TURLOCK, Calif. (AP) - Sarah Palin leveled criticism at California's attorney general and others raising questions about her visit to a cash-strapped university, telling supporters that students had better things to do than dive through Dumpsters to find out how much she earns speaking.
"Students who spent their valuable, precious time diving through dumpsters before this event in order to silence someone ... what a wasted resource," she told the crowd dining in the campus cafeteria. "A suggestion for those Dumpster divers: Instead of trying to tell people to sit down and shut up ... spend some time telling people like our president to finally stand up," she said.

It's not a wasted resource, it is a resume enhancer for liberals seeking jobs with the DNC.
She’s probably not familiar with that strata of society. Looking for papers linked to her was most likely secondary to obtaining dinner.
She sure was smart enough to slice and dice jerry brown.
From the article:
Friday's sold-out dinner will bring in more than $200,000, making the gala the most successful fundraiser in the university's history, said university foundation board president Matt Swanson.(snip)
In preparation for the 2008 Republican vice-presidential candidate's arrival, workers transformed the dining hall into a glitzy gala hall, draped with crimson tablecloths, festooned with orchids and surrounded by chain-link fences.
So...if this is the most successful fundraiser they've ever had, and they're using the homely, lowly dining hall on campus (not some 5-star hotel/restaurant) so the guests are actually at the College, then who cares what Palin's speaking fee was?! or that they needed temporary security fencing?
SHEESH! What a bunch of morons!
I would say, raise the voting age to 21 for all college students, except one of the "student" protestors/"divers" is 26...she should get a life.
Yes Ms. Lewis its because they have security concerns due to people like you.
(not some 5-star hotel/restaurant)
There are no 5-star hotels or restaurants in Turlock (although there is an IHOP). There isn't even an Olive Garden. 3 would be as high as they go.
Oh, and ditto the salt shaker thing.
