I'd use a pencil if I were you.

Let the festivities possibly, perhaps, potentially begin:

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin this week will begin accepting and rejecting the more than 1,070 invitations she has received for paid speeches and political appearances since she resigned from office, aides said.

Twenty speakers’ bureaus made offers to represent her. She has signed with Washington Speakers Bureau, which represents everyone from George and Laura Bush to Bob Woodward and Katie Couric to Alan Greenspan, Colin Powell and Rudy Giuliani.

More than 950 requests for speeches have poured in for Palin, and over 120 candidates for office have asked her to appear, including folks running for Senate, House and state Legislature, aides said.

Although, just to play it safe, those folks should probably have a Plan B.

P.S. I can't wait for the transcripts of those talks. I'm guessing they would go something like this.

I believe Wonkette has dealt with this quite nicely:

September 23rd is the big day, which gives Meg Stapleton, Palin’s on-retainer human event horizon, until September 23rd (ish) to cancel.

I particularly like this comment:

"I hope for the sake of CLSA’s fee, they fitted the she-wolf with a tracking device."

We really should start a pool.
