True to form, Blogging Tory Maria ("Dodo") S. rummages through Sarah Palin's laundry hamper for some used underwear to worship:
Sarah Palin's [sic] chooses Hong Kong for her first international speaking engagement
CLSA which is Asia's leading brokerage and investment group has invited Palin to be one of their keynote speakers at their forthcoming forum and according to .Washington Wire services, Palin has accepted.
“As the first female governor of Alaska and the youngest person ever elected governor of that state, Palin has broken new ground in U.S. politics and we are delighted that she will make her first visit to Asia to present at the CLSA Investors’ Forum,” CLSA Chairman and CEO Jonathan Slone said in Monday’s news release.

Hong Kong Broker Pulling A "Borat" On Sarah Palin
Hopefully Sarah Palin realizes she's been invited to Hong Kong almost certainly as a practical joke.
CLSA, the Asia-focused broker who invited Mrs. Palin as keynote speaker for an Asian investment conference, is well known for their cheeky takes on investment research.
In the past, they've polled Asian fortune tellers for index targets, hired anime cartoonists to draw Japanese research, and generally love to push the boundaries between entertainment and analysis. They are a real research firm, it's just that they love to sprinkle in some hilarity every now and then as a smart marketing gimmick.
Sarah Palin is this year's big laugh for them.
Please, dear God, let there be video.
