I don't hate Sarah Palin, but I believe she brings nothing to the table, and has no place anywhere near a position of leadership. BUT... if Fox is willing to pay her $16 per word for her opinion, why the heck wouldn't she take it? I sure would.

Oh, and here's an aside for Conservatives and Republicans: this is what Fox thinks of you, that they pay Sarah Palin $16 per word because they think she speaks to/for you.

How do you possibly break her glossolalia into individual words? Is "yoobetcha" a one-word interjection or the two-word pseudophrase "you betcha"? Is "awgeez" one word, two ("aw, geez"), or three ("aw, gee whiz")? Is "lamestream" one word or two? What about the guttural mumbling sounds? Do you count individual phonemes?
 
2013-01-29 10:46:39 AM  
She will continue to say stupid/offensive things to remain semi-relevant in the bat-shiat crazy world of the extreme right in order to sell books. Much like Coulter, the stupid and the offensive will increase as her relevancy decreases in order to remain in the headlines.

She's dumb AND stupid, but she has the base cunning standard to those of her ilk (junkyard dogs, sewer rats, evangelical Christians, seagulls, NRA members)

Sorry, I have to disagree. Sarah Palin makes George W. Bush look like the chairman of MENSA. Yes, she figured out a way to parlay her word salad skills into getting paid, but that doesn't preclude her from being dumb AND stupid.

Yet Republicans think they know how to manage money better.
 
2013-01-29 10:58:34 AM  
I think there's a fundamental error in how they're assuming this is billed. I would expect her bill to look something like this:

Bill for services rendered, youbetcha, by me, Sarah Palin, dontchaknow:
=============================
189,221 words at $0.05/word:  $9,461.05
Knowing how to make those words whip up the mouthbreathers: $2,990,538.95
---------------------------------------------
Total: $3,000,000.00

See, it's not the words you're paying for, it's for the "talent" in knowing how to say them.

Most writers are also able to communicate their messages with about (oh, I don't know) a quarter or fewer of the words that fall out of Palin's loquacious head.

That's why I think that this is an amazingly high number. Not because $16 a word is high, but because once the floodgates are open, the words pour out. I wouldn't have been at all surprised to hear that she only made $1 per word since she talks so damned much...

No, at a million a year, "meaningful" would net her $500,000 per word.

It is a moot point since Sarah Palin can only count to 10 anyway. "Here's your 160 bucks, see you tomorrow."

$arah Palin's "rise" was all marketing and positioning, and once she outlived her usefulness, she was cast into the trash heap right alongside all the others, like Katherine Harris.

$arah was chosen initially to lure in Hillary supporters who weren't enamored with Barack Obama. The GOP in their infinitely wrongheaded worldview assumed that women would flock to $arah simply because she had the same genitalia they did, just like they believed black people supported Obama simply because he was black.

Her looks were the biggest draw in the GOP's perspective. The men wanted to fark her and the women wanted to BE her. Because she also had a large family and a Ken doll husband, she was perceived as attractive but non-threatening. It was political porn of the highest order.

Mix in some folksy, homespun platitudes about those gosh darn Liberals and their media machine, a few conveniently placed Bibles and a fireplace draped with American flags and the GOP was ready to go.

What they didn't count on was how all-the-way-to-the-bone STUPID she was.

At the same time, she was also conniving and saw the whole spectacle as a means to further her own ambition. Once the campaign was over and the GOP funded public relations team went away, she was left to her own devices and her true ignorance and self aggrandizing agenda became totally exposed. She hurled at light speed towards irrelevance and ultimately became "forgotten but not gone" until Fox finally pulled the plug.

I am sure she still has her "true believers" out there...frumpy, 60+ farm wives who see her as some sort of prophet and mouthpiece of "REAL AMERICA" who are more than happy to keep dumping money into her PAC, but to the rest of the world, she has become irrelevant and a punch line. As has been pointed out, she is on the wrong side of 45 and as is witnessed by the getup she was wearing in the grocery store pic, she is fighting the aging process by trying to dress like a 25 year old and just looking pathetic in the process. I just hope for her own sake she was frugal with the money she did make.

Palin derangement syndrome continues.

There are people who actually count how many words Palin says. That is really pathetic.

Given the amount of viewers she probably had in the first few years when she was still a Tea Party darling, I suspect it's probably good value for money.

My African students in the Peace Corps spoke English more properly than this dumbass, and they were lucky to make $16 per month. I think the rest of the world hates us because we value stupidity when they have scrapped and scraped to crawl out of poverty with their education and still get nowhere.
