Palin paid $1.25M for book by July

October 28, 2009

— Former GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin reported Tuesday that she has received at least $1.25 million for her hugely anticipated upcoming memoir “Going Rogue.”

A disclosure statement released Tuesday discusses Palin’s finances from Jan. 1 to July 26, when she resigned as Alaska governor. Palin says she received the money from publisher HarperCollins for the book.

The document only provides a partial picture of the book deal because it doesn’t cover the three months she has been out of office. Palin doesn’t elaborate on her book compensation, describing the $1.25 million figure only as a “retainer” that appears to be a reference to her lucrative advance.

ComradeRedRooster,

"PP(HGA) says…" --- ComradeRedRooster

What's a "PP(HGA)"?

=====

"I'm glad someone who didn't know what a Vice-President does (twice), doesn't read a newspaper and who can't name a Supreme Court decision didn't get within one heartbeat of leading us all." ---- porch_person

"Of course your President has never run a business or met a payroll." ---- ComradeRedRooster

Most attorneys at firms don't. Their work is the "product" of the firm and that's what keeps the money rolling in. I'm not surprised you don't know this.

"Obama never served in an executive capacity, Palin was Governor." ---- ComradeRedRooster

(laughter)

Barack Obama is now Commander-in-Chief of the greatest nation in the world. He's been there for some ten months now. The election was over almost a year ago. This argument wasn't flying a year ago. Why don't you know this?

(laughter)

======

"Obama has never led a military unit, Palin led the Alaska National Guard." ----- ComradeRedRooster

Barack Obama is now Commander-in-Chief of the United States Armed Forces. He can tell the Joint Chiefs to "give him fifty" and they have to obey him. For real. He has this thing called "the football". He's in charge of that.

(laughter)

======

"Obama is aligned with extremists, Palin with Christians." ---- ComradeRedRooster

(laughter)

Barack Obama is Christian and middle of the road, a centrist. Why don't you know this?

=========

"Obama led a law review and never contributed." ----- ComradeRedRooster

President of the Harvard Law Review is traditionally bestowed upon the best student at Harvard Law. It's about the highest honor you can achieve in Law School in America. Ask anyone. There might be some argument from Stanford but you see what I mean. Hopefully.

You forgot Obama's stint as President of the Law Review at Harvard and a decade teaching Constitutional Law at the University of Chicago Law School.

I can tell you're easily impressed by Glenn Beck's college career (one class), alcoholism and drug abuse. I can also tell you're easily impressed by Rush Limbaugh's oxycontin addiction and "stellar" college career (dropout). How about Sarah Palin? We finally have an undergraduate degree with this one, in communications. Boy, that's a tough major.

(laughter)

Some conservatives are either really ignorant or really dishonest.

OMG, LMAO

Of course your President has never run a business or met a payroll. Obama never served in an executive capacity, Palin was Governor. Obama has never led a military unit, Palin led the Alaska National Guard. Obama is aligned with extremists, Palin with Christians. Obama led a law review and never contributed. LMAO

Your statement was so stupid that you are either joking or in need of assisted care.

Quoting PP "(Laughter)"

texburgh said…If she puts everything she knows in a book, it will be thin.

And the president was a community organizer, junior senator from one of the most corrupt cities in America and author of the Audacity of Hope (if you call stealing our children and grandchild's future hope). Some people are easily impressed I guess.

What's there to hate? She's the best gift to the Democrats and late night show punch lines we've seen for a long, long time.
