Sarah Palin’s So Popular, She Even Brings The Media Out In Droves

For good or bad, when Sarah is speaking, everyone wants to be there, even the media

Sarah Palin’s 11-minute speech before Washington’s Gridiron Club at its Winter Dinne tossed a few barbs at the gathering of journalists, who she compared to “death panels.”

“Sometimes you got to trust your instincts, and if you don’t, you end up in a place like this,” said the former GOP vice presidential candidate.

While the Gridiron winter meeting is usually a small, low key affair, Palin’s appearance attracted a crowd of 195 — about double the average attendance of Gridiron members and their guests.

Sure, Barney Frank was there, too, but, does anyone think the double the average attendance had anything to do with him?

The rest of the Politico story is about what Palin was wearing, and how she has been kinda mean to those po, po, po media folk, some of whom, like Jeannie Cummings and Andrew Glass (the story writers,) need to put on their big boy pants already. Oh, and a song that is just nasty regarding Rush Limbaugh and other Conservatives.

Meanwhile, the AP tells us some information that the Politico discarded in favor of their childish “she’s mean to us” whine

Sarah Palin poked fun at herself in a speech to journalists Saturday night, drawing laughter when she announced she “came down from my hotel room and I could see the Russian embassy.”

The 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate also joked that she had originally thought of titling her book “How To Look Like a Million Bucks, or Only $150,000” before settling on “Going Rogue.” In one of the controversies surrounding her candidacy, the campaign spent about $150,000 on her wardrobe.

Palin targeted her hosts, Democrats and Sen. John McCain’s campaign staff, as well as herself.

If the election had turned out differently, she said, “I could be the one overseeing the signing of bailout checks and vice president Biden could be on the road selling his book, ‘Going Rogaine.'” Biden has sparse hair.

And, via Just One Minute, the USA Today has a bit on Barney Frank telling the truth

On the relationship between politicians and the press: “Almost without exception, when someone in my business says , ‘I was quoted out of context,’ he means, ‘I wish I hadn’t said that.’

He’ll probably be saying he was quoted out of context today for that little quip.

    The picture distracted me from reveling over the fact that the media itself cannot resist a chance to catch a glimpse of Sarah.

    Wow, don’t get a chance to see her from head to toe very often. How flippin’ HOT are those shoes?

    Did Lynn Vincent write Mrs. Palin’s jokes as well as her book?

    And why wouldn’t Mrs. Palin be comfortable among reporters? She has a degree in journalism. Of course, she had to go to five of America’s finest backwater colleges to get it. She also worked as a newspaper and video sports reporter.

    But seriously, folks, Sarah Palin’s bus tour is really taking off.
