YET PEOPLE THINK SHE'LL GIVE UP THE DIVA GIG TO CAMPAIGN IN IOWA? :

Sarah Palin contract demands 'Lear 60 jet' and 'bendable straws': Sarah Palin's contract discovered by two students to speak at Stanislaus college includes private jet and expensive hotels (Ed Pilkington, 4/14/10, guardian.co.uk)

[D]etails include demands that she have two bottles of still water and bendable straws placed near the lectern from which she delivers her speeches; that she be flown from her home in Alaska to wherever the event takes place on first-class commercial tickets or in a private jet of at least the size of a Lear 60; and that she be driven from the airport to the venue in professionally licensed SUVs or, failing that, in black town cars.

Her hotel room must be booked under an alias, for security reasons, and must include a one-bedroom suite and two single rooms. There must be a laptop computer and printer fully charged with paper in the room. And the hotel must be rated as deluxe.

We now know such arcane details of the life of Sarah Palin in her new incarnation as megastar courtesy of two intrepid college students at Stanislaus, a branch of California State University in Turlock, California.
