The New York Times gets their hands on the speaker list for the GOP convention. Guess whose name is not on it. Update!

Courtesy of the New York Times:  

The roster of speakers obtained by The Times, and confirmed by two people with direct knowledge of the convention planning, reveals a lineup lacking many of the party’s rising stars. Instead, it features some of Mr. Trump’s eclectic collection of friends, celebrities and relatives, from his Slovenian supermodel wife to professional golfer Natalie Gulbis. 

The parade of people seems to have been selected to broaden Mr. Trump’s demographic reach. 

There are several notable women speaking. They include Pam Bondi, the Florida attorney general, who tangled on television with the CNN anchor Anderson Cooper after the Orlando, Fla., nightclub massacre; Eileen Collins, the first woman to command a space shuttle mission; Gov. Mary Fallin of Oklahoma; Senator Joni Ernst of Iowa and Mr. Trump’s wife, Melania. 

There are a few African-Americans, like Jamiel Shaw Sr., who became an outspoken advocate for tougher immigration laws after his son was killed in 2008 by an undocumented immigrant; and Darryl Glenn, who is running for Senate in Colorado. 

From sports there is Mr. Tebow, the former quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner who is known for his conservative views; Dana White, the president of the Ultimate Fighting Championship, a mixed martial arts organization; and Ms. Gulbis.

Though Rudy Giuliani, Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas, Joni Ernts, Marsha Blackburn, Ted Cruz, Rick Scott, Scott Walker, and Mitch McConnell are on the list the bigger more recognizable political names are all missing.

Instead Trump has filled out the roster with members of his own family who each have a prominent speaking slot on each of the four nights.

So you would think that Trump would be scraping the bottom of the barrel to flesh it out a little.

Well apparently there is a bottom that he is unwilling to scrape:

But what is striking, as much as who is on the list, is who is not. Several figures Mr. Trump had said he would invite to speak, like the boxing promoter Don King and Sarah Palin, the former Alaska governor, were not included.

(Just take a moment to mull over how delicious it is that Sarah Palin is mentioned in the same paragraph as boxing pimp and known murderer Don King.)

So Sarah Palin did NOT get a ticket to the big show?

Damn I am very surprised to hear that.

I was convinced that not only was she going to be there but that she would have Dakota Meyer on her arm when she arrived.

So what do we think?

Is Sarah being dissed by Trump, is this New York Times list incomplete, or is Palin simply too afraid to show up knowing that the protesters outside will be carrying guns?

Update: Well according to multiple sources it appears that Mike Pence has won the honor of standing side by side with Donald Trump as he loses this election.

Courtesy of Roll Call:

Donald Trump is planning to announce that Indiana Gov. Mike Pence is his choice for his vice presidential running mate, according to a Republican with direct knowledge of the decision.

Well arguably Pence is the best choice among the group of losers that Trump had to choose from, but he brings significant baggage with him, and in the end he will provide virtually no benefit whatsoever.

      I agree. It was just announced by Trump that the reason Palin is not coming to the convention is because, GET THIS: ALASKA IS TOOO FAR AWAY. LOL. SOOOO, drum roll: Palin for V.P. (it would fit if Trump's real goal is to get trounced by Ms. Hillary).

      Thank you for reminding me the next SarahPAC quarterly is due to drop. Last quarterly was dropped mid month on a Friday, so maybe tomorrow we'll see it, but probably next week since the news cycles will be dominated by the nonsense in Cleveland next week.

      2 things to look forward to:
      1. We will see if Trump did indeed pay her off via the PAC
      2. How little did she take in donations and how much cash does she has left on hand

    I've written on this blog a couple of times lately that I didn't think Donald Trump wanted anything to do with Palin! He had the opportunity to learn first hand that she is an idiot/inept and would bring nothing to the his campaign.

    Plus, I seriously doubt his kids liked or respected her - much less the rest of her white trash family!

    Poor, poor Sarah! She lost again!

    NOW perhaps we won't hear from her anymore as I'm sure there isn't another politician anywhere that wants a damn thing to do with her! Her books fail as do her TV series. Her medal boy isn't going to help her do anything! If he ran for office in Alaska, I think he would lose big time because he married a Palin! The Palins are not liked or respected by the majority of Alaskans!

    Looks to me like the Palins are going to have to get 'real' jobs to maintain their current life style.

      Well, that was a compactor in yesterdays post.

