Oh Joy, Bristol Palin to hit lecture circuit
Hey, look, another Palin is cashing in on the fame bestowed to their family by John McCain! Joining her millionaire mother in the pursuit of more attention is Bristol Palin, the world’s most famous teenage mother.
According to the Associated Press, Ms. Palin will regale the lower 48 with her knowledge of God knows what–having babies out of wedlock, and screwing up your relationship with your child’s father, or some such. OK, that’s not fair. Mr. Johnston has done his fair share of putting the fun in dysFUNctional family, after all.
Still, one wonders what Bristol’s listeners will learn from hearing her wax eloquent. We have an idea what Sarah’s daughter will earn, however. For each appearance, she’ll be raking in a fee of between 15 and 30 thousand smackers. Do not adjust your computer monitor.
Yes, there’s nothing like spending a few months or years touring the country speaking on the challenges of being a single mom to help you in your pursuit of raising your child as a single mom.
Single Source Speakers, the agency representing young Ms. Palin, also handles such notable personalities as Alan Keyes, and a whole lot of motivational life-coach people you’ve never heard of who don’t take in nearly as much as the worldly and knowledgeable Bristol. Here’s how they are hawking her wares:
Bristol Palin, Sarah Palin’s oldest daughter, took the country by storm practically overnight when she was introduced Americans during the 2008 presidential campaign. Her teen pregnancy and the birth of her son Tripp, resulted in millions of Americans discussing the issues surrounding teen pregnancy.
Interesting! Yes, who can forget Bristol taking the country by storm? Wasn’t she scintillating on the campaign trail, awkwardly holding hands with Levi. Holding her mother’s dons syndrome child while mom gave speeches. Being pregnant.
Word has it that Palin has also inked a book deal, so this 15 minutes ain’t going anywhere fast, America. Sit back and enjoy.
