Yep, you heard that right: former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin will travel to Hong Kong for her first commercial speaking engagement, a keynote address at the CLSA Investors’ Forum September 23. Given that foreign policy was a soft spot for Palin during the 2008 campaign, this will give her a chance to boost her foreign policy cred (and she’ll be able to see Taiwan from her hotel room).
What on earth is the CLSA Investors’ Forum? Do these people handle money and financial transactions? Because anyone who would pay her to come speak shouldn’t be handling people’s money. Then again, it would explain the Wall Street crash.
BTW- I just love that she so blatantly quit her job to join the wingnut welfare circuit.
