Will Sarah Palin accept an offer of $100,000 for charity?
A man who was denied the opportunity to bid on dinner with Sarah has made a counter offer:

In the great American spirit of never say die, here's my challenge: I will donate $100,000 to veterans' charities for a second dinner with Sarah Palin and four guests, this one on-the-record and taped so as to minimize misrepresentations. In the name of fair play, my list of invitees will include a subset of Rachel Maddow, Keith Olbermann, Thom Hartmann, Oprah Winfrey, James Carville, Randi Rhodes, Arianna Huffington, Frank Rich, Mudflats' Jeanne Devon, Jane Hamsher and Shannyn Moore. On her side, Sarah Palin may invite guests as well (how about Bill Kristol and Glenn Beck?). The only additional conditions are that the dinner/event last the entire four hours and questions asked are answered and discussed civilly. No filibustering, no third party prompts, just face-to-face honesty. Hostility by any invitee will be cause for removal. No discussion of children, Vogue, Katie Couric, The Enquirer, or Levi Johnston permitted.

1. Hahaha! I guess we'll see how serious she is about 'supporting the
troops'. I'm thinking this ain't gonna happen, but would I love to hear that dinner conversation!

5. He'd probably have a better chance if he offered to make the check payable to Sarah Palin.

9. An inquisition would be accurate if only one side was represented.
Sounds more like lively conversation to me.

11. Poor Sarah. Is this about Iraqi Vets or her? Can't she hold her own?
