The Exceptional Foundation is a new 501(c)3 serving individuals from age five through adulthood.” The Exceptional Foundation acknowledges that it is a new non-profit, and that if all goes as planned it wouldn’t begin to provide services until the Fall of 2011. As reported in my April 7, 2011 post, I contacted the Exceptional Foundation to learn more about the foundation and Palin’s appearance. On the 7th I was only able to speak with the receptionist. However on the 8th, Mr. Callahan, the founder, returned my call, and provided some additional information. He reported:

1. The Exceptional Foundation has not yet been approved by the IRS as a charitable foundation. The application was not submitted until “early March”. With three weeks before the Palin event, it is unclear whether they will receive the “letter of determination” from the IRS before the event. Thus, Palin agreed to give her speech regardless of whether the organization was in fact considered by the IRS to be a charitable organization.

2. The Exceptional Foundation had approached Sarah Palin with four different proposals for appearing to help the foundation, each of which was rejected.

3. It wasn’t until the Exceptional Foundation agreed to pay her fee of $100,000.00 that the Empress agreed to come.

4. The Exceptional Foundation is attempting to raise start up capital for the foundation, and if for any reason the money is not raised, Mr. Callahan will be personally responsible for the debt.

Put me down for a table. Somebody has to pay Sarah's $100,000.00 fee for speaking at a NON-PROFIT affair. Oh, but because she is uniquely qualified to address this group, I know that she will be donating her fee back to the group.

Yea, the good cause was the $100,000.00 that she got paid for an hours work.

I hardly think that getting $100,000.00 for an hour's work is work--especially when you are accepting it from a so-called non-profit organization. I doubt that anything that Palin does would be objectionable to you. Of course, old Sarah is sliding out of the political scene but she got from it what she wanted and that was millions of dollars from suckers like you. You better find yourself another teabagger candidate to vote for in the next electionl since Sarah has drank the CoolAid and is out spending your money and laughing while she spends it. How does it feel to be a royal sucker taken in by a total airhead?

She's not laughing a bit, that's what she does for a living like many other's, you could only wish you could live Her life and acquire Her values.

The next sucker play will be when Obama sucker's people like you in again, and you give him your vote because you have drank way to much of the cool aid.

"She's not laughing a bit, that's what she does for a living like many other's, you could only wish you could live Her life and acquire Her values."

Her values are in the gutter and her life is a disaster--a husband that is running around with eveery woman in town, a daughter that has an out-of-wedlock child, scorned by thousands of voters who expected her to fulfill her term as Governor rather than abruptly resigning to go on a speaking and book tour, dozens of charges for mis-appropriating funds from the Alaska treasury to pay for airplane flights and expensive meals and hotel suites in New York and elsewhere for her entire family which she had to reluctantly reimburse a token back to Alaska in order to avoid an even more embarrassing situation, documented proof that she tried to introduce legislation that the purchase of a snowmobile for running the Iditerod should be tax exempt so her husband could save a few bucks on his many snowmobiles, her forcing a waver while Mayor of Wasilla so that she and her husband could build an outbuilding closer to the property line than the zoning allowed and, on and on. Yes, FastFred--raise your kids to follow her example if that life style is what you consider exemplary. Sarah is just the role model to hold up to them if what you want them to know is that the end justifies the means.

Fast Fred....Give me a Break is telling the absolute truth. You are not the only one taken in by Sarah, most Alaskans were fooled by her too. She is the biggest scam artist in political history and wouldn't give you the time of day unless you gave her some money.

Fred, most people don't require payment for a good cause, specifically one "near and dear to their heart". Advocates for special needs NEVER accept payment to help raise money for charity. Sarah is one of a kind and should be ashamed of herself,

Fast Fred seems to forget the true meaning of Charity. When the Gulf Coast was hit by the Gulf Oil Spill, Jimmy Buffett and other entertainers put on shows for free to help the folks down here--they accepted no money for their time even though they could have made hundreds of thousands of dollars by selling tickets. When it comes to any rightwing conservative, Fast Fred turns a blind-eye to any dispicable thing they do.

I don't get taken in by any one "period", in your opinion she's a scam artist, other than that she's actually a down to earth individual who knows what she wants and goes after it.
