Sarah Palin is just like you and me, dontcha know! She hunts reindeer and bald eagles from her helicopter, reads every single magazine and newspaper on Earth and has more nuclear knowledge than a Kenyan Muslin. Well now the famous half-term governor and hillbilly grifter is also richer than pretty much everyone else in “Real America.”
Since leaving office at the end of July 2009, the 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee has brought in at least 100 times her old salary – a haul now estimated at more than $12 million — through television and book deals and a heavy schedule of speaking appearances worth five and six figures.
That conservative estimate is based on publicly available records and news accounts. The actual number is probably much higher, but is hard to quantify because Palin does not publicize her earnings.
So, hey, congratulations, Sarah Palin, you retard!
