Perhaps it wasn't the best move for Sarah Palin, the politician, to resign as Governor of Alaska, but for Sarah Palin, the mom, it was the smartest thing she could have done.
The negative press her family has received is unprecedented. She should give a perfectly manicured middle-finger to all those who called her daughter a slut, her husband a knuckle-dragger and her baby-- oh wait, it's not even her baby, right?-- a retard.
Sarah should use her popularity to make millions from publishing and television appearances. As Alaska's head moose, she only made $125,000 per year. As a pundit, she'll make sick money. She could follow in Jessica Simpson's footsteps and design a line of high heel shoes. Revlon could sign her to endorse "Hockey Mom" lipstick. Her speaking fees alone will put her "bastard grandson" through college.
If you're going to be in the public eye, with a bulls-eye on your back, you might as well have a savings account that equals the GDP of a small Latin American country.
Run, Sarah, Run... all the way to the bank.
