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?
