Christine O'Donnell To Open For Sarah Palin In Iowa [Updated]

Two ladies who are not doing much of anything lately in terms of actual political power would like the world to remember that they exist too, and that they were doing this far-right gaffe-happy brunette thing before a certain Minnesota congresswoman. Yes, Christine O'Donnell is the warm-up act for Sarah Palin's Saturday speech at an Iowa tea party rally.

It's awfully nice for O'Donnell to take time out of her busy schedule of book shilling and interview stomping-offing, considering Palin's endorsement didn't actually win her an undoubtedly merited Delaware Senate seat. Palin's people, meanwhile, have insisted that she will not announce a presidential candidacy Saturday. But she wants you to keep asking!

Update: That was fast — O'Donnell's been disinvited. One organizer said, ""I made a mistake. I assumed there was an open slot and there wasn't." But another said, ""We decided not to have her speak. We felt it was in the best interest of the [tea party] movement."
