Governor Sarah Palin will speak at the Gridiron Dinner on December 5th. Rep. Barney Frank is the invitee for Democrats. What a pairing.
According to this report, the winter Gridiron is not public, and is considered off-the-record. Does that mean that absolutely nothing will leak? the spring Gridiron is usually a hilarious affair, depending on your sense of humor.
Palin will show up Saturday night as the author of the bestselling Going Rogue, and Franks shows up as the topic of a new biography: Barney Frank: The Story of America’s Only Left-Handed, Gay, Jewish Congressman. His book was released in September 2009.

The Gridiron is the most prestigeous journalistic organization in Washington, D.C. The members represent major newspapers, news magazines, broadcast networks and news services. Membership is by invitation only, but I think FOX News is a member anyway. I hope we hear some stories about Palin’s speech. Surely someone will talk.
