Cancelled reality show contestant Sarah Palin, who once did something of note but we can’t seem to remember what it was- was it a sex tape with Ray J?  Yeah, that was probably it: a sex tape – is out of rehab and babbling about how she might kinda sorta possibly it-could-totally-happen consider running for office again, because, fuck it, why not? It’s not like anybody takes political office seriously anymore, and it’s just a job where you kind of just show up and hang around and try to look like you’re doing something, like a receptionist at a nail parlor which is the Palin family trade other than getting knocked up in the bed of a ’77 Ford Ranchero. So, yeah, Sarah’s “…considered it, because people have requested me considering it.” which is word salad-ese for “gimmee some money“:

“It’s nice to be wooed and Sarah has a passionate and loyal following that would back her candidacy with enthusiasm,” said Penny Lee, a Democratic lobbyist and Alaska native. “But, she will need to determine how much of her support is national and how much is local.”

Nelson was blunter. “Governor Palin’s relationship with Alaska voters is more complicated than people may know,” he said. “Many voters, Republicans included, did not approve of her resignation from office and her image has taken a hit.”

Whatever you think of Palin, you have to give her this: She is a genius marketer of the “Sarah Palin” brand. She has turned herself into a celebrity. She is a well-compensated speaker, authorand now, again, Fox News Channel political analyst.

Well, sure that’s all and good. But who wouldn’t want to make a little extra non-taxable cash on the side to pay for family vacations and boob jobs? That would be Sarah.

And after months of “you never write, you never call” this showed up in my email this morning:

 

Grift. It’s a hell of a drug…
