55848942 There was none.  I hate being a killjoy for Politico’s Jonathan Martin, I really do.  I also feel dirty about citing an anonymous source since that practice was pretty well slammed tonight, but the person didn’t want to go on the record.  The person I spoke with said that Sarah Palin did not take a speaker’s fee for the Republican Party of Iowa’s Ronald Reagan Dinner tonight in Des Moines.  I confirmed that with Danielle Plogmann, the Iowa GOP’s Communications Director.  Plogmann said, “She did not take a speaker’s fee, we were happy to have her come out to support our party and our candidates.”

They had 135 tables with each table producing $1000 (some were discounted for candidates).  So they took in at least $100K tonight, minus room rental and meals.  Not too shabby.

Now let the 2012 speculation begin… she spoke for the Iowa GOP… for FREE?!?!?!

  1. Glad you got to go see Sarah Palin last night, Shane, would loved to have gone…thanks for the posts and the pictures….I don’t know where she fits into politics, but I surely like what she is saying and only know I wish there were a LOT more politicians like her out there.

  2. Excellent speech by Sarah Palin, the next president of the United States and the first woman who will soon defeat a first black potus. By the way, have you read of an article about a demonstration in Chicago against Beck and Palin demonizing them as Hitlers??? Apparently, they are not from Chicago but one of them was found to be from Missouri that was brought with free hotels and air fare tickets by Obama PAC, a Chicago style political Mafia trying to destroy the credentials of Palin.
