Remember last week when we all found out that Sarah Palin was planning on traveling to the faraway kingdom of Asia to deliver a speech before all the mesmerized Asian subjects?
Well, what's the Asian word for "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.
Wow. Just wow. It's so unlike her to fall prey to a thing like this.
