Sarah Palin to deliver huge speech -- except she doesn't know about it


(Read caption) The chairmen of the National Republican Senatorial and Congressional Committees announced that Alaska Governor Sarah Palin would be speaking at their annual dinner on June 8th in Washington. The only problem was that Palin and her staff didn't know anything about it.

It's one of the biggest political dinners of the year. And guess who's delivering the keynote?

Sarah Palin.

Except she's not.


There's been a lot of criticism lately that the Republican party doesn't have its act together. But it really just depends on how you see it.

When it comes to calling for mass suicides at AIG, Republicans are number one.

So if there is a little confusion over who is speaking at the annual GOP Senate-House Dinner, it'll surely work itself out.

Keynote address

Lavishing praise, the heads of the House and Senate Republican campaign committees announced yesterday that Palin would be speaking at the annual dinner on June 8th in Washington.

Using phrases like "breath of fresh air" and "up-and-coming" and "she's not like Jindal at all" "brightest rising stars", these chairmen couldn't seem to contain themselves over announcing Palin's keynote for the function.


The only problem was that Palin or her staff didn't know about it.

In fact, Palin was the one who read it (take that, Katie Couric!) and brought it to her staff's attention.

"I pointed out the (National Republican Senatorial Committee) press release and she was like, no," her press secretary told the Anchorage Daily News.

What happened?


It's kind of a he-said, she-said, who-said, you-said, no-we-didn't, type thing.
