The Girl Is Funny

Sarah Palin's speech to the Winter meeting of the Gridiron club. The President declined to come, making him the first Prez since Grover Cleveland to miss the first Gridiron meeting of his presidency. We decline to assume it's because he can't make a joke about himself and are giving him a chance to make the Spring meeting. But as such dinners are used to grease relationships between the President and the press, it does seem to suggest Obama thinks his press relationships are fine as they are. Palin was good.
To paraphrase John F. Kennedy, this has to be the most extraordinary collection of people who have gathered to viciously attack me since the last corporate gathering at CBS.

Despite what you have read, or more likely, despite what you have written, I do feel a real bond with all of you. I studied journalism, earned a communications degree and for a time only wanted to be a journalist. I was even a television sportscaster back home.

I'm guessing some of you probably got your start the exact same way... once there was television.
