Sarah Palin Not Speaking At Republican Convention

After whether or not she would appear in Tampa later this month, Sarah Palin made it official, via Gretawire (C4P).

“…Everything I said at the 2008 convention about then-candidate Obama still stands today, and in fact the predictions made about the very unqualified and inexperienced Community Organizer’s plans to “fundamentally transform” our country are unfortunately coming true. This year is a good opportunity for other voices to speak at the convention and I’m excited to hear them. As I’ve repeatedly said, I support Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan in their efforts to replace President Obama at the ballot box, and I intend to focus on grassroots efforts to rally Independents and the GOP base to elect Senate and House members so a wise Congress is ready to work with our new President to get our country back on the right path. This is imperative."

Personally, I think there's more to it than this. My theory is that she was given just a few minutes to speak at 11 am on the second day, when she, as the 2008 vice presidential candidate who was the only spark to that ticket, should have been given a prime time spot. John McLame as one of the first speakers? Give me a break! Sarah Palin is being punished because she has had the courage to call out the corrupt in the GOP, and the Good Ole Boys don't like that.

I notice Newt isn't speaking either, or hasn't been invited. This is a big mistake by Rinse Preebus (I know, I'm misspelling it on purpose).

Then again, everyone knew she'd outshine the GOP nominee. As one commenter noted on FreeRepublic.

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

Recall too, how Sarah Palin electrified and unified CPAC 2012.

No. She wasn't even invited. The Romney and Bush people who control the convention figure that they've got the Conservatives with the Ryan pick so they can kick Palin to the curb.

Trust me on this. She wasn't even offered 11 minutes at 3 am in the morning. They didn't want her around. Romney and his people despise Palin. So do the Bushies.

This is a mistake. Palin will put her efforts into downticket races, since Romney doesn't want her around.

Reince Preibus had nothing to do with this. He's the order taker for Romney and the Bushes.

Actually, Jimi Hendrix did open for the Monkees in 1967 so that might not be the best comparison!

Yep, the GOP thinks they have won this election.
