Organizers of an Anchorage event that has been billing Sarah Palin for weeks as a star speaker were left scrambling Wednesday after learning that the former governor won't be there for tonight's event and claims to have never been asked.
It would be at least the fourth time in recent months that an anticipated Palin speech has fallen through after Palin and her camp disputed they had ever confirmed it. That includes the brouhaha over whether she'd speak at the annual congressional Republican fundraising dinner in Washington, D.C., this summer.
Democrats can only hope that she runs for the White House in 2012. Her doing so will do more to further their chances for 4 mores years than just about any other reason and the fact that the right wing holds her in such high regard is a big reason why they are where they are now. Now if they can just further the WorldnetDaily crowd's unexplainable love affair with Chuck Norris, the Democrats could have their ultimate 2012 GOP dream ticket, Palin/Norris.
