The quitter's life looks pretty sweet for Sarah Palin, who now has over 1,070 invitations for speeches and appearances. But first she has to finish her book — which, unsurprisingly, will include a lot of sports anecdotes.
Since her history-making, Ashley-Judd-bashing resignation speech, Sarah Palin has received 950 invitations to bring her dead-fish metaphors and MacArthur misquotes to audiences around the country. She'll get a six-figure fee for paid speeches, but will also work pro bono for Christian groups, military families, and families of special-needs kids (look out for lots more talk about death panels). Palin has also received requests for appearances from 120 candidates for state and national office, who clearly think a mix of incoherence and misinformation is a recipe for success. Worked for Bush!
