November 30, 2009 Synopsis of Governor Palin’s Accomplishments

Posted by Ron Devito on November 30, 2009

Governor Palin’s accomplishments over the past two months distill to four core areas: book tour, media Interviews, commercial speaking engagements, and communicating with us via Facebook Notes and Tweets.

Going Rogue Book Tour

Going Rogue: An American Life was released on Tuesday, November 17, 2009. The book had already earned number one positions in pre-order sales at both Amazon and Barnes & Noble. The tour began on Wednesday, November 18 in Grand Rapids, MI — the state for which McCain campaign aides said Governor Palin was “going rogue” when she issued a statement that she wanted to continue campaigning there — and the basis of the book’s title. The tour moved east, then south, stopping for Thanksgiving and is now underway once more. The book tour will stop in the western half of the United States, with a brief return east and conclude on December 10. Retail sales of Going Rogue exceeded 700,000 during the first week of the tour.

For those unable to make a signing for whatever reason, a $100 donation to either SarahPAC or the Republican Governors Association will earn you a signed copy — a sweet deal, considering that people are spending $500 or more to travel to signing events.

Media Interviews

Concomitant with the book tour, Governor Palin conducted interviews with Oprah Winfrey, Barbara Walters, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck, Bill O’Reilly, Greta Van Susteren, Eddie Burke, among others.

Commercial Speaking Engagements

Governor Palin addressed the Wisconsin Right to Life group on November 6, 2009. She will be speaking to student at the College of the Ozarks on citizenship, involvement and patriotism on December 2, 2009; the Salina, KS Chamber of Commerce on February 5, 2010, the National Tea Party Convention on February 6, 2010, and a Sierra Cascade Logging Conference on February 8, 2010.

These are Washington Speakers Bureau speeches, which means there is a prohibition on media coverage and recording of the content for dissemination. Professional reporters and some bloggers have attached a negative connotation to this prohibition, but these are commercial, copyrighted speeches, and re-broadcasting them diminishes the value of them.

Facebook and Twitter

Governor Palin has published Facebook Notes on health care, energy independence, and national security during these past two months. One item, “Drill” was published in National Review. Governor Palin now has well over 1 million supporters on Facebook; her new Twitter account SarahPalinUSA has nearly 32,000 followers. Her old Twitter account, AKGovSarahPalin was decommissioned. This author has archived Tweets from that account.

New York post doesn’t understand speaking engagements… it seems.

Posted by Ron Devito on September 30, 2009

When you know you are in a losing streak, you take out your opponent via the knees right?

Well the New York Post, a liberal rag of mindless entertainment, decided to write a “I Hate Palin because I don’t think she can sell herself and I think she is dumb” article again. I think that the New York Post and their writers are scared that they are losing money… and have to print this drivel to get some money in.

What cracks me up is how the NY Post is just frothing at the mouth concerning the speaking circuit and the amount of one hundred thousand (100,000) per speaking engagement, which if you think about it really isn’t that much.

Per NY Post:

Palin’s bookers are said to be asking for $100,000 per speech, but an industry expert tells Page Six: “The big lecture buyers in the US are paralyzed with fear about booking her, basically because they think she is a blithering idiot.”

Now, seeing this, we all understand that speaking engagements are going to “cost”. But if you book a building, with around 1500 seats would be about 67.00 a piece. BUT since you have to have money to rent the building which could be 25,000 for a day, which would cost in the amount of 17.00, I don’t see how this would be a problem? People pull out 100 dollars for just about anything anymore. So charging 100 to 150 dollars per speaking engagement, per person really isn’t that bad.

Also, let us talk about Speaking Engagements that include a nice dinner. Everyone knows you buy the plate before hand for whatever speaking engagement it is. So let’s say you want to hear Sarah at one of these. It is all priced out via the building it would be in, the price of employees, food and set up as well as the strip down and the speakers cost as well as the commission. Well we have all seen these types of dinners where you can pay up and including ten thousand (10,000) dollars per plate! So a room for 500 people. You have 100,000 for speaker, 50,000 for food and service, 15,000 to rent facility. So round it up to 200,000 thousand for cost of all and the cost of the plate for the Dinner Speaking Engagement is a whopping 500.00 dollars per person!

Whoa. I think the New York Post should have thought this through before they typed their smear article out.
