Sarah Palin will soon make another speaking engagement. She’s been invited to be the GOP speaker at the Gridiron Club’s Winter Dinner on Dec. 5, which, according to her spokeswoman, she has accepted. Yes, we’ll see, because with Palin you can never be entirely sure she’ll show up. Or perhaps, she’ll quit mid speech. But for now, I’ll play along.
This isn’t really all that much of a news item. Except it did catch my eye, simply because of the Democrat who will be representing his party at the dinner.
That would be one Barney Frank (D-Mass.).
That will be interesting! (Did Sarah know this before she accepted? Just asking?)
Too bad it won’t be a debate. That would be even better! Especially since Sarah’s still spewing out conspiracies old and new, and fear-mongering with a vengeance and blaming every bad thing that’s happened in the free world on the “evil” Democrats! Apparently she’s still ranting about death panels, murder-by-health-care of the elderly, with the usual “Reagan” invocations scattered here and there. Just more of the same tiring thing. Blah, blah, blah.
But there is one new thing she’s come up with. It’s the great “coin conspiracy” in which Palin is babbling something about the “In God We Trust” being moved to the edge of the American coins being “a disturbing trend?” Again, I say: “?”
Whatever. My point is that with Barney Frank in the same room with the great defender of “ka-ching” herself, I think it presents a great opportunity for him to repeat his now infamous quote from a town hall this summer:
On what planet indeed?
Oh please Rep. Frank, ask her? On behalf of all of us here on “Planet Reality?”
