Palin Won’t Speak at CPAC

This was murky earlier today, when I wrote about the size of Sarah Palin’s fee for speaking at the Tea Party Convention, but it’s been confirmed. The former governor of Alaska will not attend or speak at the 2010 Conservative Political Action Conference. That’s according to Lisa De Pasquale, director of the annual event.

Have you bothered to do any Investigative Journalism reporting to ascertain which of these two Conventions that God actually wants exGov Mother Sarah to address?

The fact that the money trail coincides with the exGov Mother Sarah Palin's Holy Night Time Vision trail is purely coincidental.

What is NOT coincidental is CPAC's clear and obvious anti-Christian agenda.

Mr hipple
I recently communicated (thru intermediaries, natch) with Howard Ahmanson Jr, regarding our common disappointment over your recent award in the Dominionism subcategory. I don't care to rehash just how controversial your “victory” was; it is still a point of contention among many in my circle.
Anyway, the fact that I have won the Rushdooney-blogmaster statuette (TWO years consecutively) seems to mean nothing to you—-I think thou dost ignoreth too much

Really?

Oh, I get it. When you say “coicidental,” it's what the rest of us mean when we say “obvious.” Got it.

Yeah, this RPTH guy is way out there. He's probably even more conservative than Stephen Colbert and Glenn Beck!

Personally, I applaud Mrs. Palin's principled decision to reject the growing extremism in her party and boycott CPAC, obviously a response to their decision to allow the John Birch Society to co-sponsor the event. This is just an example of the Governor's staunch commitment to maintaining the GOP, the party of Lincoln, as an inclusive and moderate “big-tent” political party. Huzzah!

C-PAC has lost it's sheen, now they are banning gays. The promoter of that deal is an ass. They chose Palin as Conservative of the Year for 2008, then started attacking her! Screw 'em!

The Tea Party Convention will be a far more productive deal.

If you live near Houston, Texas, Texas for Sarah Palin has this:

Sarah Palin is scheduled to join the Get Motivated! Business Seminar series for the event in Houston, Monday, February 8. She will be among friends, as Rudy Giuliani and Terry Bradshaw are also scheduled to speak, and a foe, as Colin Powell will be there too.

Gov. Palin will address the following topics:

• How to Successfully Manage and Balance Your Personal and Professional Priorities

• How to Overcome Obstacles with Creative Solutions

• The Secrets to Effective Decision-Making

• How to Have Grace Under Fire

• How to Become a Person of Influence

We contacted Get Motivated! and were assured that Sarah Palin was booked through her agents, the Washington Speakers Bureau. For “security reasons” the event people would not tell us what time of day the governor is scheduled to speak.

We figure it will have to be fairly close to the 8:00 AM (Texas Time) start of the seminar, since Gov. Palin is also scheduled for afternoon and evening (California Time) speeches the same day at a logging conference in Redding, CA.

Josh Painter at Texas for Sarah Palin has more details and a link to Get Motivated!

Lou Hotz and Zig Ziegler two HUGE Palin fans are also speaking at this event.

Texans are paying Sarah Palin to tell them how to Successfully Manage and Balance Your Personal and Professional Priorities.
And how to Overcome Obstacles with Creative Solutions.
And tell them the Secrets to Effective Decision-Making.
And tell them how to Have Grace Under Fire.
And tell them how to Become a Person of Influence.

But have no idea when she will speak.
Shrewd group, these Texans.

You must be a Yankee or a liberal or both, because you are certainly not smart enough to actually comprehend what you read!

***”For “security reasons” the event people would not tell us what time of day the governor is scheduled to speak”*****

The event promoters know EXACTLY what time she will speak, and since thousands of people waited out in freezing weather all across the country, for as long as 36 six hours just to get a book signed, I doubt anyone actually cares WHEN she is going to speak, because they will be there anyway!

Unfortunately, hateful liberals have been sending her death threats. They know she can't be beat any other way, so they'll try to do to her what they did to another Republican icon, Dr Martin Luther King.

Thankfully, she has better security.

Liberals are sick puppies.

Like this?

“Angry crowd shouts at Sarah Palin book signing tour after Palin quits and refuses to sign books for around 300 families that spent about 3+ hours getting a wristband and another 3+ hours waiting in line to get the Palin book signed. At this Borders bookstore it was announced that 1,000 individuals would be given wristbands and could get two books signed each. By the time Sarah Palin quit, there were still about 300 individuals and there families who did not get even one book signed.”

Son, I expect my words to be taken face value. You managed to miss most points, an admirable feat since I used your own words. I am pleased you agree folks such as yourself (unless you are the promoter) have no idea when VP-nominee Palin will appear, but embarrassed for your tactic of setting up a straw man you could slay, labeling me to suit your story. In an effort to aid your understanding, I will rephrase.

A politician who:
resigned from office is speaking about overcoming obstacles.
left a city with a multi-million dollar debt is revealing the secrets of effective decision-making.
blames others for her job performance and record will address how to have grace under fire.
has a ghost-written hagiography (I apologize for the big word) will explain how to become a person of influence.

As for her 'security', the lady has been all over the country on a book tour with no security fears. The reasons for secrecy are more likely her inability to keep a promised schedule than security.

Texas is more than one region, and not all of Texas considers itself Southern. You don't strike me as Southern, but I'll speak as if you were. Mama had a word for folks that were ill-behaved or called folks names. Three words, actually. Bless your heart.

CPAC Or Not CPAC?

Picture this scene:

SP: So, Meg, is there any other business we need to discuss?

MS: Just the CPAC invitation, Governor.

SP: Okay. Kind of a shame that we weren’t able to attend the last coupla years. Now remind me, Meg, who runs the show over there at CPAC?

MS: That would be David Keene, Governor.

SP: Uh-huh. What do we know about Mr Keene, Meg?

MS: Well, if I recall correctly Governor, in an interview with Newsmax in July 2009 he’s the guy who accused you of harbouring resentment about the campaign. He said that you are a quitter, said that you bailed out, that you’ve got to be more than a “rock star”, said that you lack foundation, that you didn’t follow through as a governor, that you’d dropped the pipeline project, that you spent your time whining, that our operation isn’t well run or polished enough.

SP: Hmmm… so Mr Keene thinks I am a resentful, whining, quitter who bailed out and didn’t follow through. That about it?

MS: Yup.

SP: Doesn’t sound like much of a friend to us does he, Meg… And this guy’s invited me to speak at his conference this year, you say?

MS: Yes, Governor.

SP: Now Meg, maybe you can remind me who it was that said this,

“What you need to do is to calculate where your friends and your enemies are, who you need and what you need, and if you’re going to get your message out and you’re going to play on the big stage, those people are all going to be there, so you don’t kowtow or pussyfoot to them…”

Who was it that gave that sound advice, Meg?

MS: That would be David Keene, Governor.

SP: Let Mr Keene know that we won't be pussyfooting this year, will you please, Meg.
