Sarah Palin is surprise guest at White House Correspondents’ weekend parties
The Washington Post's Reliable Source ^ | April 30, 2011 | Roxanne Roberts and Amy Argetsinger

And you thought this weekend was going to be all about Donald Trump! Probably only one other lightening-rod VIP could have stolen the mogul’s buzz in the pro-am zeitgeist tournament known as the White House Correspondents’ weekend, and darned if she didn’t pull a surprise appearance. You betcha, she did.

Sarah Palin walked into the Georgetown home of Mark Ein shortly before noon Saturday to dazzle a brunch crowd of Washington insiders and visiting luminaries. Black bell-sleeved summer dress, shiny hair. She and a clean-shaven Todd Palin posed for a few photos with hosts Wendi Murdoch and Susan Axelrod, then carved a path through the crowded dining room with their host for the weekend, Fox News’s Greta Van Susteren.

So, a win for Van Susteren, scoring the buzziest guest? (Her other guest, Kate Hudson, had to bow out for movie-promotion commitments.) Sure, but with an asterix, for Palin’s not actually expected at tonight’s White House Correspondents’ Association dinner, Van Susteren’s husband John Coale told us: “She’s just doing the brunch and the after-parties.”

--snip--

The most striking aspect of Friday’s pre-parties was the randomness of it all. Bristol Palin (thinner than you expect) at Time and People’s reception at the St. Regis. Palin was the magazine’s guest for the weekend, lured by the promise of hanging out with mutual, unnamed friends. “It’s going to be a fun event!” she said, as guests thrust cameras at her handler for a picture with the abstinence advocate.....

Never happen. Press libs (and most libs really) are the sort that will say one thing to your face and then stab you in the back when you have it turned. They have no hesitation to be nice to you in person and then skewer you in their next column.

(p.s. Is the Post sure that it wasn't the Sarah Palin impersonator that showed up at CPAC??

Meow. I can just imagine the Post making snarky comments about the weight of anyone but a Republican.

Palin... said, as guests thrust cameras at her handler

And of course I can also imagine them referring to a Democrat's "handler". Sure.

for a picture with the abstinence advocate

Oh SNAP! Got her good! In the same way the Post constantly refers to the president as "the Gitmo closure advocate" or "the Iraq withdrawal advocate."

Like the article linked on Drudge said “All these guys who normally rip her a new one are stumbling over each other to get a photo with Sarah Palin”

Sarah seems to be liking being a part of the establishment as a celebrity.

I don’t think she is running for President in 2012. Just a gut feeling.

She was also attending a fundraiser for special needs children, hosted by one of these elites.

If you are going to preach the gospel, you have to go where the sinners are.

That there is one of the few men on earth who can get away with hugging Sarah like that while Todd is just feet away.
