Harrisburg, PA — With Tea Party candidate Jake Towne picking up steam across the Lehigh Valley, one can’t help but wonder if Sarah Palin is snubbing Charlie Dent tonight at her appearance in Hershey. The former Alaska Governor and Republican Vice Presidential nominee is set to appear in Hershey for an event for the Pennsylvania Family Institute, but Charlie Dent is no where to be seen or heard, and that has Pennsylvanians wondering whether or not this is a subtle jab at Charlie and boost for Towne.
Regardless of whether or not Charlie Dent tries to hide from her, or Palin is trying to hide from him, the fact is that she’s one of the de facto leaders of the Republican Party so their game of hide-and-seek is irrelevant. Palin’s right wing Republican agenda was already once rejected by Pennsylvania and is on track to be rejected again.
“Is Charlie Dent hiding from Sarah Palin or is Sarah Palin hiding from Charlie Dent?” asked Mark Nicastre from the Pennsylvania State Democratic Party. “Unfortunately for Charlie Dent, it doesn’t really matter; Sarah Palin’s right wing agenda was already rejected once by the Lehigh Valley and it’s going to happen again in November, regardless of whether or not he appears with her tonight in Hershey.”
Sarah Palin will be giving a speech in Hershey this evening. [Patriot News, 8/3/10]
Where’s Charlie Dent? Since Charlie Dent’s headquarters is only about an hour and twenty minute drive from the event, maybe he doesn’t know how to get there? Or maybe he’s really being snubbed in favor of Jake Towne? Either way, we’ve included directions here:
