sarah palin’s speaking power

apparently sarah palin’s first paid speaking engagement post-elective office will be in hong kong giving a keynote address at the ‘CLSA Investors’ Forum’ on september 23rd. this is really interesting to me seeing how foreign policy was a soft spot for her in the 2008 campaign. this also helps with business cred.


sarah palin

she can pick and choose what she wants to do:

“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 speakers’ bureaus made offers to represent her. She has signed with Washington Speakers Bureau, which represents everyone from George and Laura Bush to Bob Woodward and Katie Couric [ snort ] to Alan Greenspan, Colin Powell and Rudy Giuliani.

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.

Palin will be doing both paid speeches, which are expected to go for six figures apiece, and unpaid speeches for political and charitable causes, including Christian organizations, groups that support families with special-needs children and military families… “

950 X $100,000 = $95,000,000: liberal heads are exploding all over america.

    95,000,000 is one hell of a campaign chest

  • Seamus says:

    Didn’t you know? They don’t want her to do a speech. They think she’s an idiot like the rest of the world. In fact she is NOT to say one word but just stand in a slutty french maid outfit.

  • PenniePan says:

    How many of you would actually pay $$ to go hear Sarah Palin “speak”? Oh come on.

  • Jared says:

    I would go listen to her if it was free. It could be good entertainment plus she’s not bad on the eyes. I am not surprised that she can make that much money. For some, she’s the flavor of the month but she has no real staying power imo.

  • Symone says:

    UGH. I could never go hear Alaska Barbie speak because her first “You Betcha!” and I would be puking my brains out. She is too stupid to be paid to give a speech. Are you sure that it isn’t the audience that’s being paid to hear her instead???

  • Paul says:

    Giving a speech at a luncheon gives her “business cred”??? Oh dream on.

  • Len Sacks says:

    She should go to China and stay there. She would do herself a big favor, but more importantly, do us a bigger favor. Only a complete idiot would see her speak, but then again we have plenty of them here.

  • Ken says:

    “but then again we have plenty of them here.”

    No argument here, look who we have in the White House.

  • micky says:

    Typical monnbat troll responses.
    Whatever any of you may think, it obviously sucks because the facts and invites speak for themselves.

    Why the hell would any of you go to listen to her speak anyway ? You never discusss issues or anything of relevance !

    “Oh, gee, I’m really interested to see what shes up to so we garner a position against her in case she runs ”
    nah, i’ll just make the standard typical generic run of the mill liberal asinine comments about her trailer park kids and her outfit.
    That’ll show em ! ! !”

    Palin has sat around for the last few months doing nothing and still managed to pull off better numbers than Pelosi.

    Yes Paul, she actually has some fiscal accomplishments in Alaska that some at the convention would like to hear about.

  • gene says:

    she’s white trash that should make her $ like the ho she is. I hate her.

  • Ken says:

    “she’s white trash that should make her $ like the ho she is. I hate her.”

    Gosh, why so threatened by a woman you claim is no threat. Your ignorance is showing guys.

  • PenniePan says:

    Palin and her riff raff family need to stay in Alaska and her idiot way of talking to people who care. I don’t.

  • Ken says:

    “I don’t.”

    Yet you spend so much of your pathetic life here telling everyone how much you don’t care.

    Quite telling.

  • Rope says:

    she’s white trash that should make her $ like the ho she is. I hate her.

    You “HATE” her? You don’t even know her, how can you or why would you hate. It always surprises me how one can hate without ever having met, spoken too, or got to know the person they hate. Unbelievably childish in my opinion!!!!!

    Symone maybe you should read the post again, she is being paid and she has over a thousand request. It’s quiet obvious there are a lot of “complete idiots” wanting to hear her speak. Oh and the good thing is she doesn’t need a teleprompter the size of Rhode Island to give these speeches.

    Would I like to hear her speak, YOU BETCHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Art says:

    Palin will only be as valuable as people’s interest in her. I think she has a short shelf life and after hearing the same speeches over and over, interest will die and when that happens, no $95 million.

