Looks like Sarah Palin is going to be speaking to the Cambridge Union, a debating society that is 200 years old (the oldest in the world, in fact). She won’t be debating anyone, but apparently will be giving a talk there. That should be fun and funny.
Palin, whose free-wheeling speaking style always attracts attention, is part of a slate of speakers including English actor, writer, and activist Stephen Fry, and Ukrainian feminist activist Innan Shevchenko taking part in the spring series.
The Cambridge Union Society, founded in 1815, is the oldest continuously operating debating society in the world and has featured speakers over the years from President Theodore Roosevelt to British Prime Minister Winston Churchill to the Dalai Lama to physicist Stephen Hawking.
In 2013, the Union hosted atheist and evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins in a contentious debate with former Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams on the motion: ‘This House Believes Religion has no place in the 21st Century.”
Palin is not expected to debate, but will instead give what is expected to be a memorable speech to the Union members.
Do I want to see the Q&A on this? You betcha.
