(Newser) – An adult-entertainment producer says smut magnate Larry Flynt overpaid the Sarah Palin lookalike hired to star in an upcoming porn release, Lisa Derrick notes on Firedoglake. Flynt’s help wanted ad offered $2,000 to $3,000, with no expectation of more off-color sex acts, which producer Bill Margold called “remarkably fair. That would spoil the person. $600 is about the going rate.”

“Look, Palin's not that extraordinary-looking,” said the producer whose Endless Lust is at the less graphic-sounding end of his film credits. “With a little make up and prosthetics anyone can look like Winnie the Pooh.”
