This is going to be a Sarah Palin rant, so if you’re not prepared for that— turn back now.
I am beyond pissed that Sarah is not speaking at the convention.
Despite what the media would have you believe, Sarah saved John McCain’s ass in 2008 and he most likely would have lost 10x worse if he had gone with Tim Pawlenty or Mitt Romney for that matter.
BUT EVEN MORE IMPORTANTLY: Do you know how many races she influenced in 2010? She helped flip the House and she helped get so many governors elected to office. I find it ironic that Nikki Haley, Susana Martinez and Mary Falin are speaking since Sarah was a HUGE reason why they were elected to begin with.
The real reason I think she’s not speaking is this—- she would honestly outshine Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan in terms of media coverage. When she spoke at CPAC (I was there) she was the BEST speaker and the crowd went wild after she spoke. She got the crowd energized more than any presidential candidate at the time (Newt, Santorum, Mitt). So, in a way, I get it. But she is a rockstar and this is just upsetting to the millions of supports she has (yes, millions.) Who makes a rockstar sit out the biggest show of the year?!
Momma Grizzly outshines everyone. Even the sun.
