OK, now we get it. Just post something about a celebrity and you’ll triple your page views instantly. So from now on, Illahee notes will go the way of the Drudge Report. That said, we got a lot of feedback on Ms. Palin. Many people suggested we invite her for laughs. The laughs wouldn’t come cheap, however. A reliable source understands that her speaking fee is $250,000. The conservative blog Blatherings claims that Palin has received around 1000 speaking requests. The responses to Blatherings’ Palin post are mostly snarky right and left jabs at either Palin or Obama, but a few individuals, on the right and the left, got it right: beyond the celebrity attraction, she doesn’t have much to offer.
