The Price of Palin: $15 per Word Spoken During FOX Contract


I hope she invested wisely 'cause that's probably the last bit of grifting she'll be asked to do for a long time. The whole article is fascinating, so go read it.

Sarah Palin uttered more than 189,000 words over 150 appearances on various FOX broadcasts during her three years as an analyst at the network, or $15.85 per word

With the three-year contract now expired between FOX News and Sarah Palin, there is a wealth of commentary made by the former Alaska Governor and GOP Vice-Presidential nominee to dissect.

Palin, who was paid a reported $1 million per year as a contributor to FOX since mid-January 2010 when FOX announced her signing, may not have made quite the splash her employers had hoped during this three-year period, and would, on occasion go weeks between appearances.

So, did the network get their money's worth?

    30,000 were "hopey-changey".....
    30,000 were "ya know"...
    10,000 were "god"...
    The rest was just gibberish.

    Man -- talk about overpaying.

    And just think, she's one of those people who whined about the minimum wage increase . . .

    Did they get their money's worth? Well, depends what they expected. If they merely wanted a somewhat pretty face to rant endlessly about the evils of Obama, then  I guess they did. If they wanted a future Presidential candidate who they thought might evolve into an intelligent commetator, well, I guess the joke's on their despicable network.
