Average, bootstrappy hockey mom expects to be treated as royalty by cash-strapped university run by gpuke-happy nimwits. Its in her contract. Which we know, even though the uni tried to shred the damn thing.
A group of students at California State University Stanislaus retrieved five pages of the contract from a campus trash bin last Friday after hearing administrators were engaged in shredding documents. Palin's appearance has generated controversy for speaking at a publicly funded university while not disclosing her speaking fee.Besides first-class airfare for two and like totally AWESOME bendy-straws, Princess Pinenut’s contract also calls for chauffered SUVs or black towncars, and her luxury hotel rooms must include high-speed internet, a laptop, and a printer preloaded with paper.
The contract detailed the former Alaska governor's requirements for her visit, including first-class flights from Anchorage to California — if she flies commercial. If not, "the private aircraft MUST BE a Lear 60 or larger," the contract specifies.
Palin also must be provided with a suite and two single rooms in a deluxe hotel near the campus. During her speech, her lectern must be stocked with two water bottles and bendable straws.
The document, dated March 16, does not include compensation details for Palin, who commands speaking fees as high as $100,000.
The Dip of Denali.
