Palin Out, Bachmann in as Keynote for CPAC Conference

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin declined, for the third year in a row, the Conservative Political Action Conference’s (CPAC) invitation to be keynote speaker at their annual conference next week, which will take place February 10-12, 2011, at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel in Washington DC. Palin stated, as she has before, “February is our busiest winter month and with all the prior obligations and outside travel already scheduled for the month I had to forgo some of the opportunities in the Lower 48.” [….]

With Palin out, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) is confirmed to deliver the keynote address on Thursday morning. It will be interesting to hear what Bachmann will say, given her rather odd grasp of basic American history and equally odd ideas about her fellow members of Congress who may be “un-American.”

The line up of speakers includes some of the GOP’s unofficial / potential 2012 candidate list:

  • Rep. Michele Bachmann (MN)
  • Fmr. Speaker Newt Gingrich
  • Fmr. Sen. Rick Santorum (PA)
  • Fmr. Gov. Mitt Romney (MA)
  • Sen. John Thune (SD)
  • Fmr. Gov. Tim Pawlenty (MN)
  • Rep. Ron Paul (TX)
  • Gov. Rick Perry (TX) y
  • Herman Cain
  • Gov. Mitch Daniels (IN) –
  • Gov. Haley Barbour (MS)
