CLSA on Twitter - UPDATE: Cameron Sinclair article - UPDATE II - More Pics

Pic posted on Twitter by Cellomonkey here.

A couple of guys were in the CLSA audience during Sarah Palin's speech and twittered the event. Their accounts are here and here. The second guy is also a speaker at the event.

Cellomonkey seems to be left-leaning, but fairly unbiased, although he follows Obama and Rachel Maddow. Casinclair is an environmental architecture guy who has had articles posted on the Huffington Post and is a fan of Van Jones on Facebook. Still, he seems to be sincere in his belief and focused on architecture, so I don't think he's necessarily a Kool-Aid drinker. Anyway, in that context, here are both of their Tweets in chronological order (Cellomonkey = CM, and Casinclair = CC) :

CC: Kind ironic. Sarah Palin will talk foreign policy (wed keynote) and I'll speak about lack of US policy during Katrina (thurs keynote).

CC: Checking keynotes sched for this event in HK. I'm firmly in between Sarah Palin and Sheryl Crow. A sentence I never thought I'd ever write.

CC: Funnily enough palin and my talks are the only ones closed to the media. Mine is probably lack of interest.....

CC: Dear @CNN your reporter is the only one trying the sweet tactic to get a quote. Not working either.

CC: Hey ms Palin, I'll let you tweet my keynote tomorrow lunch. I'm talking on Katrina and school reform through public/private partnerships.

CC: @cellomonkey my pics sucked. My keynote tomorrow will have 180 more slides than Palin.

CC: @Tx4Obama no problem didn't realize I was one of only two tweeting. Had to find alt. Network to send.

CC: ok speech with occational hits. Interesting Palin attacked GOP more than Dems.
And there endeth the Tweets

A comment on Sarah's Facebook wall:

Catherine Yu Yeun Chen: I have really great news, a friend who attended the Forum where Mrs Palin made the Keynote Speech at the CLSA Investor's Forum, just while ago, said: Sarah Palin was received with the biggest round of applause it took 3 minutes at least before she was able to start her Speech and that the Speech itself was brilliant and astute and that she took China to task aggressivaly but without been offensive or rude, and she answered many questions brilliantly and smartly after the speech itself, and she was looking beautiful and relaxed and again received a standing applause, but my friend can not tell me anything about the speech-address, it is CLSA rules, and it is up to Sarah and the Organizers to decide whether the speech will be available for public reading.

UPDATE: CC (Cameron Sinclair) wrote an article for the Huffington Post about the speech here. Apparently he got his Fed tweet wrong.

Sarah the Brave. Not only did she give a great speech, but she called China out on human rights, etc., while having 1000 Chinese missiles pointed at her.
