has she paid back all of her debts, at least, so she’s not carrying faulty finance baggage on board the Tea Party express?

slickwillie2001 on August 31, 2011 at 2:09 PM

New info?

In the latest episode in the drama over the speaking lineup for Saturday’s Tea Party of America rally in Iowa, organizer Ken Crow said Palin’s staff called this morning to say Palin’s appearance at the rally was “on hold” until three changes were made.

“They said, ‘Ken, can you take care of bing, bing, bing’ and I said, ‘Yessir, I will’ and I did,” Crow, an Indianola Republican told The Des Moines Register.

“Now I’m waiting to hear back.”

Crow said two of the requests were logistical details: Email a copy of the program today, and address concerns about back-stage security and who will be allowed in that area.

Asked about the third request, Crow said: “Can I let that remain private for now?”

Meanwhile, Crow telephoned staff for O’Donnell, a Delaware Republican who ran for the U.S. Senate, to say she can’t speak at Saturday’s event.

“We’re all friends and she’s not coming,” he said, referring to O’Donnell.

I wonder what the third request was?

KBird on August 31, 2011 at 2:05 PM

I believe Palin has a spokesperson. But having one won’t help with a press that doesn’t bother to confirm stories before running them.

In this post, Tina had a sourced story with a mea culpa from Ken Crow accepting responsibility for the mixup, and a story with unnamed sources from WSJ that suggested Palin or her people were at fault. She appears to trust the latter more than the former. What can one do with that?

And in case you REALLY want to know, I actually AM straight. With a very female girlfriend and everything. Don’t fall into that old cliche of thinking that everyone who is pro-gay equality MUST be some sort of flaming queen. Nope.

Amjean on August 31, 2011 at 2:47 PM

Just to acknowledge to all who addressed the csdeven comment. I’ve read some of what you say, and disagreed with him and his tactics. He’s as frustrated that his ‘boy’ is going down, again, as some are that Palin is not in the number one slot, yet.

Let him ban himself.

Lanceman, kingsjester, MadCon, and others, as always, we fight together. We’ve got a big enemy to combat. The rest is really just babble.

Oh, that’s right. You’re not objective. I tend to forget.

MadisonConservative on August 31, 2011 at 2:41 PM

What’s up, MC? Looks like a couple of slapnuts invaded the comments. Are they the typical deadbeat liberals?

BruthaMan on August 31, 2011 at 2:48 PM

To the point of outright attacking someone’s marriage?

Oh, that’s right. You’re not objective. I tend to forget.

MadisonConservative on August 31, 2011 at 2:41 PM

If you can imply that my mother is a troll, can I imply that your marriage is a sham?

No, today MC is engaging in his other favorite activity of attacking his own.

I have no idea if you’re homosexual or not, although I have found that so very often, those who REALLY oppose homosexuals very vociferously seem to be repressing an awful lot…. Vyce on August 31, 2011 at 2:45 PM

But since this is anonymous and we can all say exactly what’s on our minds no matter what, it sorta removes any impetus to pretend to “oppose homosexuals,” wouldn’t you say? I mean, there’s no facade to maintain, is there genius?

Otherwise we’d have reason to wonder why you’d bring up your “very female girlfriend.” I mean, what other kind is there?

Akzed on August 31, 2011 at 2:51 PM

You’re giving Good Lt a headache.

Akzed on August 31, 2011 at 2:45 PM

News to me.

Thanks for the update.

Good Lt on August 31, 2011 at 2:54 PM

fossten on August 31, 2011 at 2:48 PM

Now you’re trolling like a boss.

Well done.

Akzed on August 31, 2011 at 2:51 PM

ha ha…you don’t get out much do ya?

I’ve got a few male friends that have some pretty tom-boyish girlfriends…no make-up, sports and all. And they’re women just the same.
I think what he meant was that he has a “girly girl”—dresses and pink polish

Why do I feel the need to explain this? If you don’t get it, you probably never will.

bridgetown on August 31, 2011 at 2:56 PM

If Palin was in that debate, Obama’s audience would-drop 70%…LOL

idesign on August 31, 2011 at 2:18 PM

Because everyone digs watching a train wreck?

rickyricardo on August 31, 2011 at 2:56 PM

Quotes from an article that aren’t 100% pro-Palin are to the Palinistas what a Mohammed cartoon is to Middle East Muslims.

Hollowpoint on August 31, 2011 at 1:05 PM

Exactly.

You-Eh-Vee on August 31, 2011 at 2:57 PM

Sorry to interrupt the homosexual slurs and marriage insults, entertaining as they may be, but:

I still have not figured out from reading all of this if both Palin and O’Donnell are speaking at this event.

Anyone know?

MississippiMom on August 31, 2011 at 3:01 PM

ha ha…you don’t get out much do ya?

bridgetown on August 31, 2011 at 2:56 PM

Says the person behind the computer screen.

Oh, the irony.

Female is sex, feminine is gender.

Akzed on August 31, 2011 at 3:03 PM

Exactly.

You-Eh-Vee on August 31, 2011 at 2:57 PM

Really? Please list the ways Palin supporters are like Muslims outraged at Mohammed cartoons.

BTW, there have been Palin cartoons.

BruthaMan on August 31, 2011 at 2:48 PM

Nope. They’re just the kind of people who, if you don’t revere their candidate, or agree with them on one issue, they’ll never forgive you.

MadisonConservative on August 31, 2011 at 3:09 PM

Incredibly applicable to the nitwit twins here.

Schadenfreude on August 31, 2011 at 2:48 PM

Dude…would that it were so. However, given the propensity for people here to eat their hosts, or each other, alive over minor disagreements…it would appear that babble is the core of political discourse in the modern era.

MadisonConservative on August 31, 2011 at 3:13 PM

Hollowpoint on August 31, 2011 at 1:05 PM

What exactly are you implying here? At best that’s offensive.

MadisonConservative on August 31, 2011 at 3:11 PM

I don’t know whom you mean by that, but do you share Bridgetown’s ignorance as to how one’s girlfriend must be a female, even if she isn’t very feminine?

Akzed on August 31, 2011 at 3:18 PM

Nope. They’re just the kind of people who, if you don’t revere their candidate, or agree with them on one issue, they’ll never forgive you.

MadisonConservative on August 31, 2011 at 3:09 PM

You’re the kind of person who, if criticized, blows a tonsil and then plays victim.

Grow up and sack up, man!

Own your words!
