From the article:
Cathy Maples of Huntsville, Alabama, on Friday won the dinner in an Internet
auction, which was a benefit for a charity that aids wounded veterans.
Palin offered the dinner as part of the charity auction on eBay for the Ride
2 Recovery program, which supports wounded veterans through cycling
Yet, despite this, some are not pleased.
From a Yahoo comments board:
Had Mrs. Palin been like Al Gore, his boss, Bill Clinton or rabid capitalist, Michael Moore, and collected a HUGE sum of cash for a speaking tour, then maybe that would have been more acceptable. I guess charities have run their course.
Firstly, there is far too much USA news on this site. Its supposed to be a
Canadian news site. Secondly, Canadians are sick & tired of hearing about
this stupid btch. -Ensign
Gee, some people like wearing trailer trash on their sleeves. I know I can't speak for Ensign- nor would I want to- but Sarah Palin would be a welcome change from the lame-duck fellow who sold out the Poles not too long ago.
Wow, corruption and backroom deals.
No, charity. Read the article. It even says so.
I suppose some people can never catch a break.
