You betcha.

According to The Wine & Spirits Wholesalers of America (WSWA) website, Sarah Palin, Governor of Alaska (2006-2009) and 2008 Republican Vice-Presidential Nominee, is the keynote speaker for the opening General Session at its 67th Annual Convention and Expositional, April 6-8, 2010, at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.

Wine blogger Dr. Vino said: “I guess they couldn’t get Tina Fey.”

According to WSWA’s president and CEO Craig Wolf: “Governor Palin is a great supporter of America’s free enterprise system and understands that industries like the beverage alcohol industry play a key role in driving our national economy. We’re proud and honored to welcome her as a speaker. We expect she will share with the convention attendees her analysis of the current political environment and her vision for America’s future.”

Karen MacNeil, author of the Wine Bible, is known for imagining big personalities as wines, and I can’t help but wonder what varietal she’d pick for Palin. As for me, I see Palin the hunter as a gamy, meaty syrah. What do you think?

Say, do you think it’s a good idea to pair politics with wine?
