"I have really great news, a friend who attended the Forum where Mrs Palin made the Keynote Speech at the CLSA Investor's Forum, just while ago, said: Sarah Palin was received with the biggest round of applause it took 3 minutes at least before she was able to start her Speech and that the Speech itself was brilliant and astute and that she took China to task aggressivaly but without been offensive or rude, and she answered many questions brilliantly and smartly after the speech itself, and she was looking beautiful and relaxed and again received a standing applause, but my friend can not tell me anything about the speech-address, it is CLSA rules, and it is up to Sarah and the Organizers to decide whether the speech will be available for public reading."The following tweets are from cellomonkey (not a Palin fan):
#Think sarah palin will wink at me tomorrow?These tweets are from Cameron Sinclair (casinclair, also not a Palin fan, but his impressions of the speech treat her fairly), apparently also a scheduled speaker at the event:

#Kind ironic. Sarah Palin will talk foreign policy (wed keynote) and I'll speak about lack of US policy during Katrina (thurs keynote).Sinclair posted a suprisingly unbiased summary of the Palin speech at HuffPo here. The Wall Street Journal's even-handed coverage is here. The New York Times' treatment of the Palin speech is cold-day-in-hell positive here (a must-read!). The usual negative take from CNN, the Clinton News Network, is here. Euro-socialist AFP's negatively-slanted article is here. A biased AP report is here, and a very biased Bloomberg story is here.
