Sarah Palin won't be at a Phoenix Tea Party conference at the end of the month, but that hasn’t stopped the left from conjuring up her supposed appearance at the American Policy Summit February 25-27. Leftist magazine Mother Jones not only claims there are "rumors" that Gov. Palin will show there, but also that she will announce that she's running for president at the event:
Mother Jones reports that Florida Tea Party Patriots coordinator Everett Wilkinson wrote Thursday on his website: “I just heard a rumor that Sarah Palin is going to make a surprise visit and announcement.”Related: Mother Jones Attacks Tea Party Patriots
Mother Jones concluded that the rumor is most likely a ploy to increase attendance and advertising for the event.
Mark Meckler, co-founder and national coordinator of the Tea Party Patriots, told The Daily Caller that Sarah Palin is not attending the conference.
“Sarah Palin is not appearing at the American Policy Summit,” Meckler told TheDC, “The good news is that the journalistic standards at Mother Jones remain consistent. LOL.”
