Palin chooses pro-life event over White House Correspondent’s Dinner

Posted by loricalabrese on May 2, 2011

While Barack Obama and the press schmoozed it up at the White House Correspondent’s Dinner on Saturday, the former Governor of Alaska chose a different venue, a pro-life event titled, “Heroes Among Us” in Bethesda, MD.

Palin delivered the keynote address at the fundraiser for the anti-abortion group, Heroic Media stating, ““The pro-life cause or White House Correspondents’ Dinner? I choose life. We’re not going to be absent from that arena… I think we kind of want to infiltrate it. We want to get in there and affect that change.”

Palin presented an award to Lila Rose, a pro-life activist who conducted a video sting operation against Planned Parenthood.

“Planned Parenthood doesn’t empower women or offer women who find themselves in less than ideal circumstances any kind of real choice. What they offer is not real choice or female health care,” Palin said as she stumped hard against Planned Parenthood and abortion rights advocates.

Meanwhile, back at the White House Correspondent’s Dinner, Obama took shots at Donald Trump for his show, The Celebrity Apprentice, and for focusing on Obama’s birth certificate.

For Trump’s decision to fire actor Busey instead of Meat Loaf on the show, Obama joked, “These are the types of decisions that would keep me up at night. Well handled, sir.”

Kudos to Palin for choosing to affect change, rather than focusing on Donald Trump’s hair. Palin did attend two after parties “to meet some people and catch up with her daughter Bristol who was in town for the dinner,” according to Greta Van Susteren at her blog, GretaWire.

It’s interesting to read Van Susteren’s take on how the media, yes the same people who take all of their effort to negatively portray the former Governor in the press, were fawning over the potential 2012 candidate.

“…what is fascinating to watch is how the media (all of them!) just can’t get enough of Governor Sarah Palin,” Van Susteren writes. “They were all taking pictures of her with themselves for souvenirs and writing about her.  She was prominent in the Washington Post coverage, Politico and I think the New York Times. Her name and picture was everywhere!

With all the movie stars at the dinner, and big media and government names (Cabinet Secretaries and Senators etc.), whose picture does Vanity Fair show?  You guessed it …(and she was only at their after party and not the dinner!)”