      In the cold parts of the lower 48 footings for houses and things like decks have to extend below the frost line to prevent frost heave damage.

      In Alaska there's permafrost. So a thick bed of gravel is often placed and compacted to act as a footing. That's probably one reason you see gravel under the deck.

      Even cable TV was talking about Sarah Palin being picked as John McCain's VP.

      It was on Rachel Maddow's show yesterday -as she was talking about the VP spot for the Trump campaign. She mentioned the deep vetting process the candidates go through! Although it was apparent Sarah Palin was not vetted well!

      Rachel noted Sarah Palin being a poor, poor choice by John McCain.

Agreement seems to be that she's just too nutty and would say stupid things, and even though it's fun to watch her "go rogue" she's the last thing Trump's campaign needs now.

      Everyone knows Ivanka/family advise team hates her. She can't dress, her voice is horrible, the medication is obvious and so much wrong with Sarah.

      There is not one thing she can do to make it appear that Trump team actually likes her now. He thought he could use her at one time, well we all saw how that went.

    The least she could have done for her son in law is arrange for him to speak.

    We already knew Trump's family adviser board would never allow Palin to speak. No way would Ivanka (her mother or husband) allow Palin any place near the convention if she opens her mouth.

    Nice try, Gryphen, but you are unsurprisingly wrong AGAIN.

    Screechy will NOT be ignored! True, she is unlikely to be a featured speaker at the convention or selected as Drumpf's VP because that is a boring, do-nothing job for LOSERS. Seriously, I don't even know what a Vice President even does!

    No. Screechy is destined to play a MUCH larger role in the looming Drumpf presidency. Perhaps less than the full co-Presidency as her hopeful fever dreams might have her believe.

    But certainly more than the federal janitorial worker portrayed by Don Knott's riveting performance as astro-wannabe Roy Fleming in 1967's classic science fiction epic The Reluctant Astronaut. Surely, she will have a job somewhere in between those two extremes.

    UPDATE!
    Ooops. I was wrong. Looks like I owe you a Drmpfian-style apology, Gryphen. (which is to say, good luck getting any apology from me. Ever.)

    The smart money now is apparently betting that Screechy WILL receive a janitorial appointment in the Drumpf administration, after all. Not actually at the White House, of course, but SOMEONE has to clean up the vomit on the floor of Air Force One and it appears our girl in Alaska - and Arizona, also too - will get the nod!

    Congrats, Screechy! Until the inevitable and sudden resignation from your new post, I'm sure you'll do a heckuva job. Make us proud!

    Donald Trump is claiming that he didn't invite Sarah Palin to the Republican convention because Alaska is too far away from Cleveland, Ohio.

    ...“She was asked,” Trump told the Washington Examiner in a phone interview on Thursday. “It’s a little bit difficult because of where she is. We love Sarah. Little bit difficult because of, you know, it’s a long ways away.”

    This may come as a newsflash to Trump, but Alaska is in the United States of America, and they have airports.

    Trump has given an excuse that wouldn’t fool a seven-year-old child. The real reason that Trump didn’t invite Palin is that the Republican Party didn’t want her there. It isn’t like the Republican Party doesn’t have access to air travel.

    The Republican Party is erasing Sarah Palin, much in the same way that they have erased both Bush presidencies. When Republicans talk about the White House, they act like George W. Bush’s two terms in office never happened.

    America can’t wait for President Trump’s first executive order where he demands that Alaska is moved closer to the rest of the country.

    Trump isn’t fooling anybody. Palin could be in Cleveland right now, and he still wouldn’t invite her. The reality is that even professional loser Donald Trump thinks that Palin is too big of a loser to be given a spot at his “winners” convention.

    Getting dissed by professional fraudster and washed up reality television star Donald Trump signals that Sarah Palin has truly hit rock bottom.

    An Oily Ball of Rage

    There was some question until last night whether the Trump operation was actually going to be able to put on a convention. Until what amounted to the last minute they'd failed to put out a list of convention speakers. But now we have a tentative list and some indication of what the program will involve. It is, as it must be, classic Trump, a tribute to him, his family, various yes-men and lickspittles and a hard doubling down on the red meat base Republican politics that got him here in the first place.

    That is great. Trump says the lower 48 are too far away. That includes Dakota. They can only do political deals in Alaska. Cool. Trump you couldn't have said it better. Too far away.
