(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.

    Here we go. We all knew at some point their bad behavior was going to be rewarded. This only inspires other idiots who want $$ or 15 minutes of fame to do the next outlandish prank. How sad.

    What a joke. Why would anyone pay to have these two buffoons attend their party? People of this country have their heads up the butts. Our values have been dropping so fast it's almost scarey

  7. all the news that's fit to omit

    Great, this further proves that crime indeed pays.

    Maybe the THIRD guy that YOU SHEEP DON'T KNOW ABOUT will get a show on NBC?

    Can't protect their own WH, but they expect us to think they can protect the whole uh, uh, uh, uh COUNTRY?

    Of course, the system worked.

    And the point of this article on "Political Ticker" would be?

    I thought you guys knew and understood what your framework meant.

    Give me a gig like that – I'm unusual, and I could sure use the money. Why on earth make these two idiots any more famous over a stupid stunt.

    Why would you pay a bunch of party crashers 5,000 to attend? They aren't famous they are merely wanna bees.

    Caesars is condoning the breaking of the law by paying these people to host a party. Why not just pay John Walker Lindh to host a party also? I will never again go to Caesars. The Salahis should be prosecuted for what they did not feted.

    Why does it not surprise me?!? Justice will be if a court order is place on any earnings they make to pay all the small businesses they stole from. Why can't they go away.............maybe the "Balloon Boy"s" dad can help..........

    This entire story has been politically hyped to the point of ridiculous. If anyone followed the full information about what occurred, they would know that this couple did not "crash" the party but had very good reason to believe that they were going to be on the guest list. They misunderstood last minute information from someone who was attempting to get them into at least one of several events.

    However, we no longer care about truth, justice or the American way. All we get anymore is politics, politics, politics. Twist, distort, accuse, blame...blah, blah, blah. The 24 hour news cycle will eventually destroy us all. God help us!

    They should be the featured guests at the Grey-Bar Hotel.

    I wonder if they'll use their appearance fees to pay off any of their $100,000s of outstanding debts.

    Actually, I don't wonder about this at all.

    HELPFUL HINT to all vendors, hotellers, and other local Las Vegas service providers, re: Salahis – cash only.

    This is EXACTLY why these clowns should have been arrested and jailed.

    How many of us clairvoyantly pointed out that these two would end up cashing in from their WH crashing experience? Tons of us. There's no shame left in this world, and apparently people who do wrong if they are the right shade can get away with things that the average person would be serving time for, AND they get to cash in on their wrongdoing to boot. One can only hope that with the money they are making off of their little 'escapade' they will pay off their debtors and stop handing out fake Rolexs/Pateks watches.

    Yes, I heard about the 'brother' that also crashed that evening. Let's see how HE fares.
