If SHE's coming to your party, I'm not!

In a page taken right out of high school, Hillary Clinton has reneged on her promise to appear at a September 22 protest of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's appearance at the United Nations.  Why?  Because the protest's organizers also invited Sarah Palin to appear.

Hillary's stated reasons seem shallow.  As her spokesman put it, Palin's "attendance was news to us, and this was never billed to us as a partisan political event . . . Senator Clinton will therefore not be attending."

Partisan?!  How is it partisan if it features Democrat Clinton and Republican Palin?  In reality, of course, the event isn't partisan at all.  But to the Clintons, apparently, any appearance by a Republican in an election year is, by definition, partisan.

Ahmadinejad should be something Republicans and Democrats can agree on.  But Clinton is so upset by the mere presence of Palin - the new girl - that she's decided to stay home and pout.

Very mature, Hillary.

Guess she didn't want a repeat of the SNL skit last Saturday.
