So what are some of the biggest names of the Republican Party up to, now that the GOP is itself in the dumps? Well, some of them are hitting the circuit as motivational speakers.
Colin Powell, Rudy Giuliani and Steve Forbes have joined up with the “Get Motivated!” seminars run by Peter and Tamara Lowe, and are traveling the country to speak to business groups.
And get this — according to TPM, it would have cost over $2,000 to see Rudy two years ago, but now you can see him for $4.95 (or send your entire office for $19.)
I once knew someone who was sent to a motivational speaker type thing as an office punishment. You’d have to do something pretty bad I guess.
What I don’t understand is what people are being motivated to do. Sell out their principles for expediency? Oh, wait, now I get it.
