Apparently the GOP leadership has gotten over it. Last we heard from them, they were all sniffly about the fact that Sarah Palin said she was cancelling her appearance at their winter retreat because of “pressing state business”, when she was actually right down the road at the Alfalfa Club dinner, and palling around with fundraisers. I believe the exact quote was, “She lied to us!” But, perhaps after her runner up, Bobby Jindal dropped jaws in DC and across the nation with his “epic fail” speech, rebutting Obama’s first address to Congress, they figured they’d better kiss and make up.
WASHINGTON – Gov. Sarah Palin will deliver the keynote address at a dinner sponsored by the House and Senate Republican campaign committees. Palin, the party’s 2008 nominee for vice president, will address the annual Senate-House Dinner June 8 at the Washington Convention Center.
Sen. John Cornyn of Texas, chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, called Palin one of the GOP’s most popular and recognizable faces and a proven leader who “represents a breath of fresh air from the business-as-usual crowd in Washington.”
Rep. Pete Sessions, R-Texas, chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee, praised Palin’s conservative values, achievements in Alaska and “sheer energy.”
The GOP is seeking to rebuild after losing ground in the House and Senate and losing the White House in 2008.
They’re still stuck on that “breath of fresh air” talking point. And now we can add to her list of qualifications, “sheer energy.” OK, I get it. But what are all those “achievements in Alaska” the gentleman from Texas is talking about?
