Sarah Palin in Demand!

TrogloPundit comes up with the post title of the day, "I Wonder How That Compare to the Number of Guys Who Asked Her to the Prom?"

Troglo's talking about today's piece at the Politico, "
Sarah Palin Gets 1,070+ Invitations":

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin this week will begin accepting and rejecting the more than 1,070 invitations she has received for paid speeches and political appearances since she resigned from office, aides said.

Twenty speakers’ bureaus made offers to represent her. She has signed with Washington Speakers Bureau, which represents everyone from George and Laura Bush to Bob Woodward and Katie Couric to Alan Greenspan, Colin Powell and Rudy Giuliani.

More than 950 requests for speeches have poured in for Palin, and over 120 candidates for office have asked her to appear, including folks running for Senate, House and state Legislature, aides said.

Palin will be doing both paid speeches, which are expected to go for six figures apiece, and unpaid speeches for political and charitable causes, including Christian organizations, groups that support families with special-needs children and military families.

Palin has made no commitments so far, and Washington Speakers Bureau will start responding to the invitations this week.

She’s about 85 percent finished with her book, due out this spring from HarperCollins. Then she’ll begin looking through the inch-and-a-half thick file her lawyer, Robert Barnett, has built of offers for network and cable pundit gigs, documentaries and business opportunities.
Check the Troglo post for a leggy photo of Mrs. Palin.

Memeorandum (where Jezebel snarks that "The quitter's life looks pretty sweet for Sarah Palin ...").

Not to be an "I Told You So," but I mentioned at the time that the Left would rue the day they pushed Palin. She now has so many venues to attack the left unfettered by political office that she can do considerable damage to the left and Obama.
The left has never been very bright. The left has and will make her the 1000# powerhouse in the room.
As the gambler stated, "You have to know when to hold them, when to fold and when to walk away." Every attack will just make her stronger and larger and larger amounts of money will go her way.
One is never as smart as they think they are nor as dumb as others think they are.

I should have added that the same is true of Carrie Prejan.
Isn't interesting that the Left spent so much time trying to ruin these two women and what is happening is that both women are becoming stronger and more powerful.
You have to love watching the Left hoisted on its own petard so to speak.
