Former Alaska Gov. and Vice Presidential wannabe Sarah Palin thinks what she has to say is so important that people should be willing to pay up to $100,000 to hear her speak.
But no line is forming to book her.
The New York Post reports that Palin’s lecture schedule of empty because some places are afraid to book her and others consider her a “blithering idiot.”
And the publisher who paid her a $7 million advance for her book is wondering how much it will lose on the gamble.
Reports the 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.”
Many big lecture venues are subscription series, “and they don’t want to tick people off,” said our source. “Palin is polarizing, and some subscribers might cancel if she’s on the lineup.” Other lecture buyers are universities, which have a leftist slant, and corporations, which dislike controversy.
“Palin is so uninteresting to so many groups — unless they are interested in moose hunting,” said our insider. “What does she have to say? She can’t even describe what she reads.”
