    It's unclear whether or not she was asked, but Sarah Palin – as predicted by Newsweek’s Peter Boyer – has announced she will not be making a speech at the Republican National Convention. The former vice presidential candidate released a statement on the blog of Fox's Greta Van Susteren saying she looks forward to hearing "other voices speak at the convention." She'll be focusing instead on grassroots organization to support Romney-Ryan and other Republican candidates "so a wise Congress is ready to work with our new president to get our country back on the right path."
