Palin pulls a McCain

As much as this author would prefer to let the Governor of the great state of Alaska to fall into obscurity, this was simply too funny. Sarah Palin was invited to the US House Republicans' annual winter retreat to give what they hoped would be a morale-boosting speech. She declined, citing that she simply had too much pressing state business in Alaska to deal with.

So far, so good. So where was Sarah Palin this weekend?

Washington, D.C. - attending the super-elite Alfalfa dinner.

Republican reviews were mixed:
"She lied to us," said a Republican at the retreat.

Asked about Palin's no-show, House Republican leader John Boehner shrugged. "Whatever," Boehner said.
