Sarah Palin's Comedy Tour

Sarah Palin has pulled another trick out of her sleeve, most recently proving her standup comedy chops. The world’s most famous losing candidate spoke as a GOP representative at the Gridiron Dinner, an annual event for Washington elite where speakers are expected to break out their best zingers. Palin said she was honored to be speaking in front of the high-ranking group of intellectuals, “Or as I like to call it, a death panel.” She also had some barbs for the man who beat her out for the vice presidency: “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.'” The dinner is typically off-the-record, but as with any Palin event the media took notice and an exception was made to allow coverage. “The view is so much better from inside the bus than under it,” said Palin of her former candidacy.
