Well, first because Sarah the grifter Palin is involved, but also because of this:
$4.95 per person? You got Palin, Laura Bush, Terry Bradshaw, Bill O'Reilly, etc. You're renting out Philips Arena (home of the NBA Hawks) and you're charging 5 bucks? Or $20 for the whole gang? Smells like everyone involved has a book to sell.
And all the participants seem to be speaking on subjects that were just assigned randomly.
Laura Bush on "Personal Empowerment?"
Overcoming obstacles. Really. Unless the obstacles are your own dumbness, laziness and willful ignorance, I don't really see what she knows about overcoming obstacles. I mean, she's not exactly a "when the going gets tough" person. When the going got tough in Alaska, she up and quit. Any obstacle that can't be overcome with a wink a smile and a folksy "you betcha!" is probably not going to be overcome by Ms. Palin.
In the world of football, few players have come close to Terry Bradshaw's proven ability to build and lead winning teams.
Ben Stein's career has covered the gamut – from acting and game shows to political speech writing and social commentary. And he's done it with a wry style that has made him a national celebrity.
Les Brown? Without his band of Renown?
You know, it really seems shady that your road to success was teaching others to be successful. How does one become an inspiring motivational speaker without having first been successful in some other field? It doesn't make sense. How do you get that first gig?
Hey, some guy who was born poor and is apparently not well-educated wants to know if we'd like to hire him as a motivational speaker.
Hell, yes We would!
Kids, I'm here to teach you the secret of success. Step one, get people to pay you to teach them the secret of success. That is all.
So I gotta think that this whole thing is a scam. No one is allowed to leave without buying an armload of shitty books or something.
Plus, Sarah Palin is involved.
