    Default Sarah Palin back in news

    Palin's lectures ain't selling

    Former Alaska Gov. and Vice Presidential wannabe Sarah Palin thinks what she has to say is so important that people should be willing to pay up to $100,000 to hear her speak.
    But no line is forming to book her.
    The New York Post reports that Palin's lecture schedule of empty because some places are afraid to book her and others consider her a "blithering idiot."
    And the publisher who paid her a $7 million advance for her book is wondering how much it will lose on the gamble.

    Is it? The source of the information is actually Rupert Murdoch's publication, The New York Post (It should be noted, however, that the report is on the gossip page -- Page 6). Other publications have noted that many famous speakers, including Clinton and Bush, had problems selling their lectures in the US in the first year after leaving office and found their greatest success in foreign countries. Palin did a lecture last week in Hong Kong, but reportedly had a mixed reception. The Washington Speakers Bureau, which represents her, admits that there have been few takers so far but says they expect that to change over time.

    Huffington post??

    Rush Limbaugh:

    "Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin this week will begin accepting and rejecting the more than 1,070 invitations she has received for paid speeches and political appearances since she resigned from office, aides said. Twenty speakersí bureaus made offers to represent her. ... More than 950 requests for speeches have poured in for Palin, and over 120 candidates for office have asked her to appear, including folks running for Senate, House and state Legislature, aides said." It was just yesterday, Page Six in the New York Post ran a story from an unidentified source who said that nobody wants her. She's a blithering idiot. People are afraid to book her. She can't get request to do a speech. They're asking a hundred grand for speeches she can't get one invitation. There's a story last night from the mainstream media. Not even the mainstream media was buying it, since you don't get a $7 million advance from a liberal publishing company if nobody wants you. "

    Seems to be a slight difference of opinion (or facts) here.......


    Yea, Yea, I know, my source has NO cred....but the Huffington Post could not possibly be biased!!

    What else would you expect Rush to say, that she is a blithering idiot?

    On Palin's speech in Hong Kong (which by the way was closed to the media)

    One attendee said she criticized the U.S. Federal Reserveís massive intervention in the economy over the last year, arguing its actions only exacerbated the crisis.

    This is the woman who, during a speech in Hong Kong the other day, blamed last year's financial collapse on excessive government interference in the free markets. Clearly, Ms. Palin knows almost as much about finance as she does about Russia.

    Last Year? (when W was President?) excessive government interference? (Socialism) (when W was President?)

    Wasn't her and Mr. McCain's campaign "suspended" so that he could rush back to DC and vote for the stimulus package?

    Hey Roger, if she's such a loser than why is her book setting unprecedented records for pre-pub sales? Her publisher is laughing all the way to the bank.

    DNF.....McCain is a dufus. It wasn't Palin that sunk that campaign, to the contrary.
    Train the dog, the ribbons will take care of themselves.

    Sarah Palinís book is certainly doing well, but I wouldnít say her book sales are unprecedented. Itís fairly typical for highly anticipated books to jump to the top of bestseller ratings as soon as they become available for pre-order. The true test will be how long it stays there.
