Washington (CNN) - Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's sharp criticism of the media won't stop her from breaking bread with journalists next month at a dinner here in the nation's capital.

The 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee will be the GOP speaker at the Gridiron Club and Foundation's annual winter dinner, the organization announced Friday.

House Financial Services Committee Chairman Barney Frank, D-Massachusetts, will be the Democratic speaker at the Dec. 5 event.

Palin's appearance at the Gridiron dinner will come a few weeks after her new book, "Going Rogue: An American Life," goes on sale.

    Has she got time for this? We need her to come to Florida and tell us who the Real Republicans are for the 2010 races.

    Oh goodie, she can make a fool of herself as she breaks bread with the very people who cost her the election. Hopefully her flashcards will be more usefu then.
    And, we don't need her or want her in Florida!

    For the record, if the media doesn't forget what you have done, what makes you think being nice will persuade them? Heed this warning. :)

    Todd and Sarah Palin both quit their jobs while many Americans lost jobs. If she wants to support her husband that's her business but pandering to the public to support them is totally disgusting. I'd rather help some child or family who are in need of support.

    CNN has a serious fetish regarding Sarah Palin. Every day, they let us know what she is doing. Perhaps it is because she riles up the left, which is CNN's target audience, thereby galvanizing support against anyone who would challenge a liberal candidate. Enough already. Frankly, I find it disturbing.

    I love reading the hateful angry posts by the so called enlightened and tolerant liberals. Wow! She's a sow, she's an idiot, and she has snot dripping from her mouth. Its a good thing the Republicans are hate mongers; keep the hate coming left wingers and I promise you it will cost your party when the shine comes off of President Obama.
