    Must be nice to be Sarah Palin. Since leaving her political office, the former Alaska Governor has continually raked in the big bucks.

    Mrs. Palin has reportedly earned at least $12 million since leaving the office in July (09).

    According to ABC news, the big payday is due to numerous TV appearances, book deals and speaking engagements pulling in five to six figures each.

    Just how did the network come up with the number?

    Based on news accounts and book sales the $12 million figure was garnered, however the number is “probably much higher.”

    Palin will reportedly receive $7 million for her book “Going Rogue” and $2 million from the upcoming TV series, “Sarah Palin’s Alaska,” on The Learning Channel.

    Wow! Congrats.

    Whoever said that selling yourself doesn't pay off is a complete idiot.

    Her books sold more & made more money in a shorter time than Obama's book. Sarah Palin is smarter & more bankable than the Obamanation currently occupying the White house.

    I hope she continues to "soak" her base.

    What was her book about? "Going Rogue by Lynn Vincent".

    Smartest thing she ever did was resign the governorship of Alaska. She turned it over to her hand-picked Lt Governor, a guy, who if anything is more conservative than she is. Thus she secured her back while she amasses a fortune in both cash and political power that is truly mind-boggling.

    At one brilliant blow, she got rid of the little Democrat rats that were snapping at her ankles in Alaska, and freed herself to soar with the eagles. What political instincts. You got to know when to hold 'em and when to fold 'em, and does she ever.

    We could never find a better president to run this increasingly fragile nation, that could take care of us in an increasingly dangerous world full of sharks both at home and abroad that hate this country and everything we stand for.

    Question is, do we even deserve her?

    Is this not the face that could command a thousand ships?
