So what? Who's forcing anyone to pay for these demands? Compare them to other celebrities and you'll see Palin's demands are tame.

Those bendable straws are so hard to get and so expensive.

pre-determined questions? it's easy to speak when you know the questions beforehand. How about putting a little challenge for that $75,000 your taking from people. Nothing more than publicity, just like Glenn Beck's rally.

Other people have THEIR performance riders, she has hers. "Here's what the celebrity requires - if you don't like it, don't buy it."

Besides, others have LOTS worse listed in theirs than she has listed in hers.

Even her fellow Alaskans agree with you about that.

"Rasmussen: Palin’s favorable rating now negative in … Alaska!"

A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of likely voters in the state finds that just 41% say they would vote for the former Alaska governor if she ran for president in 2012.

Forty-eight percent (48%) say they would not vote for Palin, and 11% more are undecided.

Alaska voters are almost evenly divided in their views of Palin. Forty-nine percent (49%) view her at least somewhat favorably, while 50% share an unfavorable opinion of her.

This includes 31% who regard her Very Favorably and 37% with a Very Unfavorable view.

Perhaps this can be explained in part by the feeling that the ex-governor who became Republican John McCain’s surprise running mate in the 2008 presidential campaign is bad for Alaska’s image.

Thirty-eight percent (38%) say Palin’s views and activities reflect positively on Alaska’s image, but 45% think they reflect negatively on the state. Twelve percent (12%) say they have no impact.

Given all of the hate propaganda directed against her, they is quite an accomplishment for her. Just think how popular that she would be if the media treated her in an even-handed manner.

You are SUCH a comedian!

"Sarah Palin was photographed in Hawaii wearing a 'McCain for President' visor, but she had blacked out the letters of her former running mate's name. She was going to black out all of it, but halfway through, she quit." -Seth Meyers

"It's a great day for Sarah Palin. She was hired as a commentator for Fox News. She signed a multi-year contract, which means she'll probably quit after a year." -Craig Ferguson

"Sarah Palin, former governor of Alaska, is going to be part of the Fox News team. So, yeah. Finally, finally, her years of reading all those newspapers and magazines have really paid off. This should balance things out over there at Fox News. I can see that coming from my house." -David Letterman

"Some critics are saying that Palin won't last on Fox because she's an over-emotional woman who gets the facts wrong. But I disagree. It's working great for Glenn Beck, so she'll be fine." -Craig Ferguson

"Sarah Palin's book was number one on Amazon.com . Stephen King actually had the number two book. Very scary new book called 'Sarah Palin Becomes President.'" -Jimmy Kimmel

As usual for a lib... long winded and short on facts.
If you want to see a dark comedy (pun intended) look no further than the white house.
