Sarah Palin, Barney Frank to headline Gridiron Club Winter Dinner


WASHINGTON--You betcha, she's coming. Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin--on book tour to promote her memoir, "Going Rogue: An American Life" will headline the Gridiron Club winter dinner here--along with Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.).

Palin, the outspoken 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee, will be the Republican speaker at the Dec. 5 gathering; the equally outspoken Frank, the chairman of the House Financial Services Committee is the Democratic speaker. A just published biography of Frank is titled, Barney Frank: The Story of America's Only Left-Handed, Gay, Jewish Congressman

The Gridiron Club is an invitation-only association of Washington journalists whose active membership is limited to 65. The winter dinner is a small affair; each spring the club sponsors a white-tie dinner attended by the who's who of Washington.



This has GOT to be the hottest ticket in town....

My bet is on Sarah to administer a thorough "slap-down"...if she isn't her usual, very polite self!!

I'll go with whatever Sarah wants to do but my first inclination is to not pal around with scum like Barney Frank and a bunch of sleazeball journalists. This isn't a game, it's war and totalitarians are out for our blood. Hopefully Sarah will continue her path of leadership and do something unexpected and exciting here also. PALIN 2012!
