Alright, everybody. Calm down. Just calm down!
Crisis averted. Partial-term Gov. Sarah Palin — who was maybe not going to show up at a Tea Party event this weekend because a certain suddenly-unpopular abstinence witch might end up standing too close to her — has agreed to show up at the event that she at which had previously agreed to show up…
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is set to appear at a tea party rally in Iowa Saturday, a source close to Palin told CNN.
O'Donnell was, for the second time in 48 hours, removed from the program Wednesday afternoon. Ken Crow, one of the rally organizers, told the Des Moines Register that he dis-invited O'Donnell at the Palin camp's request.
You see? That wasn't that hard was it? All they had to do was make sure that Christine O'Donnell not get any of her stink of failure anywhere near Sarah Palin's hair, and everything was sorted out fine…
The source told CNN that O'Donnell aides lied to organizers and said Palin had been communicating via text message with O'Donnell about the rally.
"The governor hasn't spoken to her in a year," the Palin source said of O'Donnell…
An aide to O'Donnell disputed that people close to her mischaracterized her relationship with Palin to the Iowa rally organizers and asserted they did not lie about the extent of conversations between the two late Wednesday.
Hmmm… So, Palin's people say that O'Donnell's people are lying, and O'Donnell's people say that Palin's people are lying. Both of these women are so well-versed in lying that it's hard to suss out who's actually doing the lying here. I'm inclined to throw my hands up and say they're both lying, but that's not a logistically sound argument. So, we're gonna have to use some other means of finding the truth.
Let's see: Sarah Palin makes headlines when she walks down her driveway to get the mail, and Christine O'Donnell's new book sold fewer copies than your average literary magazine.
So… O'Donnell's lying.
