After quitting her job as Alaska Governor Palin has devoted herself to less-demanding activities that have kept her in the public eye and provided a handsome income besides. She wrote (or, more precisely, coauthored) a bestselling memoir that made at least $7 million. She starred in a television travelogue that earned her a reported $2 million. She makes $1 million a year from a three-year contract as an exclusive “contributor” to Fox News. And she has given dozens of speeches at rates that sometimes top $100,000 per appearance (although she agreed to do this weekend’s tea party rally in Iowa for free, organizers say). That adds up to an average gross income of at least $5 million a year since she left her $125,000-a-year job as governor.

    Once again an image that tells a story, piles of dollars, the stars & stripes & a perfect smile. Is a teabagger the same thing in your culture as it is in ours Alex?
    Wonderful work, as always mate.

    And this isnt where American government is right now? Dont be so jaded, yes its a different way of thinking, but as to how things are with the debt ceiling, dont look like the other side is doin to hot either! Like the photo—from die hard republican.

  • This artwork doesn’t have anything to do with the present government situation.
    It’s about Palin and her profiteering character. On February 6, 2010, Palin appeared as the keynote speaker at the inaugural Tea Party convention in Nashville, Tennessee. Ms. Palin’s speaking fee was reported to be $100,000, which some in the Tea Party movement criticized as being too high for fiscal conservatives to pay.

    And about who is hot or not, here is something for you
