What? The invitations haven’t hit the post office yet? Please don’t go there. Palin should have a central position and should have been on the speakers list for months. She, Congressman Allen West and Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann are the voices of conservative leaders, and Palin started it all, along with the TEA Party. Give Palin a platform for this one night. She deserves it. Conservatives deserve it. Surely there is room on the stage for Palin, along with Pawlenty, Daniels, Portman, Rice, and Jindal. We’re upchucking the mountains of chicken we’ve been fed. You’ve given us a lot of bun. Now give us some beef!
“What can I say?” Palin told Newsweek in an email. “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.”
“In accepting those consequences,” she added, “one must remember this isn’t Sadie Hawkins and you don’t invite yourself and a date to the Big Dance.”
The magazine said the Romney campaign did not respond to a question about Palin’s role at the convention, but one adviser associated with Team Romney indicated that she may be prohibited from speaking under her contract with FOX News.
Palin appeared dubious, however, about that reasoning.
“It’s true I’m prohibited from doing some things,” Palin told Newsweek, “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.” Source: NY Daily News
