Sarah Palin Still Waiting On Her Convention Invite

Sarah Paline RNC

Sarah Palin has yet to receive an invitation to speak at or even attend the Republican National Convention in Tampa this August and, from the silence The Daily Beast received when they asked the Romney Campaign about the issue, it seems she may not receive an invite at all.

The Daily Best reports that Palin spoke to them about the issue through email, writing:

“What can I say? I’m sure I’m not the only one accepting consequences for calling out both sides of the aisle for spending too much money, putting us on the road to bankruptcy, and engaging in crony capitalism.

Sarah Palin went on to say:

In accepting those consequences…one must remember this isn’t Sadie Hawkins and you don’t invite yourself and a date to the Big Dance.”

According to The New York Daily News, the magazine received no response when asking Mitt Romney’s campaign about Palin’s role in the upcoming RNC. One adviser with the campaign did indicate that she may be banned from speaking at the convention under her contract with FOX News. Palin, however, denied that, saying:

“It’s true I’m prohibited from doing some things…but this is the first I’ve heard anyone suggest that as an excuse, er, reason to stay away from engaging in the presidential race. I’m quite confident Fox’s top brass would never strip anyone of their First Amendment rights in this regard.”

CBS News notes that Palin may be jumping the gun in saying she won’t be invited to the Republican National Convention, as, while Rick Santorum has been assured a speaking spot, he has yet to receive his invitation. Also, Andrea Saul, a spokesperson for the Romney campaign, has said that “no invitations have gone out yet” as far as she knows.

Do you think that Sarah Palin will receive an invite to the Republican National Convention?

    I think that is a mistake not to invite Sarah to the convention, She has a large following, I for one admire her Patriotism.

    She shouldn't be, she sure wouldn't be any help to them, But I sure hope they do let her come and SPEAK!

    Sarah is the face & voice of many conservatives, she should not be minimized. She is not a GOP insider, which is why Romney & the good ol' boys distance them selves from her.

    Yes I say let her come and speak so there will be a few laughs @ that convention and a whole lot of head shaking people asking "Why the hell did they let her in???" lmaooooo

    Sarah's name should be deleted from history as she is/was an embarrassment to women, the GOP and humanity. I would rather hear Cookie Monster speak than her.

    Let's hope not…no, go ahead and invite her to speak – she can only help the Democrats win a second term!

    Just because she isn't an "insider" doesn't make her as great as her fans say. Her entire image is based on saying whatever is trending on the right and then not having the understanding needed to take those concepts to the next level. I think she tanked McCain when she was picked to be VP. If she has been marginalized by the GOP, I'm not shocked.

    that's right, it doesn't pay to be a politician. much more lucrative to be a speaker and author and leaves more time to raise the kids, when you don't have to put the state first!

    Since Palin came on the scene, I've have never ever seen such catty, jealous women. Thats the only thing I can think of, because she's got it all together, a great Patriot and runs rings around most of them especially the men.

    From what I've seen, a lot of hardcore conservatives would assume a certain ignorance simply because those two are Democrats. A comment comparing her to other conservatives would be more likely to put her in perspective.
