Typhoon Palin Expected to Make Landfall in Hong Kong This Month

September 1st, 2009 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen

Take cover, Hong Kong. Typhoon Palin’s about to hit your shores.


CNN reports that Sarah Palin will be the keynote speaker at Hong Kong-brokerage firm CLSA’s Investors conference on September 23 (past speakers have included Al Gore, Bill Clinton, and Alan Greenspan). It will be the first trip to Asia for the 45 year-old, ex-Alaskan governor, who famously bragged during the presidential campaign that Alaska’s proximity to Russia gave her foreign policy street cred.

The Atlantic Monthly wondered what Palin will have to say in Hong Kong, and beyond “bless your hearts,” “maverick,” “hockey mom,” “um, um, well, um,” and “real women obliterate wolves from planes,” we were wondering the same thing ourselves.

[UPDATE: Business Insider suspects this speaking engagement may be a practical joke. On Palin.]
