Monday News: Trouble in (Republican) Paradise.

It looks like things are not going as swimmingly as I thought with the GOP. Sarah Palin has not received her invitation to the GOP’s nomination assembly in Tampa and the tea party people do not appreciate it. That has to stink to go from Vice Presidential nominee to being uninvited. On one hand, Sarah Palin has not been a big fan of the presumptive nominee, but on the other, she does have influence and the race is still very close.

Um, ok politics.

GOP Senate nominee Sharron Angle spoke to a group of students at Las Vegas’ Rancho High School. Between the change I can believe in from the dems and this, I’m going to keep my voter registration in the independent column. For real.

So that’s what we want is a secure and sovereign nation and, you know, I don’t know that all of you are Latino. Some of you look a little more Asian to me. I don’t know that. [Note: it’s the Hispanic Student Union. The whole room is Hispanic teenagers.] What we know, what we know about ourselves is that we are a melting pot in this country. My grandchildren are evidence of that. I’m evidence of that. I’ve been called the first Asian legislator* in our Nevada State Assembly.

*Angle is not Asian, but recently disclosed that a reporter once told her she looked Asian. Uh huh.
