The Sharon K Pacheco Foundation announced the cancellation of their 2011 Patriots & Warriors Charity Gala and included a statement on their Facebook page. It reads, "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 foundation went on to say no direct threats were made against Palin or anyone else involved with the event.

Why does she still get referred to as Governor? When you QUIT on your state you don't deserve the title.

So what they are really saying is that no one has threatened everyone but since Sarah has made such a complete ass out of herself lately and more and more 'true' Americans are seeing this self centered media whore for what she is they have canceled the event.

I admire John Mccain for his service and POW status - Bu I will never forgive him for unleashing this DOLT on America and the World!

If Snooky can last 3 years in the media spotlight I guess SP can...

Is this what America has become?

It's already been said, but everyone needs to stop calling her Governor Palin. When you quit a job, you don't get to keep the title.

Liberals making personal attacks, imagine that, and at a charity event to boot.

I just have no idea how any of these hateful people can look at themselves.

What ever happened to them being the accepting party, oh yeah, they are accepting of only those that go along with their agenda.

The more these lefties rag on Sarah the more likely she'll run. The should direct their anger towards the White House where it belongs. It's amazing how many of you are so concerned about Alaska. Is that one of the leftie talking points?

This isn't hate this is truth. Palin should never have been made into a public figure. She's an airhead and a blowhard and it's about time people admit it. Of course blowing hard isn't always a bad thing. I get the feeling she's all talk no action though.

Sounds like Sarah didn't realize people were going to be able to get their picture taken with her..that would mean letting the peasants get too close and she couldn't have that now.. it would break that everyone must keep at least 10 feet away even at book signings rule she has. Plus it was a NON-Profit group doing a Charity event... so I'm guessing they figured Sarah would come and participate for free.. then they got word of the bill and all the security that Sarah would need and demanded they pay for. With all the discounts the place was offering on tickets I would guess they didn't have some huge budget to begin with.

Oh, please. Is this lunatic still trying to make some effort at equating the gun-toting mouth-breathers on the right with educated liberals appalled that someone so stupid got so close to the White House? Sarah Palin is a joke and the goons that swoon for her need serious help.
