(CNN) – Famed White House party crashers Tareq and Michaele Salahi are going from party crashers to guests of honor.

"President Obama's most unexpected guests" are slated to headline a party at Caesar's Palace nightclub on January 16, according to the event organizer's Web site.

The pair are reportedly being paid $5,000 total for the appearance, according to the New York Post. A spokesman for the event could not be reached to confirm that number.

    To all you Liberals out there: Rewarding these two losers is a lot like subsidizing losers unwilling to work or pay taxes! Kinda sucks doesn't it?

    The media gives them the power to be rewarded for such a thing....Unbelievable. If it was common folk we would have been wrestled to the ground and jailed

    It just shows how SHALLOW people are.

    These people should be SHUNNED, not partied with. And the people who will want to meet them? Tea Party Participants.

    and this the reason why people do the things they do – all the mistresses, reality show wannabes, whacko’s, all get compensation for bad behavior. It's sad that this is what America has come to. We root for the villain and vilify the good. What a shame!

    How do I commit a crime then profit form it by becoming a celebrity? Why did these people not get prosecuted? What the hell is wrong with this country? Time for change?

    I am planning a 15 person Los Vegas trip, and because of this news, we will not be staying at Ceasars anymore.

    There is only one answer to this and that is to boycott Ceasers Palace. This country has gone to hell in a handbasket and it is time to do something about it. All of these losers Salehis,Palins, Becks, Limbaughs, Hannity's, Ballon Boy Parents, Occtodumbmum,that have done nothing positive for society should have the smallest audience we can can give them. I would like to go to Vegas this year as i usually do and althought it is very little, I will not step foot in Ceasers and hope many more do the same. Seems you have to be a liar or a fraud to make tons of money in America these days

    It never ceases to amaze me how the Right-wingers so proudly display their ignorance, like blaming the party-crasher fiasco on the Obama Administration, when it was the fault of the Secret Service, which is NOT part of the Obama Administration. Sick sub-human retards.

    ...and I take it, that 5 grand is going to pay for their restitution for their little prank. Didn't the Judge say they couldn't profit from the publicity?

    We live in a very sick society. We won't pay our teachers more, but these crackpots get $5,000 a night for being party guests!
