Barack Obama and Sarah Palin will butt heads once again, but this time the atmosphere will be a touch lighter. The two will appear onstage Saturday in Washington at the Alfalfa Club dinner, a 96-year-old gathering of 200 bigwigs that exists only for the event, Politico reports. The group has traditionally been dominated by white males who roast each other and themselves.
The club always picks a mock candidate for president, and three of them have, in fact, gone on to the Oval Office—perhaps a good sign for Palin if she’s picked. The event is not open to the public, but look for some highlights to leak to the reporters cooling their heels in the lobby outside the black-tie event.
