Report: Palin Hasn’t Received Invitation To 2012 RNC

Sarah Palin made a grand national introduction at the 2008 Republican National Convention when she accepted the party’s vice presidential nomination, but she may not be a part of this year’s GOP confab.  Newsweek reports that Palin has yet to receive an invitation to participate at her party’s 2012 convention in Tampa, where Mitt Romney will be officially minted as the Republican presidential nominee.

Romney and Palin haven’t exactly been close political allies.  Palin’s nationwide bus tour rolled through New Hampshire last June on the same day that Romney kicked off his presidential run in the Granite State — a move interpreted by many as one-upmanship on the part of the former Alaska governor
