SHARE Sarah Palin, Barney Frank to headline Gridiron Club Winter Dinner

WASHINGTON–You betcha, she’s coming. Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin–on book tour to promote her memoir, “Going Rogue: An American Life” will headline the Gridiron Club winter dinner here–along with Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.).

Palin, the outspoken 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee, will be the Republican speaker at the Dec. 5 gathering; the equally outspoken Frank, the chairman of the House Financial Services Committee is the Democratic speaker. A just published biography of Frank is titled, Barney Frank: The Story of America’s Only Left-Handed, Gay, Jewish Congressman

The Gridiron Club is an invitation-only association of Washington journalists whose active membership is limited to 65. The winter dinner is a small affair; each spring the club sponsors a white-tie dinner attended by the who’s who of Washington.
