At The Note, ABC's John Berman notes that while President Obama will be TelePromTering his State of the Union Address next week, Sarah Palin will be delivering a speech of her own:
She will deliver the keynote address to 54th Annual Weatherby Hunting and Conservation Award Dinner. According to its website, the Weatherby Foundation “exists to help preserve ethical sport hunting on a global basis.” It was created in honor of Roy Weatherby who was a major figure in the gun industry. His official bio says he, “championed the benefits of ultra high velocity by creating proprietary Weatherby Magnum cartridges. He also developed the legendary Mark V® rifle action.”h/t: Whitney and Ian
The speech to this hunting group will be the first of two that Palin will deliver next week in Reno. On Saturday January 29th, she will address the annual convention for Safari Club International. Anyone who has watched “Sarah Palin’s Alaska,” on TLC knows that Palin is an avid hunter who relishes delivering “organic sources of protein” to her family. The show pictured her shooting a variety of different guns.
Both speeches in Nevada have been Palin’s calendar for some time.
