Rush will still be there, but its not really grassroots Woodstock anymore without her. Now, because of the letdown, its more like grassroots Altamont: Plenty of good acts and one great one to close the show, but an angry, angry crowd nonetheless. The opening-day headliner for the annual CPAC conservative convention February 26-28, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, has pulled out, citing state business in Juneau. Were obviously disappointed, said a CPAC official. A spokesman for the three-day confab, organized by the American Conservative Union Foundation and others, said that Palin, the popular former vice presidential nominee, had indicated she would be able to attend but cited duties of governing in bowing out. Instead, she will send in a taped message. The Democrats up there have been grumbling about her being out of state so much. Maybe she figured she could either get away for the Alfalfa Dinner or CPAC but not both and had to make a hard choice. Exit question: Huckabee to replace her? The message, at least, will be similar. And hes anti-stimulus!
Governor Sarah Palin has a volcano to worry about back home...
Something’s up in Alaska with the Murkowski Republicans and Rats and she has to stay home to keep a close eye on them.
Yeah I knew it would happen too. She backed out last year when she was invited too, I think with all the backlash of her going to Washington to begin with she didn’t want anymore heat. Disappointing but I understand
Palin out and Huckleberry in?
Now THAT’s a double-whammy!
Maybe Sarah just doesn’t want to peak too soon...
Dems complaining that she isn’t there much, I seem to remember a certain enemy of this country under the name of phony empty suit obama who was hardly there voting for important issues
sick to death of the hypocrisy of the left and now I see HUFFINGTON POST is at the white house asking questions
I don’t think I have ever been this angry
The way she was mistreated by some Republicans, I don’t blame her.
It’s no doubt because of Mt. Redoubt. Pray for Alaska that nothing bad happens.
If the volcano erupts in Alaska she has to be in state.
Good thing I didn’t book.
You’re absolutely right! I’d forgotten about the volcano...
Could she make a satellite appearance?
Schmuckelberry replaces Palin???
That’s like having a date to the prom with a supermodel, and finding out she cancelled and instead, you get the swarmy school wallflower with the used car salesman smile. Yuk!
The time difference would make it tough.
Maybe McCain can fill in for her. ;^)
A male one to boot.
Huck would prolly happily dress up in a prom dress in exchange for a few votes (not a visual one cares to reflect on, I know ... ).
