Auction for Dinner With Sarah Palin Starts at $25,000


Bidding for "Private Dinner for Five with Sarah Palin" on eBay starts at $25,000. It's for the Ride 2 Recovery charity. Understandably, there's a background check. But please to note some of the absurd conditions: if you do indeed win the auction, you pay for dinner, and Palin can bring up to three guests of her own(!). For the sake of posterity, the terms and conditions:

A background check for all attendees is mandatory. Failure to pass the background check will result in the winner forfeiting the experience and a refund given. The dinner experience with Sarah Palin will take place at a site to be determined and at a mutually agreed upon time and date to be determined by Ms. Palin and the winning bidder. Ms Palin may bring up to three guests of her own. The dinner will be paid for by the seller. There are no age restrictions but anyone under 16-years-old must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. Winner may take personal photos and allowed to bring one item of reasonable size i.e. no larger than what can be carried by hand (t-shirts, books, magazines, etc.) The decision to sign the item will ultimately be up to Ms. Palin. Respect for Ms. Palin and her guest(s) is expected at all times. Inappropriate behavior will result in the conclusion of the experience with no refund.

Dinner shall last no more than four hours, but could be less, in the sole discretion of Sarah Palin.* Governor Palin reserves the right to refuse dinner with a winning bidder if, in her sole discretion, the winning bidder is not a suitable bidder based on her subjective standards of suitability, professionalism, background and other factors. In the event the high bidder is rejected for this reason, the high bidder's bid will be refunded, if paid, and the next highest bidder shall be notified, and thereafter, until a suitable match is determined.

    For $25,000 I want Sarah Palin to cook ME dinner. The moose chili will do. It is for charity after all.

    Just a point of clarification,

    If you re-read the "conditions", it states that the Seller, not the Buyer, pays for the Dinner. I assume this is Ms. Palin or her representative who is running this, not the person winning the auction (who would not be the Seller, but the Buyer).

    "The dinner will be paid for by the seller."

    Sounds like Sarah Palin pays for dinner, not the winning bidder.

    Hey, that says the dinner will be paid for by the seller, not the bidder. Not that the other restrictions aren't nutty.

    Reasonable size? I guess we can't bring our stuffed moose for her to sign. Woe.

    Does this include an opportunity to knock up Bristol?
