    Is Sarah Becoming A Diva?

    If the following turns out to be true I may lose some respect for Sarah Palin. I understand asking for money and even first class tickets but she may be pushing it. Here's an excerpt:

    First-class commercial air travel for two or a private jet -- "must be a Lear 60 or larger" -- from Alaska to California and back. A deluxe hotel suite "registered under an alias." And two unopened bottles of still water with "bendable straws."

    Here's the link for the full story:

    I'm really tired of Palin. She was impressive at first, but she seems to be a one-trick pony. She's good at rallies, but I don't think I'd ever vote for her as president. She's getting old, and her support of McCain, who I have lost all respect for, was a defining moment for me.

    Before you start throwing people under the bus lets compare apples to apples, what do the libs like slick Willie and Al Gore get for their speaking tours. I'm sure they don't do it for nothing. As far as Palin endorsing McCain, she would not be the celeb she is if it wasn't for him so she kind of owes him an endorsement.

    Everybody has their own self-interest and everybody has a price...

    Her price was rather higher than most of us here could demand.

    What is wrong, in particular, with her taking advantage of a situation that allowed her to enrich herself and better prepare for her children's future?

    That's how government works, isn't it? McCain gave her a start, and now she owes him. Well, first of all, McCain's crew more or less threw HER under the bus during the campaign. And now McCain is for amnesty - he's a RINO, his wife is pro-abortion and his daughter is a left-wing radical who thinks her father is a fossil, and old people should just go away. And Palin is stumping for him, so that hurts her credibility.

    I have nothing against her making money - she's already a millionaire, mostly because of her book and speaking tours. I just don't think she's that believable any more. I think her humility went away as soon as she got a taste of real politics.

    +1 There are those in here, and out there who firmly belive that Sarha is going to be the next POTUS. You betcha!
    When I see Sarah on the news, or even metioned, the image of Tina Fey, and the Curric interview comes to mind. "I can see Russia from my house".
    I don't take Sarah as a serious contender. Sarha Palin is captilizing on their newly minted celebraty status.

    Sarha should milk these right wing idiots for all they have. I would, and laugh all the way to the bank.

    The right wingers havn't had a good image to worship, ever since Regan. IMO, this is only a flash in the pan. The might have to wait for a very long time for another hero.

    Hopefully, the GOP can find someone to defeat Barry. IMO he/she will distance themselves from the right wing of the party. Just to many loose cannons to contend with.

    Those aren't necessarily unreasonable requests. Let's take them one at a time, shall we?

    Money- payment for services is standard in a capitolist society
    air fare- she has to get there and it is standard
    a certain size plane- now admittedly, I know nothing about airplanes but maybe she's afraid of little planes or something
    registered under an alias- she'd be mobbed otherwise
    unopened water bottles- public speakers need water
    bendable straws- she can easily drink and still look like a lady and not dump water on herself.

    I mean- I like her but I don't LOVE her. But jeez- cut her some slack!

    There seem to be very few celebrities that don't get ripped apart under the microscope.
    Nothing is new here.
    If you take a stand that is unpopular or different from the accepted mainstream, you are pretty sure to be criticied for it.
    It makes it hard to sift through and find the truth.

    To answer the airplane question, the lear 60 minimum type is six to eight passenger jet, with the range of at least 2.600 miles. It will be crewed by two high time professional pilots.
    The later Senator & super libtard Paul Wellstone chartered a turboprop crewed by two unqualifed pilots. These two had failed several fight checks. They were confused on a instrument approach, stalled the wings, entered a spin, crashed and burned. The aircraft was capable, the pilots didn't know how to fly it.
    Mrs Palin would rather not that happen to her and entourage. I can't blame her.
