    The Sharon K Pacheco Foundation had scheduled its Patriots & Warriors Gala for May 2, and Palin was to be the keynote speaker, according to The Denver Post. The foundation's mission is "to provide assistance to military families and at-risk youth," and the event was to serve as a fundraiser for military families and children who have lost loved ones in combat.

    "Due to an onslaught of personal attacks against Governor Palin and others associated with her appearance, it is with deep sadness and disappointment that, in the best interest of all, we cancel the event for safety concerns," the Facebook post reads.


    The announcement also states that no direct threats had been made against anyone, but said that the "increase in negative rhetoric against the former Alaska governor" after the Tucson shooting "raises concern for her safety and the safety of others despite the call for civility in America."

    If she'd gone ahead with the event, you'd be bitching like a bunch of rabid banshees about that too. Y'all are obsessed with Palin. I suggest you get over it. It's getting boring.

    yeah... i'm having a tough time laying this one at palin's feet. the given reason doesn't make much sense, but it sounds less like she pulled out and more like they cancelled.

    still - as noble as their goals seem i couldn't see myself supporting an organization that would have her as speaker.

    Why do you folks continually snipe at my secret sweetie? She knows how to field dress a moose. Doesn't that count for something in your book?

    Hmmmm...the OP cites a statement on Facebook by the organization which cancelled the event...and somehow this gets spun into Palin playing professional victim?
