Worth every penny of it. I would rather see it go to her than to someone, or someplace thats hates us like Messeeco. I would pay her 100.00 for one of those autographed pictures of her in that red/wht/+blue bikini...

I don't have a dog in this fight, but I would really be interested if there was a way to determine just how much money would have been raised if Sarah Palin was not the featured guest speaker. If the majority of the donations can be attributed to her appearance, it seems to me like it was $75k very well spent, although I don't how how anyone can justify receiving that much money (see what Bill Clinton makes for speaking engagements) just for giving a speech. It's not as if they are "teaching" people how to be rich like them.
Anyway, if that is indeed the case, the detractors just make themselves look petty and very, very partisan; and do not consider what is best for their place of higher learning.
