Not bad at all is all I have to say and the figure is possibly a lot more. The dangerously erratic liberals were trying to bankrupt her through those bogus nuisance “ethics” lawsuits in Alaska that were dismissed for no evidence, so I hope now Sarah is laughing all the way to the bank. This woman has poven she has got what it takes to be President. Putting deals together and marketing herself has proven successful and that is what the US needs to be prosperous.




Sarah Palin Has Earned An Estimated $12 Million Since July - ABC News

Pundits can debate the political costs and benefits of Sarah Palin's decision to step down as Alaska governor, but the monetary advantages of leaving her $125,000-a-year public service post are beyond dispute.

Since leaving office at the end of July 2009, the 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee has brought in at least 100 times her old salary – a haul now estimated at more than $12 million -- through television and book deals and a heavy schedule of speaking appearances worth five and six figures.

That conservative estimate is based on publicly available records and news accounts. The actual number is probably much higher, but is hard to quantify because Palin does not publicize her earnings. She reputedly got a $7 million deal for her first book, with the bulk of that money due after her resignation as governor, and $250,000 per episode, according to the entertainment trade press, for each of eight episodes of a reality show about Alaska for the The Learning Channel. She has managed to keep a lid on reliable figures for her earnings from a multi-year contract with Fox News and a second book deal with HarperCollins.

A Palin aide responding to questions from ABC News said the governor "is now a private citizen. As a result, her fees and earnings are private."

Which Sarah Palin...The one who is the darling of the "we hate bidness as usual" Tea Partiers, or the one who shows up and supports bidness-as-usual candidates like Juan McWeasel?

I get the two confused.

We need Mencken back. I may not have always agreed with the guy, but I'll be damned if I didn't find myself agreeing with him often. :lol:

Well she did quit as governor because she couldn't afford all the legal battles being thrown at her over stuff in regards to her position. Now that she is banking millions maybe she will go back into public office :eusa_whistle:

EDIT: ROFL that didn't read how i inteded it but i'm leaving it. :)

Sandy: I want you to kill every gophers on the golf course!

Carl Spackler: Correct me if I'm wrong Sandy, but if I kill all the golfers, they're gonna lock me up and throw away the key...

Sandy: Not golfers, you great fool! Gophers! The *little* *brown*, *furry* *rodents* -!

Carl Spackler: We can do that; we don't even have to have a reason. All right, let's do the same thing, but with gophers -!

The pet rock sold for $3.95 and estimates state Dahl sold over 5 million of his pet rocks in a six month period. Even more, each pet rock was purchased for a few pennies and Dahl estimated that the packaging and accompanying manual cost him under 30 cents per rock in bulk to produce. Therefore, assuming incidentals and delivery cost Dahl another 65 cents per rock, then Dahl was profiting 3 dollars per rock. With these totals Dahl earned over 15 million dollars during a six month period in 1975 which would be estimated at $56,166,419.02 today.
