What is it with this lady? bad people around her?

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.

  • Once is an accident. Twice might be miscommunication. But four times? Smacks of poor management by her staff. She'll find herslef kicked off the speaker circuit if things don't improve rapidly...no one will trust her.

  • You mean to tell me she quit again? I wish I could pretend to be shocked--but let's face it, it is what she does best!

    Well, her only in the respect that she chose her staff. But I doubt she puts her own calendar together...when you get to this level you have your "people" do it.

  • Who cares what an incompetent political HAS-BEEN is doing (or not doing). She's irrelevant, even to the people in her own state.

  • The event planner has to take some of the blame. I spent several years as event planner for different OWC/OSC's. I got all of my confirmations in writing. I also spoke with the "people" several times leading up to the event. I never had a no show. My group was a "no show" once though. A great deal of time and effort had gone into planning a wine tasting/party at a vineyard, we even had bottles with special labels for us. The date of the event...9/12/01. It was an absolutely understandable cancellation considering we were military and in NJ.
