Sarah Palin has been disinvited from a rally next week to protest Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, an event that Hillary Clinton pulled out of just a day earlier so as not to be seen alongside the Republican vice presidential candidate.
Organizers said they aren’t being partisan. They decided to bar all elected and federal officials from the rally on Monday in fear of a “media feeding frenzy.” The rally was specifically intended to protest Ahmadinejad’s presence at the United Nations.
“In order to keep the focus on Iranian threats and to ensure that this critical message not be obscured, the organizers of the rally have decided not to have any American political personalities appear,” the National Coalition to Stop Iran Now said in a statement Thursday.
So, let me get this straight--they are trying to appear strong against a madman with nukes and an itchy trigger finger. But they can't even stand up to a Feminazi in a pantsuit? Oh yeah, I'll bet Ahmedinejad is just shaking in his boots.
Showing just how vain, shallow, arrogant, and narcissistic she is, Hillary "The Pantsuit" Clinton, who was scheduled to appear at an anti-Ahmadeanijad demonstration, showed her (im)maturity level when she was informed that Republican vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin had been added to the docket. The Pantsuit promptly huffed, puffed, held her breath until she turned blue--and when she saw that no one cared, she packed up and went home (via Al-Reuters):
UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) - U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton canceled her appearance at a demonstration against the president of Iran after learning Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin will be there, a Clinton aide said on Wednesday.
A group of Jewish organizations had said both Palin and Clinton would speak at the protest near the United Nations on Monday against Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who has said Israel should be wiped off the map.
But Clinton adviser Philippe Reines said the New York senator would not be attending.
"(Palin's) attendance was news to us, and this was never billed to us as a partisan political event," he said in an e-mail.
Campaigners for Alaska Gov. Palin and Republican presidential candidate Sen. John McCain reacted swiftly to Clinton's decision.
"Governor Palin believes that the danger of a nuclear Iran is greater than party or politics," said Tracey Schmitt, a spokeswoman for the McCain-Palin campaign.
When I was a kid, we would have all said, "Pity party! 1...2...3...awwwwwwww!"
Well, let's all boo-hoo for Hillary because she would have had to share the stage with a woman who hasn't had to spend her whole life kissing up to liberal causes and riding on her husband's coattails to be successful in government, and who has more cojones that Her Hillaryness could ever dream of having--a woman who has stood up to the "Good Ol' Boy Network" and won.
So go home, Hillary. Have your little pity party. We'll be cryin' for ya.
