Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin has canceled a planned trip next month to war-ravaged Sudan, one of the most unstable nations in the world and the focus of passionate advocacy within the U.S. evangelical community.
Palin scrapped her plans to visit the North African country for scheduling reasons, several sources close to Palin said. She was planning to travel with Franklin Graham, the son of evangelical leader Billy Graham, as well as Fox News personality Greta Van Susteren to the July 9 independence ceremony of South Sudan, the sources said.
Earlier today, in the wake of the bus tour quitting announcement, the news aggregator memeorandum looked like this, showing 28 articles appearing about her "quitting halfway through":
Is there anything else she can quit today?
I'm wondering if there may be a connection between these sudden schedule changes and Malia Litman's April request to the state for an investigation of Palin for tax fraud regarding the tax write-off for her political advertisement that was masked as some sort of reality show, or from her May request to the chief Federal criminal investigator for Alaska, to look into the same matter. At the time, Litman's request struck me as valid and important.
Update: Palin claims she is on jury duty. Makes sense
