Sarah Palin hasn't been on the government payroll since quitting the Alaska governorship nearly four years ago. Since then she's been a reality show star, book author and engaged in other commercial ventures that at least aimed to promote her conservative political beliefs.
Now the 2008 GOP vice-presidential nominee is cashing in for her family - literally. She recently showed up at husband Todd Palin's snowmobile race in clothing promoting Ski-Doo, one of his sponsors, reports Alaska Dispatch.
Corporate sponsorship has been a thorny issue for Palin in the past. Shortly before Palin left the governorship an ethics complaint was filed against her for sporting Arctic Cat logo-wear at a race in which Todd was racing Arctic Cat snow machines. The charge was dismissed. But not before the then-governor shot back with the suggestion she was only wearing the jacket to stay warm.
The move comes as Palin tries to reemerge on the national political stage. She'll speak in March at the Conservative Political Action Conference.
Okay, progressive liberals will pick at this but completely ignore Facebook, GE and other progressive liberal companies ripping us off? Interesting....I think "fiscal responsibility" has officially left the building....
She's simply an easy target. While I don't agree with some of her positions and opinions, I do respect her unflappable demeanor. (I'll wager that most of the people complaining wouldn't look near as good in the apres ski-doo wear.)
@marine1 you think I think she is more sucesful then then me. At what. She quit her job as govenor during an ethics investigation, lost her race for vice president, became a national joke, was fired from job at fox and where advertizing. I assure you I am not jealous or resentful; I just detest her for what she has done to national dialoge, although I am thankful to her tea party politis which indirectly lef to obamas re-election. Indeed, to show I have no ill will toward her, I promise to be very supportive of her suceeding if she seeks the republican presidential nomination in 2016.
Why is this even on Politix, she is a private citizen trying to make her $$$. She is going to milk every cent out of her "fame" that she can. Let her, this is still " the land of the free" last time I checked.
Democrats Take on Sarah Palin representing the family's business,"Sarah Palin Shills For Husband's Company" Husband and wifes ae joint owners, Sarah Palin is reprsenting her's, and her husbands business as join owners.
@formerrepub yes I am beginning to see that, if you are successful you hated and told you don't pay your fair share, even though you pay more than anyone else....if you sit in your couch and watch TV and knock up you girl friend, the goverment will give you everything. Really f'ed up isn't it.
This wouldn't be a story if it were anyone but Sarah Palin. There's not a blooming thing wrong with it. Most people would wonder why she didn't if she didn't. So why the slap with the use of the word "shills"? Just one more example of twisting the knife in the hated conservative's back. Politix your bias is showing again.
Hey question for Politix. Are you going to do an article or poll on the Chicago Police Chief who blames Palin and the 2nd Amendment for the rampant violent crime in his city? Here's the link (yea...yea...I know, it's Foxnews and all, but give it a read).
@jessejaymes If you don't like it then don't listen! It's as each as clicking the channel up button on your remote. I'm not a Palin fan, but liberal media wants to trash republicans so bad that they resorted to the coat Sarah was wearing is just sad!
@BelinKS Oh nonsense. Sarah is a public figure and not anything more. Well she has proven herself to be a quite adroit gold digger and a rapidly aging pretty face who knows how to mine the idiots. If people are dumb enough to give that woman money then she is a public figure and subject to laughter. I made fun of John Kerry's long horseface all the years he was sticking it out front. I think the many is a spoiled rich brat. I don't pick on people out of politics for their politics. I pick on people for acting and looking funny. So what. It's not like any of them care what I think.
@jessejaymes Your right! No one in politics liberal or conservative cares what you have to say. That's a problem! Congress isn't thinking about us, just their agenda and partisan arguments. Both are to blame. Obama's new attitude of my way or the highway helps no one! If congress does come up with a bill and both the House and Senate pass it, will Obama sign it if it's not exactly what he wants?
It doesn't bother me that Sarah Palin is selling her body. A girls gotta do what a girls gotta do i would say that shes fallen a long way from the top but she was never at the top...or even mid level ha ha lmao ohhj and I just wanna highlight that Sarah palling is not an author...
