I missed the Keane/Fed Ex thing mentioned by others and did some research. Apparently it was a big reason why Palin turned down CPAC:

"At issue is the role of David Keene, head of the American Conservative Union which organizes CPAC. In September, POLITICO reported that Keene asked FedEx for between $2 million and $3 million to get the group's support in a bitter legislative battle with rival UPS.

A source close to the Palin camp says that request led to a decision to stay away from the upcoming CPAC conference, calling it a forum that will place "special interests over core beliefs" and "pocketbook over policy."

"That's not what CPAC should be about and people are tiring," the source said. "Palin is taking a stance against this just as she did in Alaska."

When asked about the move, Palin spokeswoman Meg Stapleton said: "We support those who advance our core beliefs and lead by principle."

Hilarious video of CPAC's Keane getting hammered by John Ziegler about Palin attacks, support for Arlen Specter, and the Fed Ex thing. Keane calls John Ziegler an a-hole and threatens to hit him.
