If political support were a relationship, Sarah Palin would be a wife beater.
Conservatives rallied around her during last year's presidential election, turning her into a demigod. Despite all the love and attention, Palin continues to let them down.
The Alaska Family Council held an event this evening to bolster support for their latest ballot initiative, which supports a law demanding parents be told if their dirty, sexually active child goes to get an abortion. And, as far as they were concerned, Palin had agreed to headline their event. They were twice told she would attend and were absolutely vibrating with anticipation:
- We look forward to Governor Palin honoring her commitment to attend, and we appreciate her public support of our effort to pass this important voter initiative to protect the rights of parents and the health of teenage girls.

Sarah Palin cancels again on a speech she claims she was never invited to
OOPS: Mistakes on political donations blamed on software
Crawford said SarahPAC uses election software, similar to TurboTax for income taxes, that walks aides through required disclosures. When they filed the mid-year report to the FEC, no violations were noted, so they thought they had done it correctly.
The FEC wants more information
Palin: The software made me do it.
We still need to find the reason that Palin so abruptly resigned, late on a Friday, before a holiday weekend, without preparing a well-conceived statement. It was far too quick a decision to have been done for benign personal reasons.

Alaskans for Parental Rights "We look forward to Governor Palin honoring her commitment to attend"
Meg "this is the first we have ever heard of a speech."
