    Oh, man. This stuff writes itself, I tell ya!

    http://www.politico.com/blogs/scorecard/0309/Palin_headlining_GOP_fundraising_dinner.html#comments

    “On behalf of Congressional Republicans, it is a pleasure to announce one of the brightest rising stars in the Republican Party, Sarah Palin, will deliver the keynote address at this year’s Senate-House dinner,” said NRCC chairman Pete Sessions.

    NRSC chairman John Cornyn added that she was a “breath of fresh air from the business-as-usual crowd in Washington” in a joint release.

    Ben Smith's Blog: Palin "like, 'no'" to GOP dinner - POLITICO.com

    The two Republican congressional committees yesterday announced that Sarah Palin would speak at a big June joint fundraising dinner.

    The only problem: Nobody seems to have told Palin.

    ........McAllister said Palin asked him why The Associated Press was reporting that she was going to do this.
    "I pointed out the (National Republican Senatorial Committee) press release and she was like, no," he said.

    They're out of power right now, this is the time for them to find a leader, for one to emerge - not for one to be annointed.

    GOP is on it's way out, with a libertarian party moving into to take it's place. The People are ready for the libertarian message, which is more core GOP than the GOP.

    It was the shambles that the dems were in, that allowed Obama to move to the front of the line so easily. This is what's going on with the republicans right now. They're leaderless, and will be for while.

    The way things are going in DC right now, it seems the country is leaderless, not just the republican party. I watched some TV last night, and it's funny to see republicans talk about how fiscally insane, or disastrous the current management is (which it is mind you), when they were terrible themselves. Where are we headed is what I want to know. The last team poured fuel onto the fire as I liked to say, and the new team seems to be pouring napalm. What happens in 2010 if things are brutal in this country? Do people vote in the old cast of retahds, to replace the current cast? It's like hiring Norv Turner, or Joe Bugal, over, and over, and over again, and expecting a winning season. :mad:

    The Libertarian party never gets anywhere. I'll believe what you said when I see it. Even half Republican/half Libertarians like Ron Paul get all their support on message boards but never at the ballot box.

    The proof is in the pudding. It's a fact that during our History, parties have come and gone, and it's never overnight. Ron Paul actually did place very well in a couple states, more than most would have ever thought.

    It's a start, no party disappears overnight, or even over 10 years...

    Admittedly 2008 was a little better for the (L)s than before :

    1988 : 431,750
    1992 : 290,087
    1996 : 485,798
    2000 : 384,431
    2004 : 397,265
    2008 : 523,686

    But it's all the same order of magnitude. Until there's another zero on the end, they aren't making much progress. I'm not against you, I voted (L) in 1996 and 2004.

    What fraction of the vote compared to the 1992 and 1996 Whathisface the Crew-Cut Texan Billionaire did Ron Paul get?

    Sorry, electorally, they are still playing Class C ball.

    I think you ought to look at Ron Paul's Republican Primary numbers before you look at L's numbers thins past year.

    RP was an L running with an R... Many L's turned against the L party due to who they elected to run for the L's... Mr. Barr.

    I think the evidence you need is the Cincinatti Tea Party, Orlando just had one too...

    The idea of these Tea Parties were a product of the Ron Paul campaign...
