Politico/NBC Debate Shoved / Open Thread

On March 8 we reported on Governor Palin’s message to Politico: Take their liberal biased debate and shove it. It didn’t take too long. A mere three weeks later that debate has in fact been shoved.

The Blaze reports

The first GOP presidential debate set for early May has been canceled due to lack of interest…from candidates.

The Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation announced that it’s moving its “Reagan Centennial GOP Presidential Primary Candidates Debate” from May 2 to Sept. 14, 2011. The reason? Not enough big names have declared their candidacy, and therefore the foundation is struggling to secure participation.

Dan Riehl: To Jim Geraghty And The Other Beltway Hypocrites On Sarah Palin

I don’t know if this demonstrates how truly stupid are our Beltway bois who like to dress up as conservatives, or how deranged they are when it comes to Sarah Palin. And, yes, that goes for Jimbo at NRO, nice guy, or not. What’s utterly ridiculous is Geraghty’s and other’s takes on this. These man-kids would do better to work out their angst over Palin on a poster of her, perhaps, as opposed to trying to work out their issues with an attractive conservative woman in the light of day. It can get a bit unsightly, don’t you think? I do. Isn’t there an empty storeroom at Heritage, or somewhere, you guys could meet up in for these irregular circle jerks of yours?

Mark Levin:  No, my friend, I won’t be addressing it.  I think you said all that needs to be said.
