Sarah Palin has been chosen to give the keynote address at a fundraising function for West Hills College. The small community college main campus is located in Coalinga, CA. The speech will take place in Lemoore, California where there is a newer satellite campus.
According to sources, Palin will be paid $115K for her speech, and excitement is building as all the $25,000 tickets have been sold. Republican money is tied to Agribusiness in these parts.
I thought it was interesting that a student at the college voiced hope that Sarah Palin's appearance might generate funds for student programs at the college. Unfortunately, the purpose of the fundraiser seems to be to keep a sports arena staffed and maintained.
During her speech maybe Sarah will tell the story about how she built the Sports Complex when she was mayor of Wasilla. But I bet she won't talk about the fact that the land she built the complex on didn't belong to the city and that unraveling the title left Wasilla with 20 million dollars of debt. Read about it here. Nor will she mention that her home has many of the same features and materials that were incorporated into the Sports Complex.
I don't expect Sarah to mention anything about education. That doesn't seem to be something that she even pushes for her children. Nor will she offer any solutions for students on how to pay for an ever-increasing college education, either.
But I'll bet she will criticize the Obama administration more than once and reiterate how the lamestream media and Democrats are picking on her. In other words, it's probably going to be another SOSDV #sameoldspeechdifferentvenue.
