Fox News host Glenn Beck says he will donate his speaking fee for a pricey rally with former Alaska GOP Gov. Sarah Palin on the anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
Beck and Palin had drawn criticism over the planned rally in Anchorage, Alaska, where tickets start at $65 and run as high as $200 for a VIP package that offer a chance to meet the tea party stars.
“Glenn had always intended to donate the speaking fee from the event on Saturday, September 11th in Alaska to Special Operations Warrior Foundation. Governor Palin is not and was never going to receive a fee for introducing Glenn at this event,” a Beck spokesman told POLITICO.
Really? Because The Quitter never mentioned the Special Operations Warrior Foundation in her original Facebook post.
Kind of a curious omission, isn’t it?
Event promoter Christopher Cox says the 9/11 date is a coincidence. Cox originally eyed Sept. 4, but didn’t want to compete with the Alaska State Fair.
Hmmm. If the date is a coincidence, why would Beck “always intend” to donate his fee? And why would The Quitter write,
I can think of no better way to commemorate 9/11 than to gather with patriots who will “never forget.”
Time for Sullivan to add this one to his “Odd Lies of Sarah Palin” Part MCXVII.
