Dinner With Sarah Palin? Not If High Bidder Is Unsuitable “Based on Her [Palin’s] Subjective Standards of Suitability, Professionalism, Background and Other Factors”

Through the nonprofit charity Ride 2 Recovery Alaska’s former governor Sarah Palin is auctioning a dinner for five with Sarah and Todd Palin.  Ride 2 Recovery works to “improve the health and wellness of wounded warriors by providing a life changing experience that can impact their lives forever.”

However, adversaries of Sarah Palin need not bid on the event (with the $25,000 minimum opening bid) listed on eBay, as Palin is unlikely to grant her approval or agree to show up and meet with the winner(s) of the dinner … (Keith Olbermann, Jon Stewart and David Letterman are probably out of the running).

The following is the eBay auction for dinner with Sarah Palin, along with DETAILED rules of acceptance.  Remember, the Value is listed at Priceless, so Sarah Palin fans should bid high and bid often …  ;~)

Just a thought, but could this be some publicist’s weak attempt at improving Sarah Palin’s fading reputation on the backs of wounded military personnel and her son Track Palin?

Open Letter to Sarah Palin

Sarah Palin

Sarah Palin

It has now been a little over a week since your resignation as governor of Alaska, and thankfully you haven’t made many recent headlines. It seems America has been too busy discussing race relations, health care, and the economy to notice you. How refreshing!

As a 17-year-old American who has to live in this country for probably the next 80-90 years, I formally request that you pack your bags and swim across to Russia. After all, it must be close enough if you can see it from your house. I have never seen, nor have I ever heard of, a politician less qualified and less engaged than you are, and I want you to leave politics for good before you start giving the impression to other politicians that somehow these deficiencies are acceptable.

It’s not so much that you and I see two different Americas, or that we just have different perceptions of the same core American ideals. It’s that you fundamentally misunderstand America’s ideals. Every time you talk about freedom, or the future, or “the wisdom of the people,” I only have one question: what the hell are you trying to say?

The Real Story Behind Palin’s Bombshell

Alaska Governor Sarah Palin campaigned for Georgia Senator Saxby Chambliss last year.

Alaska Governor Sarah Palin campaigned for Georgia Senator Saxby Chambliss last year.

Anyone who is in any way surprised by Sarah Palin’s announcement today that she will not be seeking re-election, and, even more significantly, is stepping down as Governor of Alaska, has not been paying close attention. The signs have been everywhere.

Palin has absolutely zero interest in running the State of Alaska. She steadfastly refused to live in Juneau after her first year there, had the gall to charge the state for residing at her home in Wasilla 600 miles away, and she basically mailed in her performance as the state’s top administrator during Alaska’s most recent legislative session. She has alienated virtually all the key legislators in her own party — that’s right, Republicans — and had failed to move any key legislation forward since her return to Alaska from the national campaign trail last November.

In fact, her bizarre appointment for Attorney General, Wayne Anthony Ross, was rejected nearly unanimously by the state legislature — a first in Alaskan history. Even in respect to energy policy, her supposed bailiwick, she has been categorically ineffective. When I asked those in-the-know what role Palin had played in putting together the recent pipeline deal between TransCanada and Exxon, their response was simple: “None.”

None. That about sums up Palin’s accomplishments as Governor of the Last Frontier.

What’s Ahead For Gov. Palin? Seven Challenges

Gov. Sarah Palin, back from the campaign trail, faces a changed landscape in Alaska.

Gov. Sarah Palin, back from the campaign trail, faces a changed landscape in Alaska.

It appears that Alaska Governor Sarah Palin will probably be back on the national scene in two years campaigning as the Republican candidate in the 2012 presidential election.  We here at the Sarah Palin Truth Squad have decided to continue posting information about Governor Palin in anticipation of that race.  Today the Anchorage Daily News published the following article by Tom Kizzia on the political future of Gov. Palin.

For two months she basked — and sizzled — in the world’s hottest celebrity spotlight. Now Sarah Palin has come home to begin the last two years of her term as governor of Alaska.

Everything has changed: Palin’s personal horizon, her relations with the state’s other elected officials, the public’s sense of who she is.

Palin returned to her office Friday amid a brutal crossfire between detractors and defenders in the McCain camp. At the same time, however, a new national poll said 64 percent of Republicans consider her their top choice to run for president in 2012.
