Palin Fan Pays $63,500 for Dinner

palin-norfest.thumbnail.jpgCathy Maples, a spunky stalker fan of Sarah Palin, paid $63,500 in a charity eBay auction to dine with former Alaska governor Sarah Palin. The auction will benefit Ride to Recovery, a charity for service men and women disabled in the Iraqi war. Maples of Huntsville, Alabama owns a defense contracting business, so I guess what comes around goes around.

It won’t be Maples’ first time meeting ex-Gov GILF. Oh no, this granny is really a huge fan!

The first time the two met was at a fundraiser in North Carolina during the presidential campaign. The second time was this July in Alaska when Maples took her grandson, family members and friends to Alaska as a graduation present. The Hunstville Times reports:

Maples, who said "persistent is something they say about me," made several phone calls trying to see Palin. Finally, Todd Palin himself called her to coordinate the meeting, which came just after Palin announced she was resigning as governor.

The couple spent about 15 minutes with Maples’ group at the Anchorage airport, and Palin posed for pictures with everyone.

The eBay auction terms prohibit the winner from reporting on or posting pictures of the Palin dinner, so don’t expect Cathy Maples’ Facebook page to be filled with glowing reports. In anticipation of the meal, Maples told the Huntsville Times his feelings about sassy Sarah:

I like her morals, and I believe she loves America and would like to do what is best for America. She doesn’t compromise her morals for votes. That’s very unusual in a politician.

Maples beat out author/Palin critic Joe McGinnis who had bid over $60,000 for the dubious dining privilege. Since Palin had veto power over the winner, it seems unlikely she would have agreed to break bread with him anyway.

Palin has got to be disappointed. I’m sure she expected millions.


rafflaw | Sunday September 20, 2009 05:04 pm 2

What a huge waste of money. $63,000 to speak with someone who is as dumb as a rock does not sound like money well spent. She could have saved some money and bought a meeting with Tina Fey playing Palin.

Glad the money will go to help vets but there’s something very sick about this.

Good Lord. What happened?

In 1973, Kristol received a B.A. from Harvard, graduating magna cum laude in three years. In 1976, he worked as deputy issues director for Patrick Moynihan’s New York Democratic primary campaign for a U.S. Senate seat. Kristol received a Ph.D. in government, also from Harvard, in 1979.

Did he work with Lawrence McDonnell???

This auction was completely rigged, as Keith Olbermann demonstrated on his program when he tried to register to bid when his guest was Shannyn Moore. Only bidders “acceptable to the donor” were permitted, first of all.

Secondly, two donors were not allowed to bid through the end of the auction because they weren’t acceptable to Palin. Finally, the location of the event was moved from Alaska to Alabama before the auction even closed, making it much more convenient for the eventual winner to attend without having to travel.

Rigged by a grifter, just like Palin’s entire political career.

Mudflats has the whole story.

So why the hell do you care? It’s her money and she can do with it what she wants.

Just like liberal god John Edwards can spend his money on who he wants, right?

it’s probably important to note that there are many people in this country who register in the political party of their parents upon turning 18. I’m an Nth generation Republican (or should have been). In my case, I may be the first registered Dem. on both sides for well over a century. Suffice it to say that being Republican was kinda automatic in this context.

In 1973, Kristol received a B.A. from Harvard, graduating magna cum laude

At Harvard they grant “cum laude,”"magna” and “summa” to something like 67% of the graduating class. So it’s not as big an honor as one might think.
