Where's Sarah?

The Queen of Iquitarod has missed another speaking engagement.
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.

You'd think she would have shown up. After all, it was to promote a measure close to her, um, heart -- forcing pregnant teens to tell their parents if they planned on getting an abortion.
Alaska Family Council President Jim Minnery said it was news to him when a reporter told him that Stapleton was saying Palin had no knowledge of the speech, which his group has been promoting. He said organizers have been talking to Palin "contacts" for weeks about it.

The only commenter so far at the link speculates that perhaps the fee wasn't high enough for her. Also.

Uh-ho. Is it getting closer to paper slippers and padded room time for Sa-wah?

"fourth time in recent months"?? Can that be attributed to personel agendas conflicting with public asperiations or should she retire whoever operates as her 'contacts'? Did she attend the Lisa Raitt school of picking assassitants?

Whatever the reason the one time candidate for VP of the US and possible candidate for numero unio in 2012 is doing her case no good at all.
