stuhayes2010: 5 years, she'll be bankrupt and blaming the libs because no one will want to hear her.

There is always Playboy. I imagine many would pay to see naked pictures of her, just for the eww factor.

/i might buy it...but never bought a Playboy before

seriously, though - it's not just that sarah palin is dangerously unqualified for any high office, it's that she is an appallingly awful person. she's cynical, greedy, lazy, petulant, mean, angry and willfully ignorant. if i were a member of the GOP, i'd run far, far away from this nasty piece of work.

Blues_X: She's totally committed to conservatism, as long as it brings in a large paycheck.

That's some quality "leadership".


I think she's embraced the "Linda Chavez" model of conservative poltical activism.

Chavez, a former regan Cabinet offical basically supports herself and most of her extended family by running several "advocacy groups" for that purportedly support conservative and pro-life polticians. The groups constantly send out fund-raising letters designed to appeal to the , uh, "Fox News watching" demographic, who respond Pavlov-like with huge wads of cash, of which Chavez and her family pocket 90-99% as "administrative overhead"

And she not alone in this. There are several "Poltical consulting firms", all Republican for some reason, that also specialize in finding, obscure, no-hope, candidates running against big name Democrats; and sending out national fundraising letters on their behalf. The out of stater don't know the candidate has no chance so they go "ooh a Chance to knock off John Kerry/Nancy Pelosi/Barney Frank!" and open their checkbooks. The candiate typically recives less than 10% of the money raised, the rest is consumed as "overhead" of by services the candidate is contracually bound to order from the fundraiser such as polling or printing (at ridiculously inflated prices).

As her recent decision to quit her day job shows; Sarah has absolutely no interest in actually holding any sort of elected office, or full time job. What she wants is to maximize the financial potential of making people THINK she might run

Terror...right.

Well I think they're only terrified if she gets in power. They also know it's a crazy longshot, up there with skookums liberal re-education camps. Sure it could happen, but I think I have a better chance getting an "around the world" with Christina Hendricks.

You're right, but the thing is that the modern GOP seems to have no problem with cynical, greedy, lazy, petulant, mean, angry and willfully ignorant candidates because they think (apparently rightly) that such candidates appeal to their cynical, greedy, lazy, petulant, mean, angry and willfully ignorant base.

I'll pay Palin $10 an hour to clean my house, and that's about it.


Oh, I dunno. I was honestly thinking of hiring her to stand around and look Mavericky during next year's fantasy football draft at mi casa. Think she'll moan wildly every time someone drafts a 49er if I throw in another $5K?

You own me a new keyboard

To be fair, if the group is trying to raise $100,000 to rent a large place, provide food, security, transportation, advertising and maybe hire one of those ever-so-touchy event planners we heard so much about this morning, they might have a case.

Though I'd have her go "49er? More like 69er...woooooo!" and then have her make dirty gestures at the closest female.

As much as I hate Sarah - she isn't charging it either.

Someone with no official connections to her is trying to raise it for a non-stated purpose which may or may not include paying Sarah.


The whole thing sounds pretty shady, but from the Team Sarah and the Iowa Family Policy Center, not necessarily Sarah herself.

I wonder what they are going to do with the ~50k$ they've raised already when Sarah doesn't show up?