  • lisab says:

    it does not really matter much for 2012, but it is a symptom of obama’s problem,

    obama’s campaign is bleeding money. candidates have re-election campaign staff, and obama is no exception. obama’s campaign is just not getting donations right now. of course, obama is not asking for money from billionaires right now, but … this is not good for obama. his “grass roots” is just not building a war chest. actually they are spending 9 dollars for every one coming in.

    now in congress the dems have done very well and the gop is not raising money nearly as fast. that indicates the dems may do better than expected in 2010

  • lisab says:

    just to be clear, the dems often raise more money for congress, but …

    right now they are raising money almost 3 to 2, which is unheard of, much of this was raised months ago when obama took office, but …

    the gop has catching up to do

  • micky says:

    “and her idiot way of talking to people”


  • micky says:


    All shes doing is what would be basically expected of anyone with her potential.
    She had some very bad advice during the campaign as to what venues/interviews to take.
    Shes going to take her self to the private sector and get some added background in areas needed. Shes clearly no idiot but does need a little exposure to some certain aspects of the field.
    I wouldnt be surprised at all if she ran for a seat in congress or ended up treasurer in the near future but I dont see another VP run as soon as 2012.
    Whatever, I wish her well. Her basic style of common sense could go a long way regardless of where she applies it.

  • Jane says:

    Until I really looked at this picture, I didn’t realize that Sarah Palin had such a witch’s hook in her nose.

  • micky says:

    why dont you write the DNC and see if thats a possible charachteristic that could be used against her.
    make sure you let us know what they tell you.
    I,m sure they’ll stick that one in their arsenal if she makes a run for it in 2012

  • DEO says:

    Palin might not even show up…maybe Meg will say they never got the invitation, like she did 5 times now….
    MAYBE Palin shows up to PAYING gigs…

    Sarah Palin-Tonya Harding 2012!

  • Rogue says:

    While some anonymous aide claims there are 950 requests for Palin to speak, he does not claim that all 950 are willing to pay six figures. Some are probably from religious and charitable organizations hoping that she will donate her time for a fundraiser (good luck with that – she’s already blown off several fundraisers). Others will retract their invitations when they hear a six figure price tag. Which is just as well, as there is no way she could give 950 speeches in the next year anyway. After that, her expiration date will cause a substantial decrease in her fees.

  • micky says:

    works both ways rogue.
    there could well be over 950 requests depending on the venues/forums that are viable. Since shes such a huge draw all over the world I’ll bet after a few appearances thosse numbers even grow to were as with Clinton she can pick and choose, name her price.
    Shes already blown off a few fundraisers, well, as you said, you can only do so much in one year, right ?

  • micky says:

    my boy wants to be a fighter pilot, you made his day.

  • kate says:

    micky heh. I want to be a fighter pilot!

  • Mindy says:


    How is that any different that the democrats that run this country now????
    Some of you seriously need Jesus in your lives!!!!!!!!!!

  • Gareeth says:

    Hey Jane, her hook nose goes with Obama’s witchy nose mole.

  • Jan says:

    Hell yeah, I’d love to hear her speak. OMG, it would be refreshing to hear a responsible person speak after seeing the irresponsible one who dreams of being a Hollywood star and a God (NOT). Obama is making us sick. There is no doubt, he will be gone in 2012. Even the ones who helped to install him are seeing what a con artist, crook, and liar he is now. If she could do for the lower 48 what she did for Alaska, we will be a strong and prosperous country again. Obama has destroyed the job market. Job seekers are confronted with a job market that is bleaker than ever. Employment prospects are still getting worse. He is the cause. He hurt blacks ever getting elected ever again. Their were so many good black candidates that were known, American, honorable, and worthy and they had to nominate a Marxist that they didn’t even vet. I don’t know if our country will last another three years unless they impeach him now and throw his butt back to Kenya.

  • Jan says:

    Hey Jane, I bet you are really disgusted with that witch mole on Obama’s face and how about that fat bubble butt of Michelle’s. Can you believe they have the nerve to plaster her all over magazines and doctor the pictures trying to re-invent her? How about Michelle’s resemblance to an ape? Is that not freaky? I bet they had to plant trees in the White House so she could hop from one to the other. Have you notice the oldest daughter and the way she walks? No lady there! Her arms hang down like, you know. Do you get the message here Jane, PenniePan, Gene, Jared, Len Sacks, Paul, Symone, Art, and Deo. If what I just wrote offends you, that is what you sound like except turned around. If you don’t like it done to you then, stop your own trash talk. There is no difference. All it is… is filth, trashy, hate, down right mean, and doesn’t serve a real purpose…get it. No you probably don’t.

  • ltabin says:

    sarah palin is hardly stupid. anyone who thinks youngest and most popular governor in the country when mccain picked her became that popular because of how she looked in blue jeans or something like that is a moron. all four candidates were flawed and frankly she was the least flawed.

    she isnt even right wing and certainly doesnt believe in creationism.

  • ltabin says:

    why is it that the media STILL is sliming palin? i think obama’s foolish ideas ie he can sweet talk the monstrous iranian regime into being reasonable and his total incompetence is more of a worry.

    i blame the media as much as him.
