>> Sarah speaking at Romney’s convention would be like Led Zeppelin opening for the Monkees.

> Jimi Hendrix did open for the Monkees, more than once. It wasn't pretty.

Consider a difference, and a similarity:

I think Palin is wise to avoid that pre-programmed trained-animal circus. It will have no new interest, no surprises, no lift beyond the week in which it ends. It's merely a ribbon-cutting ceremony. I don't plan to watch -- if I need to puke, I'd rather stick my finger down my throat. It's quicker and less demeaning.

Former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin will not speak at the Republican nominating convention in Tampa later this month>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

She does not deserve to speak. Her nation called her and she refused. And so she must bear the ignominy of being a “has been.” This is right where the GOP planned to put her, and so our one saviour no longer exists.

Palins refusal to run for the GOP presidential nomination will later be seen as the mistake that ruined her political career.

The GOP still is so afraid of Palin that they will NOT allow her to speak, for fear that she could unseat Romney from the floor of the convention.

The third party option has just become REAL. And NECESSARY!
(Conservatives are to be USED and ABUSED, yet again.)

EFF the GOP. I hope it dies after losing the Nov. presidential election. The Tea Party will take up the banner of constitutional conservatism and take our nation back.

There has ALWAYS been bad blood between mitt and anyone that threatens his absolute power. I expect Sarah to do exactly as she said she will do. Unlike mitt... she is honest and forthright. I trust her... mitt... not so much.

We are seeing the dying days of the gop... at least in it present form. It will take time but they will change or go the way of the WHIG party.

Well I was speaking strictly on Gov Palin, nothing to stop Paul from saying to Mitt (during peanut butter/honey sandwich), hey Mitt I really feel bad about my good friend Sarah being excluded from the convention, are you sure that`s a good idea?

He could say that

Yes, he could do that... we will never know because mitt does not want her to speak.

“I think Palin is wise to avoid that pre-programmed trained-animal circus. It will have no new interest, no surprises, no lift beyond the week in which it ends. It’s merely a ribbon-cutting ceremony.”

That is what political conventions (at least of the demopublican persuasion) have become. Infomercials. As scripted as the WWE. And much like the WWE, the winner is known well in advance.

Good call. We don’t need reality TV celebrity family personalities speaking at the Convention. We need serious policy advocates. Thank you RNCC.

I'm thinking she will be a Cabinet figure...maybe Interior (do we still have Interior). Wonder who will be Sec. of State...
