Sarah Palin Won't Debate June 13! Needs 'Who Wants To Be A Millionaire' Lifelines

By Robert Paul Reyes

Sarah Palin, a former Alaska Gov. and reality TV star, turned down an invitation today to the New Hampshire primary debate on June 13. In her place, seven declared or soon-to-be declared candidates for the Republican presidential nomination will take to the stage for a debate hosted by CNN`s John King.
In response to the invitation, Palin said to WMUR: "That`s quite soon. So, no I don`t think I`m going to be there. Thank you for asking though.`

Palin`s excuse for turning down an invitation to join the June 13th debate is bogus. It`s not too soon; in fact it`s almost too late to late for any serious candidate to join the presidential field.
This is yet another piece of evidence that Palin has no intentions of running for president. The former beauty queen is having too much fun writing " books, starring in reality shows, mentoring Bristol on how to cash in on her fame, and teasing the media.
Palin would only join a debate if it were conducted like Who Wants To Be A Millionaire. " The former beauty queen would feel comfortable only if she could call a friend or an expert, or ask the audience for guidance before answering a question.
The June 13th debate is going to be a dull affair without Palin, don`t expect any fireworks from the likes of Mitt Romney or Tim Pawlenty.
