    When Sarah Palin delivers a speech this summer in California, audience questions will be pre-screened, her water bottles will have bendable straws and she'll get three rooms at a luxury hotel, according to a contract found in a trash bin by college students.

    The California State University students uncovered the five-page document after hearing school administrators might be shredding documents related to Palin's scheduled speech to the Stanislaus Foundation, The Associated Press reported.

    The former vice presidential candidate will get first-class plane tickets. If she doesn't fly commercial, "the private aircraft MUST BE a Lear 60 or larger," according to the contract, dated March 16.

    For the post-speech Q&A period, Palin requires that "questions are to be collected from the audience in advance, pre-screened and a designated representative...shall ask questions directly of the speaker [Palin] to avoid delay time with a roving microphone in the audience."

    The contract doesn't state how much Palin is to be paid. She reportedly gets about $100,000 per speaking engagement.

    those request are modest.

    but remember this speaking event had been cancelled.

    I don't equate "hillbilly" with Alaska or Idaho (where she was). Now Arkansas, West Virginia and Kentucky are a different story

    If she wasn't good looking, she would not be popular.

    If she wasn't a political threat, you liberals wouldn't be trying so hard to make her look bad. Is this the best you can do? lol

    Political threat ? She's probably the main reason, Mc Cain and the reps didn't win the election !

    How many times are you going to make that point? Running out of anything with substance like the broken record Tiegirl.
    It just baffles us Dems, how Palin inspires you people. She talks out the side of her pretty head and says anything that will make her more popular.

    contract contains language demanding bendable straws but not the money? Seems odd.

    Palin has more facebook and twitter followers than the white house. She helped to bring the race closer than it would have been otherwise.

    You've done nothing but support my remark. You keep focusing on her like she matters, the only reason she matters to you is because she is a political threat. Even if she doesn't run my bet is she will be a key player in helping kick Barry out of office in 2012. Just wait and see.

    I think the state of the economy will be a much more formidable opponent in 2012. If things have turned around he will get re-elected; if not, the Republicans could pick Steve Colbert and he would win in a landslide.

    Thats is an obvious point. When Bush left office his name was dirt because of the economy.

    This coming from a guy that voted for a spoon fed, draft dodging, drunk, war driven, double the debt, almost destroy the world economy, stupid, stubborn, George W. Bush. And who wants to put a redneck community college beauty queen, who quits here elected position because she has a money agenda, into office. . Your opinion has no weight, you would vote for Stalin if he gave you a tax cut.

    At least we know his records are open for the world to see.
    and where is your compassion ? Why all the name calling ?
    and why is it morally wrong in your view to be successful and acquire wealth ?

    Money brings power. I hate people who abuse power for there own agenda. W and Palin are the poster children of people abusing power.

    B.O. is the biggest power-hungry narcissist that there is. He sure looked 'cocky' as 47 nations attended his nuke party. Not many details covered, but 47 leaders were looking to Barry......feeding the narcissism gene in him!!

    IE; yesterday claiming that the teapartiers "should be thanking me".....get over yourself!!

    As opposed to your poorer thief that is greedy for wealth but does not have power to abuse?

    I think you covered most of the class warfare rhetoric in your last couple of posts. Did you say something about your greedy efforts investing in the stock market recently? shame shame.

    Back to topic of Palin.....as of this moment, she's a private citizen and what she gets for a speaking engagement is her own damn business. It's only the IRS that will require her to tell at year's end what she made. I'm sure Bill Clinton & others are not doing speaking dates out of the goodness of their hearts....they get fees also!
