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.
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.
