|"Ya wanna here that story about Trig's birth a gain?"|
Former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin is coming to Utah next month to headline the Pregnancy Resource Center's annual "Banquet for Life" fundraiser.
But just how much the Christian faith-based, nonprofit organization is paying the former Alaska governor for the appearance is not being made public.
"We are very, very limited in what we can say," said Kevin Andrews, the center's board chairman, citing the terms of the contract signed with Palin. "I can't get into it. I can say it was very reasonable given our expectations."
Andrews said the organization is also obligated to pick up "very nominal" expenses for Palin. He said the seven-member board has already covered both her fees and expenses, through donations as well as from their own pockets.
Tickets to see Palin mangle the English language, or in her words "speak American," are going for $100 a pop, $1,500 for a table of ten, or $5000 if they also want to see her play with the food on her plate.
It would only be a guess as to how much these idiots are paying Palin, but I would not at all be surprised that based on her dwindling popularity they found themselves losing more money than they bring in.
Which considering the fact that this is yet another one of those organizations that lie about birth control causing cancer, and prophylactics failing 50% of the time, is probably not a bad thing.
As I said in an earlier post these appearances are Palin's last refuge. And even though WE may know that the Trig birth story is full of holes, and that she is an absent parental figure in his life, these people will not be swayed by facts.
This is how the hoard chairman describes the event:
"We are stepping up in faith with this event because we believe there is an extreme need in this valley and this state for the services we provide," Andrews said, describing his organization as a "life-affirming" ministry for pregnant women and their families.
Yeah when somebody says they are "stepping up in faith," you can be sure that the critical thinking skills were left at home.
