WASHINGTON (CNN)– Dinner with Sarah Palin for $63,500?
That's what the winner of an eBay auction is forking over to chow down with the former Alaska governor, her husband, Todd and five guests.
Seven people bid a total of 61 times, starting with an opening bid of $25,000. The winner bid 27 times before winning with the $63,500 bid.
The proceeds will go to "Ride 2 Recovery," a charity that provides wounded veterans with bicycles and organized rides to help in their mental and physical recovery.
"Todd and I are so happy to help such a worthy organization," Palin said September 10 on her Facebook page.
waste of money!! My word!
Palin/Romney 2012. They'll have their hands full trying to correct all of Obama's mistakes, but they can do it.
Fools and their money...
Must have been 7 people that are personal friends of hers that did the bidding. Maybe the winner was her husband.
It would be to bad if she didn't show up.
It's pretty pathetic if this person has nothing better to do with her $$ than to spend it having dinner with a moron! Gee she could do that for free with any right wing nut!
This just shows the stupidity of some.
I am a great admirer of Mrs. Palin I think she should consider serving us on a federal level.
Such a great and worthy organization will get the monies that this
charity auction as it was set up for.
The winner is being reported as a defense construction outfit from
Alabama, which I am sure that Sarah shouldn't have any problem having dinner with. Imagine the conversations they will have about
how to garner and lobby for defense work with the government.
I think the number two bidder would have made a better dinner companion and would not appear to be a set-up as the current
winner appears to be.
Number two bidder was Joe McGinniss, author and Palin critic.
Now that would have made for some stimulating dinner conversation.
I think she is former something! She abandoned the people of Alaska just to make money! A dinner with her at $0.65, I will likely sent my money to the bridge to nowhere project. I don't like quitters.
It would have been cheaper to rent Dumb and Dumber. Perhaps the funds could also be used for ESL courses for Palin.
I would have bid, but only if she promised not to talk.
I agree the money is for a good charity regardless of your opinion of Palin. The fact that only 7 people bid on this should speak for itself.
Don't forget.....they still have to pass the Sarah Palin background check before she will show up!
Oh man, I wish they would tell us who won! I think it may be Keith Olbermann, ha ha!
If I had the spare cash, I would spend the money to sit down with the Palins. It would be great to offer Sarah support, and to hear some of her stories. Its a wonderful thing to see not only a strong, beautiful woman, but also a woman who is not misdirected by power. What a rare and exciting person. Of course she gets attention. She doesn't fit into the molds that people wish she would. One of the first honest mavericks we are about to see.
It's cool to support our vets.....but the liberal haters will have a field day with this
Brig your own doggie bag to fit all her mindless ramblings in! I think she Gotcha!
I would have demanded much more before I agreed to have dinner with her.
I hope that her meal comes with crayons.
