RNC ignores Sarah Palin in recognizing GOP women trailblazers

palin-rnc-speechThe Republican National Committee released a statement over the weekend commemorating Women’s History Month that served as little more than a slap in the face to Sarah Palin.

Equal opportunity was the theme RNC chair Reince Priebus and co-chair Sharon Day drew upon as they highlighted Republican women seen as trailblazers, but omitted any reference to the party’s first female vice presidential nominee.

“Republican women have a history of being trailblazers, breaking ground and glass ceilings — from Margaret Chase Smith, the first woman to be elected to both the House and the Senate, to the nation’s first Latina governor, Susana Martinez of New Mexico and the country’s youngest sitting governor, Nikki Haley of South Carolina,” the statement read.

Incredibly, Palin played a key role in 2010 election of Martinez and Haley.

As Breitbart News reported, RealClearPolitics reporter Scott Conroy wrote that both women were the beneficiary of the “single most powerful weapon upstart Republican candidates could hope for that year: the endorsement of Sarah Palin.”

Fox News’ Todd Starnes posted a link to the RNC statement on his Facebook wall, along with this comment:

The Republican Party omits Sarah Palin from list of prominent Republican women.

And they wonder why they keep losing elections. Clueless.

“Palin’s omission is conspicuous and bizarre,” Breitbart News’ Tony Lee wrote, adding that “the RNC does not want to be associated with the movement that propelled the party to its only win in the last four election cycles.”

Clueless indeed.
