Upended by the Bended Straw

Having too much faith in your own lies results in hubris which will destroy you.  Part one:

Reverend Haggard was upended by a bended male prostitute.  Not sure if the straw (that he used to snort meth off the gay hooker’s cock) was a bendy one or not.

On straws, hubris, lies and faith, part two:

Sarah Palin decides to mock the lamestream media for their reporting that her speaking contracts included the kinds of diva demands we’d associate more with Madonna than Mama Grizzy:

“First, um, I got my water… do I have my straws? I want my straws. And I want ’em bent, please, thank you. At least that’s what I read in some of the lamestream media outlets. Is that I was demanding straws or some ridiculous thing. So, I’m just glad that we got some of those contractual demands out of the way and finally settled.”

At the time Sarah mocked the media for reporting on ridiculous rumors, the contract in question was being suppressed.  She has known so much success in suppressing records inconvenient to her truth that I guess she thought she would get away with it again!  Not so fast.  There’s a grizzly killer over at Palingates:

The top-secret contract between Sarah Palin’s agents, the Washington Speakers Bureau and the CSU Stanislaus Foundation has been published!  This happened in response to the ruling of the Superior Court of the State of California.
The bendy straws are definitely in the contract, which came to light because a couple student ‘dumpster divers’ ran across a discarded copy (which became the subject of said court decision).  Sarah mocks these students during her speech:

FWIW, she got paid over seventy five grand for thirty minutes of speaking (no Q&A). She was paid with public money, yet fought to keep the contract secret. Now you know.
