I don't post a comment of the week every week, but this comment stands out because it is from former mayor and school board member Greg Stratton defending the local Republican club and blaming Sarah Palin's staff for the confusion over the event at The Reagan Library she didn't attend:
This comment came from former Mayor and former School Board Member Greg Stratton:
This is not the fault of the Simi Valley Republican Women. They have been 'stood up'. And worse, Palin's staff is not taking responsibility. Yes, elected officials do sometimes have to cancel, so all acceptances have some exit words attached. Peggy Sadler knows how that works. Palin's people know that too, and acted very unprofessionally when they used that out to claim she had never accepted. Hogwash.
Palin was on national TV for a week when she quit, and the reporters continuously spoke about the event at the Reagan Library. No denial at that time. Now all of a sudden they never were planning to be there?
Perhaps Sarah or her staff didn't understand the difference between the a Republican Women event at the Reagan Library and the Reagan Foundation. This event obviously wasn't important enough for her, so she finked out.
BTW, the 4th was the last day for refunds. Don't stiff the caterer, he has to order food on the 5th.
I think it is great that a Greg stands up for the local club, even though they won't state publically is Sarah Palin's staff really did send a request several weeks before the event asking for her name to be removed.
I trust the local club more than the former governor.
