Never mind. Tea Party of America retracted its invitation to former Delaware Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell to appear on the same billing with Sarah Palin at its rally in Indianola, Iowa, Saturday.

The former Alaska governor and 2008 vice-presidential candidate will headline the event.

News reports Monday and this morning noted that O’Donnell also would appear.

However, Tea Party of America had a change of heart after receiving “emails from a lot of tea party folks that were very disappointed that she would be speaking,” the group’s co-founder Charlie Gruschow told The Wall Street Journal later today.

“We decided not to have her speak,” Gruschow said. “We felt it was in the best interest of the movement.”

Ken Crow, president of Tea Party of America, said, “I made a mistake. I assumed there was an open slot, and there wasn’t.”
