Things are NOT LOOKING GOOD for the Going Rogue: An American Life book tour! Part of the whole deal with these things, the book things, is that you get to sound out the words from the books, like into a microphone, and then you get $100,000. This is exactly what Sarah Palin was promised. Except no one is paying Sarah Palin $100,000 to sound out the garbage that she Scotch-taped to an index card and mailed to HarperCollins the other day. “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.'”
Uhh, well, contradiction of the century, book people: Would a BLITHERING IDIOT know the fine points of moose-hunting?
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.”
Hey hypocrite guy (h/t thesaurus.com): she is offering to do exactly that for $100,000!!
