Wit vs. Half-Wit

From The New York Times:

The former Alaska governor and one-time vice presidential candidate [Sarah Palin] has been traveling the country in recent weeks, promoting her book and disparaging Democrats, the Washington establishment and the media elite. Huge crowds greet her wherever the bus entourage takes her.

…snip…

Well, Saturday night, if all goes to plan, Ms. Palin’s book tour will take her someplace else: the Gridiron Club’s winter dinner in Washington. For those who don’t know, the Gridiron dinners are among the most exclusive of Washington events where the city’s media elite — to borrow a phrase — share dinner, drinks and bonhomie with elected officials, political leaders and other members of the governing elite.

Ms. Palin, the Republican vice presidential candidate under Senator John McCain of Arizona last year, is one of two guests speakers, who in years past were invited to provide typically humorous speeches. The other speaker this year is Representative Barney Frank, the liberal Democrat from Massachusetts.

Oh, to be a fly on one of those walls!

…snip…

Now, back to that lunch with Meghan…

Montag says the two have become “good friends” since first meeting less than three months ago at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner in Washington, D.C.
