There's a convention of wealthy white conservatives about to crank up down in the Sunshine State, and the Queen of Wasilla has been a topic of conversation for those who like to keep up with speaking slots at those conventions. Sarah rented out a space near the convention center in Tampa during the week of the GOP coronation of King Mitt, and it was widely rumored she was either going to be allowed time on stage in front of the cameras or she would hold her own attention-grabbing event across town.
It looks as if the powers that be in the Republican Party have finally had enough of Blunderwoman's egomania, because she's been informed that she won't be speaking at this year's convention. Now, if the HBO film "Game Change" is accurate (and by all accounts it is), telling Sarah she can't give a speech in front of millions of viewers is becoming a habit for the folks in charge of the Republican Party. Sarah allegedly insisted that she be allowed to make her own Vice Presidential concession speech after the landslide loss in '08, only to be told (repeatedly) that veep candidates don't make speeches traditionally reserved for presidential candidates after a crushing defeat. She didn't handle the news well. Those in the know say she has problems with rejection that border on psychotic. I doubt she's all that thrilled to find out her little slice of reality show talent won't be on display in Tampa.
But for the record, she's saying all the right things about this snub.
According to an article in the Washington Post, Sarah had this to say:
“This year is a good opportunity for other voices to speak at the convention and I’m excited to hear them,” she said in a statement to Fox News’s Greta van Susteren.
Oh, right. Sarah's excited to hear "other voices" speak at the convention. Something tells me the voices Sarah hears when she isn't drowning them out with her own are those that rattle around between her ears at night when the house is silent. Those are the voices that tell her she's the center of the known universe, an indispensable force of political power that simply must be heard, now and always.
I'd love to have been a fly on the igloo wall when she got the news from the RNC. Wanna bet she smiled and nodded as it was explained to her on the phone? Think for a minute she was all magnanimous and charitable about giving other voices a chance to be heard?
Bullshit... It's far more likely she stayed completely true to her character and threw a Def Com Level Four shit fit. Wanna know why First Dude Todd stays on a snowmobile as much as he does? He's less likely to be hit with a flying dinner plate if he's out in the woods...
