You mean like how Hannity's Freedom Concerts pretty much use up the bulk of their revenue to pay all the "consultants" and office staff? What clued folks in? All of her books of hers that they bought? That a Governor who quit office managed to make millions from a failed VP bid?

She is a wonderful grifter. I can at least respect her determination to not let a sucker keep their money.

Satanic_Hamster: TFerWannaBe: My estimation of Palin's intellect has increased. Fleecing rubes probably isn't that hard, but surely doing it so thoroughly requires some greater than average intelligence.

Keep in mind, in previous years the single greatest expense her PAC had was purchasing books.  Directly from Sarah Palin's private publisher.


You expect them to go through Costco and lose some of the cut? Just because they lack ethics and morals doesn't make them stupid.

Nabb1: I find this more sad than outrageous. She's really not much better than a televangelist.


Sadder that people are falling for it.  Ideology aside, have some dignity and brains.

Ahhh...I'm just repeating variations of what's already been said.

All of the graduates found a dollar bill taped under their chair, courtesy of the former vice-presidential candidate, in order to instill the lesson "You gotta get off your butt to make a buck."

Go fark a moose already. She hasn't done shiat earn the money she's making. I guess this is the definition of irony.

Whenever I read stories like this I always wonder how I can get in on the action. The main problem being I don't think I could hide my contempt like Sarah does.

 They spend money on gold when the price is high, behavioral modification "programs", and herbal dick pills. It does not at all surprise me that they are shelling out money for Sarah Palin's political career. I've noticed that the commercials that roll during talk radio says a lot about it's audience.

Wow, can't you just feel the warm folksy wisdom just spewing forth?


I bet there's a $26 line item on her speaking engagement invoice for this.

Come on! There's still time for her to run out of money, turn to porn in desperation, descend into a drug habit and live with Charlie Sheen and Lindsey Lohan in a tower of fail that can be seen from orbit!

What this means is that he knows she will never actually spend ALL of his money, otherwise known s "finishing".

You gotta pay the person who taped the dollars to the chairs, after all. That's probably $125, union scale?

It's not hard, really.  Just remember that these people, whatever their other flaws, are eagerly and obediently lining up to hand you money; also tie a rubber band around the integrity-oriented part of your soul really tight, and after a few days it will die and fall off.
 
2013-08-02 05:03:19 PM
Good.
 
2013-08-02 05:03:50 PM
If they weren't giving their money to her a lot of them would be giving it to televangelists or to other scam artists, like that nice young man, Glenn Beck. Her donors are frightened and profoundly simple minded, old and non compos mentis, or just got the hots for teacher.

That picture always cracks me up, just for the look on that woman's face. She could not be prouder to be wearing that shirt. That woman has drained the batteries on her dildo dry, dreaming about Sarah.

I've always wondered though....who's the elf on that guys shirt behind her?

 "Come on, get real. How much of the DNC's money goes to consultants?"

Both sides are bad so donate money to a transparent conservative scam committee?

You're really sticking it to the libs, Steve Auvil.

I've seen this before, and aside from the weird alien on the guy's shirt I just noticed that whoever designed the Sarah shirt was going for a red-white-blue motif... and using Sarah's face as the "white". That's both hilarious and awful.

Granted she is a stupid cracker

Despite its stated purpose of supporting like-minded candidates, it donated to only one-giving $5,000 to Jason Smith, a conservative Republican backed by the NRA and pro-life groups who won a special election in Missouri's Eighth Congressional District in June by a margin of 67-27.

Sarah "Kingmaker" Palin is batting 1.000, libs. No wonder you're afraid of her.

Nabb1: I find this more sad than outrageous. She's really not much better than a televangelist.


Although, there are Federal Laws about how a campaign can spend donations.  Lacking even a GED in law, let alone election finance law, I have to wonder if her hubris might find her in a cell somewhere?

Not that we want to make a martyr of her, but an example, perhaps?
 
2013-08-02 05:37:32 PM
subby, where is the part about the money is being used to support her "lavish lifestyle" ?
 
2013-08-02 05:38:58 PM
This is awesome news for anyone who is on the other side. If donors are giving this nut money to spend on BS that is less cash for their shiatty agenda.

Considering that no one cares that Weiner spent $45k of campaign money to find the hacker, I doubt there are any laws about this.

But what did Palin spend money on that she shouldn't have?  It seems it is all about promoting her speaking agenda which does support candidates and her position.  It is called SarahPac for a reason.

Yeah, he only won 67-27. I'm sure he'd have been toast without Sarah's $5,000 contribution.
 
2013-08-02 05:46:51 PM
Yeah Thats the way to go.

Make sure your supporters are armed to the teeth. Talk up the "2nd Amendment Solutions".

Then steal from them.

Brilliant!
