Palin/O’Donnell Event Descends Into Total Chaos

I love this synopsis from one of the great comments over at  The Regulator:

Is anyone surprised by this?

Okay, so Palin was invited, then Christine O’Donnell. Then O’Donnell was uninvited and invited again. Now Palin has uninvited herself. O’Donnell has been uninvited. They’re trying to woo Sarah back. I think.

I love those Tea Baggers….

Update, 12:57 PM: According to NBC, Tea Party of America president Ken Crow said “I had to cancel O’Donnell,” and is trying to lure Palin back to the event.

First Sarah Palin was scheduled to attend the Tea Party of America’s Iowa rally this weekend. Then Christine O’Donnell was invited. Then Christine O’Donnell was uninvited. Then she was re-invited. Now Palin is out. Maybe.

Easy to follow, right? According to the Wall Street Journal, Palin will not share the stage with O’Donnell, who she famously endorsed in 2010, because the ex-governor is sick of “continual lying” by the event’s organizers. But there’s still confusion over what’s going on: Real Clear Politics‘ Scott Conroy disputed the report on Twitter, saying sources had told him the event was only “on hold,” while a Tea Party of America official told reporter Shushanna Walshe the event was still a go after a talk with Palin.

It’s easy to see where Palin might get a negative impression of the organizers, however. After initially asking O’Donnell to join the event, Tea Party of America’s top officials split over their reasons for rescinding O’Donnell’s initial invite, with president Ken Crow citing scheduling problems and co-founder Charles Gruschow citing widespread disdain for the former Senate candidate among Tea Party activists. They quickly brought her back into the fold, however, and Crow said they had“panicked” initially in dropping her.

Palin, who has yet to rule out a presidential bid, will still visit Iowa this weekend for other events.

  1. You two posters wouldn’t know good policy or relevancy if it hit you in the forehead. As for Kstreet, I am fairly sure you have never met either of these women in person; yet somehow you ‘know’ them. You are symptomatic of what is wrong with much of America. Don: the ‘nonsense’ you speak of; show us..please! Is it their stance on eliminating waste that bothers you? Or is it that we ought to be self sufficient on our oil that ruffles your feathers?


    1. Yurkiddinme, thank you for your comment. No, I have never met either Palin or O’Donnell, but like millions of Americans, I have had to endure hours upon hours of reporting about them via every news outlet out there. I’ve also seen poll after poll regarding the American People’s like or dislike of either woman.

      The media has thrown everything they can at us about these women via the 2008 campaign season, the 2010 campaign season and beyond. But somehow you suggest that if I don’t know them personally, I shouldn’t comment by reporting on them on my blog? That’s not making much sense to me.

      Could it be that you are suggesting that I don’t exercise my right to free speech? That’s not a good idea in a free Republic. You’re not one of those advocating the demise of Democracy, are you?

      At any rate, once again, thanks for your comment.


  2. It seems that’s a good policy, Don. However, I just love blogging about them so whomever is reading this blog gets to look at the “dark side” version of “Samantha” and “Endora”.
